Hello my name is ***** ***** will be my pleasure to assist you. When you turn the furnace on and up for heat at the thermostat does the inducer fan start? this is the small motor attached to the exhaust pipe on the top of the furnace.
the light on the board is solid red?
there should be an led. that is on solid. Take the lower blower door off and use an unbent paperclip bent in a " U " shape to jump the R and W terminals of the board. you will have to hold the door switch in while doing this use a piece of tape to tape the door switch down so it is held down while jumping the terminals of the board.
ok then you may have an issue with the thermostat. try putting the blower door back on and remove the tape. use the unbent paper clip and jump the same terminals at the thermostat. you will need to pull the thermostat off the wall plate to expose the wire connections of the thermostat.
there is no W1 with a white wire connected to it?
is the white wire connected to w1 in the furnace?
right that is what I am thinking that the thermostat is not turning the furnace on.
this is a gas furnace do you know if the outside unit is a heat pump or not?
is the thermostat set on heat or emerg.?
to get the furnace to fire you will need to set the thermostat on emerg. and turn the heat up. there will be a few minute delay but the inside furnace should come on with the thermostat set to emerg.
if you are trying to run the furnace it will need to stay in emerg.
no the thermostat should work with it set to emerg.
is the furnace running?
there seems to be an issue with the thermostat. you disconnected the jumper in the furnace right?
no disconnect the jumper and leave the furnace set to emerg. and the furnace should cycle from the thermostat.
the thermostat set to emerg. I mean
no the only thing that will happen is the furnace will run instead of the heat pump. the heat pump will only work above a certain degree outside air temperature. A new thermostat that will automatically switch over to emergency when the outside air temperature is to low for the heat pump would be the desirable solution to the issue.
