How a Pressure Switch Works
This part plays an important part as your furnace prepares to warm your space.
Here’s what occurs after your thermostat’s call for heat:
- Your furnace’s control board starts running the draft inducer blower motor. This pushes out combustion gases from the heat exchanger and pulls 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 Fails
When your pressure switch isn’t operating promptly, you’ll likely hear the fan run and the switch clicking a couple times before the furnace turns off completely. When a part isn’t working right, your furnace will turn off for your safety.
Your furnace will tell you something is wrong with a red flash from its indicator light, which it uses to present error codes. It uses this red light to flash code, like Morse code.
You may note fast flashes or an alternating slow flash as it communicates a fault code.
