Furnace's blower is on all the time but gas burner does not start
Hi all.
This is my first time in here. Happy New Year!
Please help me with this:
My furnace's blower stays on all the time, even if the thermostat switch is set to Auto. The pilot is working properly, but the gas burners never come on.

Furnace make and model please.

It is most likely a fan limit switch. Some fan limits have a little white button on them to turn on the blower. Push it in for manual, and pull it out for automatic. It is usually on a little silver box often on the front of the furnace. Sometimes they are on the plenum close to the top of the furnace. Or behind a service panel in the front. Otherwise it could be a short in the T-stat wires, or a bad fan relay.

If you have AC, make sure the thermostat in not set to FAN ON mode...

guess I didnt really read your post...:), if you have more than one zone check that tstat as well, and like mentioned above check the fan limit switch... located on the furnace, you should know that the fan is controlled by a relay, so you either have a short in a wire OR some other control is turning the fan on.
