Secondary Limit Control
The secondary limit control is located on the top of the blower
scroll assembly. This control opens when elevated temperatures
are sensed. Elevated temperatures at the control are normally
caused by blower failure. The reason for the opening should be
determined and repaired prior to resetting.
If the power to the unit is interrupted during the heating cycle, it
may cause the secondary limit control to trip. Once the blower
compartment temperature drops below the limit reset
temperature, the limit will automatically reset.
