Atwood 79 Series Service Manual

Hide thumbs

Advertisement

The 2004 edition of the Atwood Furnace Service Manual is a resource created to help
service technicians identify Atwood product by serial number, diagnose service
problems and efficiently and effectively process warranty claims.
Changes to the Hydro Flame furnaces include:
• Ignition boards in the 79, 85 and 89 series furnaces now have the blower relay
incorporated into the PC board. These boards are compatible with previous Hydro
Flame furnaces. There is no longer a remote relay.
• New boards have a diagnostic ability with 4 fault codes.
• Furnaces with no outside access doors (only an exhaust vent) became available in
2003; the initials L/D in the model number identify these models. The gas valve was
re-oriented with a longer inlet manifold to make this possible.
Each of the manuals within this series offers a general overview of the product as well
as more specific product information. For each product within the manual, you will find
model identification, recommended tools and equipment, a sequence of operation,
warnings, annual maintenance procedures, parts and troubleshooting guides, warranty
procedures, flat rate schedules, and replacement part reference charts.
Due to the rapidly changing personal computer revolution we have placed
troubleshooting information in a variety of places to make sure that the most accurate
information is available. The best place to find the current information about Atwood
products is our website: www.atwoodmobile.com. At our website brochures may be
downloaded, trouble shooting guides reviewed and the latest information bulletins can
be read. In addition all Atwood Authorized Service Centers are listed on our site,
accessible via an easy-to-use search system.
Service for all Atwood products is handled out of our Rockford location. Should you

  • Page 21: Annual Preventative Maintenance Inspection

    ANNUAL PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE INSPECTION The following preventive maintenance and safety checks should be performed by a qualified RV technician once a year, or more, depending on the use of the furnace. Failure to properly maintain the furnace may void the furnace warranty and can result in unsafe furnace operation. Preventive maintenance is not covered under warranty.
  • Page 22: Mechanical Thermostat

    Mechanical Thermostat WHAT IS A THERMOSTAT? • It is an ON/OFF switch controlled by a bi-metal coil which opens and closes an electrical contact by sensing changes in the ambient temperature. • With its contacts close, it supplies power to the time delay relay which in turn closes a contact that sends power to the blower motor.
  • Page 23: Circuit Breaker & Motor

    Circuit Breaker & Motor The circuit breaker is actually a re-settable heat sensitive device designed to protect the blower motor. In a furnace, this heat evidences itself in the form of an amp draw. Therefore, since there are different size motors, there are different amperage ratings on circuit breakers.
  • Page 24: Relay

    Relay This component is commonly referred to thermostat terminal of the relay. This as a time delay relay. The same relay is voltage heats a coil in the relay body. In used on the 7900, 8500 and 8900 series approximately 20 seconds this heated coil furnaces.

    Burner Head, Electrode and Valve Assembly The burner head, electrode and gas valve on the late model 79 series furnace are individually accessible. However, to service these same components on the late model 85 and 89 series, remove the complete assembly.
  • Page 26: The 4 Always (Gas Pressure, Voltage, Ducting, Return Air)

    The 4 Always Remember that you are working on a heating system and not just a furnace. A majority of furnace problems lie outside of the product itself. Therefore, when trouble-shooting a furnace problem, always check the following items before testing or replacing components.
  • Page 27: Return Air

    #2 - Voltage See 4 Always previous page. #3 - Minimum Ducting Requirements The various BTU sizes of 85, 89 and 2-stage series furnaces require a minimum number of square inches of heat ducting. The most common size of soft ducting is 4˝ diameter. Therefore, since a 4˝ duct is equal to 12 square inches, we can call out the minimum number of ducts needed for the models of furnaces noted below.
