SAFETY CONSIDERATIONS
• Do not cover the furnace, store trash or debris near it, or
in any way block the flow of fresh air to the unit.
• 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 materials may be combustible.
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.
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 would 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,
furnace damage, or improper operation; carefully follow
these safety rules:
• Your gas furnace uses air from outside the home for combustion and vents flue gas to the outdoors. It is not to be
installed using indoor air for combustion. The vent and airintake 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 the furnace.
! WARNING
Fire Hazard! Failure to keep insulation clear of
furnace could result in fire, personal injury/death
or property damage.
! WARNING
Do not keep combustible materials, gasoline, and
other flammable liquids or vapors around your
furnace. Failure to follow this warning could result
in fire, personal injury/death or property damage.
! WARNING
For proper and safe operation the furnace needs
air for combustion and ventilation. Do not block
or obstruct the openings on the furnace, air
openings to the area in which the furnace is installed, and the space around the furnace. Failure
to follow this warning could result in fire, personal
injury/death or property damage.
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.
5. There are no obvious signs of deterioration of the furnace.
6. The pilot and burner flames are in good adjustment (by
comparison with pictorial sketches or drawings of the
main burner flame and, if applicable, the pilot burner
flame).
5
• Keep the area around your furnace clear and free of combustible materials, gasoline, and other flammable liquids and
vapors.

STARTING AND SHUTTING DOWN
YOUR FURNACE
CL
SE
O
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
starts your furnace. Follow these important safeguards:
9
10
3. Turn OFF electrical supply to the furnace. (See Fig. 10.)
4. Remove main furnace door. (See Fig. 11.)
7
• Never attempt to manually light the burners with a match
or other source of flame.
• 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 above on this 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.
11
5. The gas valve will have a control switch to turn off and on.
Turn the control switch on the gas control to the OFF
position and wait 5 minutes. (See Fig. 12 or 13.) Then
smell for gas, including near the floor. If you smell gas,
STOP! Follow “B” on furnace label. If you don’t smell
gas, go to next step.
! WARNING
If overheating occurs or the gas valve fails to shut
off the gas supply, turn off the manual gas valve to
the furnace BEFORE turning off the electrical supply. (See Fig. 9.) Failure to follow this warning
could result in a fire or explosion, and personal injury/death or property damage.
• CHECK AIR FILTER: Before attempting to start your
furnace, be sure the furnace filter is clean and in place. See
“Performing Routine Maintenance” section in this manual.
Then proceed as follows:
STEPS FOR STARTING YOUR FURNACE
1. Set your room thermostat to the lowest temperature setting. (See Fig. 8.)
2. Close the external manual gas valve. (See Fig. 9.)

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.
NOTE: If the burners fail to ignite after 4 attempts, the fur-
nace 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.
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. 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 temperature selected on the thermostat, the furnace will be switched
off automatically.
Some thermostats have a FAN mode with 2 selections: AUTO
and ON. When set on AUTO, the furnace blower cycles on
and off. In the ON mode, the furnace blower runs continuously. Continuous fan keeps the temperature level in your
home more evenly balanced. It also permits the indoor air to
be continuously filtered. ComfortFan™ –On all but the
58MCA, 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 3 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.

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:
• Inspect all flue gas passages, burners, heat exchangers, coupling box(es), and inducer assembly.
• Inspect all combustion-air and vent piping inside structure
and vent pipe termination outside the structure.
• Check gas pipes leading to and inside of your furnace for leaks.
• 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.
• Inspect and change or clean air filters(s) if necessary.
• Inspect all supply- and return-air ducts for obstructions, air
leaks, and insulation. Remedy any problem when necessary.
• Inspect the return-air duct connections(s) at the furnace to ensure it is physically sound, sealed to the furnace casing, and terminates outside the space containing the furnace.
• Inspect electrical wiring, connections, and components for
loose connections.
• Perform an operational checkout to determine whether your
furnace is working properly and if it requires adjustments.
• 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 for further information.
• Examine the physical support of the furnace. Support should
be sound with not cracks, sagging, gaps, etc. around the base.
• Check furnace for any obvious signs of deterioration.
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 or lower unless winterized. Follow these procedures
to winterize your furnace:
1. Obtain propylene glycol (RV/swimming pool antifreeze
or equivalent).
! CAUTION
Do not use ethylene glycol (Prestone II antifreeze
coolant or equivalent). Failure of plastic components will occur.
2. Turn off electrical supply to the furnace. (See Fig. 20.)
3. Remove main furnace door. (See Fig. 23.)
4. Remove upper inducer housing drain connection cap.
(See Fig. 40.)

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.
FOR INSUFFICIENT AIRFLOW:
• Check for dirty air filter(s).
• Check for blocked return-air or supply-air grilles throughout
your home. Ensure 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 step
only if furnace fails to start.
• Check thermostat for proper temperature. Is thermostat set
above room temperature?

5. Connect field-supplied 1/2-in. 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. 41.)

• Check for obstructions around the vent termination.
If the 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 the LED through
the view port in the blower access panel.
• Is thermostat set on HEAT?
• Check fuses and circuit breakers. Is electrical supply on?
• Is manual shutoff valve in gas supply pipe in open position?
(Follow start-up procedures if you open gas valve.)
NOTE: Turn off electrical supply before continuing with
checklist.
• Is control switch on gas valve in ON position? (Follow startup procedures if you must reset switch to ON position.)
• Check manual reset flame rollout switch located on the burner
box. (See Fig. 3 or 4.) 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.
