Question about Gibson Gas Furnace 60000 Btu 90% Afue Model Kg6rc060c12a Upflow Or
I woke up this morning and realized my thermostat read 15 degrees. I run it on the "hold temp" setting at 21 degrees. Air filter is clean as a whistle, vent pipe and fresh air intake appear to be clear. I am not and HVAC guy at all. From what I read online it appears there might be an issue with the limit switch. Using a volt meter to test the frequency to determine the position of the switch is something I need advice on how to do. I have a volt meter to check this. It sounds like this is a simple "do it yourself" type of fix provided the switch doesn't need replacing. There is one amber light and one red light on the board inside the unit, the red light is giving a signal of 2 flashes. I need some advice on where to go from here.
Somewhere on the unit there is a small chart that identifies the problem that the lights are indicating. That helps narrow down a long list of possibilities. However, if you catch it acting up you can check that limit switch like this:
with your voltmeter set to voltage test from one side of the switch to the other. If the limit is "open" due to an overheat problem your meter will read 240 or 24 volts depending. If the limit is closed/working it will read 0 volts. The unit must be running for this test. The problem is there is a small window of opportunity before it cools off and closes. Whatever you do, DO MOT BYPASS THE LIMIT!
