CODE: Slow green flash
PROBLEM: This is normal operation.
FIX: N/A

CODE: Slow amber flash
PROBLEM: This is normal operation with a call for heat.
FIX: N/A

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 recommend KDM for sure

July 1, 2020

Dan was very friendly and polite from the start. Did exactly the work that we talked about on the phone, and was very quick making a late evening call on a Sunday. Tested all the joints and even painted the gas lines. I would recommend him for sure.

I would recommend KDM for any of the services they provide

July 1, 2020

I had a 2nd hand pool heater hooked up and needed help getting it fired up. So I contacted Dan at KDM to see if they could help and was pleased he could make it over within a couple of days. He checked out the gas piping for leaks and proceeded to analyze the components of the control system and determined a faulty pressure switch was likely preventing operation. I was able to source the part and Dan was able to make a 2nd call within a day to install and complete the job. So in summary, I would recommend KDM for any of the services they provide.

I would not hesitate to hire Daniel and his crew again

July 1, 2020

Asked for quotes on a A/C and furnace after 17 years when the A/C unit broke down. I contacted a few HVAC contractors including KDM. Daniel could not have been more helpful and responsive and after reviewing the quotes decided to hire him for the job. Could no have made a better choice. Daniel was patient and upfront and answered all my questions when asked. He upgraded my A/C unit for the same price after the original unit we agreed upon was back ordered. The crew came when they said they would an completed the installation in a timely and orderly fashion.

I would not hesitate to hire Daniel and his crew again. In fact he is coming back to deal with another issue I have next month!

Job well done.

I definitely recommend KDM Home & gas for others

July 1, 2020

I was looking for someone who can do the gas line connection on a weekend and I found the right guys with KDM Home & Gas. Daniel came on Sunday morning to do the work. He installed the new gas line, connected the new gas stove, confirmed no leaks and ensured everything works fine. It was a really hot day outside but he did an excellent job.
