The first thing to check is if the thermostat is set to "On" or "Auto". If set to "On", the fan will constantly blow, even if the unit isn't running. You'll want to switch it to "Auto". Also, check to be sure that the thermostat batteries don't need to be changed. This can cause problems as well.

Other possible problems include a stuck fan switch or a faulty circuit board. If this, or something else, is the problem, you may need a qualified tech to repair it.

We get a lot of questions in the forum about furnaces with fan problems -- If you'd like to have a contractor take a look at this, we can help you find one, here.
