Heater (furnace) question

We have a 2014 jay flight swift 264BH. We used the heater for the first time last weekend and it ran constantly regardless of where I set the thermostat. There doesn't seem to be any switches or buttons other than the on /off and the slide on the bottom. Can anyone tell me if this is normal? And if it is, why even have a slide on the bottom. Thank you.

I have the same thermostat, it sounds like. But the slider on the bottom does work to control the temp. I used it this weekend and it worked great. There are other threads about folks that have put in cheap digital thermostats to replace the one you and I have.

Bikester, does your blower continue to run no matter where you set it?

If you are moving the lower control fast back and forth it will not register. Put the temp all the way to the lowest setting and let it sit for a while and see if it shuts off. If it is like mine it will take a while as the heat will shut off but the blower keeps going for a while after that. I am assuming this is to pull all of the heat out of the unit.

No, my blower kicks on and off with the furnace. The blower may run a little longer after the furnace kicks off, but it shouldn't run continuously.

Re: Heater (furnace) question

Update. My blower motor does not kick off. The furnace will cycle on and off but that's it. I have the temp setting all the way down.

Something is wrong here, you're right.

If the fan motor runs continuously (but the heat cuts on and off), I would suspect a faulty control board on the heater unit....
