SAFETY CONSIDERATIONS
Installing and servicing of heating equipment can be hazardous due
to gas and electrical components. Only trained and qualified
personnel should install, repair, or service heating equipment.
Untrained personnel can perform basic maintenance functions such
as cleaning and replacing air filters. All other operations must be
performed by trained service personnel. Observe safety precautions
in this manual, on tags, and on labels attached to the furnace and
other safety precautions that may apply.
.
Recognize safety information. This is the safety--alert symbol
When you see this symbol on the furnace and in instructions or
manuals, be alert to the potential for personal injury.
Understand the signal words DANGER, WARNING, CAUTION,
and NOTE. DANGER, WARNING, and CAUTION are used with
the safety--alert symbol. DANGER identifies the most serious
hazards which will result in severe personal injury or death.
WARNING signifies hazards which could result in personal injury
or death. CAUTION is used to identify unsafe practices which
may result in minor personal injury or product and property
damage. NOTE is used to highlight suggestions which will result
in enhanced installation, reliability, or operation.
To minimize the possibility of serious personal injury, fire, damage
to your furnace, or improper operation, carefully follow these
safety rules which apply to both direct--vent and non--direct vent
applications:
S Your new gas furnace may have been installed in 1 of 2 ways, as
a direct--vent (2--pipe--Fig. 1) application or as a non--direct vent
(1--pipe--Fig. 2) application.
S In a direct--vent (2--pipe) application, your furnace uses air from
outside the home for combustion and vents flue gas to the
outdoors. This type of application will have 2 pipes running
from the furnace to the outdoors. (See Fig. 1.) In this
application, the vent and air--intake pipes must terminate outside
the structure and must not be obstructed in any way. Do not
block or obstruct air openings on furnace or spaces around
furnace.
S In a non--direct vent (1--pipe) application, your furnace uses air
from adjacent to the furnace for combustion and vents flue gas
to the outdoors. This type of application will have only 1 pipe
running from the furnace to the outdoors. (See Fig. 2.) The other
pipe will terminate in the same space as the furnace and is the
source of combustion air for your furnace. Therefore, the furnace
must not be enclosed in an airtight room or be sealed behind
solid doors. It must have adequate airflow for efficient
combustion and safe ventilation. Do not obstruct the
combustion--air pipe in any way. The vent pipe must terminate
outside the structure and must not be obstructed in any way. Do
not block or obstruct air openings or space around furnace.

S Keep the area around your furnace clear and free of combustible
materials, gasoline, and other flammable liquids and vapors.
See Fig. 3.
WARNING
FIRE OR EXPLOSION HAZARD
Failure to follow warnings could result in personal injury,
death, or property damage.
Keep insulation clear of furnace and maintain clearances
shown on unit clearance label.
A92182

S Do not cover the furnace, store trash or debris near it, or in any
way block the flow of fresh air to the unit.
S In addition to the safety rules above, make sure that the
following combustion--air requirements are met for non--direct
vent applications:
S Combustion air must be clean and uncontaminated with chlorine
or fluorine. These compounds are present in many products
around the home, such as: water softener salts, laundry bleaches,
detergents, adhesives, paints, varnishes, paint strippers, waxes,
and plastics.
S Make sure the combustion air for your furnace does not contain
any of these compounds. During remodeling be sure the
combustion air is fresh and uncontaminated. If these compounds
are burned in your furnace, the heat exchangers may deteriorate.
S A furnace installed in an attic or other insulated space must be
kept free and clear of insulating material. Examine the furnace
area when the furnace is installed or when insulation is added.
Some insulation materials may be combustible.
S Should the gas supply fail to shut off or if overheating occurs,
shut off the gas valve to the furnace before shutting off electrical
supply.
This furnace contains SAFETY DEVICES which must be
MANUALLY RESET. If the furnace is left unattended for an
extended period of time, have it checked periodically for proper
operation. This precaution will prevent problems associated with
no heat, such as frozen water pipes, etc. See “Before You Request
a Service Call” section in this manual.
!
5. There are no obvious signs of deterioration of the furnace.
6. The burner flames are in good adjustment, See Fig. 4 (by
comparison with pictorial sketches or drawings of the main
burner flame.)
A92330
Fig. 4 -- Burner Flame Adjustment
STARTING YOUR FURNACE
Instead of a continuously burning pilot flame which wastes
valuable energy, your furnace uses an automatic, hot surface
ignition system to light the burners each time the thermostat signals
the furnace to start.
Follow these important safeguards:
S
Never attempt to manually light the burners with a match
or other source of flame. See Fig. 5.
WARNING
FIRE OR EXPLOSION HAZARD
Failure to follow this warning could result in personal injury,
death, or property damage.

CAUTION
S
UNIT OPERATION HAZARD
Failure to follow this caution may result in intermittent unit
operation.
For proper and safe operation the furnace needs air for
combustion and ventilation. Do not block or obstruct air
openings on the furnace, air opening to the area in which the
furnace is installed, and the space around the furnace.
S
BEFORE STARTING YOUR FURNACE
Examine the furnace installation to determine that:
1. All flue gas carrying areas external to the furnace (i.e. chimney, vent connector) are clear and free of obstructions.
2. The vent connector is in place, slopes upward and is physically sound without holes or excessive corrosion.
3. The return--air duct connection(s) is physically sound, is
sealed to the furnace casing, and terminates outside the
space containing the furnace.
4. The physical support of the furnace is sound without sagging cracks, gaps, etc. around the base.
Read and follow the operating instructions on inside of
main furnace door, especially the item that reads as follows:
“Wait 5 minutes to clear out any gas. Then smell for gas,
including near the floor. If you smell gas, STOP! Follow “B” in the safety information on furnace label. If you
don’t smell gas, go to the next step.”
If a suspected malfunction occurs with your gas control
system, such as the burners do not light when they
should, refer to the shutdown procedures on inside of
main furnace door, or in the “Shutting Down Your Furnace” section and call your dealer as soon as possible.
!
WARNING
FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARD

A05100
Fig. 12 -- Furnace Door Replaced
8. Turn ON the electrical supply to the furnace and wait 1 minute.
See Fig. 13.
12. Set your thermostat to the temperature that satisfies your
comfort requirements. SUGGESTION: Setting the thermostat back a few degrees—and compensating for the difference with warmer clothing—can make a big difference in
your fuel consumption on extremely cold days. The few degrees at the top of your thermostat “comfort level” are the
most costly degrees to obtain.
When the room temperature drops below the temperature selected
on the thermostat, the furnace will switch on automatically. When
the room temperature reaches the setting selected on the thermostat,
the furnace will be automatically switched off.
Continuous Fan Operation --Some thermostats have a “FAN”
switch with 2 selections: AUTO and ON. When thermostat is set
on AUTO, the furnace blower cycles on and off, controlled by the
thermostat. In ON position, the furnace blower runs continuously.
Continuous fan keeps the temperature level in your home more
evenly balanced. It also continuously filters the indoor air.
Comfort Fant -- On all but the base series furnace, the blower
speed can be increased or decreased if desired due to change of
seasons, large gatherings in your home, etc. Simply change your
FAN from ON to OFF for 1 to 3 seconds (or AUTO depending on
your thermostat), and then return to ON. The blower will switch to
the next higher speed. There are at least three speeds to choose
from. If the blower is running on its highest speed, a request to
change will direct the blower to return to its lowest speed.
SHUTTING DOWN YOUR FURNACE
Should you need to shut down your furnace for service or
maintenance, you will need to turn the furnace off. The following
procedures must be followed:
1. Set your room thermostat to the lowest temperature setting.
See Fig. 15.
A92359

O
10. Set the room thermostat to a temperature slightly above the
room temperature. This will automatically signal the furnace
to start.
11. When the furnace receives the start signal, the inducer is started. When the pressure switch senses that there is sufficient
combustion air, the hot surface igniter is energized.
After the hot surface igniter is heated for 17 seconds, the gas
valve permits gas to flow to the main burners. After ignition
and a time delay of about 60 sec, the furnace blower will start.
Variable--capacity furnaces start at low speed until the control
makes the necessary adjustments to operate the blower at
either the low-- or high--heat speed.
A06188
NOTE: If the main burners fail to ignite after four attempts, the
furnace control system will lock out. If lockout occurs, main
burners fail to light, or blower does not come on, shut down the
furnace and call your dealer for service.

WINTERIZATION
!
CAUTION
UNIT AND PROPERTY DAMAGE HAZARD
Failure to follow this caution may result in unit component or
property damage.
If the furnace is installed in an unconditioned space where the
ambient temperatures may be 32_ F (0_ C) or lower, freeze
protection measures must be taken to prevent minor property
or product damage.
Since the furnace uses a condensing heat exchanger, some water
will accumulate in the unit as a result of the heat transfer process.
Therefore, once it has been operated, it cannot be turned off and
left off for an extended period of time when temperatures will
reach 32_F (0_C) or lower unless winterized. Follow these
procedures to winterize your furnace:
1. Obtain propylene glycol (RV/swimming pool antifreeze or
equivalent).

UNIT COMPONENT DAMAGE HAZARD
Failure to follow this caution may result in damage to the
furnace and other property damage.
Do not use ethylene glycol (Prestone II antifreeze coolant or
equivalent). Failure of plastic components may occur.
2. Turn off electrical supply to your furnace.
3. Remove main furnace door.
4. Remove upper inducer housing drain connection cap. See
Fig. 38.
5. Connect field--supplied 1/2--in. (13 mm) ID tube to upper
inducer housing drain connection.
6. Insert field--supplied funnel into tube.
7. Pour 1 quart of antifreeze into funnel/tube. Antifreeze
should run through inducer housing, overfill condensate
trap, and flow into open field drain. See Fig. 39.
8. Remove funnel and tube from inducer housing and replace
drain connection cap and clamp.

A CHECK--UP CHECKLIST
Your furnace represents an important investment in your family’s
comfort and your home’s value. To keep it performing properly
and to prevent future problems, have a trained service specialist
give your furnace a professional check--up annually. The following
checklist can be used as a guideline to proper service:
S Inspect all flue gas passages, burners, heat exchangers, coupling
box(es), and inducer assembly.
S Inspect all combustion--air and vent piping inside structure and
pipe terminations outside the structure.
S Check gas pipes leading to and inside of your furnace for leaks.
S Inspect and clean the blower motor and wheel.
NOTE: The inducer and blower motors are pre--lubricated and
require no additional lubrication. These motors can be identified by
the absence of oil ports on each end of the motor.
S Inspect and change or clean air filter(s) if necessary.
S Inspect all supply-- and return--air ducts for obstructions, air
leaks, and insulation. Remedy any problem when necessary.
S Inspect the return--air duct connection(s) at the furnace to ensure
it is physically sound, sealed to the furnace casing, and
terminates outside the space containing the furnace.
S Inspect electrical wiring, connections, and components for loose
connections.
S Perform an operational checkout to determine whether your
furnace is working properly and if it requires adjustments.
S Inspect all condensate drain tubes and condensate trap assembly
for leaks. The condensate removal system should be cleaned
annually by a qualified service agency. Refer to the Service and
Maintenance Instructions Guide for further information.
S Examine the physical support of the furnace. Support should be
sound with no cracks, sagging, gaps, etc. around the base.
S Check furnace for any obvious signs of deterioration.
BEFORE YOU REQUEST A
“SERVICE CALL”
If your furnace is not operating or not performing properly,
you may save the expense of a service call by checking a few
things yourself before calling for service.
NOTE: Record the LED status code BEFORE removing the
blower access door or turning off 115--v power to the furnace.
Removing the blower access door or turning off the 115--v power
will end the LED status code display and erase the code from the
control’s memory.
For insufficient airflow:
S Check for dirty air filter(s).
S Check for blocked return--air or supply--air grilles. Be sure they
are open and unobstructed.
If problem still exists, call your dealer for service.
If furnace fails to operate:
Follow this checklist step by step, advancing to the next stop only
if furnace fails to start.
S Check thermostat for proper temperature. Is thermostat set above
room temperature?
S Is thermostat set to HEAT mode?
S Check fuses and circuit breakers. Is the electrical power supply
switch on?
S Is the manual shut--off valve in the gas supply pipe leading to
the furnace open?
NOTE: Turn off electrical supply before continuing with
checklist.
S Is control switch on gas valve in ON position? (Follow start--up
procedures if you must reset switch to ON position.)
S Check manual reset flame rollout switch located on the burner
box. See Furnace Components. If furnace has experienced high
temperature conditions, this switch will shut off the furnace.
Reset it by pushing the button on the switch. If it trips again,
shut down the furnace and call for service. See “Shutting Down
Your Furnace” section in this manual.
S Check for obstructions around the vent termination.
If your furnace still fails to operate, call your service representative.
For your convenience, record the furnace product and serial
numbers on back page. Should you ever require service, you will
have ready access to the information needed by your service
representative.
This furnace has a light emitting diode (LED) status code display
to aid the installer, service technician, or homeowner while
installing or servicing the unit. The LED code can be seen by
removing the main furnace door and viewing LED through the
view port in the blower access panel.
Regular dealer maintenance
In addition to the type of routine maintenance you might be willing
to do, your furnace should be inspected regularly by a properly
trained service technician. A semiannual inspection (or annual
inspection, at least) should include the following:
1. Inspection of all flue gas passages including the burners,
heat exchanger, inducer, elbow, and vent pipe.
2. Inspection of all combustion and ventilation air passages
and openings.
3. Close check of all gas pipes leading to and inside of your
furnace.
4. Inspection and cleaning of the blower motor and wheel.
5. Routine inspection and cleaning/replacement of the air filter.
6. Inspection of all supply-- and return--air ducts for obstructions, air leaks, and insulation. Any problems found should
be resolved at this time.
7. Inspection of furnace installation for proper support and any
obvious deterioration of the furnace. The support must be
sound and without sags, gaps, cracks, etc., around the furnace base so as to provide an air seal between the return--air
duct and furnace.
8. A check for loose connections attaching individual components. Inspection of all electrical wiring and their connections.
9. Operational check of the furnace itself to determine working
condition. Repair or adjustment should be made at this time.
Ask your servicing dealer for further details about an economical
service contract that covers seasonal inspections.
