Question

HEIL furnace won't throw heat


This furnace has been a problem from the beginning.

It's model NHGK050AF01 and is an attic unit.

When the thermostat is calling for heat the inducer blower will start and it sounds like the pilot is lighting, but the blower does not come on.

We've had a problem when it is cold as the condensation drain would freeze. I've checked that and actually put a small space heater on it.

After about 15 minutes of attempting to come on I get a message on the thermostat of "-AC" in place of the set temperature.

With temps in the teens it makes for chilly sleeping. :-(

Sounds like a bad blower motor.

Does the burner actually fire up? How old is the unit. If it doesn't fire up then it is not the blower.

I'm not sure about the burner firing up. How do I check? The unit is 11 years old.

Is there exhaust coming out the wall. Otherwise you need to go into the attic and look at the viewing port by the burner.
