Furnace Vacuum Pressure Switch Hose?
 
1 Attachment(s)
I have a furnace that turns off before it gets to the preset temp, and I think it is the hose which is reading the pressure of the blower.

Anyone know if this is some kind of special material? If I want to replace it, can I use any kind of plastic hose from Home Depot of the correct diameter?

Thanks ahead of time...

Cheap vinyl hose doesn't last long.

Doubt its the hose, cause if it was a problem with the hose, you probably wouldn't have any heat. Did you check your air filters lately.

Yea if the hose has no cracks and it's clean then you have another problem.

Sounds like it may be the high limit opening up (it's normally closed). If this is the prob, could be dirty filter, dirty coil (will reduce air speed and cause the heat exchanger to get to hot), or the high limit has started reading the wrong temp., which happens fairly often.

So far,since writing the original message, I did clip off the slightly cracked end, and pushed it better onto the vaccum switch (the end at the bottom of the pic), and it is has been fine since then, not shutting off at all. So probably still need to replace it with something, just need to figure out what...thanks for everyone's responses
