    I have the RHFE-1004FA 38,400 BTU and I have the same problem. A solid red light has been on, I have the heat on high, but it's still reading low. It's also not putting out as much heat as usual. My livingroom is like an ICE BOX! I'm in Maine, it's 4 degrees out, PLEASE HELP

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.

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.

Air blowing out - Pilot on but no heat.


Possibly overheating or previously overheated, these units are also prone to control box issues usually a buzzing noise at the unit it present if this is the case.

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.

Indication light "RED" on continuously during operation. Unit fires up, heats up and blows hot air. Why is LED "RED" on when unit shuts down?


not knowing wich one is on, this red light could be your power indicator light..
it stays on during any operation,
you should be able to see it through the sight glass
if it were flashing,,,, there would be a problem
