HVAC Technician: Kcrand36, HVAC Mechanic replied 2 months ago

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
think so
yes
HVAC Technician: Kcrand36, HVAC Mechanic replied 2 months ago

ok, I was able to pull up a wiring diagram, however, I cannot get the code failure legend. This should appear most likely on the inside of the bottom panel. Would you be able to identify those codes from the legend?

Customer reply replied 2 months ago

HVAC Technician: Kcrand36, HVAC Mechanic replied 2 months ago

done
HVAC Technician: Kcrand36, HVAC Mechanic replied 2 months ago

blower started immediately because we have that bypassed on the thermostat, however, did the induced draft motor start? and then an attempt for burners to light?

Ask Your Own HVAC Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Im not sure. I think that is the point where it fails. Fan is on but Nothing else gets going
HVAC Technician: Kcrand36, HVAC Mechanic replied 2 months ago

you are speaking of the circulating fan correct? that would be the fan on the bottom of the cabinet usually..... There is also a fan in the burner compartment, called the draft inducer fan. is this fan operating?

Ask Your Own HVAC Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
No i dont think the draft inducer works. But im not sure as i dont have the technical knowledge. Probably need to get somebody in for this after all.
HVAC Technician: Kcrand36, HVAC Mechanic replied 2 months ago

the codes your were getting, are a "blower failure", "primary high limit open", and a 1 hour lockout.

the very simple things to check are the furnace filter, make sure you have a brand new filter. Specific on Rheem and Rudd, they also had a washable filter that may be in the lower compartment. Check to make sure that is clean.

The next issue would be to cool off the heat exchanger and allow the pri***** *****mit to reset.

The next would be to make sure that we have voltage at the blower on the "heat" tap off the circuit board. I know it's a little confusing and overwelming, so if you don't feel comfortable testing those circuits, then you can pass the information of the "blower failure", pri***** *****mit open and 1 hour lockout to service company and hopefully they will have everything they need to repair when they arrive.
