Customer Question
Hi I have a...

Hi I have a Nordyne gas furnace model KG6RC 080C-16B The heat will not come on. I have taken off the door and there is a blinking light. On the panel this suggests "false flame or gas valve relay shorted.

Contractor's Assistant: Did you double-check the thermostat's settings? And what about the filters?

Yes I checked the filters seem ok thermostat's setting I took down to as low as it would go then raised it up after 5 min. as suggested on the door panel

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

For the most part if I can my neighbour is a plumber with a gas licence

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Not that I can think of
