garage heaters/stack on fan switches

Empire_2 Member Posts: 2,343
When you say stack switches, do you mean sequencers? What is a stack on fan switch? I think it would help if you describe the equipment in detail and give some #'s such as BTU/HR, and a picture would also be nice. Wear of the switch has little or no bearing on the operation of the equipment. You definatly have some problems. Have a professional in to look at the thing before there is a fire!!!. Really, have a Pro check to make sure it is safe. This is exactly how people get themselves KILLED.

    garage heater fan switches

    My friend has a garage hearer(dont remember the make.) His stack on fan swich burns out almost every year. The heating pod itself burns out..I figure it gets used more cause its colder in the garage and gets more wear? Does anyone else notice the same thing? Unless i can solve it, im thinking of alternative solution.. A stack switch possible... Its not perfect but, unless i can solve the problem, its my next step.. ANY IDEAS OUT THERE? THANK YOU TO THOSE THAT TRY TO HELP ME!

    fan on switch

    Would really help if we knew what unit you are referring to and which parts you are talking about.....but if you have a warm air furnace and the parts (limit switch or fan control center is inside a cover or cabinet, maybe it's just too plain hot in there and they are burning out from excess heat. More info and correct terminology would really help.
