Before calling MacGregor for service there are a few simple things you can check yourself:
- Check That the Power Is On - Even though it's gas powered, a furnace requires electricity to run, so check the power to the unit at the circuit breaker panel. If a circuit is tripped, switch it back to the ON position. Note, if the circuit trips again, DO NOT RESET IT MORE THAN ONCE, this is a safety measure to prevent an electrical fire in the event of a malfunction. Have an electrician inspect the system.
- Check the Thermostat Is Turned To the HEAT Position, then try turning the temperature up a couple degrees for testing purposes.
- Check the Furnace Filter. An extremely dirty and clogged filter will make the furnace overheat, which will cause it to shut down as a safety precaution. Install a new filter to allow it to breathe easier.
- Check the Pilot Light. This only applies to older gas furnaces, newer units have electric ignition. If your pilot light is out consult your owner's manual for the correct way to light the pilot.
- Check the Fuel Supply. If there are other gas appliances in the home, such a gas range or fireplace, check that they are functioning. If not, contact your utility company for service.
If none of the above steps works and the furnace still won't turn on, call MacGregor. We'll get the heat back on FAST.
Signs that Your Central Heating System Needs Service
While some heating system problems are easy to recognize, other symptoms may be less obvious. They include:
- Loud or unusual noises when running
- Running significantly longer than it has in the past
- Cycling on and off for short periods of time
- The indoor temperature does not reach the temperature set on the thermostat
- Frequently tripping the circuit breaker
- Strong smells when running (it's normal to smell some odors when running a furnace or AC after it has been off for an extended period of time)
If you're experiencing any of the above problems, play it safe and give MacGregor a call. We will inspect your heating system to ensure that it's operating safely and reliably.
