I have a four year old coleman furnace in my house. Last night the meter went bad and we lost half of our power. Now my furnace will not work even though I have 110v to it. I cannot find any lights for a trouble code.

If the fuse on the circuit board tests good, you will need to replace the PC Board. They are unfortunately susceptible to surges and brown-outs.

We lost one leg of our power last night for about 3 hours, I unplugged everything but our 4 year old coleman furnace. Now I have 120v to it, but nothing works, and I cannot see a code light. Is it on the...


If you are in the USA, this is very unusual that you would lose one/half of your power since it comes from the same transformer. Still, you say you have lost 1/2, I have to accept this ... When this condition exists, I would expect that one-half of your main panel is now (was) dead and all 220 volt circuits would not work (since they receive only one leg).

Your York furnace, you do not say if it is gas (electronic or thermocouple) or electric ... I am not familiar with this model. If it is electric, I would expect it runs on more than 220 depending on its capacity. Still, the control panel probably runs on no more than 120 and perhaps 12 or 24 volts. I would be looking for a fuse on the control panel. If you have a volt meter, insure the panel is receiving either AC or DC power. Replace the fuse if required. If there is power there to the control ... but nothing happening in the furnace, there could be a fault on the board. You did say the thermostat is functioning properly.

Some models require a 5 or so minute delay in starting or changing modes or temps ... please keep this in mind though I am certainly not implying this is the the case with your unit.

This is what I have to say ... I am not a heater specialist, though there are experts here who are. If you desire, you can contact any of the experts on line (there is a cost associated with this - message or chat). Simply click on the link that mentions chat with a specialist ... or the link to find a York Heater expert.

When you evaluate this answer, please keep in mind I have tried to help you and suggested to you a course of action to follow beyond my expertise.

Thank you for your interest n FixYa.com and I hope you get your machine going easily, simply and economically.

Thanks.

How old is my Coleman Evcon Furnace, Modle Number: DGAT056BDE? I can't seem to find a Manufacturing date sticker. It was claimed to only be a year old, now living here a year it would now be 2 years old. ...


The Serial Number would really help in defining how old your Coleman furnace is. The model you have is used predominantly in manufactured housing. To find the Serial Number, you will need to remove the upper shroud of the furnace. There should be a sticker or plate on the back of that shroud of just inside the housing of the furnace, that will give you the Model # & Serial #. Armed with that, you can do a little detective work, as to it's age.

Sounds like a fuel or ignition problem. If the unit does ignite when its reset it could be a bad Cad eye or primary control. If it does not light off when reset,DO NOT re-rest anymore and call the Heating contractor back to inspect and repair.

Burner flame going out on windy days on Coleman Evcon LP furnace


This sounds like a bad heat exchanger. It is possible that you do not see the crack because the crack is closed when the heat exchanger is cold (or room temp). Allow the furnace to heat up, this will allow the expansion of the crack. Turn the power off and examine the heat exchanger while it is still hot.

I have a 15 year old Coleman Propane 130,000 Btu force air furnace, Model #BGU13020 forced air furnace. Afer the unit runs for 5 to 10 minuets, the flame will start to shuter and then it will trip the heat...


DO NOT attempt to repair this yourself. LP gas is a very unforgiving gas. Sounds like your heat exchanger is plugged. Yes it can be removed and checked, BUT it is not recommended. Trust your local repair tech. Any heater 15+ years old should be discarded.

Amana Air Command 80, 20 years old. Electronic ignition. Furnace does not start. Good power to furnace. Themostat properly set. Where do I start looking? Bob


Hello Bob,
Welcome to fixya,

You said, Amana Air Command 80, 20 years old.
Electronic ignition.
Furnace does not start.
Good power to furnace.
Thermostat properly set.
Where do I start looking?

Sounds like you possibly have one or more bad jets if the unit is a gas furnace!
Let me know how it goes.

WOW, listen to this story!
I understand you are looking for the solution to fix your furnace your self.
But I want to tell you my story about my smart wife and our furnace.
When we moved into this house the furnace was 20 years old and she suggested that we put a new one that it will save us money.
I laughed at her and replied if it's not broken why fix it!
Six years later it finally broke down and I replaced the whole furnace and central air unit with a new one.
Our utility bill went down $100 dollars a month!
That's $7200. that I lost over 6 years due to not respecting my wife's power of reasoning!
If you can afford it or can get financing replace any unit 20 years old and it will pay for it self.
Can you imaging $1200. a year for 20 years is $24,000 dollars I'm saving with a new and efficient unit.
Do the math!!!!!!!!!

Thank You,
Huuum, Hope I gave you some good fatherly advice.
