DIY furnace repair in Saskatoon
Resetting the circuit breaker
A broken circuit break will cause the furnace not to turn on because of problems with the thermostat or faulty pilot light. There are so many things that could break the circuit breaker, but it is also easy to diagnose them and engage effective solutions. Begin by replacing the fuse and resetting the breaker so the furnace picks on with a new cycle.
Fix the pilot light
The furnace has a pilot light that will ignite the gas burner and cause the furnace not to turn on. A faulty pilot light is easy to fix because you only need to relight it to kick back normal functioning. Most furnaces have instructions for you to fix the light and relight the furnace by turning on the residual gas. Adjust the flame adjustment screw if the pilot light does not resume its function, or call a professional if the problem persists.
Do you understand the basics of checking the furnace’s function? It is time to learn the basic ways of checking general health, such as venting, filtration, and heating processes. Spot the following issues to find the proper furnace repair in Saskatoon:
- The air filter – This filter is one of the main components of the furnace and could easily clog the filter to cause air obstruction. A blocked air filter causes overheating and eventually severe damage to the system. Check the filter every month s so, and clean it as per the manufacturer’s instructions. You may need to replace it if the light filter does not turn on.
- Check the thermostat – The digital thermostat may need new batteries every six or twelve months. Clean it of all the dust and tuck away any exposed wires to ensure the thermostat is reading the right temperature.
