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.

by GR from Oshawa on Twintech Heating and Cooling

Twintech replaced our aging furnace and air conditioner recently. I highly recommend this company. Their quote was competitive, they were on time and respectful of our home and extremely professional. From the salesman to the installers and the owner who followed up afterward to ensure we were satisfied, we are very pleased with the service. We are looking forward to working with this company for all of our HVAC needs for the years to come. Excellent workmanship and service!

We wanted to get our AC replaced as it was 22-years old and added to this our furnace was costing more and more to repair. So, we decided to get both the furnace and AC replaced.

After going through a few quotes and product reviews we decided to go with Twintech. The three-men crew arrived early in the morning, wasted no time and got to work right away. By 2:00 pm, they were all done. I’ve found their work to be top notch and they were completely professional. I had all my questions answered to my satisfaction both during the progress of their work and at end.

I have pleasure in recommending Twintech to anyone who is looking to get their furnace or Ac replaced

Our air conditioner died On a Saturday and within hours Dave came out to take a look and discuss replacement/repair options.
The new air conditioner was installed on the Wednesday. The new unit was installed quickly. The installers were friendly and cleaned up afterwards.
We noticed a slight leak around the furnace that night and they came out the next day and fixed the issue. It has been working great and is quieter than our previous unit.
Very satisfied and would highly recommend TwinTech.

by Nancy in Toronto on Twintech Heating and Cooling

I contacted TwinTech to replace my 20-year old A/C. Dave, their service rep, promptly replied and was at my home within 2 hours. He was friendly and knowledgeable and didn't try to upgrade or oversell their A/C units but suggested the best fit for my small 1000 feet bungalow. Although this was during a heatwave and very busy, they were able to fit me in 2 days later. The TwinTech crew installed a 1.5 ton Ducane A/C unit that is now running smoothly while maintaining a constant cooling temperature. The crew were very courteous, professional and efficient and I will definitely recommend TwinTech to family and friends. I much appreciated your great service.

We had a great experience. The guys who installed our a/c did a nice job. Cleaned up.

by Private User on Twintech Heating and Cooling

excellent crew, fast and efficient! Would call them again when I need a new furnace.

by Private User on Twintech Heating and Cooling

Professional, courteous and efficient, don’t need to say more than that! Use them you will not regret it.

TwinTech was a pleasure to deal with from the estimate through installation. We replaced a 28 year old a/c unit with one recommended by TwinTech's sales representative Dave who took the time to go over the product with us and answer any questions. The warranty is for 10 years parts and labour and they will complete the registration for you. Installation was by Greg (owner) and Mitch and Spencer who were quick and efficient and left everything clean and tidy.

by Private User on Twintech Heating and Cooling

Very professional, from the sales consultation and inspection to the final installation. Met every expectations we had for the job. A local business with great client support. We highly recommend. Twintech is a blue chip! Thanks!

by Private User on Twintech Heating and Cooling

I left a live chat message on their website that my air conditioning was not working. Within 1hr a representative called me to discuss my options.
The next day he came to the house to review my needs and give me a price for a new system. Price quoted was less than I expected and the installation was completed the following day. I found their salesman and the installers very knowledgeable and easy to deal with. All my questions were answered. Everything was properly explained in regards to what unit was needed and why, along with instruction where needed for use.
The installers made sure everything was working properly before they left.
