What Does the Blinking Light on My Heater Mean?

Your heating system relies on lights to flash code when it needs to be repaired. It also engages these lights to relay it’s heating like it should.

Normal heating involves:

  • Simultaneous slow flash—heating system operating like it should.
  • Both lights flash fast—furnace is beginning to call for heat.

If you notice a single light blinking slowly and the other flashing rapidly, your heater could be having a low flame signal. This can happen even when your furnace is running like it should. It indicates the flame sensing rod might be dirty or in the bad spot on the burner. Reach out to us at 832-224-3887 for help.

Here are some of the most typical faults for Lennox heating systems.

Heating System Won’t Kick On

Here are many of the light patterns you could see when your heater won’t turn on or keep heating. The bulk of these issues must be taken care of by a professional, for instance from Air Houston Mechanical LLC.

  1. All LED lights are off. This means your heater might not have power. Go to the breaker box to make sure the heater fuse has not tripped. You should reset the fuse if it’s in the “off” area. If it promptly flips after a subsequent reset, leave the breaker alone and contact us at 832-224-3887.
  2. One light is stable and the other is blinking slowly. This implies the flame rollout switch is may be open. The part is a critical safety mechanism that assists in avoiding fires and carbon monoxide. You shouldn’t seek to take care of this fault without professional help.
  3. A single light is flashing rapidly and the other is flashing slowly. This often signifies power polarity has been reversed. Your heating system might have a wiring issue that calls for expert help from Air Houston Mechanical LLC.
  4. Both lights are flashing slowly. This signifies your furnace’s blower motor likely isn’t running. This part circulates hot air from the furnace into your house. We can assist in pinpointing what’s wrong with this part.
  5. An individual light is blinking slowly and the other is blinking fast. This indicates your HVAC system may have not enough voltage or a short circuit. Reach out to our professionals at 832-224-3887 for support.
  6. One light is flickering on, on and off while the other flickers on, off, on. This indicates there could be an issue with your heating system’s motherboard or wiring. Air Houston Mechanical LLC can pinpoint the problem and take care of it.
  7. Both lights show alternate slow flashes. This means your HVAC equipment may have a flame issue. There might be a problem with its gas supply, gas valve or ignitor control. Get in touch with us at 832-224-3887 for assistance.
  8. One light blinks slowly while the other remains continuous. This typically means your heater’s limit switch is malfunctioning. The switch keeps your HVAC system from getting too hot. Reach out to the pros at Air Houston Mechanical LLC for support.

Furnace Blower Runs But No Warmth
