There is a switch, activated when you open the service panel, that kills most power to the unit, including the DI Blower motor. Your furnace should also be equipped with an exterior kill switch, or there's always the good old breaker box. Good Luck!

first check your high limit switch find the white wire coming from your blower moter and unplug it hold down your door switch to see if your furnace will shut off if not replace it and your blower will run for ten to 20 min or until your heater has cooled down.

My furnace heats up and then shuts down not kicking on blower


Your furnace is shutting off on the high limit switch because of this. You are having a problem with the blower motor. You need to check for power from the wires on the board that feeds the motor. If you have voltage, and your run capacitor is good, you have a faulty blower motor. If its a fan relay, the fan would start and run all of the time. Check power to motor right after furnace shuts the burners off.

Hello, it sounds like your Furnace might be shutting off due to your high limit switch.A limit switch will open when the furnace overheats due to low airflow, . check air filter, clean blower wheel, and check to make sure the blower wheel is running at proper speed and not dragging sometimes cause by a weak capacitor. Anything that restricts airflow will cause a limit switch to open.

Hello, sounds like the limit switch is opening on the furnace.Usually when a furnace goes off on its high limit is becuase the airflow is being restricted making the furnace overheat. a limit switch is there to protect the furnaace from overheating, most cuases are either dirt or the blower motor not running up to speed, anything that cuts down on the airflow will cause the high limt switch to open.

Tappan furnace blower will not shut off and furnace does not heat and red light is blinking one flash constantly.


Usually when the furnace blower motor runs all the time
The limit switch or rollout switch is usually open or bad.
The furnace board is seeing that one of those switches is open, so it brings the blower on to try to get the heat out of the combustion chamber area, so the switch will close. But if the switch is bad and won’t close, the furnace board will keep the blower running continuously.

Carrier Furnace infinity 96.model 58MVP060-F-18114. Furnace heats


Sounds like it could be your fan limit switch. Part costs about 20 bucks and is fairly simple to replace. This limit switch is a safety that prevents your furnace from over heating. Usually when your t/s is satisfied the blower runs for a little longer after the burners have stopped, and the reason for that is the limit switch. The blower is supposed to cool this limit switch to a certain temp. and once it reaches this temp it shuts the blower off. Yours is stuck:(

Coleman furnace -- fan runs, ingniter won't light,


Hi,
The chances are that the furnace was running when the power went out. This will cause the high limit switch to cutout and needs to be manually reset.
You will find that switch in the blower compartment near the blower. Usually somewher near the highest point of the cabinet.
Push the little red button firmly till it clicks.
When the power goes out while the furnace is running the heat builds up because the blower shuts down immediately and causes this limit switch to cut out.
If you have a electric tester you can also follow the low voltage circuit till you find the open switch. Ther is usually a wiring schematic on the door cover of most furnaces.

I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!!

Carrier 58 Series Furnace Blower Motor Won't Shut Off


Yes. If the high limit is tripped, the furnace will bring on the fan continuously until the limit resets. Often, they will not reset if tripped repeatedly. If the furnace is too large for your application, you probably are not able to move enough air to keep the heat exchanger cool enough.

Blower fan wont shut off


Try cycling the switch at the furnace to reset the blower board. If this doesn't work remove the green wire from the blower board(computer board) to eliminate a shorted t-stat or shorted wire between the furance and t-stat. If blower remains on, then blower board is shorted. I've seen all these problems.

Main limit switch


I am providing some information, but I encourage you to have a furnace technician look at your furnace. The reason is; the limit switch trips when there is a problem that may present a fire or combustion hazard. I've seen these switches go bad, but not very often. Usually they are tripping because the plenum is sooted up and excessive heat builds in the combustion chamber. This is common in older furnaces that have pilot flames- the flame runs all year and soot deposits in the plenum, plugging the air flow through the combustion chamber after years of use.

The limit switch is a safety control switch located on the furnace just below the plenum. If the plenum gets too hot, the limit switch shuts off the burner. It also shuts off the blower when the temperature drops to a certain level after the burner has shut off. If the blower runs continuously, either the blower control on the thermostat has been set to the ON position or the limit control switch needs adjustment. Check the thermostat first. If the blower control has been set to ON, change it to AUTO; if the blower control is already on AUTO, the limit switch needs adjusting.

To adjust the switch, remove the control's cover. Under it is a toothed dial with one side marked LIMIT; don't touch this side. The other side of the control is marked FAN. There are two pointers on the fan side; the blower goes on at the upper pointer setting and turns off at the lower pointer setting. The pointers should be set about 25 degrees apart. Set the upper pointer at about 115 degrees Fahrenheit and the lower one at about 90 degrees Fahrenheit.
