What Does the Flashing Light on My Furnace Mean?
Your heater depends on lights to flash code when it is malfunctioning. It also uses these lights to tell you it’s heating correctly.
Regular operation involves:
- Simultaneous slow flash—heater running like it should.
- Both lights flash fast—heating system is starting to call for heat.
If you realize that a lone light going on and off slowly and the other blinking fast, your heating system could have a low flame signal. This can take place even when your furnace is heating like it should. It signifies the flame sensing rod could have buildup or in the wrong spot on the burner. Contact us at 715-318-6728 for support.
