Common Furnace Electrical Problems

Common Furnace Electrical Problems

Common Furnace Electrical ProblemsSoon the coldest winter days will arrive, making it very important that your furnace is fully prepared to keep your family warm. At the first indication of a furnace problem, it's best to call in a reputable HVAC professional who can accurately diagnose the issue and get right to work on fixing it. Here's a look at seven common causes of furnace electrical issues.

Faulty Blower Motor

A bad blower motor may draw too much power and cause a fuse to blow. Usually, faulty blower motors are replaced rather than repaired.

Clogged Filter

Generally, furnace filters need to be changed at some point between three and twelve months. Thin filters tend to need replacement more often than thick ones. When a furnace filter becomes completely clogged, it could result in a fuse burning out, which may pose a fire hazard.

Failing Starting Capacitor

Your furnace may have recurring electrical problems if its starting capacitor is faulty. Luckily, this is an issue that shouldn't put much of a dent in your wallet to resolve.

Came into Contact with Water

If water is leaking in the vicinity of the furnace, then there's a risk that a short will occur.

Loose Wiring

Sometimes, a vibrating furnace will knock loose an internal wire. In some cases, it can be challenging to identify the problem wire, but once it's located it is usually easy to fix.

Wrong Type of Fuse

If for some reason a fuse was installed that is too small for your heating system's capacity, then you'll want to replace it with one of the appropriate size.

Dirty Fuse

Old, dirty fuses are liable to prevent proper connections from occurring. As part of regular HVAC maintenance, the technician will ensure that your unit is fitted with the proper sizes of clean fuses.
