Thanks to everyone who replied.
Evacuation blower? That would be an inducer motor assembly.
Thanks for providing proper name.
Igniters click? Spark ignition may click. An igniter (glow coil) just
glows. Pilots burn.
I do not have a constantly burning pilot, maybe I'm hearing contact
within a switch causing the clicking sound.
Air handler blower? So what exactly do you have? An air handler or a
gas furnace? I havent seen an evacuation blower in an air handler.
The fan which pushes both heated & cooled air through the ducting i
housed within the same horizontal case as the furnace. One end i
connected to the return filter box. Other end is connected t
evaporator coils and then to ducting for ceiling vents.
Tell me this and Im being serious as a heart attack.
Why on this freakin earth would you pay a technician to replace parts
(or his labor) until he guesses the right one?
We're busy at work. Leaving home at 0500 and returning home at 193
hrs. That leaves only Saturday or Sunday to have a Tech at the house
which they charge dearly for after hour support. Unfortunetly, I can'
take leave for a couple of weeks, other than Federal Holiday's. So, m
wife would be there during business hours but wouldn't enter the garag
with him. I wouldn't have a clue as to his troubleshooting steps.
The first summer after buying our home, the fan went out. Comp came on
then shut off because the fan wasn't working. Called Lennox dealer wh
installed system, told it would be 2 days wait, TX coast was 95
humidity and temp was over 96. I crawled in the attic, opened up th
case, studied the wiring, bypassed the capacitor and hard wired th
fan, flipped pwr on, and fan didn't work, thus eliminating capacitor a
problem. Removed fan, took to dealer, paid $15 handling fee (was unde
warranty) and they gave me a new fan, which I then installed an
haven't had a problem with it since.
Two summers ago, Comp wouldn't work, but inside fan would work in O
position. I open the side panel, decided to remove the relay contac
assembly (blk plastic with numerous contacts), took it to a loca
electrical supply warehouse, matched it, paid approximately $6
installed it, system worked.
Last summer, Comp wouldn't work properly, removed a time delay assembl
(mounted near relay contacts), took it electrical warehouse, pai
approximately $20, installed it, and the system worked again. I can'
remember what I set the time delay at, but it was in seconds.
Every spring I house out my comp coils, and then have the dealer visi
to connect gauges and inspect/service system.
I repair fighter aircraft electrical systems for Uncle Sam. I'm scare
off household electrical measurements because I only deal with 22 gaug
wires carring DC. But, principals of using a multimeter to chec
resistance, amps, and volts are very similur.
Thanks for the advise, I'll attempt to take leave early one afternoo
and schedule an appointment with a Tech
