If your heating system fails to respond when you turn it on, then obviously there’s a problem. You should start by checking the breaker box in your home to see that power is flowing to it. If it is, and it still won’t turn on, make sure you cut power to it, then call in a repair service. It’s helpful to understand that there are numerous reasons why your heating system won’t turn on. It might have nothing to do with electricity, which is why you need a professional service to take care of it. Here is a list of a few possible causes.
Gas can leak out of your system from a breach in the lines, a cracked heat exchanger, or a clogged vent, among other reasons. Many modern furnaces have safety features that automatically turn off the heater if they sense a gas leaky, carbon monoxide, or other poisonous components in the air. The good news is that it keeps your household safe. The bad news is that you’ll need to get it fixed before it will start again.
Old systems use a pilot light, which can be blown out in some circumstances. Newer systems use electrical ignition, which can fail or break down just like any other component. A trained technician can reignite the pilot light or replace the faulty ignition switch, regardless of which one your heater needs.
This motor serves to run that fan that blows hot air into your home. If it’s not working, the system will shut down to prevent further stress on other components, such as the heat exchanger.
