Question about Coleman Propane Forced Air Heater w/Electronic Ignition (50,000-80,000 BTU)

Open Question

I have a coleman furnace model # 7970C856 in a mobile home...when the blower goes to kick on it makes a loud ticking noise several times and sometimes it won't kick on and the pilot goes out...the ticking comes from a 3" round silver cover...this part is the damper assembly i found out from coleman...but its $130 and want to make sure this is the problem. Thanks!

Rmove the two screws holding the blower in place and slide it out. With the power off, rotate the wheel and inspect for debris or an impingement. If everything turns easy, you have a bad motor or start capacitor. If you have rubbing, adjust the wheel. If the motor will not turn, replace it.

Is this furnace standing pilot or electronic ignition. If standing pilot i would check furnace filter then the thermastat. To test themostat first turn power off to furnace. Take thermostat off wall and take wires labled R & W and connect them together. If you have electronic ignition I would start with cleaning the flame sensor with steel wool or wire brush.If you have and more questions i will be glad to help.

SOURCE: Furnace not cycling properly.

you might want to check the filter, if the filter is restricting the airflow the furnace will over heat and it will shut down. if you turn it off and on it will reset it and it will try again. Pull the filter out half way and try that, if it runs fine then clean the filter or get a less restrictive one.

SOURCE: heater sometimes ignites and goes out. it repeats

The flame sensor rod should be cleaned, if that doesn't fix it check the combustion air switch. There should be an error code, look for a blinking light and code chart under the filter door.

Make sure all vents are open and filters are clean. Likely an air flow issue but possibly, though unlikely, both switches are bad.

Loud blower on my Coleman Furnace


Usually a noisy blower motor is a bad bearing. The motors now have oil impregnated bearings and you can't oil them, you have to replace them.

My furnance is acting up you turn it on it clicks on then lights the flame gets big then seconds later the flames go out and the blower kicks on what could be the problem ive had several people look at it...


If the fan takes too long to come on, the high temp limit may be opening. Could be a defective limit, hard to say without more info. Another possibility is a mis-adjusted heat anticipator. A normal setting would be around .45 amp. The heat anticipator is inside the cover of the thermostat (older, analog style). Good luck.

Colman Furnace keeps kicking on & off


Denise, my heater not a coleman (a monitor heater (oil) kept turning off when the temp got really cold. I would advise you to ask if you can do this, I addded an additive to my drum outside which holds the fuel. Because the deisel thickens up when it gets cold, which makes the heater have a harder time distributing the fuel to the heater. So far the heater has not kicked off.
