SOURCE: no air flow from duct on forced air unit

If there is no air coming through all of ducts, there are several things to consider. If you turn your thermostat to fan on, does air come out? If so you may have a switching|thermostat problem. May need to change out, not really hard you just have to turn off electric mark wires as you remove and turn back on. If nothing changed, make sure the circuit breaker has tripped, sometimes its hard to tell so flip it all the way off then back on. Now try to turn on again. If it comes on you need to find out why it's tripping the breaker, merely resetting it can pose a danger for the future. Professionally servicing the unit is important to the longevity of the unit. Now if you find out that unit is coming on but no air is coming out, it could well be that a duct has blown free and is spilling into attic or crawl space. Sometimes the unit forms an ice block in the evaporative area of the unit. In this case it would need quite some time off to thaw. Also the fan motor may be burned out. In that case you would hear part of the unit working with no output. These are a few of the most common problems with this condition.Most of which needs to be addressed by a Tech

Reverse or open phase. Check all 3 phases are present and correct. If correct voltage appears at all three phases, swap any two to cure the fault. Thanks. Helpful?

Sounds like your ignition module is not detecting the flame.

F1 08 f2 08 f3 08 f4 08 error codes vulcan comfort control what does it mean


What sort of machine is it? Refrigerated, Ducted, Gas? To do a full reset correctly, you must switch off at the main isolator next to the unit or at the meter box and leave it off for at least 15 minutes. A quick on / off does not reset it properly. If the unit is a refrigerated split system , and the outdoor is running but the machine is not blowing cold outside and hot inside (On heating mode) It could be due to a gas leak / shortage.

When I turn it on to the heat cycle the fan does not run, I have swapped the control board with another unit that was working and still get the same result the unit runs on all other cycles.


This is not true if your system is a heat pump. When the thermostat calls for heat, and the burner ignites the gas, a thermal sensor switch senses when the hot box has heated and then the sensor turns the fan on, this is so no cold air is blown into the ducts and living space. Also, another sensor senses the heat box if it gets too hot, cuts out the burner, if this sensor is not working then the burner will never light. Two sensors that may be keeping the heat from working among other possible causes, one step at a time in trouble shooting. Does the burner turn on at all?

This is a down flow unit. There is no pressure valve on this unit. Here is all the parts on this unit.
1. Manual - reset, when used.
2. Blower and blower motor
3. Relief box also known as a exhaust flue.
4. Gas valve control knob or electric switch, ON/OFF
5. Gas Valve
6. Gas burner
7. Ratting plate
8. Blower door safety switch
9. Blocked vent safeguard tube and switch
10. Gas Manifold
11. Manual limit switch (2)
12.Hot surface ignitor
13. Flame sensor
14. Inducer blower motor
15. Control board with relays and transformer.
That is all the parts. The first thing the heater gets a call from the thermostat to the control board marked W. The board sends 24v to the inducer fan relay which makes and causes the inducer fan to come on now there is a small tube that runs from the inducer fan box to a switch when the switch makes it sends power to the board which proves you have cleared the exhaust flue then the flat surface ignitor starts to glow and then gas valve opens and fires. now if this tube is stopped up the heater will not fire and will lock the unit out. Also if the flue is stopped up with trash it will do the same thing. If you are not familiar with gas heating units you should call a service company out and check out the system there is a lot of things that need to be checked out every heating season as to keep you and your family safe.

Maytag DG410 gas dryer-no flame, no heat. I replaced the ignitor - that apparently isn't the problem. Other ideas?


Motor runs, but main burner will not ignite
1.heat switch set wrong---correct switch setting
2.defective timer or timer circuit---check timer wiring--replace timer motor or switch as needed
3.defective centrifugal switch in motor---clean switch or replace as needed
4.gas supply valve closed----open gas valve
5.inoperative solenoid coil---test coil for open circuit & the voltage to it
???
Pilot burner goes out
1.insufficient gas supply---- low gas pressure or clogged pilot filter or partially closed gas valve
2.carbon deposit on thermocouple tube---clean tube & check pilot burner for proper combustion
3.improperly adjusted pilot flame--adjust pilot flame until faint yellow tip begins to appear
4.faulty ignition or reset valve or thermocouple---replace

Clothes not drying, but dryer runs & heats
1.defective operating thermostat---test thermostat, replace if defective
2.fan or it's pulley loose on shaft---tighten set screw
3.incorrect heat or timer settings---reset timer
4.clothes to wet when placed in dryer----wring out or extract water from clothes before placing in dryer
5.clogged lint screen or duct (little air motion)---clean out lint screen & duct

Just been thru a similar problem with my Climate Technologies Vulcan High Efficiency Ducted Gas heater which in this case is installed under the house. This heater is about 7 years old and I have previously (2 years back) refurbished the controller by replacing the main power supply electrolytic filter capacitors.

I also had a communication problem with the Touch pad Thermostat which in the end required replacing the entire touch pad as one of it's voltage regulators had gone intermittent (Touch pads are available on E-Bay). To operate the heater while the touch pad was out of commission I installed a manual switch between the heat contacts on the heater controller. Closing the switch causes the heater to permanently run if it has no thermostat. Once communication with the touch panel was restored we were able to try and find the intermittent heater fault.

Again I have been getting Fault Code 08 "Gas Interruption" however the heater was lighting OK and then going out after about a minute or so. In the end I found 2 distinct heater faults.

Fault 1 was the flame sensor where the weld between the wire and flame probe rod had broken but it was still touching. This meant it was sensing Flame OK and then later would go open with expansion as the temperature rose. I fixed this by replacing the Flame Probe with a new one sourced from Reece HVAC.

At this point I celebrated thinking it was fixed!

Fault 2 after the flame sensor issue was cleared the fault still persisted but slightly less often.
The heater was cycling 3 times to get going and then locking out, requiring a reset from the touch thermostat or heater controller board. Sometimes the heater would achieve a onging burn for a long period, and other times just locking out after 3 tries.

Careful observation of the flame, through the observation holes after it lit, showed correct flame sensing but as soon as the nominal 65C duct temperature was reached the combustion fan (modulates) throttles back too far and the flame goes out, the flame sensor switches off and gas valve is then closed. The pressure differential across the burner manafold controls the Gas flow rate so if the combustion fan goes too slow the flame goes out due to lack of gas.

On the control board there is a potentiometer marked "MIN GAS RATE" this needs to be tweaked clockwise until the burner remains lit when the nominal 60-65C duct temperature is reached. Don't turn it up too far or the heater may not throttle back enough and end up going out on overheat.

Once a stable flame is achieved when throttled, try the heater in the economy mode which uses a lower recirculating fan speed and check the flame still remains lit. My problem was most obvious in the Econ mode.

Hope this helps someone else - It took me over a year to solve this one. NeilP

hi,
The heating coil itself have some problem that's why the circuit breaker clicks off by sensing over current drop. Check the heating coil and replace it.

Ducted heating unit blows cold air and fan is always on..


that s correct the control is done by the thermostat stop the heating up to your set point and restart if the medium temp is under the set point
if this sequence fail means
- no power to the control element or is defective
thanks

The control panel gets its power from the central heating unit's power point. Try turning the power off outside at the powerpoint next to the ducted heating unit and try turning it on again after a few seconds, see if it resets
