Common Repairs on an Amana Furnace


According to its company website, Since 1934, Amana has earned recognition as being the leader in creating HVAC equipment. The concept behind Amana began with George Foerstner, a native to Amana, Iowa. During World War II the company was recognized and rewarded for supplying the military with walk-in coolers. When the war ended, the company once again focused on creating products for the home. As of 2010, Amana continues its quest to manufacture superior air conditioner and heat pump systems that all contain patented heat exchanger and air filtration systems. Amana maintains its reputation amongst homeowners and home contractors by offering limited lifetime warranties on parts and services for each of its units.

Preventable Repairs

  • Some of the most common repair calls made to service technicians are preventable. Most service calls are initiated because the furnace is not working in the sense that the blower is not blowing out hot air as it should. Other common repair calls involve the furnace not coming on at all as if it has no power. Common repair calls also involve questions as to why the furnace is not working or performing as efficiently as it once did. All of these repair calls are often preventable with care and maintenance of your furnace.

Thermostat Settings

  • If your problem involves a furnace that is not putting out warm air, one of the first things you should do is check the settings on your thermostat. Too often service people have been called to a home where the thermostat is simply not on the right setting.

Power Source

  • Another common problem is when the furnace will not come on at all. Although this can mean a major problem, check the most obvious problems first. Inspect the circuit breakers in your home and make sure they are all in the "ON" position. If they are, then check the wiring. If the wiring looks acceptable, then unplug both the inside and the outside units to reset them. If the unit is still not working, call a service person to your home.

Furnace Output

  • Yet another common problem involves questioning the output of the furnace. If your furnace is not working as efficiently as it used to, ensure that you have changed the filters on your furnace or have cleaned them thoroughly. Vacuum out any dust or debris that has collected around the furnace. Finally, check to be sure that nothing is obstructing the vents in your home. All of this will affect the output and efficiency of your furnace unit.
