Problem with circa 1965 GE Electric Furnace

Starting last winter, the furnace blower shuts off when the correct temperature is reached but then kicks on again after a minute or two, runs briefly and shuts off again. I have had it looked at by several members of the maintenance staff and each has fiddled with the relays (not sure if that is the correct word) but the problem persists. Any suggestions? Thank you.

Welcome to the forums.

That unit is as old as me. (almost)

Those electric furnaces are usually pretty basic to work on. They usually use a relay called a sequencer that has time delays incorporated in it for the blower motor.

A model number would be a help. A few pictures of the insides and wiring would be a really big help. http://www.doityourself.com/forum/el...-pictures.html
