    The filter is fine. The fan does not run. Even when I put it on fan only. Luckily, I have the 10 year parts and labor warranty.

    Thanks!

    I went up in the attic and there is a little red light flashing inside the heater/blower. You can see it through a little peep hole. It is a Trane variable speed.

    Chicken or Egg?

    I heard a funny noise and went outside to check my compressor. The big line was frozen. I went back inside and noticed my blower was not blowing. Did the coil freeze up and cause my blower to turn...

    turtle,

    Should I spray that bio-fresh in when my blower is blowing 50% or 100%? It is a variable speed. Would it be better to open it up and just spray it on the coil?

    Is it normal for heater/blowers to have small gaps around the doors and holes for wiring that allow attic air to be sucked in?

    mrbillpro,

    Yeah, it is not only butted up, but the coil is bigger than the heater hole and there are about 4 inches of the coil that don't get direct air from the blower.

    I think the tilt of the pan and even the design are the main issues. It may have been my problem with the old coil. This thing is sucking gallons out of the air. The guy put a little T in...
