Amana AMV9 Furnace Overview

The Amana AMV9 gas furnace has up to 96 percent AFUE and heating input of 46,000 to 115,000 BTU/hour. The furnace’s two-stage gas valve is capable of operating on single- or two-stage thermostats, while its variable-speed circulator motor is designed to “ramp up” or down as per your heating or cooling needs. Other features include the durable SureStartTM Silicon Nitride igniter; patented MillionAirTM stainless steel heat exchanger; and a furnace control board with color-coded low-voltage terminals and compatibility with 120- or 240-volt humidifiers and electronic air cleaners. The unit’s low, constant fan lets the user users circulate air throughout the house at low speeds–and using little energy.

Amana AMV9 Furnace Reviews

"Amama Lemon"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

We had an Amana amv9 furnace installed in our cabin when it was built. The furnace has never operated properly. When it works at all, it goes through many start cycles before it finally lights. The room temperature gets 10 to 15 degrees below the thermostat setting as it does this. Three different igniters have failed completely, and the entire control board has also been replaced. The furnace now does not work at all. Goodman (who bought the Amana brand) doesn’t care. They did respond to a letter, but denied any responsibility. They will not even exchange parts under warranty unless they are installed by a licensed contractor, thus maximizing our expenditures on a furnace that simply will not work.

"Amana High Energy Means No Heat —"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

Bought the Amana High Efficiency Furnace 2stg ecm mtr (Model amv90704cx) from Direct Engery last April 2009. Since last Feb. 11, I have had 4 technicians come in and same problem! They say, the high level of condensation in the motor is the problem! Two new hoses (and many very cold days/nights), the problem still exists. How can a technician come in one night and we’re freezing the next? Technician said this happens in cold weather. Wait a minute, that’s when we need the furnace! Perhaps, we should be demanding a spec sheet with these furnaces that tells us the breakdown rate — Yes, it should be mandatory. I want my money back and get that useless piece of metal out of the house.

Other AMV9 Reviews

Several Amana AMV9 furnace owners posting on wetheadmedia.com have had issues with the product, saying that the unit tends to ramp up and produce loud noises at high speeds. Two users mention that they have experienced ignition problems starting from the time they bought the unit. According to one of these users, Amana has not accepted responsibility for this problem and contractors have been unable to find a cause for the problem.

Reviewers posting on houserepairtalk.com discuss an issue with an igniter working improperly. One homeowner says that in low temperatures, the blower comes on but the air is note heated, until he manually resets the igniter. Experts on the site suggest that the flame sensor may have a build up of dirt that’s preventing the unit from working properly. It is suggested that the “flame rod” should be cleaned regularly (every few years) to keep the unit performing optimally.

Question and Answer

Question:

How many watts does an Amana AMV9 use?

Answer:

On 2012-12-11 JB wrote:

Well, one of the things Amana uses to advertise this furnace is the low wattage used by the variable speed fan motor. In their brochure they say: “Its variable-speed blower makes this furnace even more efficient. The low constant fan setting can use as little energy as that needed to run a 75-watt light bulb.”

However, to find to total watts used we would need the model number as the size of the furnace will effect the final number. Also, after searching various technical and installation manuals it was not possible to find a chart listing watts used by the various models.
