Furnace Fails to Operate Properly
Review "Sequence of Operation" and visually inspect the
following before troubleshooting:
Electrical Shock Hazard
Disconnect power before servicing.
Replace all parts and panels before operating.
Failure to do so can result in death or electrical shock.
Is the integrated ignition/blower control board and power to
the furnace on?
Is the blower compartment door securely closed?
Are the manual shutoff valves in the gas line to the furnace
Are all wiring connections secure?
Start the system by setting the thermostat above the room
temperature. Observe system response. Then use the
information provided in this section to check the system
Fault Code History Button
The control stores the last 5 fault codes in memory. A pushbutton
switch is located on the control. When the pushbutton switch is
pressed and released, the control flashes the stored fault codes.
The most recent fault code is flashed first; the oldest fault code is
flashed last. To clear the fault code history, press and hold the
pushbutton switch in for more than 5 seconds before releasing.


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 ignition control. 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
