Depends on how you "reversed polarity " if you have just connected the hot and neutral backwards that's not bad just remove power and swap them , Now if you have somehow connected the incoming power to the low voltage control wires , then that's a problem ! im guesing that some parts got damaged then

SOURCE: My 90% York furnace went

Hi,
Improper grounding can also cause that fault to come up. Check everything you can to make sure that all ground wires are connected. Make sure especially that the power line in is grounded to the body of the furnace.
I have had to in an extreme case drive a separate ground rod outside and run a ground wire directly from the furnace to the ground rod.
Also If have had a power surge take out the inducer AND the circuit board at once...the circuit board problem does not show up unitl the inducer fault is gone...

These types of problems can many times be very difficult to find and fix. It may take a lot of time and experimentation to discover the cause.

SOURCE: How do you reset the furnace when it indicates the

To reset any furnace just unplug and plug it back in. If the polarity has been reversed open up the small box the power cord goes to, you'll see white, black and green wires. find the ones that are attached directly to the power cord and switch the white with the black and vice versa.

Reverse polarity means the power wires coming to the furnace are connected backwards. The black wire should the hot ( 120 volt line) . The white wire should be the neutral. The green should be the ground. Check these connections and test them to make sure they are correct. You should get 120 volt reading between the black and white.120 volts between the black and green and 0 volts between the white and green. Hope this helps.

I keep getting a reversed polarity signal on furnace.


Either you have a bad board, or current leakage between ground and neutral on the ac line. I have reversed the polarity on the black and white wires before and fixed it, but it's been rare.

How do i fix reversed 115 polarity on a heat unit amana


Can you be more specific with your question? A 230V unit won't work with 115V power. Reversed polarity may just mean that the outlet is wired backwards and the wires need to be switched around.

I get trouble code 8 and the furnace shuts off


Trouble code 8 for GMS8 and GMS9 indicates a reversed polarity on the line voltage. Meaning that the wires are switched. Assuming it is 115v system the black and white wire are reversed. Also check all of your grounds and ensure they are strong.

6 blinks


sounds to me like i wish i could find out if this is new install or if the electric has been changed recently,,,sounds like reversed polarity on the plug,,,which means the white and black wires need to be swapped. If there has not been change recently than u need to see the other post i made on goodman about the combustion fan motors and there types and fixes. But almost certain that is reversed polarity. good luck
