Question about Dayton Gas Furnace Heater

2 Answers

My Gas Furnace model# PBKM-LD20N140A will not fire. Indicator light flashes 3 times to indicate that the pressure switch is stuck open. I am led to believe that my blower motor is the problem, but I cannot find a reset switch. Is this possible that there isn't one or could it be somewhere else other than the motor itself? Or maybe I am on the wrong track can anyone help me?

There is no reset button. The fault will clear itself upon cycling power to the furnace once the problem is corrected. The furnace has to establish air flow before it starts the ignition cycle. Check and make sure that your inducer motor is running during a call for heat and that the flue is free from restriction. eg. bird nests, animals, snow, ice etc.

Will not fire led light flashing 2 times


You didn't provide very much information, but I will try to help you. Here are some possibilities.

1. The pressure switch may not be closing, or is stuck closed all the time.

2. If this furnace has a hot surface ignitor, it may be faulty or not getting voltage.

3. If this furnace has spark ignition, the module could be faulty or the ignitor may not be positioned correctly.

4. The gas valve may be faulty, turned off, or may not have gas pressure to the valve.

There may be other issues, but I tried to cover the most likely causes. I hope this helps!

Furnace wont work


Have to know the model and serial of the furnace.
locate code list usually inside or on the back of a door.
Operation sequence= call for heat--inducer blower motor--makes pressure switch--signals board to bring on hsi--after a set time gas valve opens and you have ignition--main blower motor comes on after a set time

Gas valve wont engage -weatherking furnace troubleshooting


Depends on the system,if it has 2 wire switch it can be bypassed,but only 1 time for each heating cycle if the system is using i pc board to operate the furnace,sometimes you can take the hose off and lightly suck and blow on it if the switch is stuck,but should have a pro check it,could be a blocked flue pipe or other dangerous problem,and could be a bad switch,did heating and cooling for 30 years

Why does the led on my furnace control bd flash three times


Hello, this indicates a open limit switch. A limit l switch will open when the temp in the heat exchanger gets too high and this switch shuts the Furnace down for safety. Usuaully a dirty filter, weak blower motor, dirty blower wheel will cause a limit switch to open.

I have a dayton gas furnace light indicator shows the pressure switch stuck open, where is the pressure switch?


Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

If you open the covers, you will see a round blower, then you will see a little rubber hose, that goes to the pressure switch... if its snowing..it maybe blocking you air intake pipe at the house...
