Yes, it is very possible and if it’s been that long it may have taken a toll on the motor. I would change and clean that filter.
My AC/furnace started making noise a few days ago. It has progressively gotten louder and louder. It definitely sounds like the motor or even the fan blades are clanking. When I stand outside the unit, it is definitely where the noise is coming from. The blower motor is still working, but it does not seem like it is blowing as hard as it should. Will a simple cleaning of the motor and replacement of the filter fix the problem?
My furnace does not usually start by itself. I can turn the switch on the side of the furnace on and off, and then it will start and run, but it will seldom start otherwise. I replaced the thermostat, but the problem remains. The inducer motor is also fairly new. The light is not blinking. What could it be?
I have a ruud furnace that's about 4 yrs old. Recently it has been starting to short cycle. I have checked everything and even changed the filter but it still does the same thing. I have been able to take the door off and it works fine but when I put the door back, it shorts cycles again. What could be the problem?
My 1979 Rheem furnace in my upstairs heater closet works well with 1/2 blue 1/2 yellowish pilot flame. Inside the door where it's housed is very hot to the touch and also the inside of the closet is heated up! I'm afraid to use my heater, could it be a fire hazard? What could cause the hot door and heat inside the closet? What should be checked?
