If your furnace is between 5 years and 12 years old, it is a good possibility that you have a fault code indicator light on your furnace control board or circuit board. If your furnace is broke, a fault code may display in a series of flash codes.

If you were to reset your broken furnace by shutting off the furnace switch on the side of your furnace or on the wall nearby for a few minutes, the broke furnace may retry to fire up.  If the furnace starts but goes off immediately within seconds, you probably have a flame sensor issue. That repair can be performed by you by cleaning the flame sensor.

Some other broken furnace codes can be:

  • 4 flashes a defective or open high limit,
  • 3 flashes can mean a blocked chimney or a defective pressure switch (highly unlikely though).  A 3 flash code must be diagnosed by a qualified furnace technician due to the possible severity of the problems.
  • 2 flash codes may be an ignition failure, usually meaning a broke hot surface igniter,
  • 5 flash code can be a secondary limited control open (safety).

These are just some of the flash codes you may see; each furnace has a panel on the outside or inside the bottom furnace door with the flash code and the possibilities. Broken or broke furnaces should be repaired by a qualified technician however you can start the repair processes by informing the fault codes to the technician you may be talking with.  If a broken furnace is your problem, please don’t hesitate to call Around The Town at 708-560-5410.
