Check the venting to the outside, to make sure it's not obstructed in any way. There may be an issue with the overheating circuit, too. In case you have misplaced your Owners Manual, I have included a link to it, that you can download and print for future reference. Pay particular attention to page 15. If all else fails, call Empire Comfort Systems 800-851-3153 and ask for Rich or John in Technical Service Dept.

Hope this helps to heat up things for you. Please let me know.

Does the furnace stays off?.
Furnace are ment to cycle on and off because of limits .If you set to 70 furnace would cycle several times before reaching that temperature.
Just make sure your filters are clean and you got proper return air flow because lack of air flow will cause furnace to shut off sooner than normal

Coleman mach furnace wont stay running. i turn the thermostat down until i hear it click, then i turn it back up to get the furnace to kick sometimes and sometimes not. blower will always kick on...

Hi, I don't know if you are still having a problem, but it sound like the flame sensor on the unit is dirty and need to be cleaned. If it has a automatic pilot, it will have a flame sensor. Its made of porcelin with a metal rod coming out the end, laying next to the pilot flame. Just 1 screw holds it in place. Remove it and clean the tip with steel wool or a piece of sanding cloth. If you don't have this set up, I would need more info on the unit, model and serial number. You may also have a faulty thermostat, but I do believe it is a flame sensor.

I have a Johnson aire ease ultra 90 gas furnance. I also have a outdoor wood furnance that has its own thermostat. On the original thermostat I turn the blower in the on position. I then set the outdoor...

I would first eliminate one furnace from the equation, the exterior wood furnace... turn its tstat down. Will the gas furnace then operate normally? Can you run the blower manually, as in summer mode? Make sure your filters are clean also... that can sometimes overload the blower.

I can't get the furnace to come on when the inside house temp drops below the set point on the thermostat. If it does come it does not stay on long enough to raise the house temp. HVAC guys here two...

Sounds as though another problem is showing up. Verify T-stat is sending the red 24volts (alt current) through the White wire. This can be done at the t-stat or the furnace whichever is easier to access. At t-stat your meter will show 24volts from red to any wire that the t-stat is not jumping to. So if you put on lead on Red and other on White and 24 shows up the t-stat is not connecting that and the furnace will (NOT) turn on heat. If you get 24 on Y or G but nothing on White then the t-stat is (Good) and the furnace in not kicking on.
To diagnose furnace look for flashing light on board. count flashes and read furnace diagram for info. Furnace diagnosis will take some patience and observation of what happens when. Problems can be Airflow, or parts. It takes some watching. I've found tools jammed in vent stacks, blocked (dirty) evaporators and failing sensors or relays. All causing the units to start but not stay lit.
