Customer Question
My furnace stopped working...

My furnace stopped working and I took panel off and pushed the pressure switch and got a 3 blink

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

Yeah, it has one filter, what would that cause? Because it did slide down

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

Only if it's simple

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

Not that I could think of

model?

Without the model all I can give you is general info. A 3 flash is an open draft pressure switch. Is the draft inducer fan on the front of the unit working?
