CODE: Slow green flash
PROBLEM: This is normal operation.
CODE: Slow amber flash
PROBLEM: This is normal operation with a call for heat.
CODE: Rapid red flash
PROBLEM: This is a twinning error, incorrect 24V phasing.
FIX: You should check the twinning wiring.
CODE: Four amber flashes
PROBLEM: The control is receiving a “Y” signal from the thermostat without a “G” signal, and this indicates that the thermostat is wired incorrectly.
FIX: You should check the thermostat wiring.
CODE: One red flash
PROBLEM: Flame sensed when there was no call for heat.
FIX: You should check for a leaky or slow closing gas valve.
CODE: Two red flashes
PROBLEM: The pressure switch contacts that are normally open are stuck in the closed position.
FIX: You should check for a faulty pressure switch, miswiring, or an open pressure switch contact that didn’t close after the inducer was energized.
CODE: Three red flashes
PROBLEM: Many issues could cause this.
FIX: Check for a faulty inducer, blocked vent pipe, broken pressure switch hose, or a faulty pressure switch.
CODE: Four red flashes
PROBLEM: The contacts on the main limit switch that are normally closed have opened.
FIX: You should check for a dirty filter, an improperly sized duct system, an incorrect blower speed setting, an incorrect firing rate, or a faulty blower motor.
CODE: Five red flashes
PROBLEM: The contacts that are normally closed have opened during the rollout switch. The rollout control is manually reset.
FIX: If it has opened, you should check to see if there’s a proper supply of combustion air. Otherwise, you can inspect the inducer’s operation, the primary heat exchanger for a sign of failure, or the burner for potential issues. Remember to reset the switch and cycle power to the control.
CODE: Six red flashes
PROBLEM: After the unit began operating, the pressure switch opened four times during the call for heat.
FIX: The furnace will lockout for 1 hour and then restart.
CODE: Seven red flashes
PROBLEM: The flame could not be established. The no-light condition occurred three times during the call for heat before locking out.
FIX: You should check for low gas pressure, a faulty gas valve, a dirty or defective flame sensor, a faulty hot surface ignitor, or the burner for potential issues. The furnace will lockout for 1 hour and then restart.
CODE: Eight red flashes
PROBLEM: The flame has been lost five times during the heating cycle.
FIX: You should check the system for low gas pressure, a dirty or faulty flame sensor, or a defective burner. The furnace will lockout for 1 hour and then restart.
CODE: Nine red flashes
PROBLEM: The line voltage polarity has been reversed or there’s a grounding problem.
FIX: You should check the furnace grounding and the polarity at both the furnace and branch.
CODE: Ten red flashes
PROBLEM: A flame has been sensed with no call for heat.
FIX: You should check the gas valve as well as the gas valve wiring.
CODE: Eleven red flashes
PROBLEM: This is usually caused by a failed blower motor or blower wheel.
FIX: After correcting the failure condition, you will want to cycle power to the control which will reset the hard lockout condition.
CODE: Twelve red flashes
PROBLEM: This indicates an open igniter circuit.
FIX: You should check for a disconnected or loose wire, or a cracked or broken igniter.
CODE: Steady red
PROBLEM: This is a control failure.
FIX: You should replace the control board.

What Our Clients Are Saying About Us
I would like to recommend your company to anyoneJuly 1, 2020
Your company KDM Home & Gas has just installed the CV 50 water heater to my house. The installation process was so smooth. You guys put on the carpet runner in order to avoid any scratch and damage to the carpet and the floor. Your professional guidance has highlighted the B Vent should be installed for the chimney exhaust in order to comply with the building & safety code. You have even performed leak test & dial test in order to make sure the whole installation is in a perfect manner. The registration of the warranty is also very convenient and easy.
I really appreciated that you came to my house to inspect the situation and provide the quotation to me before we decide to get the new water heater. The whole process was so smooth and communicate very well. You return all my text message on the same day basis or even within short time. I would like to recommend your company to anyone.

Daniel was really great to work with. His communication and genuine care for the work being done made all the difference in the world to me especially as we’ve never had good experiences with contractors in the past.
Daniel showed up when he said he would, and took his time to explain to me what caused my humidifier to malfunction. His customer service skills are superior and his quality workmanship made the experience a pleasant one.

After our old (20+ years) unit gave out, I used HomeStars to obtain quotes for a replacement. Within 30 minutes of posting, I was speaking with Daniel, who was polite and helpful throughout the process. He offered a fair price and a few different products to choose from, and was able to do the installation the same week.
