Customer Question
Have Philco furnace Model...

Have Philco furnace Model G6RC 100C-16 - furnace runs for 4 minutes, then shuts off for 10 minutes. Red light blinks twice. Checked to make sure drain is operating, which it is. Checked the flame sensor, which is very clean. What else can we try?

Contractor's Assistant: Did you check the furnace's filters?

The filter is only 2 weeks old

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

My son-in-law is my go-to guy

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

We did not get the elbows on the end of the vent pipe and it rained all day yesterday.

Hello,

This will all be related to the vent pipe/drain system. Did you use a shop vacuum on the drain?

How old is the installation?
