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 hissin…g sound as the refrigerant is boiling inside the copper but not removing any heat and is causing high head pressure in the compressor which will shut down the outdoor unit via the pressure switch.\n. \nThe fix could be as simple as replacing the evap fan motor.
Heat coming through the floor . Heat is coming from the engine.
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 Contro…l Module receives its blower operation signals via the heater control switches, and it energizes that relay. There are so many 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.
Answer . The heat valve is stuck.
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 heate…r is designed for side venting or verticle venting! . If installed improperly, the water heater may allow deadly carbon monoxide into your home and possibly cause a fire! . I think this one is best left up to a professional. Hope this helps.
How do I fix problem of My 2005 Town and Country Electric fan not shutting off when engine turned off?
Answer . sounds like a bad relay change the fan relay
The problem is most likely a faulty blower control module.
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.
"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.
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
One shut off the gas /electric other emergency switch FIRST
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 sometim…es condensation can drip on the pilot. If you have a flame when starting the pilot light as you are pushing down on a non forced 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.
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
Power vented has a fan in the vent that is heat activated and draws the exhaust out. Standard relies on heat rising to vent.
On any water heater, the shut off is on the incoming cold pipe.
