How a Low-Fire Pressure Switch Works
Two-stage furnaces have various pressure switches to allow the system to run at different speeds—and work more efficiently. These switches also guarantee your furnace runs safely and vents extra gases from the heat exchanger.
What Happens When a Low-Fire Pressure Switch Malfunctions
Your low pressure switch may not be functioning right if your furnace inducer motor starts up in high speed and high ignition, then loses speed and changes into low-fire mode about 30 seconds later.
Your furnace will communicate 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 see fast flashes or an alternating slow flash as it tells you a fault code.
