Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

Have a Coleman Evon Furnace, manufactured for Zone 1, in my 1998 Module Home. Have had 4 thermostats put on . Everyone has the same problem. Works fine for first week and then will not read correct temp. Can set for specific temp and will go way past before cutting off, and sometimes I can cut the temp up to the reading and it will quit. Wait a few minutes and it will read the correct temp. The thermostat seems to be working, but will location of thermostat be the problem. Its the only thing I can think of at this point, and is there a way to move a thermostat. This one is located sort in a nook between the open kitchen area, and the open living room.I'm tired of having thermostats replaced.......thanks!

Hang a small thermometer next to the thermostat to see how much it is off by. You did not mention what kind of thermostat you have been installing. Check in the instruction manual to see if it has a heat anticipator. Some thermostats have a small winding (heater) inside it that will anticipate the temperature raise and turn off the heater a few degrees before set poit. If this was not set, this would be your problem. If it is factory set, sometimes they come with a small resistor that must be installed in the wiring to help with the anticipator. If you find that the thermostat is still way off, yes you may need to relocate it. Kitchens can fool thermostats by the heat from the stove and refrigerator. You can either relocate the thermostat by changing the location of the wires and base or install a wireless unit that is easily mounted where you want without running wires.

Fan won't blow on ac, but works on furnace


The fans heat speed is low speed and the cool speed is high speed. High speed is controlled by the fan relay normally open switch, the low speed is controlled by the temperature delay or time delay.

Coleman evon BGU10016A put in new ignition light and still wont heat up, what next


Check to see if you are getting power to the ignitor... if not then the ignition control module is bad or there is another control that is keeping the control module from trying to light the furnace...
Check for 24v power going to the control module and also check that all of the saftey controls are closed and completing the safety circuit...are you getting any flashing LED'S on the control module?

Air conditioning runs all the time


I assume this is a manufactured home, this is probably a two transformer system, either your contactor is welded in the on positon or wyou have control wiring issues, (could be the thermostat)

Have to replace ignitor on coleman furnace every year


The voltage regulator on the control module is sending the wrong voltage to the ignitor or the ignitor is getting wet from condensation. That ignitor should last many years. Replace the control module.
