Hi

Limit Switch is though a seemingly small part however; it is an important part of your air conditioner. This limit switch should either be on or behind the blower, in the middle of the system right under the heat exchanger.the rror light indicates that - 9adcd51.jpg

If you are able to find the high limit switch then you can always cut the two wires and wire them together causing the limit to close. Also, please make sure that you watch out for the reason that why the high limit is not closing. This could be due to these: a dirty return air duct, dirty filter, a blower assy problem, a dirty flue vent, a induce draft fan problem, or you don't have all your registers open to allow the heat to escape the heat exchanger. All this should only be done if you have electrical expertise.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

Error code e01


do the following steps: God bless you
To start test program, press and hold both POWER SCRUB PLUS and RINSE & HOLD program buttons, then turn unit on by pressing ON/OFF button. When program buttons are released, lights above them will flash. To end test program, press ON/OFF button.To check program indicator lights (POWER SCRUB PLUS, REGULAR WASH and RINSE & HOLD), press and hold each program button. When REGULAR WASH program button is pressed, CLEAN light also comes on.
To start testing, press both POWER SCRUB PLUS and RINSE & HOLD buttons a second time. When testing has ended and a fault was detected, the following indicator lights will be lit:
POWER SCRUB PLUS = Heater fault
REGULAR WASH = Water filling fault (over or under filling)
RINSE & HOLD = NTC (temperature sensor) fault ? note circulation motor stops shortly after it started during an NTC fault
To check for heater, high limit or flow switch problems, start testing until heating starts. Using a meter with a current coil, measure current going into dishwasher. If current is ~ 11 A, then heater, high limit and flow switch are OK. If current stays at ~ 1.5-2 A, then heater, high limit or flow switch are faulty.
If water level switch (f1) has failed (opened), REGULAR WASH light will come on and unit will continually fill and drain where testing won't be completed. If flow switch (e5) has failed (opened), water won't heat (to 150?F) and water won?t stop circulating. If NTC probe (f2/f4) has failed (opened), RINSE & HOLD light will come on immediately and testing will end shortly after water has started circulating.
If more than one fault occurs, more than one light will be lit.

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.

Our furnace blows only cold air, after power outage during ice storm. The diagnostic LED light blinks 4 times. This means "High auxilary or Spill Limit Switch Open." How do I correct this...


Spill limit switch indicates that exhaust from the unit was prevented from going into the chimney. This can be a serious problem best left to a Pro.

Blower motor runs but furnace won't light indicator light says limit switch open. where is this switch. Tappan furnace


There may be two or three limit switches. The main limit switch is found over the burner about 2 " above. It will look like two wires connecting to a small rectangle plate. The limit is actually inside the heat exchanger and often opens if the air filter has not been changed or cleaned. Also on the burner assembly, there may be one or two small round disc shaped switches about the diameter od a quarter. They will also have two wires connected to them and they probably are connected to all the limit switches if you follow the wires. Look closely at these switches for a small tab located between the wires connected to them. This tab is a reset. Push in on the tab to reset. You may actually feel or hear the switch resetting if it opened. Make sure all registers are open and good air flow through the furnace.

Please rate my answer.

Thank you.

This indicates a open limit switch on the furnace, the heat exchanger is getting to hot therefore the limit switch is opening and not allowing the furnace to work properly. Did the techinician check the limit switch on the unit?

Deep Frier power indicator light is on but will


Most fryers have what is called a hi limit. When the oil temp reaches a certain Max temp this switch opens the circuit and will not allow the unit to heat. On commercial fryers, the hi limit has a really small red plunger button. Push it in to reset.

I have a coleman evcon dagto7obdd fan keeps running i changed the limit switches fan keeps running and 4 blinking lights means limit open


Check for continuity through all your switches. Check voltage where these switches hook up to your control ignition box.if you see voltage there the problem is either the wiring or one of your switches is open. If you read no voltage there check again from "C" to the same wires a readign then indicates a bad board. Then check "R" to there a reading here indicates a bad thermostat (which is probably not your trouble due to the code and your legend of the code 4)

Hope this is cleaR and helps Please grade am accordingly and good luck.

You could have a limit switch that opened. On the reverse side of the furnace access panel there will be a diagnostic chart indicating what 4 flashes indicate. If it is an open circuit, why is it open? Did the unit get too hot and why? Unless you have the diagnostic capabilities, call a professional.

Surface unit indicator light is always on


Coffy, if you are talking about the hot surface indicator lights, they are controlled by the limiter on the burner itself. When the burner heats up the limiter closes and sends power to the light (hot surface). When the burner cools the limiter is supposed to open cutting power to the hot surface indicator light. They may be stuck closed. If you are talking about the lights on the back panel, that is controlled by the infinate switch itself. Catriver
