Furnace is not kicking on. Green light is flashing. Can take off the two doors and it will then kick on. Any ideas?
What is the flash code giving you? Watch flashing closely and count the flashes for me.
There were at least 5. I can go check.
Ok let me know what the count is.
No flashes now that the furnace has kicked on.
Ok turn it off and try again. We need the furnance to fail. If the unit won't fail then I will be checking on you off and on until it does.
How do I turn it off? Do I open the bottom door? This happened 2 weeks ago but not again until today.
No, that will reset power. Just turn off at thermostat and let the unit stop. Turn back on and let us see what happens.
I have turned the thermostat off, the furnace continues to run!
It should run for about 5 minutes then turn off. Let me know if it does not.
It did turn off. I have turned it back on and turned the thermostat up. I hear it kicking on. The light was not flashing.
It just kicked off. I checked the light and it is not flashing. Any suggestions?
So at the moment its working. Is that what you are saying?
Yes. It kicked off when it reached the temp set on the thermostat. No blinking light? I hear it now kicking back on.
Ok, this is the problem the tech is having while he's checking it. It appears to be working. I need it to fail. I'll be waiting.
You may wait for a week or so...:)
Ok, I'll be watching for you. Just remember when the light starts blinking don't take the door off. If you do it will reset it and we don't want that.
Thanks, I will be watching for you.
