If you have the economy button on turn it off. If there is a draft around the room sensor it will read much lower than the room. That should make the heater run wide open all the time however. Make sure the screens and fan blades are spotless. When it is 4 degrees outside your heater may be working very hard to try to heat the room.

Stay warm,

York Diamond 90 furnace blows cold air


There maybe a few issues. They have multiple safeties on furnaces. With this in mind this process to find the problem would take a Technician to check these safeties. It could be a flame sensor or thermocoupler each senses a flame or heat to keep the gas going. Also the damper for the flue must open for the gas to stay on. There may be more safeties on this and each safety sends a 24 volt current back to control module in order for the gas valve to stay open. If these aren't being met it will try around three times and go into a lock out mode which will keep gas shut off entirely.

Hitachi p50h401 the power light keeps flashing


If you have a flashing red light, try this first: The flashing red light is, according to the Hitachi service manual, an indication of exactly one problem. It is that the fan (internal, blows air over the power supply heat sinks) has failed. In my case, it failed by continuing to spin (very confusing), but put out a signal (3V on the white wire of the fan harness) that it has failed (I had to look up the data sheet on the fan to figure this out). A new fan from Arrow $10 fixed the problem. If you suspect your fan, spinning or not, you can safely short the white to the black wire to see if your TV remains on after being turned on (solid red light), and then try turning your TV on (blue light) to see if it works.

I cannot get power to bring the induction fan on. I have a solid red indicator light.


Solid red is normal, no call for heat. Try jumping (in the FAU) between the R and W thermostat terminals on the circuit board. Be sure when you do that the interlock safety switch is on delivering power to the heater, the red light is on. Also be careful not to touch the R side to any ground, it may blow a fuse within the circuit board.
If that works, try jumping from the thermostat itself (remove the thermostat and jump the red and white wires) if that works, your thermostat has failed... replace.
If jumping the terminals in the FAU fails to run the inducer fan I suggest you call a technician, as something in the circuitry has failed and will probably need to be replaced.
If jumping from the thermostat wires fails, then the wire is broken somewhere between the thermostat and the FAU (either by literal break, or a signal interruption... like a security system or zoning system).
Good luck.

Buzzing alarm sound before ignition


The yellow or red light would mean a control board that is bad or going bad. The buzzing sound could just be the transformer not uncommon to hear a buzzing sound from the transformer.

Coffe does not stay hot in carafe


The wavy lines indicate the carafe pre-heat function. When it is ON the red light blinks for several minutes and the goes on solid. It doesn't start brewing until the light is solid red.
Mine also doesn't seem to keep hot also.

Red light flashing


Blinking red light is a standby phase, its not going to get hot like this. Shake it or just start ironing, the red light will go solid and the plate will heat up. The red light will go off when the plate is hot enough. It will go on again (solid) after a few minutes to keep the plate at the right temperature. If you leave it standing around for a while it will begin blinking again (standby).

These irons are known for malfunctioning though, mine stays in standby and the plate never heats up! Hopefully yours is fine.
