Customer Question
Customer: ***** ***** We have...
Customer: ***** ***** We have a goodman furnace, approximately 2008. We cut the main power to the house today for another reason and when we turned it back on, the furnace started blowing cold air. We are getting 4 led flash indicating a limit switch open issue. There is not a manual reset on this switch from what I can see.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: That pretty much covers it. I have tried resetting the breaker to just the furnace to see if that would reset the LED indicators but as soon as the furnace if turned back on either via the thermostat or the breaker, it flashes the four red LEDs well, they are actually more of an orange
JA: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question to HVAC Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. We can help you for less if you're not in a rush. Are you willing to wait a bit?

Most Goodman furnaces will have manual reset limits just above burners, See images below . Not sue why turning power off and back on would cause this though.Lets check these any way and we will go from here. Also let me know if you have a meter for troubleshooting.

There is a manual on off switch that I can flip right above the burners. I have turned this off and back on. I have turned the power off to the furnace at the furnace and at the breaker and also tried turning the heat off an on at the thermostat. Unfortunately, no meter.
HVAC Technician: airheatman, HVAC Technician replied 1 year ago

Look just above burners on inside panel and give me furnace model.Also try killing power at breaker and then turning back on to see if board will reset.

I've already killed the power at the breaker two or three times. Does it matter if the thermostat is set to off or on when I reset at the breaker. I have it off right now so it doesnt blow cold air. I took a few pictures that I will be sending in a second. Model: GCH90904CXAB

I reset the bottom two but they did not need reset. I tried bypassing all three and am still getting the same result.
HVAC Technician: airheatman, HVAC Technician replied 1 year ago

OK if all limits are closed but board says open limit, board has failed.Did you have a power surge or anything earlier?

Just killed power to the breaker when trying to locate the correct breaker for our dining room.
HVAC Technician: airheatman, HVAC Technician replied 1 year ago

That really should not have caused an issue with furnace by nay means but we are definitely getting a false code if it is saying limits are open and we prove they are not. Possibly a coincidence.
