Gas Furnace Repair

There can be plenty of reasons responsible for the furnace to not operate properly. Some of the issues can be fixed easily while some others might be hard to gauge. In the event of the furnace not working, no gas supply motor overloading and lighting out of pilot are some of the identifiable causes of the problem. The dirty filter and burner, loose blower belt, an unbalanced system, the clogging of the blowers and the low thermostat settings lead to the reduced heat production within the chambers of the furnace. The furnace can also get incredibly noisy due to the loose blower belts and panels, dirty burner and inadequate lubrication of the motoring parts. Besides, the low setting of the pilot flame, erroneous electric pilot and the faulty thermocouple prevents the pilot from staying lit for prolonged periods. The probable solutions to some of the problems are listed below.

For the furnaces to operate

  • The blown fuses should be identified specially along the circuit breakers and the entrance panels
  • The gas valves should be completely open
  • The pilot is relighted
  • The power switch is turned on and the reset button is pressed
