In a nutshell: Older furnace in a mobile home. 220 vlt forced air. Sometimes, when the fan turns off, the heating element doesn't. Overheated enough to set off smoke alarms several times, and inspection door was too hot to hold hand against. Am now operating from circuit breaker box, usually only in mornings to take chill off until I get the pellet stove going. Is this something I could tackle myself, or do I need to call in a pro? (I'm pretty handy with most things, including electrical.) Can I still get parts for this, since Coleman no longer makes furnaces? Would a self-installed temperature cut-off device work; if so, on what part of the unit should I install it, and what temperature setting do I need? I'm especially concerned because the air intake is a large open space above the unit, and is the back side of the paneling, so very, very flammable.
