rheem furnace problem


my furnace is not working and it seemed to not be getting power. I replaced the transformer and cleaned it up, changed the filter. it came back on but runs very high and overheats to the point it blew a fuse. what would be the next step to finding the problem

rheem furnace problem


find the short that is causing this. Start looking the wires between furnace and thermostat.

Check blower capacitor, it may be weak and running the blower backwards.
