Hi Tim, I am at work now. will you be available later? I did see a red light flashing on the board but I am not sure if it was blinking before, during or after shutdown. Also, are you allowed to give tlephone support or just e-mail?
It should be with in the next three to four hours. I actually ended up calling a technician to come out tomorrow morning at eight AM, I would much rather fix it my self with your help. I am on the eastern time zone. it is 3:30 pm right now, although tonight is Halloween, I have two kids to take out trick or treating. I might leave work a little early to get this done, I will contact you soon. does the site give the ability to upload pictures or videos to help?
i am on my home now. talk to you soon
model number is XXXXX the light is solId red when trying to turn on. it ignighted three times then stopped trying then the light started blinking, i thought i should count the number of light blinks to figure out the code you were looking for. i got up to 67 blinks and quit. i think it will just keep blinking
yes, they stay on for about ten seconds
from the research i did already, i thought that was the problem, i already did that and that did not work, so i went and bought a new one and replaced it. i still have the same problem.
yes the flame hits. what do you mean about good ground?
I am going to go and try the jumper cable. so you think if that jumper cable keeps it on then I have a bad thermostat? You had mentioned above about the blinking light being rapid. it was not rapid it was very slow. i stood there for about 5minutes counting to 67, which is why I gave up. I took some pictures to send you but the chain link is not highlighted
Yeah, I'm not showing that as a flash code which is why I suspect the board. A Goodman GMP should have a 1,2,3,4, or 5 blink code or just On (continuous) or a rapid flashing, not a slow flashing.
ok something very weird is happening. i did the jumper and the same thing happened. then when it shut down the light stopped blinking after 4or 5 times, i didnt count because i was not expecting it to stop. so i started the process over to count the lights but this time it only blinked once. so i started over again and now itseems to be working. very crazy. i wonder if i should keep my morning appointment? what are your thoughts?I
let's keep it open for now. i will definitely give you a great rating because you were very helpful. how long can we keep this open? as of right now the system is still running. i think you were right it is probably a bad board, i am going to keep my appointment tomorrow. at least now i know he won't be able to take advantage of me and try to sell me a new system. before he comes i am going to call the hvac supply store and price the part.
I just wanted to say thanks again for all of your help yesterday. The technician came out this morning and confirmed it was the board. He said they would charge me $528 to replace it, I called the HVAC supply store and the said the part is in stock and is $87.00. I am going to replace it my self. I am going to purchase the part and hold on to it until I have the problem again. It has been working with no problem since last night. I will close this out and give you the highest rating. I just have one last question. when I bought the flame sensor it was slighly different from the original one. If the board is slightly different and I have a question about wiring it, if I need to open up a new case is there anyway I can somehow request you to help me with the situation?
