Symptoms of a Furnace Failure

There are so many ways for a furnace to break down. Over the years, we’ve seen just about everything that can go wrong. Here’s what to look out for when your furnace is malfunctioning:

  • Refuses to start up.
  • After you turn it on and while it’s running, you hear strange noises.
  • The blower is running continually.
  • The main burner won’t stay lit for longer than three seconds.
  • The pilot light is out.
  • Even after the burners are lit, the blower never turns on.

We are happy to help with all of these issues and more - read below for DIY solutions to some of these problems.

Four Common Furnace Issues

Not every furnace problem warrants a visit from a technician. Try these helpful tips to see if you can find the root of your furnace’s malfunction — it may be a simple fix. Of course, if you’re not able to resolve the situation, an Aire Serv of Oconomowoc tech is only a phone call away!

Main Burner Problems

This issue is mostly caused by dirty flame sensors or congested condensate drains. And if the burners won’t light at all, the gas supply could be cut off. The solutions to these problems are simple: clean a few key components and make some adjustments. If you’re unsure which part is the root of the problem, reach out to us.

No Power

When raising the temperature on your thermostat, if the fan doesn’t respond, one of several things may have happened: a breaker has tripped, the wiring is loose, or the switch is turned off.

Failing Motor

Loud noises from your system are indications that it might be about to die. This situation is urgent and a tech should be called right away.

No Ignition

We’re all familiar with the rapid clicking sounds indicating that the burner is trying to ignite. If it can’t ignite, there may be a blocked duct, improper limit control, or malfunctioning control board.

We hope these hints have been helpful. However, we understand furnaces, just like most HVAC equipment, are complicated. We are happy to walk you through the solutions to the above-mentioned problems and more. Our expert technicians will also ensure you know how to properly maintain your system once it is repaired.

Frequently Asked Questions About Furnace Repair

What are signs that your furnace is going out?

One of the most noticeable indicators of a failing furnace is a strange noise it makes during operation. If you hear rattling, grinding, or banging coming from your furnace, it's important to have it checked out by a professional. Other signs of a potential issue include inconsistent heating, a spike in heating bills, and frequent system breakdowns. If you notice any of these signs, it's best to schedule a furnace repair service to identify and fix the underlying problem.

How do I know when my furnace filter needs to be changed?

A furnace filter is an important component of your heating system. Its job is to capture dust, pet hair, and other airborne particles before they can circulate through your home. Over time, the filter can become clogged, making it harder for the furnace to push air through it. Signs that your filter needs to be changed include decreased airflow, an increase in dust on surfaces and in the air, and strange noises coming from your furnace. Be sure to check your filter monthly and replace it every 1-3 months.

Does changing air filter improve performance in the furnace?

Yes, changing your air filter can significantly improve the performance of your furnace. As mentioned, a clogged filter can make it harder for your furnace to push air through, reducing its efficiency and increasing the likelihood of system damage. Changing your filter regularly will ensure that the air can flow freely through your system, keeping it running smoothly and efficiently. This, in turn, could save you money on your heating bill and prolong the lifespan of your furnace.
