Default PLEASE HELP: Amana Furnace Stops working & Produces oil/electic smell
Model Number: xxx-xxx-xxxxxx   Brand: Amana   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


We have Amana 80, an older model (20+ years likely) furnace (in the basement). My wife told me it is was not working right -making some noise (like trying hrad- humming) during the day . I smelled a burnt oil/cable smell. I checked the rooms for a fire and found nothing but realized it was coming from the vents. I checked the furnace. It will ignite and burn the gas for 2-3 min and stop. It will continue humming and try again... As it tries (humming) further it sends the smell to the two rooms (not all of the house).

What do you think it may be?
Some reading says it may be the on/off capacitor for the fan
Some says the motor on h fan may be gone
Any comments?
Thanks
Toni

yeah check the capacitor on the fan motor, but also there could be a fan relay switch on it that could be bad (most likely). is the capacitor deformed or do you see oil leaking from it? if so It cetainly needs to be replaced.
