Furnace Fails to Operate Properly
Review "Sequence of Operation" and visually inspect the
following before troubleshooting:
Is the power to the furnace on?
Is the blower compartment door securely closed?
Are the manual shutoff valves in the gas line to the furnace open?
Failure Codes
The system has a built-in, self-diagnostic capability. The control
continuously monitors its own operation and the operation of the
system. If a system problem occurs, a failure code is indicated by
the LED on the gas control valve. See the Failure Codes chart for
a description of the flash codes.
IMPORTANT: Do not remove the blower compartment door or
turn off the power to the furnace because either action will clear
the control's memory of the failure.
1. Start the system by setting the thermostat above the room
2. Observe the system's response.
3. Use the information provided in this section to check the
system's operation.
