How a Low-Fire Pressure Switch Works

Two-stage furnaces have numerous pressure switches to help the system to run at different speeds—and be more efficient. These switches also guarantee your furnace runs safely and vents excess gases from the heat exchanger.

What Happens When a Low-Fire Pressure Switch Malfunctions

Your low pressure switch may not be operating right if your furnace inducer motor switches on in high speed and high ignition, then weakens and shifts into low-fire mode about 30 seconds afterward.

Your system will communicate something’s not right with a red flash from its indicator light, which it uses to show error codes. It has this red light to flash code, like Morse code.

You may notice fast flashes or an alternating slow flash as it tells you a fault code.
