Question about American Standard Heating & Cooling

Open Question

We have an American Standard Freedom 80 Gas Furnace.It is set on heat at 73 degrees and will only blow cold air throught the vents. We have tried turning off the theromstat and the breaker to the unit and then turning it back on. The little red light flashes fast until the unit kicks on then it flashes twice and it blows cold air into the house. Please help....we are freezing :(

SOURCE: blows cold air

Sounds like you have a problem upon start up of heat. Your safteys maybe shutting you down, and restting voltage to your curcuit board allows you to have another heating cycle. Honestly you may due justice calling a tech.

SOURCE: The furnace is blowing warm air even if the thermostat low.

The only thing that tells the unit to come on and off is the thermostat so I would definatly say it is it. When you turn the system back on, does the a/c run normally? If it does, then it's the problem with the heating side of the tstat. Also, does the fan come on when you put it to on and then turn of when you switch it back to auto? If it does, then the system is working fine, its the t-stat. Let me know if you have any more problems.

SOURCE: American Standard blower will not run

Sounds like motor has failed. If the red light is blinking it may be telling you what is wrong by the number of blinks. It maybe locked out for some reason or loose wire. Try turning off breakers to inside unit for 5 mins and try again, this may reset unit. But it sounds like a bad motor or circut board. Try running with stat in on position instead of auto in cooling mode.

SOURCE: I have an American Standard

EIther the valve is faulty or the ingiter is corroded or faulty. The inside of the ingniter has a shaft with a probe that keeps heated so it can ignite. It can be corroded.

I have a American Standard furnace Freedom 80 Mod# AUD080C936H3 and am looking for a manal or can you tell me how the exauhst is done. Can I use PVC


Hello, The only time pvc is allowed is if the Furnace is 90% or greater in effiecency, the combustion gases are cooler due to the fact that two heat exvhangers are used. One pipe will be you air intake and the other the exhaust and they can be routed through the roof or sidewall. If the Furnace is 80% then you must use double wall vent pipe and have it connected to either a liner in a chimney or routed through a roof but pvc can not be used.

Unless we set the thermostat very high, like 80 degrees, the heater will blow cold air. When the heat does blow, it will eventually stop blowing heat and the fan will continue to blow cold air.


Check and make sure the filter is clean. This sounds like a restriction in the system. If the unit has central cooling make sure ther indoor evaporator coil is clean at the furance.The unit may be cycling the burners on and off at the high heat limit , fan/limit control. You can also eliminate the thermostst from the furance. Turn power off at the furnace and disconnect the wiring from the thermostat. Jumper the red and white wire together. Turn the furnace back on. The furance should run in the heating mode. Try this and see if the problem is still there.

Just had an American Standard Freedom 95 furnace installed today. The installer left after turning it on and didn't get a good check of the system--will be back tomorrow, but it's cold tonight. I noticed...


Most furnaces have a tech manual inside. Under the blower cover should be a trouble shooting guide. Call the dude and tell him what the problem is. You have no other source of heat and you live in alaska?. If I was you I would invest in a comfort glow gas vent free heater for emergency. No power is needed to operate the heater.

American Standard Freedom 80 - 9 blinks - Ignition issue


I will try to help. Your furnace has to have a good ground before the igniter will work. The draft fan starts purges for a few seconds and the ignitor is supposed to come on. If not check to see if the contacts on the air switch on draft motor are closing. If you ahve changed the ignitor that is not your problem. Another possible problem is the baord that feeds the ignitor. But check the air switch first Rus. Keep in touch.
