Have HVAC Questions? Ask an HVAC Expert for Answers
Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset I am just one of the techs on here and I try to get to as many customers as I can and I just picked up your question now. Please give me time to respond sometimes I get your replies late so there may be a delay in my response.
Is the ignitor coming on and glowing?
Can you see if there is power to the ignitor and are there any error codes on the board flashing?
The ignitor may be broken or bad can you check it visually or with an ohm meter, that is the most common issue that would cause that problem.
We are on the honor system for our time, all I ask is please rate my service using the STAR RATING LINK on your page before you leave. If you are not happy with the service please let me know before leaving a negative rating. This is the only way I am paid or credited through the site for my time. This will also allow you to get directly back to me for FREE follow up questions and tips are greatly appreciated! Thanks
When you turn it off the main blower keeps running?
Then you may have a bad board on the unit the relay for the blower may be stuck on the board itself. You may have to leave it powered off until you can replace the control board on it that can happen on that unit as well.
You can not if the relay is stuck, check all the thermal rollouts around the burner are just in case one has tripped open. Some have a push reset button on them maybe one of them has tripped.
They are just above the burners on each side 2 small round discs with reset buttons. You may not be able to get it working tonight though with the issue you are having if the board is bad, just to let you know.
They can cause the blower to run all the time if one is tripped open yes.
They are between the two wires going to each of them
yes they just push down if tripped normally they would click if tripped.
yes now try it and it should work!
If you do not need anything else all I ask is please use the STAR rating system before leaving thanks
Note I am not paid or credited anything until a good rating is given, I believe your issue has been solved so I please ask you to rate my service so I can be credited for my time. thanks
