Rheem Furnace Diagnostic Codes

Many times when you are having problems with your furnace, especially with the newer models, a code will come up indicating there is an issue with your furnace. The three most common Rheem furnace diagnostic codes relate to the ignitor, the blower, and the flame sensor.

When these problems occur a diagnostic code will appear either on the thermostat or inside the control panel. If you notice that a diagnostic code has come up and your furnace is malfunctioning, you have options, on how to deal with it and get your furnace working properly.

If your ignitor is malfunctioning, depending on the model of the furnace you own, you will probably get a Rheem diagnostic code. In cases such as this the diagnostic code can help you get your furnace back up and running.

You should start by calling Rheem and telling them what code has appeared on your furnace. They can then, either help you remedy the problem over the phone, get the correct parts sent to you, or inform you that you will need the assistance of a technician. The codes exist to help you determine what is wrong and how to fix it quickly and inexpensively.

Sometimes when when you get the Rheem diagnostic code about your blower, this is something you may be able to take care of on your own. Sometimes the timer on the fan is not set at the right time, and the blower will start to run before the unit has started heating, causing cold air to blow into your home.

Fixing this, is just a matter of adjusting the timer on the blower to come on when the unit has heated. If this does not solve your problem, then you may need to call and get customer support, or call a technician to get this problem taken care of before your house gets too cold.

The flame sensor is a sensitive piece of equipment in your furnace. If you are getting the Rheem diagnostic code telling you that your flame sensor is malfunctioning, then you can take steps yourself before calling customer support, or a technician.

Many times, the flame sensor gets dirty. When it is dirty it stops functioning. It is a great idea to clean it regularly to keep this problem from occurring. If this happens the first thing to do is clean it. You will find instructions in your owner’s manual on how to do so. If cleaning does not solve the issue, then call customer support or a technician to have a look at it.

Rheem Diagnostic codes exist to help you determine what is going wrong with your furnace, and to help you get it fixed in a timely fashion. Nobody wants to sit in a cold house in the middle of winter, so if you get a diagnostic code on your furnace, it is a good idea to investigate it before it becomes a bigger problem.

Another good way to stop problems before they start is by cleaning your air filter, and making sure the area the furnace is kept in, is clean, cool, and dry. In the event parts are defective in your furnace, be aware that you do have a ten year limited warranty. If you want to stay warm, pay attention to what your furnace has to say.

My Rheem Furnace Keeps Shutting Off

You turn it back on, and every fifteen minutes your Rheem furnace keeps shutting off. This is an incredibly frustrating problem. One of the disappointing things about the furnace is that this is not all that unique of a problem.

Furnaces used to be made to last. Now, they seem to be made to shutdown. There are a couple reasons for this.

First, manufacturers have discovered that if they make their equipment less reliable, people will have to buy more of them. If they build things to last for years, then they will not sell any more of them. So, they build things to last just beyond their warranty.

This is sad, but true. And you really can’t blame them. A company like Rheem has been around for years. They know the name of the game. They sold furnaces to people thirty years ago that are just now breaking down.

That means they haven’t made a cent off of those people in thirty years. That’s not enough business to stay in business. They aren’t making that same mistake again.

Another reason why the equipment is finicky is because most companies are trying to make appliances more energy efficient. A furnace used to be able to work for thirty years because there wasn’t much to it.

Now there are tons of bells and whistles on furnaces. Every time a manufacturer adds another piece to a product, there is more potential that the product will break.

The combination of these two things has lead to more and more furnaces having problems. So, this might be why your Rheem furnace keeps shutting off. All of that might not help you with your current problem, but at least now you know why it’s happening.

A more immediate solution to the problem might be presented if you look at the thermostat. Depending on what model you have, you might be able to figure out the problem from the number of blinking lights on the thermostat, or from the error code listed.

If either of these things is present, you should look them up on your guidebook that came with the thermostat.

It might be an easy fix. Hopefully you will be able to patch things up without having to call the repairman. Chances are it will not be an easy fix.

If the rheem furnace keeps shutting down, it’s probably trying to prevent something from happening. That sometimes is probably expensive. You might have to shell out the big bucks to have warmth again.

So, make sure that everyone in your house is well bundled. Unexpected furnace failures will often lead to colds and fevers. Don’t let this happen. Make sure everyone stays warm.
Well, I hope this will help you with the fact that your Rheem furnace keeps shutting off.

This annoying situation is sure to frustrate you to no end. At the very least I can say that you are fully justified with being absolutely annoyed with your furnace. Maybe you should get a new one.

Replacement Rheem Furnace Parts

Some people think that Rheem furnace parts are harder to find than they actually are. Because of this, they end up spending too much money on them. Let me explain how this works.

It all comes down to the supply and demand economic model. When the supply is up, then the price goes down. If the demand is up, then the price goes up. If the supply goes down, and the demand goes up, then the cost of product will be at its highest.

Most people recognize this model even if they haven’t heard of it before. Deal seekers will naturally try to stick to things in greater supply. If something is scarce, then deal seekers don’t really need it.

A problem arises when we fool ourselves into thinking that something is in small supply. Remember, the lower the supply – the higher it is going to cost.

So, if you think that Rheem furnace parts are in small supply, then you will be more willing to spend a lot of money on them. This is an economic theory that has been proven again and again. As long as you believe the supply is running out, you will want to spend more on the product.

Well, now we get to the point of all of this. Rheem furnace parts are not in small supply. There are many Web sites that sell Rheem furnace parts. You just need to look for them.

There are some Web sites which will obviously sell the parts. These Web sites will usually have higher prices. They know that you think that they are the only people who have the product. They fool people into thinking the supply is small so that their prices are justified.

The Web sites you wouldn’t think of first are the ones who price the parts according to their worth. These are the sites that you want to buy from. You will get a much better deal at these sites.

This logic is true in many situations. Companies know when they are the chief provider of a good. If they think that people will only be coming to them for their products, then they won’t worry about competitively pricing their products.

This all has to do with supply and demand. So, you need to increase your perception of supply. That is how you will start saving money.

The sooner you realize that most everything you want is in high supply, the sooner you will start saving money on those things.

So, if you need Rheem Furnace parts, don’t go to the obvious places to buy it. Instead, try some of the sites where you can find lots of different things. These sites might have the best deal.

I hope that this will help you as try to purchase the parts you need. Remember, your perception of the economic climate will weigh heavily on how much you spend and save. That’s why you need to always be thinking rationally while you are shopping.
