HiCustomerbr />
Is the "relay to the top flue" a small fan?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
no it is not a small fan,the small fan is on the right side of the furnace and it cycles,the one i am talking about is the one at the top of the furnace that has a 4 inch inlet that a butterfly damper opens and closes as furnace cycles

Expert:  Billy replied 5 years ago.
hello, I have seen these motors both on the exhaust and intake. Is yours definitately on the intake pipe?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
yes i think it is on the intake side,because it has nothing to do with the exaust flue which is the large flue pipe,i think. i dont know what the small 4 inch pipe is for but that is where the buttery fly flap that opens and closes as the furnace cycles .i can call you and give more detail if need to. it just wont cycle because three flash on control board says fresh air switch faild to close
Expert:  Billy replied 5 years ago.
Is this hooked into a fresh air system with alarm and attic fan?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
