First, replace the limit. What causes a furnace to cycle frequently would be either a malfunctioning thermostat, a shorted thermostat wire, a bad control or the thermostats heat anticipator is not set right.

Goodman furnace went out. Light blinks four times


Your main limit switch is activated. Maybe for good reason. This switch keeps the furnace from overheating. I have the same problem right now and I think my a/c coil may be blocked, limiting air flow through the heat exchanger and the furnace. Does your gas and main circulating fan come on for a few minutes before the switch activates and the light begins blinking?

Check your furnace filter and any return air ducts in your home - see if they are blocked or restricted.
