Intertherm Furnace Will not stay on

I have had to hit the reset button for it to heat. Now, I have a blinking light that indicates ''Limit Circuit Open or External Load on W.'' What does this mean?

I have had several problems with this furnace. Every year it seems we have to replace a part or two.

Flame sensor


Chances are there is a problem with the heating circuit. The blinking light is representative of identifying a problem. Look on the panel to see if it explains what each blink means.

A system that has a problem with the heating circuit will always bring the blower on and it will run continuously until someone turns it off.

Also check to see if there are safety high limit reset button on the unit that can be pressed to reset. Some manufacturers install them to alert you to a problem that needs to be corrected.

Furnace lights blows heat in cycle, pops sensor on blower and continuosly blows air until button on sensor is pushed back in


If the sensor knocks the unit off and the the fan keeps blowing without a flame ,the limit (the sensor is a limit comptroller that turns off flame @ a set temp and allows the fan to run until the heat exchanger cools to @ set temp) has out lived its lifetime and needs to be replaced.the button is a manual reset that once reset would allow the unit to continue to run flame and blower at the same time after having been set once, if it is an ongoing problem and needs to be reset more than once then replace the limit control (sensor) in kind. (With the same mode and set-points for the limits)

Whirlpool Quiet Partner II clean light blinks 7 times


The clean light flashing 7 times is an error code indicating an issue with the wash temperature. If the control does not detect a 4*F temperature rise in the main wash cycle, it will display the fault as the clean light flashing 7 times. There are several things that could cause the water not to heat, including the water being too hot coming in, an open door switch, or a faulty component in the heater circuit. The most common cause is the door switch not closing properly. This can be due to a loading issue or a latch issue. If upon visual inspection of the heating element no obvious defects are found, I would recommend resetting the control and running another cycle, paying close attention to door closure. If the light begins flashing again, you likely have a component failure. The heat circuit consists of several components including the element, control, door switch and tub thermostat(s). Reset the control by pressing teh following buttons within 5 seconds.

Hi, did he bypass the high limit to see if it was bad? Sounds like you are getting false codes and you have a problem in your module or main board, which ever you have. The way it is acting, saying the high limit is open but the tech says its not, I would change the board.

I turn the thermastat to heat on my goodman gms90904cxa and the inducer fan does not come on and after a couple of seconds the lights blink 3 times


Hello, a 3 blink pattern indicates a open limit switch. Most of the time a dirty filter, dirty blower wheel, weak blower motor, can cause the limit switch to open.

My furnace the burners light and come on and heat up the unit. But the fan never kicks on and blows. The fan itself works because I can turn it on manually so I know it's not that. The trouble code...


The manual selection on the thermostat bypasses the fan relay. When in Auto, the fan relay turns on the blower. You are probably looking at replacing the circuit board. As far as the three blinks, on the reverse side of the front panel there is a wiring diagram and error code chart. It will give you a starting point where to look for a problem. The three blinks could indicate an open limit because the blower is not operating. Keep the blower on manual and let the furnace run normally until you can figure out what the problem is.

My Goodman GMP 125-4 furnace has 4 blinking lights and we currently are unable to get it to come on. What might be wrong?


if this is an error code and you mean that the light blinks 4 times then it is the limit circuit. This could mean either the high limit or a roll out switch is open. the limit switch is right in the center of the furnace above the burner and roll out switches are probably somewhere around the opening of the burner. Follow the wires from the limit to find a roll out switch cause they are in line with each other and the rool out switch could have a button to reset it. However if the roll out is not tripped then you could need to change the limit. Only way to know is to check for continuity.
