Full Version: No Heat Coming From My Furnace

I have been trying to figure out why my furnace is not working on my class A. I have a suburban furnace. The AC works fine, but when I switch it to "furnace" it just blows out cold air. Does anyone have any idea where I can look for a problem, or what I can do? Thanks!! My propane is shut off but my electric is connected!

I guess this is a dumb question, but doesn't your furnace run on propane? How could it work with the propane shut off?

If by "furnace" you mean "heat pump", then I can understand your concern.

If I need the propane on for the furnace they why did the AC work with the propane off? ( I have no idea if it runs just on propane!) I will turn the propane on and try the furnace, but why would the AC work?

yikes...


OK, I'm curious if turning the propane on resolved the problem?

The AC in your RV is just like the AC in your house--it runs on electricity, not propane. The furnace runs on propane.

The two systems simply run off the same thermostat.

WELL I TURNED ON THE PROPANE AND I HAVE HEAT!!! I certainly learned something today and will NOT forget that AC runs on Electricity and the Furnace needs my propane.

THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR YOUR HELP!

Don't forget, the furnace also needs 12 volt DC - to run the fans.
