Turn your fan from auto to on at thermostat, if fan doesnt come on.
Remove blower motor door to get to control panel-Turn poweroff !
Try to turn blower wheel to see if it will turn freely,

Remove thermostat wires from control board, put a jumper wire between
r and g.Put door back on and restore power, fan should run. If it does
than it is possible you have a burnt out speed on whatever cylcle heat/cool you are trying to use.

To troubleshoot this-turn power off and find where the blower wires go to
control board. exchange the wires from park to heat or cool terminals.
put cover back on and restore power.IT should work,if nothing happens then you probably have a problem with blower

How to make sure you Heat is working


A common problem with a furnance is the furnance will attempt to ignite, several times, you will notice that the house is not heating properly. You will hear the furnance come on and you will assume the heat is on, and the house will continue to be cool. You wiil check the furnance and you will hear it start up and the blower will come on, however a few seconds later after you have walked away the blower will shut down and there is no heat on at this time. You will again go check the furnance and after the furnance start and go through the cycle the furnance will shut down you will notice that the furnance has indeed shut down. This is the common problem of the flame sensor, you will have to remove the flame sensor, get a small piece of fine grade sand paper, and remove all the black colored carbon from the flame sensor until is is shinning bright, replace the flame sensor and attempt to start the furnance. You will notice that apatment or house have reach the set temperture, that the furnance has went through its cycle and the furnance will ignite and stay on continueously until the house obtain the preset temperture..

I have a Johnson aire ease ultra 90 gas furnance. I also have a outdoor wood furnance that has its own thermostat. On the original thermostat I turn the blower in the on position. I then set the outdoor...


I would first eliminate one furnace from the equation, the exterior wood furnace... turn its tstat down. Will the gas furnace then operate normally? Can you run the blower manually, as in summer mode? Make sure your filters are clean also... that can sometimes overload the blower.

To what terminals do the two wires coming from the a/c unit connect to on the furnance?i have r w g y c on the furnance board. its a carrier tech 2000 a/c and a rheem criterion 2 furnance


The 2 wires that come from the outside unit will connect to the Y(Cooling) and the C(Common) terminals on the board. It doesn't matter which wire goes to either one, they both work either way. Have a good one!

Goodman A18-8 electronic furnance and AC troubleshooting.


Check the unit for a high temperature limit switch, usually a round bimetal disc or a square plate that
would insert into the unit. If the switch is bad, it opens up and the fan will run no matter what. Complete the circuit with jumper wire, if fan shuts off
replace switch

Gas furnance quit working. it is a Rheem Criterion the ok led blinks 4 times any suggestions?


I think 4 blinks is the code open pressure switch, check inside your blower door to verify. The pressure switch is a round metal part with an orange hose going to it. If you pull the hose and **** gently, you should hear a clicking inside the pressure switch. If not, verify theres no blockage or holes in the tubing. Another cause for this switch not closing is a blocked vent pipe, maybe snow or high winds.

Blower not working


check your thermostat first to see if it may need batteries (some of the newer types of thermostats requir batteries to work properly, These are the digital types) If there isn't any problems there then check the electrical panel to see if there is a breaker for the furnance and if it has been tripped. If not, go to the furnance closet and check to see if the unit is plugged into the electrical service for the furnance, if it is plugged in I would suggest checking to insure you have the correct voltage comintg into the system. If so and you do have correct voltage coming into the furnance then you have a bad blower motor or blower motor capacitor. The capacitor can be checked with a meter that checks capacitors I would have this checked first and then the motor However if you have to replace the motor at that time I would replace the capacitor. Good Luck hope this helps

My Rheem central A/C blower motor cycles on & off


Depending on age of Rheem they have a time delay relay. May be causing the problem. The time delay operates the fan. Try turning fan to continuous and see if it stays on.
