How a Low-Fire Pressure Switch Works
Two-stage furnaces have multiple pressure switches to let the system to run at different speeds—and work more efficiently. These switches also ensure your furnace runs safely and vents extra gases from the heat exchanger.
What Happens When a Low-Fire Pressure Switch Fails
Your low pressure switch may not be operating properly if your furnace inducer motor starts up in high speed and high ignition, then weakens and changes into low-fire mode about 30 seconds afterward.
Your HVAC will demonstrate something’s amiss with a red flash from its indicator light, which it uses to exhibit error codes. It has this red light to flash code, like Morse code.
You may notice fast flashes or an alternating slow flash as it tells you a fault code.
