How a Low-Fire Pressure Switch Works
Two-stage furnaces have numerous pressure switches to allow the system to run at different speeds—and use less energy. These switches also ensure your furnace runs safely and vents extraneous gases from the heat exchanger.
What Happens When a Low-Fire Pressure Switch Fails
Your low pressure switch may not be functioning properly if your furnace inducer motor begins in high speed and high ignition, then slows down and shifts into low-fire mode about 30 seconds later.
Your furnace will demonstrate something’s not right with a red flash from its indicator light, which it uses to display error codes. It has this red light to flash code, like Morse code.
You may see fast flashes or an alternating slow flash as it tells you a fault code.
