Why Won’t My Furnace Kick On?
There are a number of common issues that cause a furnace to malfunction. While we don’t recommend trying to fix these things yourself, it can be helpful to have an idea of what’s going on before you call in a heating professional.
Aire Serv of Bel Air most frequently handles furnace repair related to these issues:
- There’s no power running to the furnace. This may be caused by loose wiring, a tripped breaker, or a switch in the “off” position. It could also be more complicated, such as problems with the control board, thermostat, transformer, blower motor, or run capacitor. We can determine the cause with a diagnostic test.
- The motor is failing. A failing motor will often squeak and squeal. This one needs to be taken care of right away to prevent a total system breakdown.
- The blower fan doesn’t turn on once the burners are lit. Usually, this requires replacement of the run capacitor. However, sometimes it’s an issue with the motor, which may involve further investigation and diagnosis from our heating professionals.
- The burner won’t ignite. If you have a furnace with a spark ignition, you may hear the rapid clicking sounds of the burner trying to ignite. Common causes include a faulty control board, a blocked flue, or an improper control limit, and can be fixed by repairing or replacing the parts.
- The burner won’t stay lit or won’t light at all. It the burner catches but stay lit, it’s likely a dirty flame sensor or a clogged condensate drain and simply needs a good cleaning and some adjustments. If it won’t light at all, the gas supply may be cut off and our technicians should be able to safely restore it.
- The air filter is clogged. You’ll usually notice this issue when the blower motor won’t stop running. A clogged air filter can restrict airflow, which can in turn damage the limit switch that senses the internal furnace temperature. We can change the air filter, fix or replace any damaged components, and show you how and how often to switch out the filter to avoid future problems.
