  • Furnace Problem

    Hi all. I'm hoping someone can answer this before morning...lol...anyway when i turn my furnace on i hear the click in the furnace which i assume is the pilot light or something then no blower. i have tried everything. except relighting the pilot. I don't know if that's it and it's not as if the furnace is easy to get to. i have a 2003 wnt. Help it's supposed to be 10 here tonight. i have the little space heater with the laundry shoot open but i don't think that will be enough. thanks all.

    lol

    Nothing like last minute to find out it doesn't work. The blower is run off 12 volt so you might want to check the fuses.You can test if the heater is actually lighting by the heat comming out of the exhuast port.If it is working it will be hot so dont actually touch it.Send hubby out for a second ceramic heater one with two heat settings and a thermostat.You need to work on having a plan B.if all ells fails fill it with hot water and pray.
    Yea winter sucks ,it sucks every year.Winter backwards spells retniw ,does'nt mean anything I just thought I would mention it.
    Oh by the way if your out of propane just lie and come up with a better reason for it not working.

      Rosie that is not going to be enough. Get another, larger, ceramic heater for inside the cabin pronto!

      I remember my furnace getting all funky in the winter too. That was also the 2003 model.

        I use 2 ceramics in my trailer. The one in the back with the water on high and the one in the front on low. Keeps my trailer nice and toasty.

            furnace

            I also have a 2003 WNT van. The click you are hearing is actually the thermostat switch trying to tell the furnace to kick in. I have this problem now and then too. It turns out that for unknown reasons, the reset swicth gets tripped on the furnace. If you pop your head up into the top where the furnace is and feel along the right side, you will find a small round hole and inside is a switch, try switching it and see if the furnace will kick in then. Mine seems to be moody and sometimes the switch is the problem and other times it just plain doesn't want to work then in a few days it works fine again. The furnace does not have a pilot light. It has an electronic start to light it as needed rather than a pilot light that remains on all the time. ( I would also try the suggestion of checking fuses, but so far that has never been the problem when mine doesn't kick in)

              Thanks Carol

              Hey Carol, thanks for the suggestion. I worked friday with no heat and froze my butt off. Then i was calling and calling to find somewhere to get it in. Finally in a town like an hour away they could get me in. but who knows how long that would take to get done and how much it would be. A little late now to try but i will check it first thing in the morning. Thanks. And if it works wow that will have saved me a ton of money and time in traveling to forever away to get it fixed. I should take it anyway though as my water heater is not shutting off either. but i can deal with that. for now at least till i take my vacation to the atlanta pet fair. then i'll take it in to have that fixed when i don't need the van so fast. thanks again.

                Last time I had this problem, it was low on propane. The other problem I had was hair in the thermostat. I called Jamie at Wag'n Tails, and he knew what it was right off. I couldn't get the clicking sound to start. He told me to pull the thermostat cover off and the little plastic rectangular cover underneath. As soon as I did I could hear the furnace start. I blew it out with my dryer, and I was back in business. Use your customer service at Wag'n Tails, they are great.

                    Good for you at least you will not freeze your butt off now.I know when I first got my older van the thermostat did not work.It was very cold to say the least.I'm glad my furnace works now.It's been unusually cold around here in the morning.My water froze a couple of times.I have my hubby turn on the generator and water heater,furnace on when he leaves at six a.m and by the time I'm ready to go everything is nice and toasty.

                      new problem

                      Well the good news is i have heat. the bad news is as i was trying to get the heat running the pipes froze and broke my faucet, no prob honey fixed it. then i was filling with antifreeze and figured out the sudser drain hoze BROKE. so now i have to figure out how to get underneath the fix it. i hope that panel in the back come off so we can get under there to fix it. all under my tub is WET. I am just sick. and it's my own dumb fault for not putting the antifreeze in the lines. I'm so mad at myself.

                        van problems

                        Rosie, I am so sorry to hear you are having so many problems. This time of year is ripe for them and really a bad time to get them. I would call WNT for sure for tips on dealing with the hose breakage problem to get info on how to get to it.

                        Hope things get better for you soon.
