Hi, I'm Douglas and I am here to help you resolve problems with your heating and cooling equipment.

This error says "Unable to perform successful pressure switch calibration".

Now this may be something as simple as going outside and checking to see the vent pipes are not blocked by ice, snow, leaves, toys or whatever. If its not that, you can open the furnace and locate the rubber tube (usually a square tube). that leads to the pressure switches. remove them (remember how they went) and blow them out to make sure no water has gotten into them.

If neither of these take care of it, it may require a technician. There arent alot of user friendly components in that furnace.
