How a Low-Fire Pressure Switch Works
Two-stage furnaces have various pressure switches to allow the system to run at different speeds—and use less energy. These switches also make sure your furnace runs safely and vents extra gases from the heat exchanger.
What Happens When a Low-Fire Pressure Switch Doesn’t Work
Your low pressure switch may not be operating right if your furnace inducer motor begins in high speed and high ignition, then loses speed and shifts into low-fire mode about 30 seconds after.
Your system will demonstrate something’s wrong 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 notice fast flashes or an alternating slow flash as it announces a fault code.
