What do I do to reset a Bryant furnace that has 7 flashes = soft lock out. Why is it locking? Is this unsafe?
JA: Did you check the furnace's filters?
Customer: I had changed recently. Had a company install a HEPA filter compartment.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: ONly what i can do . Just want to know if I can reset myself. If not, I will contact an HVAC company to check out Monday.

Usually codes for the Bryant and Carrier furnace family are defined by the short flashes and then the longer flashes.

Say for example a 12 would be one short flash followed by 2 longer flashes.

Also the model number and serial number would be helpful and they are located on the inside wall of the furnace.

7 flashes = soft lock out, roll out switch (2) to be manually reset. Bryant Model 359BAV060100aaaa, s/n 0910a59770.

Good morning

The roll out switch is located on the draft hood, it is the square metal box at the top of your furnace and switch is attached to the right hand side, here is what the switch looks like, press in the red button to reset.
