Faulty pilot lights

Does your pilot light keep going out? There could be two reasons why your pilot light keeps going out. One possibility is that your thermocouple is loose or faulty. If necessary, tighten the thermocouple. One, the pilot orifice may be blocked. Use a piece of wire to remove the obstruction. Remember to turn off the gas before you start. Three, your pilot's flame may not be lit by the setting. The flame adjustment can be done by turning a simple screw. To get the correct size flame, turn the screw. This will give you flames of 1.5 to 2 inches with no yellow. For more information, consult the owner's manual of your furnace.

No Heat Troubleshooting

You could also try these things if you don't feel like you are getting heat.

  • Verify that your thermostat is set to "heat".
  • Make sure you check the fuse or breaker powering your thermostat to make sure it isn't blown. Turn it on if it isn't on. Replace the fuse if it is dead.
  • Check that the furnace is powered on. You might find a switch. Flip it to the on position.
  • Restart the motor. You may have overloaded it. You should see a reset button. It should be pressed once. Try again after 30 minutes if nothing happens.
  • Make sure you check your gas valve and pilot light. If your pilot light has gone out, you can turn the gas valve to the on position. The gas valve should be in the ON position.

Broken Fans

Check that your fan is working properly. Turn off your heat. Next, switch to the "fan-only" or "auto" position. If fans don't switch on, it is possible that fans are not turning on. To check if the circuit breaker has tripped, If the circuit breaker is still not tripping, it will need to be replaced. Regular Heating Tune-Ups can help you spot problems like this before they become serious.

Defective Blowers

Your furnace door should be completely shut. The furnace won't work properly if it is open. First, turn off the furnace breaker to inspect the belt. The belt should be replaced if it is damaged, frayed, or cracked. For the details of the belt that you require, consult your furnace's owner manual. Then replace it. Be careful! Blower motors can get very hot! Blower motors can get very hot! A blower motor that is overloaded should be replaced.

Bad electrical connections

Check your breaker box if your furnace isn't turning on. You can check for a blown fuse or a trip breaker. You can either replace the blown fuse, or you can turn the tripped circuit breaker off and back on. If none of these methods work, you may need to call a technician.

Filter that is dirty or clogged

Replace your air filter if it is dirty or blocked. You can look at your furnace to determine what type of filter you should buy. You can even snap a photo of it with your smartphone. You can bring it to the store, and a worker will help you find the right filter. Many filters have arrows that indicate which direction the air must flow. Your furnace's ductwork should face the arrow.

Thermostat Malfunctions

Here are some tips to help you get your thermostat working again quickly. Turn off the power and take out the cover. Use a vacuum cleaner or a soft brush to clean it. You can check for signs of corrosion, then use an electronic contact cleaner to remove it. If there is a problem, replace the battery.

Air Flow Problems

Airflow problems are usually caused by something that stops the air from flowing. Check your furnace filter. It could be dirty, or it may have been installed incorrectly. It should be replaced in the right position. You can also check the vents. Check that they are all open. Your furnace can heat up if there are too many vents. If those fail, you can hit the reset button. Try again in 30 minutes if it doesn't work.
