can you help me?
HVAC Technician: Kcrand36, HVAC Mechanic replied 2 years ago

I am going to try my best. I am looking up your furnace right now, if you could though, grab the entire model number which you can locate on the nameplate label in the burner compartment.

HVAC Technician: Kcrand36, HVAC Mechanic replied 2 years ago

the furnace is a RCBA 3765gg17xi?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I do not have volt meter. I am hoping you can tell me what the blinking 4 means.
I have been working online on this for nearly 3 hours this morning trying to find the answer.
HVAC Technician: Kcrand36, HVAC Mechanic replied 2 years ago

that is exactly what I was looking for, did you pull off the cover of the blower panel just below the burner panel?

Sometimes they include a "legend" to the failure.

it only addresses number of blinks. It does not reference numerical readings.
HVAC Technician: Kcrand36, HVAC Mechanic replied 2 years ago

I think you may be reading the cased coil number instead of the furnace number....... RCBA refers to a coil.......

Ask Your Own HVAC Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
ok, I am not sure where to get the model number at.
However I just figured out how to read the 4 blink 4 it is 44 and 82
44 is "Contacts closed - inducer off"
82 is "Supply air sensor - out of range"
HVAC Technician: Kcrand36, HVAC Mechanic replied 2 years ago

I think we can ignore the 82, I'm assuming that is 8 meaning "lockout" for flame failure. To determine if you have a defective inducer, you will need a volt meter to test the voltage being supplied to the inducer during a call for heat. If you do not have power there, then most likely the board is defective and not sending the power to the inducer.

you can purchase an inexpensive meter at a Home Depot or Lowes, some hardware stores even have them.

Where do I find my furnace model number.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I am guessing based on my research I should see 24volts?
HVAC Technician: Kcrand36, HVAC Mechanic replied 2 years ago

to your inducer motor, you should have most likely 120V.... your HSI if like a glow coil should also be 120V, your other control circuit through limits and pressure switches most likely 24V.

That model number should be on a name plate sticker, it is usually located in the burner compartment, should list voltage, Input btu's, ect....

thanks, ***** ***** Lowes now in the snow storm for voltage meter and a space heater.
Your assistance is much appreciated.
HVAC Technician: Kcrand36, HVAC Mechanic replied 2 years ago

I will be here for a little while, if you can find that model number, I may be able to pull up a wiring diagram.

Ask Your Own HVAC Question
HVAC Technician: Kcrand36, HVAC Mechanic replied 2 years ago

I did find a schematic for two different type of controls, and also a trouble shooting guide. when you get that volt meter, you may need to check pressure switch for continuity as well.......

I am at a loss as how to use this meter.
I still can't find any plate with Model number.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Do I have to take wires apart to measure the volts?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Ok, I took the connection apart and stuck the prob ends into the connector (white black and red ready snap to the blower) I get .78 volts on the red and black leads.Also I should share that my zone controller is a Honeywell universal mini zone. The purge light has always flashed, I have no idea why?
