Just finished installing new motor,set thermostat to "auto" and "heat",burners came on ,but not the blower motor,put fan in "on" mode with a call for heat,blower motor operates with burners for approximately one minute,then the motor stops running,but the burners contine firing,blower motors operates fine in"on "mode without a call for heat,works fine in "auto"/cool mode.Anybody have any idea what's going on:(

Sounds like you may have crossed up some wiring for the heat speed or have poor connections somewhere. Putting it in ON energizes the motor thru the cooling relay. Was it an identical motor or a universal type. Post the model and serial # of the furnace.

How long did you wait after the burners come on to see if the blower will come on?

The heat exchange has to get hot and make a limit close to turn on the blower anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes.

Also if you can post model

Just trying to help plumber101 and the OP, FYI all the new furnaces with circuit boards are timed on for the fan and it usually is after 45 seconds or they would overstress the heat exchanger. The old bi-metal jobs took a long time, usually 3-5 minutes but gave you nice roasty heat.

Cheers

I waited for what semed to be approximately five minutes,I wired the new motor the same way the OEM motor was wired,noted location of each wire upon disconnecting,but will do a double check,the model number is:
GNI060A012BIN/serial number L93055211,Where can one get a wiring diagram or troubleshooting guide for this furnacs?

Can you post a pic or post wire colors and to which terminal you made the connection?

Wil try and get some pics on Wednesday and double check wiring,etc.There wasn't a wiring diagram on the door as usual.Tried searching info on the web address posted,but only goes back to 1998,believe this unit is much older,I remember when I had to purchae an inducer motor kit,it was $248.00,and the distributor commented on it's age.

check for 120v at fan heat speed term and neutral during heating cycle. if none exsists, and you changed the blower because of the problem you described, you likely have a bad board and replaced the blower for nothing

limits are always closed and open upon sensing too much heat
limits do not control the fan cycle other than turning it on upon an overheating condition and turrning off the heating source gas/oil

He can also connect 110 to the blower terminals when disconnected form the board to check motor.. it the motor runs forever it's not blower motor.. Mabe has burn out low speed windings.In cooling mode you are on either med or high speed if you have 3 speed motor

May be the old motor wasn't bad either.

I'd test the old motor if you still have it.
If it works, well, you have a spare now.
And know to look at other possible problems.

Thanks Ken and Yuri but I assumed this had a fan/limit. Ya know Limit closed and fan open

I figured it may that old and not have a delay on on the board

But you know what happens when you ass-u-me
