Limit control switch help
 
Does anyone know how to bypass a limit control switch so that the thermostat will still kick the blower on and off?

Bypassing safety switches is very dangerous and not recommended.

Why do you want to bypass the limit?

Not something that should be done, even if you only want to run the blower to circulate heat, from another source.

Too easy for someone to accidentally, turn the stat up to use the furnace.

thermostat controls the burner not the blower. You can put the blower on the "on" position which will run 24/7 but the burner limit should never be bypassed.

It is an old fashioned thermostat. It doesn't have an on/off. You turn the dial to the desired temp. That's it.

Also this is a wood furnace, not gas.

WOOD BURNER?

And you want to bypass the limit? Sorry we don't give info that will kill people

and cause house fire.

To knowingly by pass a safety limit is a felony.
