How a Pressure Switch Works
This part plays a critical duty as your furnace prepares to warm your space.
Here’s what goes on after your thermostat’s call for heat:
- Your furnace’s control board commences running the draft inducer blower motor. This drains combustion gases from the heat exchanger and moves in new gas and air so the burners can fire.
- When the pressure switch senses that sufficient air is being pulled into the burners, it closes and signals the control board to ignite the furnace.
- Your furnace ignites and supplies heat.
What Happens When a Pressure Switch Breaks Down
When your pressure switch isn’t working the way it should, you’ll likely hear the fan going and the switch clicking a few times before the furnace shuts down completely. When a part isn’t performing right, your furnace will turn off to protect you.
Your furnace will show you something is wrong 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 notice quick flashes or an alternating slow flash as it communicates a fault code.
