If you’re looking for help fixing your American Standard Furnace, look no further! Our comprehensive American Standard Furnace Troubleshooting guide will explain common issues, provide tips, and show you how to read your model’s error codes.
Most likely, either the electrical system providing your furnace’s power has shorted or the power switch has blown. Try resetting your furnace’s circuit breaker. If it has blown, you will need to replace it.
The furnace’s igniter might either be cracked or faulty. Check the part for cracks, if it is then replace the igniter. If it isn’t cracked, use a multimeter to test for continuity.
Your thermostat might be adjusting incorrectly, causing the furnace to cycle on and off too often. If your thermostat has an adjustable calibration scale, adjust the heat anticipator. If this does not stabilize the unit, you may have to replace the thermostat.
Not blowing hot air?
Your blower motor may have completely burnt out. If this doesn’t seem to be the case, then the connecting belt may have simply broken. Test to see if power is reaching the motor. If it does, but isn’t running, the motor has likely failed. If the motor runs but air doesn’t move, the connecting belt has probably broken. You’ll have to replace the belt.
Blowing too much air?
The control board regulates the amount of voltage that reaches each functioning part. If the relay that controls the blower motor has failed, it will continually send voltage to the motor. Replace the control board.
The contact that controls the blower motor on your thermostat may be stuck closed, causing the blower motor to run continuously. Use a multimeter to check for continuity. If it appears the thermostat is the issue, replace it.
Check the drain pipe.
Starting and then stopping shortly after?
Your furnace’s flame sensor monitors the burner, detecting whether a flame is present. If it is either defective or dirty, it will not be able to detect a flame. If dirty, clean the sensor using a fine abrasive pad. If faulty, replace the flame sensor.

Your professional guidance has highlighted the B Vent should be installed for the chimney exhaust in order to comply with the building & safety code. You have even performed leak test & dial test in order to make sure the whole installation is in a perfect manner. The registration of the warranty is also very convenient and easy.

Daniel was really great to work with. His communication and genuine care for the work being done made all the difference in the world to me especially as we’ve never had good experiences with contractors in the past.
Daniel showed up when he said he would, and took his time to explain to me what caused my humidifier to malfunction. His customer service skills are superior and his quality workmanship made the experience a pleasant one.

After our old (20+ years) unit gave out, I used HomeStars to obtain quotes for a replacement. Within 30 minutes of posting, I was speaking with Daniel, who was polite and helpful throughout the process. He offered a fair price and a few different products to choose from, and was able to do the installation the same week.
