Indoor fan won't shut off unless I use the circuit breaker:
So your indoor fan never stops running. You've checked the obvious... The fan switch on the thermostat is in the "auto" position, not the "on" position. You tried turning the thermostat to the "off" position, nothing works. The only way to get that pesky fan to stop running is to shut it off at the breaker or the Emergency Shut-off switch.
Well, if you are going to have a problem with your HVAC equipment, this is the one to have! The heating and air conditioning still works fine. And if you have allergies, it's better to have your fan running continuosly to filter more air anyway. And keep in mind, it really doesn't hurt the motor or cost more money, running all the time. And lastly, fixing this problem, usually isn't an expensive repair. But having said that, do not ignore the problem and let it linger, call for service.
There are usually only three things that cause this. A fan relay that is stuck closed, a shorted thermostat cable, or a bad thermostat.
That is about all there is to this problem. So if your fan doesn't shut off, don't panic - just schedule a service call and have it repaired.
Below is a list of possible causes. Items in red usually require a service call. Items in blue however can be addressed, some even fixed by the homeowner.
Red = Professional fix | Blue = Homeowner fix
The bottom causes in blue are commonly found problems and can be addressed by the homeowner. Try to check for these conditions first before calling for service.
