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

1 Answer

My Coleman Evcon propane forced air furnace is less than 5 years old. When I remove the upper cover I see a green light blinking 3 times which is some switch not closing which is a different option than the switch malfunctioning. I flip what looks like a regular light switch and the light turns solid green, I hear the unit start up and then shut down again and the light is blinking again.

Combustion Air Switch Failed to Close


I have this furnace in two of my mobile homes. In both I had to take off the inducer motor (i think that's what it's called)..it has the clear air tube attached to it. Remove the 4 screws or top two if you have small fingers and give the wheel inside at the bottom a push. These tend to stick over years of use and in both cases once freed the furnace came on. I too had 3 flashes in both cases.

Have a Evcon Coleman Furnace shows three green blinking lights but will not ignight what could be wrong


I have had the same problem with mine for the last 2 years. Remove the motor on the side of the furnace(usually held on by 3 screws) and turn the fan blades inside by hand. after sitting all summer it seems to get stuck. If it moves freely, replace the motor and try to start it again. This fixed mine the last 2 years! Hope this helped.

I have a coleman evcon furnace that wont work. The electrical box green light is not on at all so it cannot pinpoint what the error is. Any thoughts?


Hi, I would just make sure you have power to the furnace. Check breakers or look for the power switch on the electrical box. Also, some mobile homes have a wall switch that cuts power to the furnace.

Green light stays on, red light blinks along with a buzzing noise


colman uses the furnace to power the attic vent fan . Cheaper that way I guess. It just supplies your attic fan with power so it will vent thus keeping your home a little cooler in the summer.
not a big deal. you can shut the alarm with a switch ot cut power to the alarm.

Wiring from thermostat to furnace


Typically you normally will have five wires controlling your furnace and airconditioning. R Y W G C. If you get some thermostat wire. Connect them like this---- red wire will go to R(this is your 24V to thermostat)----yellow wire will go Y(Y is your cooling)----white wire will go W(W is for heating)---green wire to G(green is your fan)---black can go to C(this is your common to supply 24Vto thermostat)

Furnace shuts off


Defective combustion air switch. The 3 blinks are an error code. You didn't say, but I'm guessing you have a Coleman Evcon. They had alot of defective Combustion air switches. Your specialists were not that.
