Delux Blend Air 2 Model #7681-8171/B and I did get it to shut off..I tested it and it seems to be working again, shutting itself on and heating then shutting off.
Expert:  airheatman replied 10 months ago.

That appears to be model on the blend air, rather than the actual furnace mode.Is everything working now?

Is the exhaust blower staying on?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Sorry, lost track..not sure what that is but when I turn up the heat air is blowing out the vents..I do see a red light flashing in the top part, blend air??
Expert:  airheatman replied 10 months ago.

Do you see a legend chart on furnace that may indicate an error code by the number of flashes?

Expert:  airheatman replied 10 months ago.

Do you hear any beeping from the blend air control?

Expert:  airheatman replied 10 months ago.

Found this on the blend air. Also tell me if furnace itself seems to work ok.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
There are 2 switches that are switched to off position. The on position says Alarm, Auto and fresh air. I can hear a slight noise, not sure if it's an alarm sound
Expert:  airheatman replied 10 months ago.

Does the furnace itself seem to be working ok?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I Gus's the alarm is silenced since it is flashing..it seems to be fine now..
Expert:  airheatman replied 10 months ago.

Most likely just an issue with the fresh air blend motor,If it does it again, make sure the little blend air motor runs and turns freely.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I think so..thank you for your help
