The flashing LEDs on your furnace will correspond to a specific fault code that is shown here on their diagnostic chart.


Founded in 1874, YORK has been an industry leader since the beginning. A revolutionary YORK "air washing" system installed in 1914 was the precursor to modern-day air conditioning. In 1924, the world's first air-conditioned office building used YORK equipment. And today, YORK products are heating and cooling iconic structures, including the Empire State Building, the English Chunnel, the U.S. Capitol Building and the Sydney Opera House.


York Furnace error codes are seen in three colors, red, green, and amber/yellow. Each color will also flash a specific number of times to signify a specific error. Breaking down each color, and number of flashes, will help you solve the problem you are having with your York Furnace.


CODE: SLOW GREEN FLASH
RESULT: Normal operation

CODE: SLOW AMBER FLASH
RESULT: Normal operation with call for heat

CODE: RAPID RED FLASH
RESULT: Twinning error, incorrect 24V phasing.
FIX: Check twinning wiring. Flame sense current is below 1.5 microamps

CODE: RAPID AMBER FLASH
RESULT: Check and clean flame sensor. Check for proper gas flow. Verify that current is greater than 1.5 microamps at flame current test pad.

CODE: 4 AMBER FLASHES
RESULT: The control is receiving a "Y" signal from the thermostat without a "G" signal, indicating improper thermostat wiring.

CODE: 1 RED FLASH
RESULT: This indicates that flame was sensed when there was not a call for heat.
FIX: The control will turn on both the inducer motor and supply air blower. A gas valve that leaks or is slow closing would typically cause this fault.

CODE: 2 RED FLASHES
RESULT: This indicates that the normally open pressure switch contacts are stuck in the closed position.
FIX: The control confirms these contacts are open at the beginning of each heat cycle. This would indicate a faulty pressure switch or miswiring. This indicates the normally open pressure switch contact did not close after the inducer was energized.

CODE: 3 RED FLASHES
RESULT: This could be caused by a number of problems: faulty inducer, blocked vent pipe broken pressure switch hose or faulty pressure switch.

CODE: 4 RED FLASHES
RESULT: This indicates that the main limit switch has opened its normally closed contacts.
FIX: The control will operate the supply air blower and inducer. This condition may be caused by: dirty filter, improperly sized duct system, incorrect blower speed setting, incorrect firing rate or faulty blower motor. Also, this fault code could be caused by a blown fuse located on the control board.

CODE: 5 RED FLASHES
RESULT: This fault is indicated if the normally closed contacts in the rollout switch opens.
FIX: The rollout control is manually reset. If it has opened, check for proper combustion air, proper inducer operation, and primary heat exchanger failure or burner problem. Be sure to reset the switch and cycle power (24 VAC) to the control after correcting the failure condition. Also, this fault code could be caused by a blown fuse located on the control board.

CODE: 6 RED FLASHES
RESULT: This indicates that after the unit was operating, the pressure switch opened 4 times during the call for heat.
FIX: If the main blower is in a "Delay on" mode, it will complete it, and any subsequent delay off period. The furnace will lock out for one hour and then restart.

CODE: 7 RED FLASHES
RESULT: This fault code indicates that the flame could not be established. This no-light condition occurred 3 times (2 retries) during the call for heat before locking out.
FIX: Low gas pressure, faulty gas valve, dirty or faulty flame sensor, faulty hot surface ignitor or burner problem may cause this. The furnace will lock out for one hour and then restart.

CODE: 8 RED FLASHES
RESULT: This fault is indicated if the flame is lost 5 times (4 recycles) during the heating cycle.
FIX: This could be caused by low gas pressure, dirty or faulty flame sensor or faulty gas valve. The furnace will lock out for one hour and then restart.

CODE: 9 RED FLASHES
RESULT: Indicates reversed line voltage polarity or grounding problem.
FIX: Both heating and cooling operations will be affected. check polarity at furnace and branch. Check furnace grounding. Check that flame probe is not shorted to chassis.

CODE: 10 RED FLASHES
RESULT: Flame sensed with no call for heat.
FIX: Check gas valve and gas valve wiring This indicates that a primary or auxiliary limit switch has opened its normally-closed contacts and has remained open for more than five minutes.

CODE: 11 RED FLASHES
RESULT: This condition is usually caused by a failed blower motor or blower wheel.
FIX: Cycle power (24 VAC) to the control to reset the hard lockout condition after correcting the failure condition.

CODE: 12 RED FLASHES
RESULT: This code indicates an open igniter circuit.
FIX: This could be a disconnected or loose wire or a cracked or broken igniter.

CODE: STEADY ON RED
RESULT: Control failure.
FIX: Replace control board.

CODE: 60-MINUTE AUTOMATIC RESET FROM LOCKOUT
RESULT: This control includes a "watchdog" type circuit that will reset from a lockout condition after 60 minutes. Operational faults 6, 7, 8 will be reset. This provides protection to an unoccupied structure if a temporary condition exists causing a furnace malfunction. An example would be a low incoming gas supply pressure preventing unit operation When the gas pressure is restored, at some point the "watchdog" would restart the unit and provide heat for the house.

CODE: IGNITION CONTROL FLAME SENSE LEVELS
RESULT: Normal flame sense current is approximately 3.7 microamps DC Low flame signal warning starts at 1.5 microamps. Low flame signal control lockout point is 0.1 microamps DC.

See What Our Customers Are Saying:

by Craig in Whitby on Twintech Heating and Cooling

I called Twintech during the Covid 19 crisis because our furnace was broken and it was still very cold during the nights. Dave answered all of my questions by phone but wanted to come have a look but only if our family felt comfortable having someone visit during the uncertainty surrounding the pandemic and was able to attend that very same affternoon.

He was very courteous and informative but most importantly he respected his and our safety by wearing medical gloves in our home and maintaining proper physical distancing. He reviewed the various options of the products that suited our needs going over not only price but quality of workmanship, warrantees and where the product was manufactured which were all important factors in making such a large purchase. You could tell that Dave had been in this industry for a very long time.

The installation was done by a fine young gentleman the very next day and we now have a toasty warm home to ride out this crisis in while humming along at 96% efficiency!

I would recommend this very professional, small family business for anyone in need of HVAC equipment or maintenance.

by Lucy in Markham on Twintech Heating and Cooling

My special thanks to Twintech teams! They had replaced my furnace and A/C, and installed a new humidifier for me 2 weeks ago. Dave, the sales manager, not only provided me with an honest quote on the best HVAC products with best quality and warranties, he also arranged portable heaters for me and sent supporting docs to energy company for energy audit. Above and beyond service!

Greg, Grant, Mitch had worked tirelessly and professionally to perform the HVAC installation. They worked with professional tools, and performed proper measurement readings after installation. They are very patient with all my questions, and very pleasant to communicate.

Great work guys! This company sure knows their products and they stand behind their services. My home comfort level has improved! I am glad that I can support an ethical and honest local family business.

by ddame on Twintech Heating and Cooling

Professional, flexible on price and delivered on time...well done. All you can ask for when getting a new furnace.

by nicole.el.thorn on Twintech Heating and Cooling

The work was done quickly and professionally. Workers were really polite and easy to work with.
Product works great!

by Gary in London on Twintech Heating and Cooling

Furnace broke down on a Wednesday, shopped around for prices and Friday Twintechs name came up from a referral from my wife's work. Called Dave 11 am, he came over around 1 pm. Gave me a very good price, I accepted. The guys were there two hours later to take the old furnace out and install the new one. All finished by 6:30pm. Finally heat.
They were very pleasant and helpful. As a result we are doing our A/C later this year with this company.

by Shawn L in Whitby on Twintech Heating and Cooling

After some extensive research, we settled on Twintech for our new furnace. The service - from Dave's initial visit - through to the installation was absolutely fantastic.

Dave was super-patient with our many questions, did not try to "up-sell" us into buying things we don't need, knowledgeable, friendly and all-around an excellent Advisor.

I've forgotten the names of the installers but they were superb as well. They showed up on-time, did all the work with no mess or intrusion, removed the old furnace and installed the new one in one day; all with no impacts to our day-to-day life.

I cannot recommend Twintech enough, especially over any of 'bigger guys' who tried to sell us a bunch of thing we don't need. Twintech were fantastic and my wife and I are very pleased with our purchase.

by Stephen from Pickering on Twintech Heating and Cooling

From the minute I met Dave and discussed my new furnace needs I knew I was in good hands. He was patient, knowledgeable and very professional through the quotation process.

Grant and Greg did an outstanding job on the install. They did a great job of explaining the defects with my old furnace. The quality of the installation was excellent and the attention to detail was on another level. The old adage “You get what you pay for” couldn’t be more true as I feel I received great value, skilled expertise and high quality customer service. I highly recommend Twintech for all your heating and cooling needs.

by Arthur on Twintech Heating and Cooling

Glad to have found a not-too-big local firm that provided the needed expertise, quality workmanship, and competitive pricing as well. In and out in one day, removed the old units, did a nice job installing all of the new units, and left no debris. Even have a service contract that far outshined the big company offerings. Would definitely recommend them.

by Leriksen on Twintech Heating and Cooling

Appreciated a quick response to my request. Dave and Greg were very professional and made the experience seamless.

by petesalmon938 from Pickering on Twintech Heating and Cooling

Very professional through the entire process. Installation and removel was done on a sloppy winter day, they put down runners on the floors and stairs and when they left, there wasn;t any sign of someone being in our house. Furnace works great as promised.
