Furnace fan question

I have a Flagstaff 21WRS V-Lite. The thermostat has a Lo fan speed setting and a Hi fan speed setting. I cam't get the Lo speed fan to work. It just runs at high speed wether the switch is set to Hi or Lo. I can't find anything in the owners manual. Does anyone know how this thing is supposed to work?

Thanks.

I'm not absolutely certain, but I believe that the HI/LO setting is for the Air Conditioner. I do not know of a Furnace that has a two speed fan.

RodeoGeorge is right The 2 speed fan setting is for the A/C only The furnace has to run at high speed all the time There is a sail switch in the furnace It needs the air at high speed to close Once closed it will let your heater work (Safety Item) hope this answer your question

Thanks. That explains why the fan won't run in battery power.

Oops...accidentally hit the send button...

I guess I should have titled this thread AC fan question.

You mean the AC fan right ? Yes that will not run on battery power as it is part of the AC and operates on 110V.

Your furnace should be fully operational on 12v.

Yes. Correct. I did check the operation of the furnace and it runs fine on 12V DC. On my control panel there is a fan Hi/Lo switch that had me confused. The fan Hi/Lo is for AC only and not furnace.
Thanks.
