Powering off the furnace and restarting would trigger the gas ignition, but it would not stay on. The flame sensor is usually held in place by a single sheet metal screw. The furnace will lock out for one hour and then restart. Showing code 33; limit fault. Although the flame roll out switch is in a different location, pressing it did the job! So, I put the Pro4000 back on the wall, hook it up, plug the furnace back in and the blower is running. As noted previously, furnaces monitor the entire heating cycle to ensure safe operating conditions exist.
If furnace has experienced high temperature conditions, this switch will shut off the furnace. Any idea what to check next? Each color will also flash a specific number of times to signify a specific error. If open less than 3 minutes status code 33 continues to flash until blower shuts off. In other words, there would be no mistaking it. Name-calling, abusive, or hateful language is not tolerated, nor are disrespectful, personal comments. I did not have any compressed air to clean the burners but I just used my mouth to blow the dusf off lol.
I checked the batteries, cleaned up the contacts on the tstat. After the flame sensor is cleaned, it can be screwed back into its original position, the blower compartment door secured and power restored for testing. Occasionally a defective blower door safety switch can cause the furnace to stop working. This condition may be caused by: dirty filter, improperly sized duct system, incorrect blower speed setting, incorrect firing rate or faulty blower motor. They drag out multimeters, fudle around, someone found rubbing a flame sensor with sand paper makes it more sensitive and the system operates briefly, long enough for the home owner to get out the check book and pay them.
We woke up on a Sunday morning with the house temp at 55 degrees and dropping. Most manufacturers rate their filters by removal efficiency. I installed new, clean 7 filters, then tried thinner 4 filters. If your comment is not related, it will be deleted. Ensure that there are no closed vents which would restrict air flow.
Well, the Chronotherm is dead. On my Carrier Boost 90, showing faults 34 and 14, I cleaned the flame sensor ss rod and the igniter, checked the outside supply and return pipes for obstructions, but the gas valve still does not seem to open. Started having issues with furnace not working some months ago. I installed new, clean 7 filters, then tried thinner 4 filters. I am a jack of all trades, I've seen a lot and in a wide range of trades.
If you have central air then you need to check out the indoor evaporator coil. All too many aren't especially good at doing it themselves. The switch wire was crowded against the tin box housing the line-in connection and had rubbed off the insulation, from furnace operating vibration over the last ten years. But for most people, I think it would be helpful to watch the whole thing, sure would have saved me a ton of time. This act is also giving your heat exchanger one hell of a work out. With the filter off and lower load, it's lasting longer.
Well, the Chronotherm is dead. Unfortunately, at 6:20am when the house should be warming up it wasn't so I knew I'd have to do some more trouble shooting and then fix the issue. I checked the batteries, cleaned up the contacts on the tstat. To clean that tube and fin device the blower housing has to be slid out ond then you can see, with a light and mirror if the secondary is plugged up. If you pull the thermostat off the wall and the problem continues it isn't the stat. I sometimes get a code of 33 but after I reset everything it goes away as well. You can discharge it unsafely with an insulated screwdriver across its terminals, then disconnect it and check it with your multimeter.
The board was not damaged which I was glad to discover. The flame sensor is usually held in place by a single sheet metal screw. A visual inspection of the termination vents should reveal any sign of obstructions caused by leaves and traces of animal or insect activity. The blower will run for 4 minutes or until open switch remakes whichever is longer. But for most people, I think it would be helpful to watch the whole thing, sure would have saved me a ton of time.
When they replaced the limit switch, they put one in that allowed for a larger temp range, so they didnt think that was the issue. Found a dirty filter, and almost half the supply registers closed. A suitable mild abrasive to clean the sensor would include a scour pad or steel wool. Once in a great while, at startup, the inductor motor runs but the flames do not light. If this is the cause, can I replace it? Any links to a website or blog will be removed.
Also, look for blockages in the flue, and tighten any loose wiring. The auto-reset flame rollout switch has continuity immediately after shutdown. Unfortunately, at 6:20am when the house should be warming up it wasn't so I knew I'd have to do some more trouble shooting and then fix the issue. Nothing to do with the flame sensor.

If you were referring to the roll-out sensors by the burners those trip as an indication that too much heat is rolling back out of the burner tubes. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed whilst other people consider issues that they plainly do not understand about.
