Look on the motor wiring diagram, being that it is yello would lead me to believe that this is
a muti-speed blower. If this is true, look for a place on the terminal board that says "Park"Otherwise make sure you tape it off and move it out of the way

Sounds like limit switch issue. Furnace heats up, high temp limit switch opens, fan will stay on. GMP model is older and do not have the codes.
May be over fired, have airflow problem, to cause the limit to open.
Next time before shutting off power, try to find the limit, it has two wires that connect to a 1.5 x 2 inch card mount to the furnace fire wall. tap on it and see if the blower stops. If so replace the limit.

I hooked up a coleman electric furnace to a janitrol condenser heat pump . The t-stat wires on electric furnace are red white green and yellow. I added a blue for common off of transformer for digital...


Hi, first of all you need to get a hand full of 5 amp auto type fuses and install one on the hot leg of the 24 volt secondary side of the transformer. Just use 2 female crimp on connectors and put the fuse in the middle of the hot wire. Saves $$$$ on replacing transformers when you have a dead short on the low or high voltage side of any transformer, just a trick of the trade, food for thought. Fuses are much cheaper. On your electric unit, you may not need the common on this to operate the digital stat if it has batteries. This may be your dead short. On the Janitrol condenser, the red is your 24v as you no. They are using blue in place of yellow for cooling. Red is hot, W is heat, G for fan, and blue is cooling on this Janitrol. Keep in mind you are connecting to a heat-pump also, so make sure the wiring is correct. Are you installing this for secondary Heat?? More then likely, the blue common you have added is the dead short as the janitrol uses the blue for a cooling relay in place of yellow. Anyway, use the 5 amp fuse, trick of the trade to save on the transformers. Please keep me posted, as I know know you have this under control.

Im swithcing from a Janitrol to a hunter ''stat'',


You have the wrong therm. This one will not work, you need one that works with all 7 wires. You probably have a heat pump or aux heat. The only hunter that will work is the one for a heat pump. The back of the packages will tell you more info.

I replaced my Janitrol 7 wire thermostat with an RTH7500 which now controls my heatpump system. The switches on the Janitrol were cool - off - heat - Em Heat. Does that mean I have auxiliary heat? There is...


There should be electric heat strips in the airhandler.

They automatically come on when the unit goes into defrost, the thermostat is turned up more than 7 degrees over the indoor temp or if the outdoor temp is just so cold the HP cannot keep up.

Tat is your auxillary or emergency heat.

What does the new t-stats installers booklet say that the 0170 function and #2 #7 options are for?

If it is for gas vs elec heat then set it on the elec option.

The difference is that in gas heat systems the blower comes on a few min AFTER the furnace fires up to allow the heat exchanger to get hot.
In an electric furnace the blower has to come on emediatly because the heat strips get hot emediatly and if the blower is delayed the system will shut of in high temp overload.

Goodman gmp075-3 led blinks 5 times


I Also have the same and other problems with my furnace model # GDS80703AXBB. First the LED kept blinking 4 times and I too jumped the primary limit, that didn't kelp. After several attemps I moved the wires going to the circut board and everything starting working again. After a week It stopped working again, so I pulled the plug out of the circut board checked all wires for for a bad connection plugged it back in. Now the LED blinks 6 times again I move the wires. Then the LED blinks 3 times. Then the transformer burns out. I have burned out 2 transformers and I have ordered a new circut board.
