WARNING
To prevent possible death, personal injury, equipment damage, or property damage the following bullet points must
be observed when installing the unit.
Follow the instructions listed below when selecting a furnace location. Refer also to the guidelines provided in the section
Combustion and Ventilation Air Requirements.
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Centrally locate the furnace with respect to the
proposed or existing air distribution system.
Ensure the temperature of the return air entering the
furnace is between 55°F and 100°F when the furnace is heating.
Provisions must be made for venting combustion
products outdoors through a proper venting system.
The length of flue pipe could be a limiting factor in
locating the furnace.
Ensure adequate combustion air is available for the
furnace. Improper or insufficient combustion air can
expose building occupants to gas combustion products that could include carbon monoxide. Refer to
Condensate Drain Lines and Trap for further details.
The furnace must be level. If the furnace is to be set
on a floor that may become wet or damp at times, the
furnace should be supported above the floor on a
concrete base sized approximately 1-1/2" larger
than the base of the furnace.
Ensure upflow or horizontal furnaces are not installed directly on carpeting, or any other combustible material. The only combustible material allowed is wood.
•
•
•
Exposure to contaminated combustion air will result
in safety and performance-related problems. Do not
install the furnace where the combustion air is exposed to the following substances:

Combustion and Ventilation Air Requirements
WARNING
Possible death, personal injury or property damage may occur if the furnace is not provided with enough fresh air
for proper combustion and ventilation of flue gases. Most homes require outside air to be supplied to the furnace
area.
Improved construction and additional insulation in buildings have reduced heat loss by reducing air filtration and escape
around doors and windows. These changes have helped in reducing heating/cooling costs but have created a problem
supplying combustion and ventilation air for gas fired and other fuel burning appliances. Appliances that pull air out of
the house (clothes dryers, exhaust fans, fireplaces, etc.) increase the problem by starving appliances for air.
House depressurization can cause back drafting or improper combustion of gas-fired appliances, thereby exposing
building occupants to gas combustion products that could include carbon monoxide.
If this furnace is to be installed in the same space with other gas appliances, such as a water heater, ensure there is an
adequate supply of combustion and ventilation air for the other appliances. Refer to the latest edition of the National Fuel
Gas Code NFPA 54/ANSI Z223.1 (Section 5.3), or CSA B149 Installation Codes (Sections 7.2, 7.3, or 7.4), or applicable
provisions of the local building codes for determining the combustion air requirements for the appliances.
This furnace must use indoor air for combustion. It cannot be installed as a direct vent (i.e., sealed combustion) furnace.
The burner box is present only to help reduce sound transmission from the burners to the occupied space.
Most homes will require outside air be supplied to the furnace area by means of ventilation grilles or ducts connecting
directly to the outdoors or spaces open to the outdoors such as attics or crawl spaces.
The following information on air for combustion and ventilation
is reproduced from the National Fuel Gas Code
NFPA 54/ANSI Z223.1 Section 5.3.
(d) In addition to air needed for combustion, air shall be supplied for
ventilation, including all air required for comfort and proper
working conditions for personnel.
5.3.1 General:
(e) While all forms of building construction cannot be covered in
detail, air for combustion, ventilation and dilution of flue gases
for gas utilization equipment vented by natural draft normally
may be obtained by application of one of the methods covered
in 5.3.3 and 5.3.4.
(a) The provisions of 5.3 apply to gas utilization equipment installed in buildings and which require air for combustion,
ventilation and dilution of flue gases from within the building.
They do not apply to (1) direct vent equipment which is
constructed and installed so that all air combustion is obtained
from the outside atmosphere and all flue gases are discharged to
the outside atmosphere, or (2) enclosed furnaces which incorporate an integral total enclosure and use only outside air for
combustion and dilution of flue gases.
(f) Air requirements for the operation of exhaust fans, kitchen
ventilation systems, clothes dryers, and fireplaces shall be
considered in determining the adequacy of a space to provide
combustion air requirements.
(b) Equipment shall be installed in a location in which the facilities
for ventilation permit satisfactory combustion of gas, proper
venting and the maintenance of ambient temperature at safe
limits under normal conditions of use. Equipment shall be
located so as not to interfere with proper circulation of air. When
normal infiltration does not provide the necessary air, outside
air shall be introduced.
5.3.2 Equipment Located in Unconfined Spaces:
In unconfined spaces (see definition below) in buildings, infiltration
may be adequate to provide air for combustion ventilation and
dilution of flue gases. However, in buildings of tight construction
(for example, weather stripping, heavily insulated, caulked, vapor
barrier, etc.), additional air may need to be provided using the
methods described in 5.3.3-b or 5.3.4.
(c) In addition to air needed for combustion, process air shall be
provided as required for: cooling of equipment or material,
controlling dew point, heating, drying, oxidation or dilution,
safety exhaust, odor control, and air for compressors.
Space, Unconfined.
For purposes of this Code, a space whose volume is not less than 50
cubic feet per 1,000 BTU per hour of the aggregate input rating of
all appliances installed in that space. Rooms communicating directly with the space in which the appliances are installed through
openings not furnished with doors, are considered a part of the
unconfined space.

Category I Venting (Vertical Venting)
WARNING
To prevent possible death or personal injury due to asphyxiation, this Non-Condensing Gas Fired Warm Air
Furnace must be Category I vented. Do not vent using Category III venting.
Category I Venting is venting at a non-positive pressure. A furnace vented as Category I is considered a fan-assisted
appliance and the vent system does not have to be “gas tight.” NOTE: Single stage gas furnaces with induced draft
blowers draw products of combustion through a heat exchanger allowing, in some instances, common venting
with natural draft appliances (i.e. water heaters).
All installations must be vented in accordance with National Fuel Gas Code NFPA 54/ANSI Z223.1 - latest edition. In
Canada, the furnaces must be vented in accordance with the National Standard of Canada, CAN/CSA B149.1 and CAN/
CSA B149.2 - latest editions and amendments.
NOTE: The vertical height of the Category I venting system must be at least as great as the horizontal length of the venting
system.
WARNING
To prevent possible death or personal injury due to asphyxiation, common venting with other manufacturer’s
induced draft appliances is not allowed.
Common venting of this furnace is allowed with the addition of a common vent kit (CVK) for each appliance. Contact the
local installing dealer, distributor or us directly for more information.
The minimum vent diameter for the Category I venting system is as shown below:

WARNING
To prevent death, personal injury or property damage when either using propane gas alone or at higher altitudes,
obtain and install the proper conversion kit(s). Failure to do so can result in unsatisfactory operation and/or
equipment damage. High altitude kits are for U.S. installations only and are not approved for use in Canada.
19
Gas Supply and Piping
High Altitude Derate
When this furnace is installed at high altitude, the appropriate High Altitude orifice kit must be applied. This is required due
to the natural reduction in the density of both the gas fuel and combustion air as altitude increases. The kit will provide
the proper design certified input rate within the specified altitude range.
High altitude kits are purchased according to the installation altitude and usage of either natural or propane gas. Refer
to the product Specification Sheet for a tabular listing of appropriate altitude ranges and corresponding manufacturer’s high
altitude (natural, propane gas, and/or pressure switch) kits.
Do not derate the furnace by adjusting the manifold pressure to a lower pressure than specified on the furnace rating plate.
The combination of the lower air density and a lower manifold pressure will prohibit the burner orifice from drawing the
proper amount of air into the burner. This may cause incomplete combustion, flashback, and possible yellow tipping.
In some areas the gas supplier may artificially derate the gas in an effort to compensate for the effects of altitude. If the
gas is artificially derated, the appropriate orifice size must be determined based upon the BTU/ft3 content of the derated
gas and the altitude. Refer to the National Fuel Gas Code, NFPA 54/ANSI Z223.1, and information provided by the gas
supplier to determine the proper orifice size.
A different pressure switch may be required at high altitude regardless of the BTU/ft3 content of the fuel used. Refer to the
product Specification Sheet for a tabular listing of appropriate altitude ranges and corresponding manufacturer’s pressure
switch kits.
Gas Piping Connections
The gas piping supplying the furnace must be properly sized based on the gas flow required, specific gravity of the gas,
and length of the run. The gas line installation must comply with local codes, or in their absence, with the latest edition
of the National Fuel Gas Code, NFPA 54/ANSI Z223.1.
To connect the furnace to the building’s gas piping, the installer must supply a ground joint union, drip leg, manual shutoff
valve, and line and fittings to connect to gas valve. In some cases, the installer may also need to supply a transition piece
from 1/2" pipe to a larger pipe size.
The following rules apply when installing piping:
1. Use black iron or steel pipe and fittings for the building piping.
Location of Manual Valve
(Installed Ahead of Ground
Joint Pipe Union)
2. Use pipe joint compound on male threads only. Pipe
joint compound must be resistant to the action of the
fuel used.

Gas Piping Checks
WARNING
To avoid the possibility of explosion or fire, never use a match or open flame to test for leaks.
CAUTION
To prevent personal injury or property damage due to fire, the following instructions must be performed regarding
gas connections, pressure testing, location of shutoff valve and installation of gas piping.
Before placing unit in operation, leak test the unit and gas connections.
Check for leaks using an approved chloride-free soap and water solution, an electronic combustible gas detector, or other
approved testing methods.
NOTE: Never exceed specified pressures for testing. Higher pressure may damage the gas valve and cause
subsequent overfiring, resulting in heat exchanger failure.
Disconnect this unit and shutoff valve from the gas supply piping system before pressure testing the supply piping system
with pressures in excess of 1/2 psig (3.48 kPa).
Isolate this unit from the gas supply piping system by closing its external manual gas shutoff valve before pressure testing
supply piping system with test pressures equal to or less than 1/2 psig (3.48 kPa).
Propane Gas and/or High Altitude Installations
WARNING
Possible death, personal injury or property damage may occur if the correct conversion kits are not installed. The
appropriate kits must be applied to insure safe and proper furnace operation. All conversions must be performed
by a qualified installer or service agency.
This furnace is shipped from the factory configured for natural gas at standard altitude. Propane gas installations require
an orifice change to compensate for the energy content difference between natural and propane gas.
High altitude installations may require both a pressure switch and an orifice change. These changes are necessary to
compensate for the natural reduction in the density of both the gas fuel and the combustion air at higher altitude.
Refer to the product Specification Sheet for a tabular listing of appropriate manufacturer’s kits for propane gas and/or high
altitude installations. The indicated kits are required to insure safe and proper furnace operation. All conversions must
be performed by a qualified installer or service agency.
22
Propane Gas Tanks and Piping
WARNING
PERSONAL INJURY HAZARD
To prevent death, personal injury, or property damage due to fire or explosion from a propane gas leak, install a
gas detecting warning device. A gas detecting warning device is the only reliable way to detect a propane gas
leak. Do not rely on smell as rust can reduce the level of odorant in propane gas.
Remember:
•
•
•
Propane gas is heavier than air and leaking gas can settle in any low area or confined space.
A propane gas odor can fade, making the gas undetectable.
A warning device is a required item, if the propane gas unit is installed in either a basement, an excavated area or
a confined space.
If the presence of gas is suspected:
•
•
•
•
Do not try to light any appliance.
Do not touch any electrical switch or use any phone in your building.
Immediately call your gas supplier from a neighbor’s phone. Follow the gas supplier’s instructions.
If you cannot reach your gas supplier, call the fire department.
IN CANADA “THE CONVERSION SHALL BE CARRIED OUT IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF
THE PROVINCIAL AUTHORITIES HAVING JURISDICTION AND IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF
THE CAN/CSA B149.1 AND B149.2 INSTALLATION CODE.”
IMPORTANT NOTE: Propane gas conversion kits must
be installed to convert units to propane gas. See
Specification Sheet for kit part number for this model.
All propane gas equipment must conform to the safety
standards of the National Board of Fire Underwriters (See
NBFU Manual 58).
Since propane gas will quickly dissolve white lead and
most standard commercial compounds, special pipe dope
must be used. Shellac-based compounds resistant to the
actions of liquefied petroleum gases such as Gasolac®,
Stalactic®, Clyde’s® or John Crane® are satisfactory.
Refer to the following illustration for typical propane gas
installations.
For satisfactory operation, propane gas supply pressure
must be 11 inch W.C. at the unit manifold with all gas
appliances in operation. Maintaining proper gas pressure
depends on three main factors:
5 to 15 PSIG
(20 PSIG Max.)

Circulating Air and Filters
NOTE: An undersized opening will cause reduced
airflow.
Ductwork Sizing
Duct systems and register sizes must be properly designed for the CFM and external static pressure rating of
the furnace. Ductwork should be designed in accordance
with the recommended methods of “Air Conditioning
Contractors of America” Manual D.
A duct system must be installed in accordance with Standards of the National Board of Fire Underwriters for the
Installation of Air Conditioning, Warm Air Heating and
Ventilating Systems. Pamphlets No. 90A and 90B.
A closed return duct system must be used, with the return
duct connected to the furnace. NOTE: Ductwork must
never be attached to the back of the furnace. Supply
and return connections to the furnace may be made with
flexible joints to reduce noise transmission. To prevent the
blower from interfering with combustion air or draft when a
central return is used, a connecting duct must be installed
between the unit and the utility room wall. A room, closet,
or alcove must not be used as a return air chamber.
When the furnace is used in connection with a cooling unit,
the furnace should be installed in parallel with or on the
upstream side of the cooling unit to avoid condensation in
the heating element. With a parallel flow arrangement, the
dampers or other means used to control the flow of air must
be adequate to prevent chilled air from entering the furnace
and, if manually operated, must be equipped with means
to prevent operation of either unit unless the damper is in
the full heat or cool position.
Units with an air delivery of less than 1800 CFM should
either use the bottom return or one-side return.
Units with an air delivery of 1800 CFM or higher must either
use a two-side return combination or a one-side return and
one bottom return combination. These combinations provide proper airflow through the unit.
To ensure proper unit performance follow the filter sizes
given in the Specifications Sheet.
Upright Installations
Depending on the installation and/or customer preference,
differing filter arrangements can be applied. Filters can be
installed in the central return register, the bottom of the
blower compartment, a side panel external filter rack kit, or
inside the side panel. As an alternative a media air filter or
electronic air cleaner can be used as the requested filter.
Review and follow the filter sizes given in the Specifications Sheet to ensure proper unit performance. The
following figures show possible filter locations.

Refer to the Specification Sheet for recommended minimum filter sizes.
Possible Filter Locations
Filters must be used with this furnace. Discuss filter maintenance with the building owner. Filters do not ship with
this furnace, but must be provided by the installer. Filters
must comply with UL900 or CAN/ULCS111 standards. If
the furnace is installed without filters, the warranty will be
voided.

Startup Adjustments and Measurements
Furnace must have a 115 VAC power supply properly connected and grounded. Proper polarity must be maintained for
correct operation. An interlock switch prevents furnace operation if the blower door is not in place. Keep the blower access
door in place except for inspection and maintenance.
This furnace is also equipped with a self-diagnosing electronic control module. In the event a furnace component is not
operating properly, the control module LED will flash on and off in a factory-programmed sequence, depending on the
problem encountered. This light can be viewed through the observation window in the blower access door. Refer to the
Troubleshooting Chart for further explanation of the lighting codes.
On new installations, or if a functional part such as the gas valve, pressure switch, or limit control has been replaced, verify
that the furnace is operating properly after servicing.
Check furnace operation as outlined in the following instructions. If any sparking, odors, or unusual noises are
encountered, shut off electrical power and recheck for wiring errors, or obstructions in or near the blower motors. Various
shipping materials must be removed before the blower motor is operated. In addition to the following startup adjustments
and measurements items, refer to further information in Operational Checks.
Furnace Operation
Purge gas lines of air prior to startup. Be sure not purge lines into an enclosed burner compartment.
Check for leaks using an approved chloride-free soap and water solution, an electronic combustible gas detector, or other
approved method. Verify that all required kits (propane gas, high altitude, etc.) have been appropriately installed.
NOTE: An interlock switch prevents furnace operation if the blower door is not in place. Keep the blower access
doors in place except for inspection and maintenance.

Startup Adjustments and Measurements
Measure and Adjust Temperature Rise
6. Turn the adjustment screw clockwise to increase the
pressure, or counterclockwise to decrease the pressure.
Air temperature rise is the temperature difference between
supply and return air. Temperature rise must be within the
range specified on the unit rating plate. An incorrect temperature rise could cause condensing in or overheating of
the heat exchanger. An airflow and temperature rise table
is provided in the specification sheet. Determine and
adjust temperature rise as follows:
7. Securely replace the regulator cap.
8. Turn OFF gas to furnace at the manual shutoff valve
and disconnect manometer.
9. Reinstall gas valve outlet pressure tap plug before
turning on gas to furnace.
1. Operate furnace with burners firing for approximately
ten minutes. Ensure all registers are open and all
duct dampers are in their final (fully or partially open)
position.
Measure Natural Gas Input Rate
NOTE: The gas input rate to the furnace must never be
greater than that specified on the unit rating plate.
2. Place thermometers in the return and supply ducts
as close to the furnace as possible. Thermometers
must not be influenced by radiant heat by being able
to “see” the heat exchanger.
Use the following procedure to measure natural gas input
using the gas meter:
3. Subtract the return air temperature from the supply
air temperature to determine the air temperature rise.
Allow adequate time for thermometer readings to
stabilize.
1. Turn OFF the gas supply to all other gas-burning appliances except the furnace.
2. While the furnace is operating, time and record one
complete revolution of the smallest gas meter dial.
4. Adjust temperature rise by adjusting the circulator
blower speed. Increase blower speed to reduce temperature rise. Decrease blower speed to increase
temperature rise. Refer to Adjust Circulator Blower
Speeds for speed changing details.
3. Calculate the number of seconds per cubic foot (sec/
ft3) of gas being delivered to the furnace. If the dial is
a one cubic foot dial, divide the number of seconds
recorded in step 2 by one. If the dial is a two cubic
foot dial, divide the number of seconds recorded in
step 2 by two.

4. Calculate the furnace input in BTUs per hour (BTU/
hr). Input equals the sum of the installation’s gas
heating value and a conversion factor (hours to seconds) divided by the number of seconds per cubic
foot. The measured input must not be greater than
the input indicated on the unit rating plate.

Startup Procedure and Adjustment
4. Locate the blower speed selection DIP switches on the
integrated control module. Select the desired “cooling” speed tap by positioning switches 1 and 2 appropriately. Select the desired “adjust” tap by positioning
switches 3 and 4 appropriately. Refer to the following
figure for switch positions and their corresponding
taps. Turn off power to furnace for a minimum of 10
seconds, allowing motor to reset and recognize new
speed selection. Turn on power to furnace. Verify
CFM by counting the number of times the green CFM
LED blinks.
5. Select the heating speed from the heating speed chart
in the specification sheet for your model. The adjust
setting (already established by the cooling speed
selection) determines which set of speeds are available. The selected speed must provide a temperature
rise within the rise range listed with the particular
model.
Example: The 70 kBtu is set for 990 CFM on cooling,
the “ADJUST” is set to “-” (minus). The
four heating speeds available are “A Minus”, “B Minus”, “C Minus”, and “D Minus”.
“B Minus” has a rise of 56°F for both
stages which is within the 30-60°F rise
range for the 70 kBtu. This setting will
keep electrical consumption to a minimum. Set the “Heat” speed DIP switches
to “A”.
6. Select the desired “heating” speed tap by positioning
switches 7 and 8 appropriately. Refer to figure above.
Turn off power to furnace for a minimum of 10 seconds,
allowing motor to reset and recognize new speed
selection. Turn on power to furnace. Verify selected
CFM by counting the green CFM LED blinks.
Adjust Circulator Blower Speeds
WARNING
To avoid death or personal injury due to electrical
shock, turn off power to the furnace before changing
speed taps.
All furnaces are shipped with heating speed set at “B” and
cooling speed set at “D”. Use the following procedure to
select the heating and cooling speed needed for your unit.
Use the CFM LED (green), adjacent to the integrated
control module fuse to verify airflow quantity. The green
CFM LED blinks once for each 100 CFM of airflow.
1. Determine the tonnage of the cooling system installed
with the furnace. If the cooling capacity is in BTU/hr
divide it by 12,000 to convert capacity to TONs.
Example:Cooling Capacity of 30,000 BTU/hr.
30,000/12,000 = 2.5 Tons
2. Determine the proper air flow for the cooling system.
Most cooling systems are designed to work with air
flows between 350 and 450 CFM per ton. Most manufacturers recommend an air flow of about 400 CFM per
ton.
Example: 2.5 tons X 400 CFM per ton = 1000 CFM
The cooling system manufacturer’s instructions must be
checked for required air flow. Any electronic air cleaners
or other devices may require specific air flows, consult
installation instructions of those devices for requirements.
In general lower heating speeds will: reduce electrical
consumption, lower operating sound levels of the blower,
and increase the outlet air temperature delivered to the
home. The speeds available allow the blower performance to be optimized for the particular homeowner’s
needs.
3. Knowing the furnace model, locate the high stage
cooling air flow charts in the specification sheet. Look
up the cooling air flow determined in step 2 and find the
required cooling speed and adjustment setting.
Example: A 70 kBtu furnace is to be installed with a
2.5 ton air conditioning system. The air
flow needed is 1000 CFM. Using the cooling speed chart for the 70 kBtu furnace,
find the airflow closest to 1000 CFM. A
cooling airflow of 990 CFM can be attained by setting the cooling speed to “C”
and the adjustment to “-” (minus).
NOTE: Continuous Fan Speed will be
56% of high stage cooling.

Operational Checks
These checks establish that the primary limit control is functioning and will respond to a restriction in the return air, or a
circulator blower failure. If the primary limit control does not function during this test, the cause must be determined and
corrected.
WARNING
To prevent personal injury or death, do not remove any internal compartment covers or attempt any adjustment.
Electrical components are contained in both compartments. Contact a qualified service agent at once if an
abnormal flame appearance should develop.
WARNING
To prevent death, personal injury or property damage due to fire, follow these directions for the auxiliary limit
control. If the auxiliary limit control opens, it may be reset one time only.
WARNING
To prevent death, personal injury, property damage or premature failure of heat exchanger, do not adjust the
primary limit control (factory set).
Burner Flame
Auxiliary Limit
The burner flames should be inspected with the burner
compartment door installed. A sight glass is provided for
inspection purposes. Flames should be stable, quiet, soft,
and blue (dust may cause orange tips but they must not be
yellow). Flames should extend directly outward from the
burners without curling, floating, or lifting off. Flames must
not impinge on the sides of the heat exchanger firing tubes.
A manual reset limits are located on or near the blower. To
access this auxiliary limit, disconnect the electrical power
and remove the blower door. If the limit control opens, the
air circulation blower will run continuously. The diagnostic
light will flash four times. These symptoms are identical to
a trip of the primary limit control.
The auxiliary limit control is designed to prevent furnace
operation in case of main blower failure on horizontal
installations. It may also open if the power supply is
interrupted while the furnace is firing.
The auxiliary limit control is suitable for both horizontal right
and horizontal left installations. Regardless of airflow direction, it does not need to be relocated.
(SERVICER’S NOTE: If it becomes necessary to slide the
blower assembly out of the furnace, the auxiliary limit
control should be removed first. After the blower assembly
is reinstalled, the auxiliary limit must be reinstalled.)
Check the burner flames for:
1. Good adjustment
2. Stable, soft and blue
3. Not curling, floating, or lifting off.

3. Remove the return air blockage to clear overheating
condition. After an acceptable temperature is
reached during the cool down period, the limit control
will reset and allow the furnace to resume normal operation.
The primary limit control guards against overheating resulting from insufficient conditioned air passing over the
heat exchanger. If the primary limit control does not
function during this test, the cause must be determined and
corrected. Function of this control should be verified by
gradually blocking the furnace return air after the furnace
has been operating (burners firing) for approximately 15
minutes. Check the control as follows:

2. Gradually block the return air to furnace. Remove
airflow blockage when limit control is activated and
turns off burners. Airflow blockage causes unit overheating and will produce the following reactions:
• The gas valve to close and extinguish flame,
• The induced draft blower to deenergized after a
fifteen second postpurge, and
• The circulator blower to remain energized continuously until limit control resets.

Safety Circuit Description
A number of safety circuits are employed to ensure safe and proper furnace operation. These circuits serve to control
any potential safety hazards and serve as inputs in the monitoring and diagnosis of abnormal function. These circuits
are continuously monitored during furnace operation by the integrated ignition control.
Rollout Limit
Integrated Ignition Control
The rollout limit controls are mounted on the burner/
manifold assembly and monitor the burner flame. They are
normally-closed (electrically), manual-reset, temperatureactivated sensors. These limits guard against burner
flames not being properly drawn into the heat exchanger.
The integrated ignition control is an electronic device
which controls all furnace operations. Responding to the
thermostat, the module initiates and controls normal furnace operation, and monitors and addresses all safety
circuits. If a potential safety concern is detected, the
module will take the necessary precautions and provide
diagnostic information through an LED.
Pressure Switches
Primary Limit
The pressure switches are normally-open (closed during
operation), single-pole single-throw, negative air pressure-activated switches. They monitor the airflow (combustion air and flue products) through the heat exchanger
via pressure taps located on the induced draft blower and
the coil front cover. These switches guard against insufficient airflow (combustion air and flue products) through the
heat exchanger and/or blocked condensate drain conditions.
The primary limit control is located on the partition panel
and monitors heat exchanger compartment temperatures.
It is a normally-closed (electrically), automatic reset, temperature-activated sensor. The limit guards against the
overheating as a resulting of insufficient conditioned air
passing over the heat exchanger.
Auxiliary Limit
Flame Sensor
The auxiliary limit controls are located on or near the
circulator blower and monitors heat exchanger compartment temperatures. They are a normally-closed (electrically), manual-reset, temperature activated sensor. These
limits guard against overheating as a result of insufficient
conditioned air passing over the heat exchanger.
The flame sensor is a probe mounted to the burner/
manifold assembly which uses the principle of flame rectification to determine the presence or absence of flame.
Burner Box
This furnace must use indoor air for combustion. It is not a
direct vent furnace, and it cannot be installed as a direct
vent furnace. The burner box is present only to reduce the
burner sound transmission.

Troubleshooting
Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) Precautions
NOTE: Discharge body’s static electricity before touching unit. An electrostatic discharge can adversely affect
electrical components.
Use the following precautions during furnace installation and servicing to protect the integrated ignition control from
damage. By putting the furnace, the control, and the person at the same electrostatic potential, these steps will help avoid
exposing the integrated ignition control to electrostatic discharge. This procedure is applicable to both installed and
uninstalled (ungrounded) furnaces.
1. Disconnect all power to the furnace. Do not touch the integrated ignition control or any wire connected to the control prior to discharging your body’s electrostatic charge to ground.
2. Firmly touch a clean, unpainted, metal surface of the furnaces near the control. Any tools held in a person’s hand
during grounding will be discharged.
3. Service integrated ignition control or connecting wiring following the discharge process in step 2. Use caution not
to recharge your body with static electricity; (i.e., do not move or shuffle your feet, do not touch ungrounded objects, etc.). If you come in contact with an ungrounded object, repeat step 2 before touching control or wires.
4. Discharge your body to ground before removing a new control from its container. Follow steps 1 through 3 if installing the control on a furnace. Return any old or new controls to their containers before touching any ungrounded object.
Furnace Lockout
Diagnostic Chart
Furnace lockout results when a furnace is unable to
achieve ignition after three attempts, or when it has lost
flame five times during a single call for heat. It is characterized by a non-functioning furnace and a one flash
diagnostic LED code. If the furnace is in “lockout”, it will (or
can be) reset in any of the following ways.
WARNING
To avoid electrical shock, injury or death, disconnect
electrical power before performing any service or
maintenance.
1. Automatic reset. The integrated ignition control will
automatically reset itself and attempt to resume normal operations following a two hour lockout period.
For assistance in determining the source of unit operational problems, refer to the troubleshooting chart on the
following pages The red diagnostic LED blinks to assist in
troubleshooting the unit. The number of blinks refers to a
specific fault code.
2. Manual power interruption. Interrupt 115 volt power
to the furnace for 0 - 30 seconds.
3. Manual thermostat cycle. Lower the thermostat so
that there is no longer a call for heat then reset to
previous setting. Interrupt thermostat signal to the
furnace for 0 - 30 seconds.
NOTE: If the condition which originally caused the
lockout still exists, the control will return to lockout.
Refer to Diagnostic Chart section for aid in determining
the cause.

Maintenance
WARNING
To avoid electrical shock, injury or death, disconnect electrical power before performing any maintenance.
If you must handle the igniter, handle with care. Touching the igniter element with bare fingers, rough handling, or
vibration could damage the igniter resulting in premature failure. Only a qualified servicer should ever handle the
igniter.
The furnace should be inspected by a qualified installer, or service agency at least once per year. This check should be
performed at the beginning of the heating season. This will ensure that all furnace components are in proper working order
and that the heating system functions appropriately. Pay particular attention to the following items. Repair or service as
necessary.
• Flue pipe system. Check for blockage and/or leakage. Check the outside termination and the connections at and

Filters
WARNING
To prevent death, personal injury or property damage due to fire, never operate furnace without a filter installed.
Dust and lint will build up on internal parts resulting in loss of efficiency, equipment damage and possible fire.
CAUTION
To ensure proper unit performance, adhere to the filter sizes given in the Specifications Sheet.
Improper filter maintenance is the most common cause of inadequate heating or cooling performance. Filters
should be cleaned (permanent) or replaced (disposable) every two months or as required. When replacing a
filter, it must be replaced with a filter of the same type and size.
42
Maintenance
FILTER REMOVAL
Depending on the installation, differing filter arrangements
can be applied. Filters can be installed in the central return
register, the bottom of the blower compartment, or a side
panel external filter rack kit. A media air filter or electronic
air cleaner can be used as an alternate filter. The filter
sizes given in the Specifications Sheet must be followed to
ensure proper unit performance. Refer to the following for
removal and installation of filters.

Maintenance
Burners
FLUE PASSAGES
Inspect the heat exchanger flue passageways at the beginning of each heating season. If it is necessary to clean
them, follow the steps outlined below.
1. Turn OFF the electrical power and gas supply to the
furnace.
2. Remove burner assembly by disconnecting the gas
line and removing the manifold brackets from the
partition panel.
3. Remove the flue from the induced draft blower and
the collector box from the partition panel.
4. The primary heat exchanger tubes can be cleaned
using a round wire brush attached to a length of high
grade stainless steel cable, such as drain cleanout
cable. Attach a variable speed reversible drill to the
other end of the spring cable. Slowly rotate the cable
with the drill and insert it into one of the primary heat
exchanger tubes. While reversing the drill, work the
cable in and out several times to obtain sufficient
cleaning. Use a large cable for the large tube, and
then repeat the operation with a small cable for the
smaller tube. Repeat for each tube.
5. When all heat exchanger tubes have been cleaned,
replace the parts in the reverse order in which they
were removed.
6. To reduce the chances of repeated fouling of the
heat exchanger, perform the steps listed in Startup
Adjustments and Measurements.
Visually inspect the burner flames periodically during the
heating season. Turn on the furnace at the thermostat and
allow several minutes for flames to stabilize, since any
dislodged dust will alter the flames normal appearance.
Flames should be stable, quiet, soft, and blue (dust may
cause orange tips but they must not be yellow). They
should extend directly outward from the burners without
curling, floating, or lifting off. Flames must not impinge on
the sides of the heat exchanger firing tubes.
Induced Draft and Circulator Blowers
The bearings in the induced draft blower and circulator
blower motors are permanently lubricated by the manufacturer. No further lubrication is required. Check motor
windings for accumulation of dust which may cause overheating. Clean as necessary.
Qualified Servicer Only
CONDENSATE TRAP AND DRAIN SYSTEM
Annually inspect the drain tubes, drain trap, and fieldsupplied drain line for proper condensate drainage. Check
drain system for hose connection tightness, blockage, and
leaks. Clean or repair as necessary.
FLAME SENSOR
Under some conditions, the fuel or air supply can create a
nearly invisible coating on the flame sensor. This coating
acts as an insulator causing a drop in the flame sense
signal. If the flame sense signal drops too low the furnace
will not sense flame and will lock out. The flame sensor
should be carefully cleaned by a qualified servicer using
emery cloth or steel wool. Following cleaning, the flame
sense signal should be as indicated in the Specifications
Sheet.
BURNER CLEANING
1. Shut off electric power and gas supply to the furnace.
2. Remove screws securing manifold to burner bracket.
Slightly pull manifold out and away from burner
bracket. Burners will drop. Re-secure manifold to
burner bracket.
3. Tilt burners to slotted side of burner bracket. Rotate
burners clockwise to remove.
IGNITER
If the igniter and the surrounding air are at about 70°F and
the igniter wires are not connected to any other electrical
components, the resistance of the igniter should not
exceed 200 ohms. If it does, the igniter should be replaced.
4. Use bottle brush to clean burner insert and inside of
burner.
5. Replace burner (opposite of removal). Ensure burners are fully seated on burner bracket tabs and are
properly aligned.
6. Turn on electric power and gas supply to the furnace.
7. Check furnace for proper operation. Refer to “Operational Checks” section to verify burner flame characteristics.
