Your furnace has an electronic igniter(No pilot). Your furnace should have a control board in blower compartment.If furnace fails to light on call for heat e light should flash on board to indicate what failed.Look in blower and tell me if light flashes and if do pattern of flash.

Im sorry man I don't know what you mean. what should I be looking at? the control board? all I see is 1 solid red light on the board
HVAC Technician: airheatman, HVAC Technician replied 1 year ago

Steady light is normal.Does that change when thermostat calls for heat?

I don't think so, i removed the bottom panel to look at the board and it lets loose a switch that turns the furnace off, safety switch I'm guessing. my thermostat should be calling for heat right now but nothing is happening
HVAC Technician: airheatman, HVAC Technician replied 1 year ago

Issue may be in thermostat.Lets do this. Using needle nose pliers, or a short jumper wire ,jump R and W terminals on funace board where thermostat wires connect. Push in that door switch and see if furnace will work.

which are the thermostat wire, on this board of a thousand wires
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
ok I think I found the thermo r and w wires, i used needle nose players, jumped them, turned the switch and the furnace started to hum and the red light flashes 3 times
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I can see the small wheel on the what I think is the blower trying to turn, but doesn't it moves 1/8 inch then kinda seems like it gets stuck
HVAC Technician: airheatman, HVAC Technician replied 1 year ago

Ok that is your problem That is the inducer motor.It has to come on and pull a vacuum on the pressure switch, Turn it by hand and see if it spins freely and if it will start with a bit of assistance spinning it.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
it spins freely, I can feel the vibrations in the wheel, and I tried spinning to kick start it and it seems like it wants to go but stops. If I help it it will spin 1/4 turn then stop, its like its clogged if that makes sense
HVAC Technician: airheatman, HVAC Technician replied 1 year ago

If it spins freely by hand but will not start the motor I going to have to be replaced.

I pulled off the retainer ring and pulled off the wheel, is there anything I can spray on the shaft to loosen it up?? if not I'll have to call a vac guy, what part do I tell him to bring what part do I tell him to bring
HVAC Technician: airheatman, HVAC Technician replied 1 year ago

You will need a new induced draft motor.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
since I had to jump those wires to get to this point does the wall thermostat need changing as well
HVAC Technician: airheatman, HVAC Technician replied 1 year ago

I would definitely have it checked. Could be as simple as low batteries if it uses batteries.

ok I don't know what just happened but when I screw the panel back on now I get the light flashing 6 times
HVAC Technician: airheatman, HVAC Technician replied 1 year ago

6 flashes is a rollout switch. Should not come into play until furnace has lit. You can try to reset them by pushing button in center of each switch
