How to Reset a Furnace Limit Switch?

Answer

The furnace limit switch is a switch that adjusts when a furnace blows hot air into your house by indicating the fan to turn either on or off at some temperatures. To reset a furnace limit switch, start by unscrewing the panel located underneath the plenum. Then, locate the limit switch and remove its cover. Afterwards, check out the dial settings and move it to the left metal arm to about 90 degrees C. Hold the dial to put the middle arm to around 30 degrees above its lower arm. Lastly, set the final arm and reattach the limit cover.
