I have no heat can someone please HELP!
 
Furnace will not run consistantly,it will glow for start up then go out,some times it will stay lit and most of the time it will go out,it will glow for ignition then go out,and restart.I believe its the ignition control or the integrated furnace control,(had to look that up).its a White Rodgers Model 50A50-405 120v, it says to replace with CNT1309 D340035P01,looked them up unable to find either,the light flashes 3 times at times and stays solid other times,can anyone help?

Look on the legend to see what 3 flashes means. Could have a safety that is doing its job.

3 flashes says pressure switch problem,it has been replaced,but still happens,sometimes i get different codes that flash, its not consistant. I'm thinking its a circuit in the control board problem? have looked up the part and White Rodgers says they have no such part,so it must be out dated looked up replacement and couldn't find that either.I have gone down and just moved the wires,it clicks a few times then it will start up and then shut down again,sometimes it will stay on after messin with them and most of the time it won't,haven't seen any bad connections,gas valve is good.

Pressure switch code doesn't mean the pressure switch is the problem. It means something is preventing it from closing.

as beenthere says it may be something causing the pressure switch to do its job....or it may be the pressure switch itself:eek:.....

out of 8 billion pressure switch faults, in my experience, the pressure switch has been the problem about 3 of those times.

carmon 11-25-2012 07:02 PM

well....... maybe a few more than three....I however agree many switches that were doing there job have been thrown away..... it usually is something causing it......:eek::eek::eek:

exactly just because you get a pressure switch fault doesnt mean that the pressure switch is bad it means that somthing is keeping it from closing. In my opinion your board is probably bad if your getting different codes at different intervals
