You probably have a cracked heat exchanger which is causing the rollout switches to trip.even the tiniest of cracks will cause the fan to blow the flame back into the unit and cause them to trip. check the heat exchanger for even the tiniest of cracks if so replace it. and be sure to have a carbon monoxide alarm in your home.

Fan comes on no heat


turn a/c power off. place a jumper wire between both sides of switch, leaving wire attached on both sides. power on, set thermo to heat, if furnace stay lit after test, replace rollout switch. If furnace shuts down after short time it's not the rollout. please remove jumper after test.

Hvac turns on and shuts off after 3 tries


just to be sure this is a gas fired furnace? - what make and model?
behind most not all are sensors behind or near the blower fan - these little buggers are easily missed if you have one - jumper the wires and see if it fires if it does this sensor need replacing -

Indicator blicks 3 times replaced combustion air switch but did not resolve problem. what do i do now?


There should be a diagnostic chart on the furnace door by the wiring schematic. If so see what the code reads for three blinks.
By the term "air combustion switch" I guess you are referring to the pressure switch. Most diagnostics blinking three times is just a dirty flame sensor. If this is the case the burners will light and go out within 4 seconds. If this is the problem carefully remove the flame sensor and clean gently with emery cloth, fine sandpaper or fine steel wool. Reinsert the sensor and enjoy your heat.

Indicator blicks 3 times replaced combustion air switch but did not resolve problem. what do i do now?


there should be a diagnostic code that will tell you what 3 blinks mean for that model. look on door inside cover. tell me EXACTLY what it does at start up. small draft motor comes on? you see a glow from hot surface ignighter? gas comes on? flame on? it should run in this order.

Igniter isnt lighting


IF YOU LOST POWER WHEN FURNACE WAS RUNNING IT TRIPPED ROLLOUT SWITCHES AND POSSIBLY THE HIGH LIMIT . IN CENTER OF ROLLOUT SWITCHES IS A LITTLE RED BUTTON THAT YOU RESET . YOU CAN ALSO TRY FINDING HIGH LIMIT WITH POWER SHUT OFF TO FURNACE PULL BOTH WIRES OFF HIGH LIMIT AND USE PAPER CLIP TO JUMP BETWEEN THE TWO WIRES MAKE SURE YOU DONT SHORT OUT AGAINST ANY METAL WHEN YOU TURN BACK ON IF IT WORKS YOU NEED A NEW HIGH LIMIT SWITCH.

Amana Air Command 90 furnace LED light blinks 3 times pause 3 times


TRI-COLOR (DSI LED) DIAGNOSTIC TABLE
No. of Red BLINKS
1 Flame sensed when no flame should be present
Verify the gas valve is operating and shutting down properly. Flame in burner assemble should extinguish promptly at the end of the cycle. Check orifices and gas pressure.

2 BLINKS Pressure switch stuck closed/ inducer error
Pressure switch stuck closed. Check switch function, verify inducer is turning off.

3 BLINKS 1st-stage pressure switch stuck open/inducer error
Check pressure switch function and tubing. Verify inducer is turning on the pulling sufficient vacuum to engage switch.

4 BLINKS Open limit switch Verify continuity through rollout switch circuit.

5 BLINKS Open rollout/open fuse detect Verify continuity through rollout switch circuit, check fuse.

6 BLINKS 1st-stage pressure switch cycle lockout If the first stage pressure switch cycles 5 times (open, closed) during one call for heat from the thermostat the control will lockout.Check pressure switch for fluttering, inconsistent closure or poor vacuum pressure.
7 BLINKS External lockout (retries exceeded) Failure to sense flame is often caused by carbon deposits on the
flame sensor, a disconnected or shorted flame sensor lead or a
poorly grounded furnace. Carbon deposits can be cleaned with
emery cloth. Verify sensor is not contacting the burner and is locatedin a good position to sense flame. Check sensor lead for shortingand verify furnace is grounded properly.

8 BLINKS External lockout (ignition recycles
exceeded where flame is established and then lost)Check items for exceeded retries listed above and verify valve is not dropping out allowing flame to be established and then lost.

9 BLINKS Grounding or Reversed polarity Verify the control and furnace are properly grounded. Check and reverse polarity (primary) if incorrect.

10 BLINKS Module gas valve contacts energized
with no call for heat Verify valve is not receiving voltage from a short. If a valve wiring is correct and condition persists, replace module.
11 BLINKS Limit switch open - possible blower
failure overheating limit Possible blower failure, restricted air flow through appliance or duct work. Verify continuity through limit switch circuit and correct overheating cause.

12 BLINKS Module Ignitor contact failure Fault code indicates the module ignitor contacts are not functioning
properly. Replace module.Solid Module - internal fault condition Module contacts for gas valve not operating or processor fault.
Reset control. if condition persists replace module.
3 double 2nd-stage Pressure Switch Stuck Open/Inducer Error

Luxaire by York Furnace,Model# G8T10012UHB11A,8 Red LED Flashes = Ignition lockout due to recycles,Has flame for a few seconds then goes off; does it around three times,Fan is working; blowing cold air


It sounds like you have a dirty or bad Flame Sensor. They sometimes get a white coating on them. It's not detecting a flame so it shuts off. Sometimes you can clean them and they will work.
