Check all your manual reset limits. There are two wires that go to a small disk about the size of a penny. In between those wires is a small button. Press the button firmly. You will have between 2 to 5 of these. There is also a limit switch located on the back wall of the unit that enters in the heat exchanger but it is not resetable that could be bad. You will need to check all of these. They can be jumped temporarily by removing the wires and adding a small wire.

    Sorry, I had my mind on a gas unit and not on the electric! My fault! Ok, do you have any fuses on this unit? Do you have any breakers just on the heat side of the air handler? If you answered yes, then check to make sure they aren't blown or tripped. If you answered no, then check to make sure the tstat is calling for it to come on. If it isn't replace the stat, if it is then check the sequencer. The sequencer will cause this to happen. Also, you didn't state that the A/C comes on. You might want to varify that it is coming on too. Again, accept my apology on the one track mind! There have been lots of gas furnace questions the last couple of days!

Where is the filter on a rheem corsair furnace?


I'm not familiar with the Rheem Corsair gas furnace, but the filter will be somewhere, filtering the return air. Is the furnace installed as an upflow, down flow or horizontal? Locate the blower door, open it up then work your way back on the duct that is returning air to the blower. Sometimes homes will have a filter return grill in a hallway ceiling. The grill has a couple nuts that can be removed, the grill swings down and houses the filter.

Heater blower won't start and we get o heat! What is going on with this Rheem REAA-080c


Earl, is this a furnace heater for your house? And are you referring to the blower that distributes the heat throughout the house? And does this unit have a flame exhaust blower? This last blower is a small blower in the unit itself, if it has one you usually can spot it.

20 year old Rheem 90 plus 120k btu furnace blower runs contantly. Furnace and AC work fine (start and stop according to thermostat setting). What is problem? How fix?


Check to see if your unit has a heat sequencer. This is usually the problem with most furnaces. If it is bad, it will make the fan blower run all of the time. If you are not a electrican, you may want to get a electricin to look at it.

RHEEM OIL FURNACE MODEL ROBD 067 LBEA BLOWER


You will likely need to install an isolation relay in the W circuit from the thermostat. Some thermostats rob a small current through the W circuit to power the thermostat. This small current can be enough to start the fan circuit timer. You can test this by disconnecting W at the furnace and allowing the timer to shut down. If the fan shuts off with the W disconnected you can install a simple relay.

The relay coil will be connected to Common on one side and the W from the thermostat to the other. Then you will run a wire from R on the furnace to the relay and from the N.O. Contacts to the W terminal on the furnace. This will kill that signal that is starting the timer and the W can steal it's power through the coil back to common.

Rheem RHQA Heater:Blower works but no heat.


Is there a setting on the thermostat for Auto or Fan? If so, make sure it is in the Auto setting. You will have a contactor that turns on the elements and a relay for the fan. Follow the wiring diagram to see which relay energizes the fan then unplug it to see if the fan stops.

1970's Rheem electric furnace


no the older rheems had a sequencer for the heat that turned on the blower at the same time that the heat strios are energized. so the first thing that you need to do is figure out the sequencer that is keeping the fan running and get it replaced.

Furnace filter is black and sooty wall seem to be sooty


   By sealed unit you mean that the burner air comes from outside of the house?      You have checked the heat exchanger for cracks by removing the burners and looking with a mirror and flashlight, correct, or had a service tech so?
The furnace burners have enough air and are burning clean (blue) with just a tip of orange at the end? You bought the house new and the fireplace has never been used?  If it has been used to clean smoke for the house for whatwever reason I woudl start by havign the ducts cleaned.   Another possibility I have seen is insolation inside of ductwork breaking down.
