How to Troubleshoot a Maytag Furnace


Maytag is a global company that makes several types of home appliances and is also active in the home heating and cooling business. Maytag furnaces are designed to keep your house warm with high efficiency, but sometimes problems can pop up that may affect the furnace’s performance. Keep on top of issues before they become real problems and your Maytag furnace will continue to run smoothly.

  • Leave your house immediately if you detect the smell of gas inside. Phone the gas supply company from a neighbor’s phone, or call 911 if the gas company isn’t available.

  • Check on the fuse box or circuit breakers if the furnace stops working due to loss of power in the house. Replace the fuse or circuit breaker if necessary, or phone the utility company to restore power.

  • Replace the batteries if your model of Maytag furnace has a digital thermostat and you can’t see a temperature reading in the display.

  • Slide the furnace filter out and inspect it at least two times per year. Replace it with a new one from your hardware store if it appears dirty or clogged up.

  • Call a technician if you can hear the furnace working, but no air is coming out of the vents. Explain the problem so he can look for blockages that may be affecting the air flow.

Tips & Warnings

  • Phone your Maytag dealer to schedule a maintenance appointment so they can check for leaks and make sure the venting system is working properly.
  • Don’t use your own phone, unplug or plug in any appliances, or create an open flame before you leave the house after smelling gas.
