Rheem Furnace Repairs
If you're looking for help fixing your Rheem Furnace, look no further! Our comprehensive Rheem Furnace repair guide will explain common issues, provide tips, and maybe show you how to repair your appliance.
Rheem manufactures appliances that homeowners have come to trust. Even a trustworthy appliance requires occasional maintenance or repair, however. If you’re in need of Rheem appliance repair from experienced professionals, your local Appliance Helper can help.
Rheem Furnace not heating
The igniter gets very hot and glows bright orange to light the gas burner. If the igniter fails or cracks, the furnace won’t heat. To determine if the igniter is faulty, remove the igniter and inspect it for cracks. If the igniter is cracked, replace it. If the igniter is not cracked, use a multimeter to test the igniter for continuity. If the igniter does not have continuity, replace it.
Rheem Furnace is noisy or loud
The blower wheel blows air out of the furnace and through the house. The blower wheel is attached to the blower motor shaft with a set screw. If the set screw is loose, the blower wheel will wobble on the motor shaft, and the wheel will be noisy as it turns. Check the set screw to ensure that it is properly tightened. Next, inspect the wheel for damage. If the blower wheel is damaged, replace it.
Rheem Furnace starts then stops
The flame sensor monitors the burner to detect whether or not a flame is present. If the flame sensor is defective, it might fail to detect a flame. If the flame sensor does not detect a flame, the control board will shut off voltage to the gas valve to prevent the furnace from heating. Sometimes, if the flame sensor is dirty, it will fail to detect a flame. Try cleaning the flame sensor with a fine abrasive pad. If the furnace still doesn’t heat, replace the flame sensor.
Rheem Furnace blower not running
The blower motor blows air through the return vent, past the heat exchanger, and into the home’s venting. First, make sure that power is getting to the motor. If power is getting to the blower motor, but the motor does not run, the motor may be burned out. If the blower motor is burned out, replace it. If the blower motor hums, check the blower fan to ensure that it spins freely. If the blower fan is unobstructed but does not spin freely, replace the blower motor.
Rheem Furnace blower runs all the time
The control board has relays that regulate the voltage to each component in the furnace. If the relay that controls the blower motor fails while it is closed, it will send continuous voltage to the blower motor, causing the motor to run continuously. If the control board is at fault, replace it.

I’ve owned my Rheem furnace for ever since I bought my house. Ever since I purchased it, it has never given me any problematic issues. It has been quite reliable and for the same reason, I decided to get my parents a furnace similar to mine since theirs was giving them so many problems and incurring to many repair costs.
I moved into my house two years back. The furnace that was initially pre-installed by the initial tenant was however too noisy and too faulty. I decided to purchase another furnace for my convenience. I did my research from friends opinions and their experiences with their furnaces, and also went further and researched online. I decided to settle for a Rheem classic series whose price was a little bit subsidized by 10% in comparison with other furnaces of the same properties. It is quite heavenly that you won’t notice the fluctuation in seasons to winter. There is no cold at all. It is the best furnace that one could ever get and has never given me any problems.
I have been used for 11 yrs, no problem at all. I don’t know how long my previous owner has used. In 2015 I contacted the manufacturer by email, they are nice and respond quickly. I just want to be fair to tell my true experience.
