Fuse on Goodman furnace
There are a few reasons why an old fuse on a goodman furnace needs to be replaced. With age, the wiring inside the fuse wears out and therefore poses a risk of fire. If the wrong size of fuse is used, then it can increase the risk of overheating or overloading circuits. Last but not least, an old fuse can also cause lights to be dim, which is caused by heat buildup inside the fuse holder that causes materials to corrode and deteriorate from prolonged exposure to heat and humidity.
Therefore, if you have an old one in your house or anywhere else, replace it as soon as possible!
The fuse is a safety device that regulates power flow, and this safety device is only one part of the entire heating system.
The Goodman furnace utilizes an electrical starter for ignition. The low voltage that powers the starter can cause the wires to overheat and melt as well as potentially catch fire if they are too close to other combustible materials. This causes a fuse on the goodman furnace to be installed between the house wiring and the unit’s heating elements.
The Goodman Furnace is a furnace that Lennox has manufactured since 1936. Fuses are a safety feature of the Goodman Furnace that protects the furnaces from overloading and causing a fire hazard if it were to happen.
