first time startup on Bryant furnace - furnace calls for heat and will not stop
 
first time startup on Bryant furnace - furnace calls for heat and will not stop

Basically, I just got a Bryant heater installed and the contracter dissappeared after he got paid.

I turned this furnance on and it blinked code 12 for a while and then called for heat. It seems to be stuck in the heat cycle blowing heat out the air filter intake side. I am guessing the fan is blowing the wrong way.

I tryed to talk to the furance with 2 different thermostats I got at Home Depot. Neither will stop the Bryant furance from blowing heat out thee intake.

I was going to call Bryant but I have no receipt for the furnace since I got it from the contractor who installed it!

Looking for help in trying to figure out how to communicate with it with my digital thermostat. All of the wiring for the thermostat seems fine and correct. the batteries were tested good on the thermostat :huh:

what is your model ? Usually code 12 means power interruption .. not sure what model you have .. you have to find out what that code means .. if it means power interruption, check the power. or it may be something else ...

Isn't 12, powered up with call for heat.

Probably have a shorted wire if the furnace keeps running in heat mode.

Are you sure it blowing heat out the return of the furnace.
If its horizontal. Are you sure that installer didn't install it backwards.

Sorry, but it sounds like a low bid install.

Can you post pics of the install. We may be able to rell if it was installed backwards or not from the pics.

Won't the installer come back and fix it?

Well yes, I have to turn off power to turn the machine off since the thermostat does not help. I think the heat cycle is stuck on for some reason!

I wish the installer would come finish!
Its been over a year and they have not done so!

Last time we talked they said it was working when they left so Im screwed.

I have another heater here but the fan just went bad. It is much easier since it is an older honeywell relay and electronic ignitor burner set. There is no circuit board.

This one has a circuit board. I have the model number. I took the panel off and disconnected the red thermostat wire, then shorted the com24v to the test pin for a quick second and ran all test according to the front panel. Everything tested good. I let it run for almost an hour and I'm in absolute awe right now! :huh:

HMMMMMmmmmmm.....Syntax.....verbage....an extremely unusual claim of no documentation or invoice on a furnace that is only sold to solid dealers...I smell a Rotund Edward...or another similar personage


But by all mean ....tell how you hooked up with this installer....

luvheat 02-10-2009 08:56 PM

I don't remember how we got his number, but we did and he did some work and now I'm trying to finish it for him!

I'm waiting for you to tell me more lies about your fantasy furnace problem
or face me like the dumb cluck you are.

luvheat 02-11-2009 03:02 PM

Are you saying that I am a fantasy liar here named Eddie? Well sorry, I am not! I am new to this forum and I am asking for a little help regarding this newer model Bryant furnace I had installed that will not stop heating. If you can offer advice please do so!

P.S. I am not some fantasy liar named Eddie!

hvaclover 02-11-2009 03:21 PM
