What Does the Blinking Light on My Heater Mean?

Your furnace relies on lights to flash code when it is malfunctioning. It also uses these lights to let you know it’s heating correctly.

Regular operation includes:

  • Simultaneous slow flash—furnace heating correctly.
  • Simultaneous fast flash—heater is beginning to call for heat.

If you notice a single light going on and off slowly and the other going on and off quickly, your furnace might be experiencing a low flame signal. This can take place even when your heating system is running correctly. It means the flame sensing rod might have build-up or in the incorrect location on the burner.
