I have a Honeywell model number NHGK076AF01 propane furnace. It is about 15 years old. The problem started when I noticed the breaker had tripped and I had no heat. After resetting breaker, I tried again. Everything goes as it should except when time for blower fan to come on. It doesn’t come on if in "auto" mode but if I put it in the "on" mode, the blower comes on and I have heat.

I replaced the limit switch L170-40 and still have the same problem. There is another limit switch in the blower area L1-40. I checked this one with ohm tester and it seemed OK - it was closed tester beeped. I am scared to let it run too long - two minutes maybe - and when the blower doesn't come on, I set to "on". Another thing is I'm not sure if it would trip the breaker again if I didn’t turn the blower on instead of limit switch turning everything off. I'm not sure what else to try. Funny the blower works in "on" position and not "auto". It also works fine when using ac. Thank you for taking the time to read.enter image description hereenter image description hereenter image description here


This is a guess from the prints, your ac is probably on the high speed winding of the blower and the heat is on the low speed of the blower, when in ON it may use the high speed winding try disconnecting terminal 4 to the motor and make sure it doesn’t trip the breaker , this would narrow it down to the blower motor winding And you could use just the high speed winding until you can afford to replace the blower.

  • Thanks Ed I will give it a try
