Furnace Starts Then Stops – Troubleshooting | Repair and Replace

Furnace keeps shutting off? In this episode of Repair and Replace, Vance shows how to troubleshoot a furnace that is short cycling or keeps shutting off. If the furnace runs for a minute and then shuts off, then its likely that a safety switch has tripped. These switches can cause the furnace to shut off prematurely or shut off before reaching the desired temperature. The easiest way to narrow down the problem is to look at the furnace error codes, but you can still troubleshoot the furnace by observing the startup sequence.
