Luxaire furnace problem


I have a 3 years old Luxaire furnace that shuts off when attempting to start. According to the manual the induced draft blower motor will start and come up to speed. Shortly after inducer start-up, the hot surface igniter will grow for about 17 seconds. After this warm up, the ignition module will open the main gas valve. After flame is established, the supply air blower will start in about 30 seconds. The problem is it stays in the warm-up mode for about 3 seconds and shuts off, then continuously tries to restart itself. After 3 attempts it's suppose lock-out but it doesn't. I had to manually shut the system down to protect other problems that may occur. I have checked and played with the off/on switch, vacuumed the small tubing, and changed the air filter (although, it wasn't dirty). The furnace has a built-in, self diagnostic thats flashes 1 through 10 sequence codes. During these attempt the LED only flashes red, amber, shuts off then red and amber shuts off then repeat this cycle. It doesn't flashes red,amber or green in error code fashion. Also, I have read some postings listed here and it sound like this maybe a common problem with Luxiare and having a tech to fix it just may be temporary.

Luxaire furnace problem


Green/Amber Flash
  • Your furnace comes with a self-diagnostic system, and you can view the results of these tests on your LED screen. A slow green or slow amber flash indicates that the furnace is working normally, without problems. A double amber flash is also normal, and this light is only on modulating furnace models. A rapid amber flash indicates that your furnace is receiving an electrical current below 1.5 microamps. Make sure that your gas is turned all the way on, and then clean your flame sensor if it is dirty. If that doesn't fix the problem, call a service technician.
