How does this inducer motor signal work with no pressure switch?
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
What is the best way too that I only know carrier pressure switch
HVAC Technician: airheatman, HVAC Technician replied 2 months ago

Follow those blue wires to locate it.It is basically the same thing as the pressure switch you are familiar with.Vent motor pulls a vacuum closing contacts.

LOoking. Manual says red light not green.

Found it. Te 3 flashes means the pressure switch failed to close.

Ask Your Own HVAC Question
HVAC Technician: airheatman, HVAC Technician replied 2 months ago

Says this could be caused by: faulty inducer / blocked vent pipe / broken pressure switch / faulty pressure switch".

Ask Your Own HVAC Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Thanks..we did get continuity across the blue wires when inducer.. would you recommend replacing inducer?
HVAC Technician: airheatman, HVAC Technician replied 2 months ago
