Hello, that indicates a problem with one of the controls inside the furnace, we can however attempt a reset, that is a bit of a long shot however.

First make sure the air filter is new or cleaned, then turn power off to the furnace for 5 minutes, then turn the power back on.... tell me what if anything happens.

Also I need the full model number of the furnace, it is on a sticker inside the same compartment as the gas valve, and I need the approximate age of the furnace.

Thanks, ***** ***** switch is a round hocky puck looking device with 1/4" rubber tubes attached. It can have the following problems:

1. Water (condensate) can collect in the tube. ( blow it out)

2. The tiny orifice inside the nipples that the tube connects to, can be clogged, (clean them out with a paper clip wire)

3. The hose can have dried out and have splits in the ends. (trim the ends)

4. The switch can be bad.

Do 1-3 first, if that fails we can do more complex tests on the switch pressure operation.

Next test:

restart the furnace, if the small inducer blower fails to start, then the error code is bogus (happens about 30% of the time)... if the inducer fan starts, wait 2 seconds, then fit a jumper wire across the two terminals on the pressure switch and hold it in place for 70 seconds... if the furnace starts, we know the pressure switch is bad (90% chance of that)

10% chance the furnace vent pipe is clogged with a wasps nest, or the blower wheel on the inducer fan has fallen apart.
