HVAC Technician: Rick, HVAC Supervisor replied 5 months ago

An F1 is max flue gas temp exceeded. What's the pressure on the system? Have you tried resetting the control?

Ask Your Own HVAC Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
pressure is normal, when i try resetting it tries and the repeats the F1 error and stops
HVAC Technician: Rick, HVAC Supervisor replied 5 months ago

If you get an F1 right after a reset you probably have a bad flue temp sensor
