    Fan blows but no heat

    Hi All,

    My heat has stopped working in the house. The fan still blows but the air temp coming out of the register is house temperature.

    I recently installed a hunter touchscreen thermostat controller and wired it up according to directions. The heat has been working for a week since I installed it though.

    I cracked open the air handler to inspect it. The 5 amp fuse is still ok. The cfm LED last night was flashing 9 times. This morning the LED is staying on for about 9 sec and turning off for about 2 sec. It will continue this cycle.

    Does anyone have any suggestions what the error on the board is telling me?

    My air handler is a Trane model# TWE049e13fb1

    Thanks so much for all your suggestions in advance.

    IT would be prudent to call a Pro. This will get your heat on faster and save you money in the long run. I could tell you how to figure out the coding. You may be able to fix your furnace on your own. But I am sure you do not have the testing tools you need to make sure your furnace is running at its best.

    Thanks for the reply.

    What does the coding mean?

    Testing tools to run at its best? Is it something I can rent from Home Depot's rentals?

    I'm curious what kind of things you do to make it run more optimal. Not necessary to answer but I'm always trying to learn.

    I live in Arizona so its still in the low 70's during the day so inot urgent that it needs to be fixed right now.

    Thanks

    What you have is an air handler with either a heat pump with electric or electric only.

    The 9 flashes is telling you it is set up for 900 CFM

    Does your Tstat have an emergency heat position?

    Oh, ok. Just wanted to let you know I fixed the problem. Hopefully its running optimally.

    I somehow didn't set the new thermostat to heat pump. I changed the setting from conventional to heat pump and its now blowing out air at an average of 93 degrees(hopefully that is normal) from all the registers.

    I called Hunter support before I realized the setting was incorrect. They suggest I take a jumper from Y1 to W2(auxiliary Heat).

    I only have 4 wires connected to the Tstat. Y1, G, R/RC and O. I hope thats all I need. It doesnt seem like I need the jumper and I dont understand what changes that would do. If anyone would enlighten me, I would appreciate it.

    Plus, sorry for my DIY post.

    Thanks for all your suggestions.

    W2 would be your axillary heat needed for defrost or second stage, emergency

    That's okay. We have no interest in childish sarcasm, either.

    I see an opportunity here to offer some insight.

    There is no logical reason to not get the Pro* designation. We already have an IP for everyone who has ever been here, as do ALL forums on the net.

    So, telling us a little about yourself and your experience is not National Security information.

    If you are a pro or a regular member who is a "pro" in the business, let me encourage you to get the designations that permit you to post answers in the AOP forums. It's not an elite club, it's a way of providing some level of clearance to allow reasonable posts, under the rules, to homeowners or business owners with questions about their equipment. Think of it as the same process you use to speak at a township meeting. They have a sign-in sheet so they know who is speaking. It's not rocket science to see why this is needed.

    If you have 35 years of experience in the mechanical fields (or more, like me) then I submit to you that you have an opportunity to share some of your experience with others, and perhaps convince a HO that professional intervention is needed where that applies, and maybe, save a life in the process.

    I'd say that idea is the polar opposite of "elite."

    Elitism... Becoming a Pro Member here puts you in an elite discussion group. The best in the world for this industry.

    Getting a * does two things. It will put you on the sites Contractor Locator Map (if you want it) and gives us a way to verify that you agree to the AOP section rules. Nothing more nothing less elite about it.

    There are many guys that are still site Guests that are in the business. Those who decide not to become a Pro Member here shouldn't give us the business about any elitism. The Pro Only forums that Guests are not allowed to see is just your tough luck loss. Guests that are in the business that don't want to become a Pro is one thing, those who think we are going to steal your birthday is another. To hand us grief is BS.

    Either obey the AOP rules please or stay out of AOP. No grey area, no misunderstanding. Easy as pie.

    For Control Man... 35 years is a long time but some of us passed that goal may moons ago but thanks for sharing.

    Oh... Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
