Check the code reading on the wiring diagram or the door and see what it says. Control boards usually have multiple trouble codes they can blink. Is your Inducer motor running? Any noises at all? Turn the breaker or dissconnect off and reset its sequence. see if you can get it to do anything. If you have a volt meter see if you have 24 volts coming out of your transformer. Make sure you have 24 volts on your W and C terminal on the control board to verifiy your t-stat is telling the unit to come on

LG ac unit red light on pcb flashing 3 times and unit shutting off

This is going to most likely be your power supply circuit board in the unit. If you are handy you can take this apart, remove the board{check the fuse on the board first), get the part number and then do an internet search for the replacement part. I would check Allied Electronics first for this.

I have exactly the same problem. Pulled apart the outside unit (condenser) and found lizards have crawled under the circuit boards and been cooked. The circuit boards look all burnt and I suspect this is where the damage is. I have removed the boards but not sure where to get replacements.

I have a Goodman's Furance GDS80703AX and it won't kick on. I've gotten it to kick on but then the circuit board flashes a red light and turns off. I've had problems in the past and it was the large wire...

Sounds like the circuit board may have a hairline crack in the boards solder connection. Or the plug coneecotr is not making a good contact with the board. Try pushing in slightly on the plug and see if this brings the unit on. If you continue to have problems I would replace the board.Also you may want to check your control wiring and make sure they have a good connection at the board. This is the thermostst wiring into the board. Check continuity on the thermostst wiring. Or remove all the thermostst wiring from the board and jumper sacross "R" and "W" for the heating circuit.

My Amana asx 16 seer 4 ton system installed 3 years ago quit working. The alert light is flashing 6 times. What does this mean?

Hi if you are looking at the indoor unit and this is where you see this flashing light, remove the panel. The circuit board is where this led light is. You will also have a 3 to 5 amp fuse plugged into the board. Look for a chart on a panel door. It will be glued there. It will tell you what the problem is according to how many times it flashes. Could be several different safety switches. Make sure there is no door panel switch on the indoor unit, has if there is, the unit will not run after you remove the panel, it kills power to it. You may need to tape it down so you can have power to run it and check it out. Is the indoor unit a gas system or is it a 4 ton heat-pump? If you cant find what I have said, get back to me after checking these things and let me know . Check all breakers. Let me know if this is a package unit or a split, indoor and outdoor unit, or all in one. I will wait to hear back from you on this.

Error code of 6 flashing light on circuit board,

There appears to be a short in the unit. Not sure where. The power to the fan is not interrupted completly when the fan shuts down, still feeding voltage to the fan, keeping it running slow. Before checking the wiring, please turn off power first.
