Customer Question
I have an Amana...

I have an Amana furnace 70K btu model # GSI070B30B. It suddenly stopped operating yesterday morning after running one heating cycle to warm the house.

Contractor's Assistant: Did you double-check the thermostat's settings? And what about the filters?

I replaced the thermostat with one that I knew was functional - no success. The filter is a bit dirty.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I installed a Bryant 80K upflow in my own home a few years back. The Amana is at my rental. So, yes.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Circuit breaker did not trip. Otherwise, I didn't test power to the unit yet.

Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your

issue. First I’ll need some more info so I have a more complete picture of your situation.

Does the draft/exhaust fan run? do you have power to the unit?

Nothing runs. As I noted above, I did not check power to the unit but have no reason to believe the power supply was interrupted.How to I check power to the unit?
HVAC Technician: Rick, HVAC Supervisor replied 1 month ago

You need a multi-meter and probe the incoming electrical feed.

Assuming I have power, what is the next step?
HVAC Technician: Rick, HVAC Supervisor replied 1 month ago

I'm not doing hypotheticals. You need to be onsite to trouble shoot this.

What I am looking for are step-by-step instructions to diagnose the problem. Ideally, your service would have a basic diagram of the electrical system (I understand that manufacturers have differences but, the units are basically the same).Just received your message that you are not doing 'hypotheticals'. If I go to the site, later this morning is there an additional charge to resume this conversation?
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Also, would a volt meter suffice?
HVAC Technician: Rick, HVAC Supervisor replied 1 month ago

No these units are not basically the same when it comes to trouble shooting. No additional charge to pick this up later. This is an old unit with next to no specs available so I'd need a clear picture of the wiring diagram if basic first steps don't work. It is usually pasted to the inside of one of the access panels. A voltmeter is OK if it can read both 120 and 24 volts AC.
