Thread: Rollout Switch
12-08-2011, 08:20 PM #1
Has anyone had an issue with the new ICP Comfortmaker C9MPV gas furnace rollout switch that is on the right side of the burner box keeps tripping. New construction install of furnace and 1 out of 5 of these furnaces that my company has installed seems to have this issue.I have checked exhaust,intake, gas pressure, cfm,static pressure, clocked the gas meter, etc. The only thing that has worked is replacing the entire furnace and problem is solved. Can you please weigh in or make some suggestions other than having to replace an entire furnace.

do u have a return air leak on that side of the furnace? and when you replace the furnace u seal it up not knowing and the problem goes away. are these 80's or 90's? have u put a CA on them?

The furnaces are installed in the attic, upflow, 90+, Duct supply system is a plenum that branch off to triangle duct board that branches off to rooms etc, 2 central returns that come off both sides of the furnace, no RA BOX. We use duct mastic to seal connections, and our install team goes over board with that stuff. I used a fieldpiece CA which was not very useful, so I convinced the company to get CA and we now have the tpi 709 CA for every tech. As of this post the CA have not been used on any of these furnaces yet.

Contact your ICP rep to tell you how to clean the oil out of the secondary heat exchanger.

Contacted ICP before we started replacing the furnace for tech support and we learned that the secondary heat exchanger has an oil in it and the furmace needs to be ran atleast for 30mins to burn off the oil. I have seen some of these furnaces that wasnt started up correctly and the oil in the secondary HX turned into this thick greasy substance that took a considerable amount of cleaning and afterwards no problem with the furnace. However when this happened the high limit tripped not the rollout swith.

Did you ever stop to think, and forget to start again?

Make sure the burners are properly aligned with the heat exchanger inlet holes. Every so often you may get a furnace or rooftop that they are slightly off and the flame is licking the edge of the HX burner hole and over heats the chamber tripping the roll outs.
