My power vented 40 gallon gas water heater fan motor will not shut off after the tank is fully heated. What can be done to fix this problem?
Check the thermostat. It may be stuck on. Try changing the temperature setting and see how it reacts. If you cant get it working by playing with it, you may have to have it replaced.

What's the problem if your AC fan outside keeps shutting off and starts a hissing sound and no air is coming through the vents?
Answer . You need to provide more information on the problem.\n. \nIf you have no air flow inside, it could be the indoor fan is not running. This could produce a hissing sound as the refrigerant is boiling inside the copper but not removing any heat and is causing high head pressure in the co…mpressor which will shut down the outdoor unit via the pressure switch.\n. \nThe fix could be as simple as replacing the evap fan motor.

What is the difference between a direct vent water heater and a power direct vent water heater and how do you know if you need one or the other?
Answer . \nGenerally, a direct vent must be next to an outside wall or be connected to a chimney that extends 2-4 feet above roof peak (all gases and fumes from the burner will vent naturally). A power vent is used when the unit is put inside the home in a closet or on an interior wall. It must …have venting to an outside wall and must have a blower fan to remove gases from the water heater so they don't back up into the house. (MORE)
Should you get a Heat Pump or a Gas Heater if you cannot run a gas line to the heater although you can rent two 100-gallon propane tanks?
Answer . I am not all that familiar with propane but it seems to me that you would use up those two tanks in a very brief period of time. Your heater would have to be converted to use propane and you would have to have a regulator or two for those tanks. Not a good idea. If this is something you… feel that you have to do then I hope that you have more thank adequate insurance coverage not only for your home but any home near you. If you live in a wooded area consider the fire that would ensue that could take our hundreds of acres of property. You can be held liable for your actions. Ken (MORE)
Heater fan keeps running even after your 1997 Pontiac transport minivan is shut off how do i fix this problem?
The blower motor gets its power through a relay, and it is not unheard of for contacts of relays to stick together after they are de-energized.. As well the (BCM) Body Control Module receives its blower operation signals via the heater control switches, and it energizes that relay. There are so man…y might be's.. There are so many relays and modules in these newer vehicles that it takes an active mind to keep them separated as to which does what.. Since the blower continues to run, and the blower relay contacts have an unswitched electrical connection straight from the fuse box, you might have a sticking relay.. The heater relay is in the engine compartment fuse box, near the battery and washer fluid container.. Something funny that I have done a few times, is that I thought the heater fan was running, but it was actually the engine cooling fans that were running. They are meant to run as long as the engine heat calls for it, Ignition on or not. (MORE)
If you look on the backside of the climate control unit in the dash you will find a glass buss style fuse. It will be blown. Replace the fuse and your fan will stay on with your headlights.

Answer . [Note: There are critical safety concerns involved here. Read the whole answer!] . I'm no plumber, but I do know this:. You need to determine if your water heater is designed for side venting or verticle venting! . If installed improperly, the water heater may allow deadly carbon mono…xide into your home and possibly cause a fire! . I think this one is best left up to a professional. Hope this helps. (MORE)

Your blower motor relay went bad. You may also need to replace either the blower motor or one of the climate control sensors. If your blower motor squeals or makes a scraping sound it is going bad and will damage the blower motor relay.. JQ
If I cant get the blower motor to shut off when the car is not running Does anoyne have a fuse diagram for a 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee or any suggestions as to how you can fix this problem?
pull fuse probably under the hood if not in the fuse pannel under the dash.
Air still in the vents or freshly-shut coils still contain heat for a short amount of time after turning off the power. Also, it could take a short amount of time for the fans blowing the air to slow down, even after cutting power.
My 1997 Acura 3.2TL heater fan won't work on any speed Heat will come through by gravity though Once in a while fan will kick on then go off after I shut car off what do have to do?
You need to have your heater looked at and possibly replaced. Thisis one of those parts that could be found at a salvage yard and putin for some cheap labor.
Why can't you turn off the fan for the heater in our 2003 Chrysler town and country When I shut the power to the climate control off the fan blows harder?
If you have an automatic temp system, the resistor block hasfailed. The blower motor resistor block is located behind the glovebox.
Absolutely not. It's located on the left side of the vehicle near the front tire.
pull the filler nozzle out about 1 inch or so, so air can get into the tank
"One hour for a new water heater" for a NEW one. If its a few years old, Id wait about 2 hours or so. That way it wont get cold while you are in the shower, and it can refill at the same time that it dispenses.
Generally automotive blower motors are designed to run on the lowest speed even though the heater is turned off. The purpose is to circulate fresh air into the cab.
Thr R value of the water heater insulation will differ among various water heaters in various price ranges. As you can imagine a heater with 12 year warranty will be better insulated than a 5 year model.
drop ur tank clean it up new full filtter in u good to go a takes about 1 hour in half
There are a few things to check. First check that the A/C compressor is not turned on inside the car.The cooling fan comes on with the A/C compressor. Next check the cooling fan relay under the hood on the driver side of the engine compartment. It may be stuck. Swap out with one of those other relay…s that is next to it,they are the same relay. Next it could be the temp. sending unit is faulty. It tells the computer to turn on the fan. (MORE)
Drain all of the gasoline from the fuel tank and replace it with fresh stuff. Then replace the spark plug, which will be no good anymore. After repriming the fuel lines, it should work fine.. You can verify that you have water in your fuel tank by pouring some into a translucent container and letti…ng it sit for a few minutes. There will be two layers if you have water mixed in with your gasoline. The gas will float to the top and the water will settle to the bottom.. To avoid this problem in the future, always fill the gas tank and gas can after each use and keep the gas can off the ground. Inexpensive gas can also be contaminated with water. What usually happens is that warm air enters the fuel can and when the air cools (at night, for instance), the water vapor from the air condenses out in the fuel tank or gas can. This is more of a problem on humid days. (MORE)
If you have a second floor toilet that is no longer in use and the water lines are shut off to it is there anything else that needs to be done. Is there any danger of vent gas?
If the water lines are more then 24" dead ended the water inside these pipes becomes contaminated and can cause major health problems. . The drain lines must be capped and the vent kept active
1- the valve does not hold properly . 2- By pass allowing cold to enter the hot water line . 3- Someone failed to close the return circulation line
The engine cooling fan will continue to run because the engine is hot. Once the engine has cooled down the fan will shut off. If it never shuts off you may have a bad temp switch or relay.
Because the flue is too far for nature to vent the fumes properly as heat rises but in some installations there is not enough PITCH up from the appliance.
Because the resistor is shot on my 93 jeep the motor runs on high all the time so I am having to order a resistor which should cure the problem but I would replace the motor also.
the resistor bank most likely open circuit there is a small heat fuse in it that often blows you have to replace the unit it is mounted in the air duct after the fan
Your 1992 achieva has no heat ive changed the thermostat the heater fan checked the vents and the heater core is fine im at a loss?
I had this problem once with a different vehicle. You may check the heater control. That may be the problem. Hope this helps.
well for one is your keyed turned all the way off. But i would say you probably have a short in you wiring somewhere. But try turning off the heater while the car is running then shut your car off.
Usually there is an overheat safety which shuts off the gas valve is the heat in the firebox gets to high for some reason. You need a professional to diagnose the reason the overheat switch is shutting off the gas.
There is no heat fixing or water rinsing in capsule staining because they can destroy the capsule or give false positive results.
To infinity and beyond. Without pilot light, burner will never turn on to heat water.
Cold water intake valve is wide open but no hot water volume or pressure in 3 year old 40 gallon gas water heater.?
It is probably the individual faucets. Take the screen off at the end of the spouts.
if its not a forced air water heater then yes its should be hot but not red hot.
Thermocouple is most likely the problem but it also can be wind and draft which blows out the pilot light and very rare it can be you have a air pocket in your line or sometimes condensation can drip on the pilot. If you have a flame when starting the pilot light as you are pushing down on a non for…ced air gas water heater and the pilot goes out after you release the pilot handle then 90 out of a 100 times its your Thermocouple. If you have a forced air tank type gas water heater it can be a lot more sophisticated and I recommend you read your manual trouble shoot guide and follow those steps for YOUR specific water heater.

There should be a brass or yellow accordion looking flexible metal pipe near the bottom follow it to where it connect's usually towards the back wall and there should be 1/4 turn brass valve. if not better get one, and turn off at meter
If you do not vent a natural gas water heater, anytime of the year, CO and CO2 will build up in your home. Anytime you are burning anything indoors you will need to vent the product. The only exception are 'ventless' heaters/fireplaces/ect. If you use a ventless system make sure you spend money on a… CO and CO2 monitor. (Not a bad idea anyway when burning anything indoors.) I think that is what you are asking? (MORE)
How long does a 40 gallon electric heat water heater at 140 degrees take to heat up after restarting with cold water?
depends on the wattage of the elements along with the temp of the cold water but i would guess an hour or two
Is it bad when your toilet overflows and gallons of water pour down a heating vent if so how is it fixed?
You can have the ducts cleaned or just not worry about it. They will dry out fairly quickly. Hopefully it was mainly water and not less pleasant things. Take out the vent, use a towel to clean what you can and maybe spray some disinfectant down the vent.
Power vented has a fan in the vent that is heat activated and draws the exhaust out. Standard relies on heat rising to vent.
It never hurts to have a filter it will only improve your fish's chances of survival and decrease your need to clean.
Possibly because you are just using the hot water too much, or possibly because your tank has a problem keeping lit. -If you have to frequently re-light the pilot, you need a new 'thermocouple' .
One can purchase a 50 gallon gas water heater at a variety of department stores such as Sears, KMart, and Walmart. 50 gallon gas water heaters can also be purchased online via websites run by companies such as Amazon and Sears.
Called the 'exhaust chimney'. It should usually be a double thickness aluminium or steel tube.
The solar panels absorb energy from then sun, the solar energy isthen transformed into heat energy causing the water to heat up.
The sun warms the water, which is normally in thin pipes. The warmwater rises into a tank which is often at the top of the heater.Colder water is then forced down into the pipes where it gets warmin turn. So the water in the tank gets warmer and warmer.
