How a Pressure Switch Works
This part plays a critical part as your furnace prepares to work in your house.
Here’s what occurs after your thermostat’s call for heat:
- Your furnace’s control board begins running the draft inducer blower motor. This drains combustion gases from the heat exchanger and pulls in new gas and air so the burners can fire.
- When the pressure switch senses that enough air is being pulled into the burners, it closes and commands the control board to ignite the furnace.
- Your furnace ignites and provides heat.
What Happens When a Pressure Switch Fails
When your pressure switch isn’t working promptly, you’ll likely hear the fan going and the switch clicking a couple times before the furnace turns off completely. When a part isn’t functioning right, your furnace will turn off as a safety precaution.
Your furnace will show you something is incorrect with a red flash from its indicator light, which it uses to display error codes. It uses this red light to flash code, like Morse code.
You may see quick flashes or an alternating slow flash as it passes on a fault code.
