How to Troubleshoot a Nordyne E1EH-015HA Electric Furnace Unit


The Nordyne E1EH-015HA electric furnace is a residential unit designed to heat using electricity as opposed to gas or oil. Operated with the use of a blower, the furnace is controlled with a thermostat and can be used in conjunction with an air conditioner as well as the furnace heater. Regular cleaning and maintenance should help keep the electric furnace working well but problems with the furnace, such as temperature accuracy or starting problems, can occur and require troubleshooting to resolve.

Things You'll Need

  • Dishwashing liquid
  • Water
  • Philips head screwdriver
  • Check the main power switch on the Nordyne electric furnace if the furnace is not operating. Replace or reset the fuse or circuit breaker if the power switch is already set to “On” and the furnace is still not working.

  • Press the red reset button on the main control panel if the button is pushed in and the furnace has power but is not working.

  • Adjust the thermostat 5 to 10 degrees warmer and set the function switch to “Heat” or “On” if the furnace is not turning on but all power is operational.

  • Turn off the Nordyne furnace and remove the air filter if the furnace is not heating the home as expected. Clean the filter if it is permanent or replace it if it is disposable.

  • Open all registers in the home and move items away from the registers if the furnace is running constantly, or the home is not warming properly. Check the area around the furnace and clear away any potential obstructions.

  • Check the mounting screws on the furnace if there is rattling or vibrating during use and tighten as needed.

Tips & Warnings

  • Contact Nordyne for service if the problem continues despite troubleshooting, or if you are not confident of your ability to identify, troubleshoot or repair the issue.
