There are several problems that usually occur in the ducted gas heater. You should check them before the service call.
Here are some possible common issues and causes of the ducted heater not working.
The electricity power outage is one of the main causes of why the ducted heater is not working. The Gas Heater would not turn on without an electric power supply because its electric components need electricity to work. You should inspect the main circuit board/ breaker box to see if the breaker is not tripped or blown.
The top and the most frequent reason why your Ducted Heater has stopped working or fluctuating temperature is that the thermostat is not working well. First, you should inspect the thermostat to whether it is off. If it is off then switch it on and adjust the heat mode. If the thermostat is working on batteries, then you might need to replace the batteries.
Sometimes there may error code appears on the screen of your wall controller.
If your ducted heater blows cold air there may be a number of reasons.
The thermostat is very important for heating the central air. First, you should check whether it is set at the right temperature and it should be set on ‘auto’ except then ‘fan on because on the fan on the mode it will just blow air, then check the batteries and change them if necessary.
The pilot light regular issue causes ducted heating blows cold air. You should check your heating system’s pilot light is lit, if it is not then it will be the reason for the cold air.
Air filter collects a lot of dirt, debris, and other particles that air contains. The air filter must be cleaned or changed after 3 to 6 months. If the air filter contains a lot of dirt or clogs it did not allow airflow through the heater and cut off the warmth.
Leaking ducts may also cause cold air. Ducts can be damaged by rats and other animals or by getting old.
There are some of the common issues why the heater makes noise.
The smell could cause a dirty filter, however, there may be serious problems. If the smell continues shut off the heater and unplug it as soon as possible and call a professional for a diagnosis.
