Question about Omega Trane Furnace Draft Inducer Blower Fasco # A269

Open Question

I have a small generator to run my furnace if the power goes out. The furnace technician said I would probably need a "battery capacitor" because the furnace would probably be finicky about the power and wouldn't work. Where do I get such a thing and can they just be plugged in in-line?

Trying to driveRHEEM RAMB-036JAZ using a Honda eu2000 generator. How to hook this up?


You have to very careful powering up home appliances on portable generators due to back feed problems to incoming lines. I would recommend getting an experienced electrician to show and explain the problems with what you are considering. Many linemen have been shocked due to backfeed. The real way to perform this is to get the controller that is put on home generating systems such as generac type systems. These automatically isolate line supply from backup power from home generators, thereby eliminating shock hazards to linemen.
If prolonged shortage, you could disconnect the wires into the furnace and install an extension cord from the furnace to the 120 volt plug on the generator. Most fans are powered on gas furnace on 120 volt. Make sure your voltage needed on your furnace before attempting emergency power up. I have seen some furnaces power by 240 volt fan motors. If it is 240 volt then use the 240 plug wired correctly. PS when you get an electrician to help you with the wiring, check out the requirement to provide grounding, to lessen your shock hazard.
Hope this helps.

Lights dim when running o generator


You are probably trying to run to many things at the same time. Electric water heater, refrigerator, furnace blower, cook range, to many lights.

Generator was running fine and then the electrical output quit while the engine was running.


Sounds like you did overload the capacity of the generator. What has happened is that the generator was happily running away producing the electricity required for approximately an hour and then an appliance such as an air conditioner, furnace, refrigerator, water heater, or similar large amperage draw fixture decided it was time to kick on for its cycle, or perhaps two or three of them kicked on at the same time, thereby raising the amperage requirement beyond the capability of the generator. All heavy duty appliances run at a given amperage but when they kick on for a cycle they draw almost 50 percent or more amps. Generators rated at 6000 amps or less will not power an entire home or business. When using this size of generator, disable some of your electrical items in the home by unplugging or switching off, and only connect the most important items needed for emergency use. A 3500 watt generator will only run a few lights and a television, plus only one appliance. This means that you could plug in the refrigerator and run it until it has gotten cold enough, then unplug it & connect the furnace or air conditioner or water heater so that they can do there job. Eventually you will be able to rotate through each appliance in turn, and hope the power will return soon. Your generator will likely have blown a capacitor, resistor or some similar repairable item. Some good quality generators will have an overload breaker installed, that trips before doing any damage and all that is needed is to find it and reset it, in order to continue using the generator.

My trane xr12 wont run. i checked the capacitor and its good but still nothing is working.


Hello my name is Heath it will be my pleasure to assist you. First thing to do is go to the furnace take off the lower blower door and locate the circuit board turn the power off to the furnace. In the circuit board there should ba a small car like fuse usually 3 or 5 amps check the fuse it is probably blown replace the fuse with the same amperage fuse and then turn the power back on on the furnace and check the operation of the furnace.

THE GENERATOR HAS NO ELECRICITY COME OUT I,TRY NEW CAPACITORS AND DOING THE SAME


if your engine is running ok then adjust the speed control screw, I had a honda generator that lost it's output voltage until i increased the engine running speed screw, i guess there must be some kind of speed sensor!!, i hope this is usefull. COLIN

The motor runs fine but will not generate any electricity


With the generator shut off.....
At the generator side of the generator we are looking for a small + and - sign on 2 connection terminals.......you may have to take a small cover off.
What we want to do is re magnetize the generator.
With a regular 9 volt battery.....or almost any small battery will do.....momentarily add the battery power to these terminals.....just for a sec......and thats it.......it's re magnetized.
Your generator will charge now.....if it was in need of a re magnetizing.
This is the cure for 70% of no output when running generators.

Furnace runs on utility power but not on back up generator power


I had the same problem with a GH8 Goodman. In the instructions for the furnace are the sentences, "1.Measure resistance between the neutral (white) connection and one of the burners. 2. Resistance should measure 10 ohms or less." Mine was .2 ohms with grid power. It was in the Meg/ohms when on the generator. I made a special extension cord to open the ground at the female end of the cord. Then I connected the neutral (white) wire in side the furnace directly to the ground connection inside the furnace and it worked. Needless to say I was very happy. I do not recommend doing this yourself. This is just my way to stay warm this winter when the power goes out. JohnS
