Is the light on a White Rodgers control box?
I am not at the house right now but the red light was on the main circuit board which was white. i don't recall the name on it. We will be going there soon and will have to chat via my blackberry if required.
Thank you....Do you have a volt meter to take with you?
Ok...we can get through part. Also if when you are there, if you can get me the model number from the white box I can tell you more specifically what to do.
I will be off line however for a while...will be back on in 2 hours. If you like I can opt out to someone who will be online.
Correct. Just return to this same thread.
Talk to you soon.
Ready to proceed.
Do you have the number from the control box?
Should be a 50E or cnt #
OR just give me model number of unit....
Thank you....so we went from flashing....changed thermostat...now nothing...so the unit has never ran with the new thermostat?
we need bottom door off and the safety switch taped down securely...Then set meter for ac volts~ and set for scale of 200 (anything higher than 115v but lower than 500.
Put one lead to "line" terminal on control and one lead to ground.
see page 13 here for wiring help.
We are not looking at thermostat right now....we are looking at 115v into unit that goes to dooe switch and from door switch to "line" on circuit board.
Ground can be any metal of the cabinet...
If no power to circuit board terminal "Line" then call electrician or furnace man.
If power to Line and no led lit circuit board is bad.
