Heil Gas Furnace Not Lighting


No heat yet....I blew out the 1/2-inch condensate hose between the two condensation collector units (top and bottom), including the drain hose from the lower unit which flows to the clear drain hose outside the furnace. Still have two LED flashes (repeatedly), and I can hear a humming sound from the mother board behind the lower access panel. Is there a reset button on the board? Or, is the smaller motor/fan near the heat exchanger froze into position? (Sorry, I didn't answer sooner; I was out of town for five days). Again, thanks for everyone's help...

Your drain is probably plugged somewhere between the furnace condensate trap and the floor drain (assuming that is the set up you have).

Every thing you need to know is in this manual with pictures to help you identify where in your furnace the part you are looking for is.
Hope this helps and we will still be here if you need more help.


Good luck.

I removed the two hoses from the PVC tee trap and the lower well/switch near the blower. In addition, all drains/drain hoses have been cleaned and cleared per Heil installation instructions link provided. I also added 8 oz of water to prime between the condesate units. No furnace yet...Is it possible that the smaller fan that pulls in the outside air is seized after only three years? I read somewhere that this was a problem for Heil furnaces. As always, I appreciate your input and that the weather here in northern Illinois is cooperating. Thank you.

You can't tell the inducer is blowing or not?

Nothing happens inside the furnace--including no movement or attempt for the inducer motor to start up. I can hear a light humming sound near the mother board not the inducer motor area above it (the furnace is a top blower/vent model in the basement). Thanks for helping me troubleshoot the problem.
