- Simply slide out the old air filter and replace it with the new one part.
- Make sure that the new filter is inserted in the right direction.
- Replace the panel or door to your ComfortMaker furnace.
What’s Wrong With Your ComfortMaker Furnace?
Common Furnace Problems and Troubleshooting
If you’re ever going to open your furnace to search out for or fix any problem, please remember to completely turn it off before doing so.
|Is your furnace...||The problem might be your...||What's wrong?||How you can fix it:|
|Not heating?||Fuse or Circuit Breaker||Either the power switch has blown, or the electrical system associated with your furnace has shorted.||Either replace the blown switch or reset the circuit breaker associated with your furnace.|
|Igniter||The furnace’s igniter is either cracked or defective.||If the igniter is cracked, replace it. If it isn’t, test with a multimeter for continuity.|
|Cycling irregularly?||Thermostat||The furnace’s thermostat is adjusting incorrectly.||Use your thermostat’s adjustable calibration scale to adjust the heat anticipator. If this doesn’t work or you don’t have a scale, replace the thermostat.|
|Not blowing hot air?||Blower Motor||Either the blower motor in your furnace has burned out, or the connecting belt has snapped.||If the blower motor is receiving power but isn’t running, the motor has failed. If it does run, then the connecting belt has broken. Replace either the motor or belt depending on the outcome.|
|Blowing too much air?||Control Board||The relay responsible for regulating the amount of voltage that your blower motor receives has failed, resulting in the continual sending of voltage to the motor.||Replace the control board.|
|Thermostat||The contact that controls the blower motor on your thermostat could be stuck closed.||Use a multimeter to check for continuity. If it appears that the thermostat is the issue, replace it.|
|Starting and then stopping shortly after?||Flame Sensor||If the flame sensor is either defective or dirty, it will not be able to detect whether or not a flame is present.||If dirty, use a fine abrasive pad to clean the sensor. If faulty, replace the flame sensor.|

Although you might be able to figure out what the problem is, sometimes it’s safer and less expensive to bring in a professional than attempting a fix on your own.
