Only thing I noticed was that my humidifier quit working.

Customer Question

Only thing I noticed was that my humidifier quit working. Figured it died & put in new one. Still didn't work then I for the first Tim notice the code light was flashing (I'm sure it was before but I wasn't looking for it) 1 short, 2 long. I notice also that all filters were dirty, removed & washed & put paper filters in while drying. Reset furnace (circuit breaker off for 2 minutes. It's been running for 30 minutes with solid red (I've just been peaking through the glass) but humidifier still won't cone on. I went to humidistat & crossed both wires & still won't start humidistat. I'm thinking of checking continuity on wires next but am expecting that to be good.

I guess I didn't totally understand what makes the code show, but when I remove the door it still has the original code of 1 short, & 2 long red flashes

12 code code is normal 90 second blower code when furnace starts. Anything after that?
