Furnace Troubleshooting 

If your furnace doesn’t turn on, we’ve got you covered. These tips may help you understand what kind of furnace repair you may need. 

No Power  

Several things could cause a furnace to not respond to a temperature change. The breaker on your furnace’s circuit may have been tripped, or you may have turned off the furnace switch. 

If your furnace still does not turn on after you’ve checked these two things, call in a technician who will run a diagnostic test. They can determine whether it is the transformer, thermostat, control board, or another issue and develop a solution. 

Failing Motor 

A squeaky motor could indicate that it is going to fail. You’ll need to contact a technician to save the furnace from completely breaking down if you hear the motor squealing.

Clogged Filter 

When the thermostat is turned “on,” the blower motor will stay on continuously, even when there is no new heat to circulate. This constant blowing can cause your air filter to clog and restrict airflow. 

As a result, the limit switch, which senses the furnace’s internal temperature, can be damaged. The limit switch will need replacing, and the air filter will need changing. A technician from General Air Conditioning and Plumbing can assist you with this type of furnace repair.   

Main Burner Problems 

A dirty flame sensor is the most common cause of a burner that won’t stay lit. If the burner isn’t staying lit at all, the supply of gas could be shut off. For this repair, a technician will clean these furnace parts and make a few additional adjustments. 

No Ignition 

When a furnace is working properly, you’ll hear the clicking sound when the burner is trying to ignite. If it cannot ignite, there may be a problem with the control board or a blocked flue. This problem may require a repair or replacement of these parts.  

Run Capacitor or Motor Problems 

Either of these issues will prevent the blower from turning on after the burners ignite. The capacitor is typically a simple fix, but any motor issues may require additional attention.
