Question and Answers

Question:

Heater does not come on. Red light flashes and there is a beeping tone.

Answer:

Red light flashes are usually a diagnostic code. Count the flashes before a pause. On the inside of the door panel is usually a chart for the codes. The reason it wont come on

is probably a lock out for a safety failure (non-ignition, vent failure, over heating due to bad blower motor, etc.). If you turn off power the codes are usually lost and the board resets. Cycling power may get you heat but first you need to determine this cause of failure or it will happen again. Please seek a professional for repairs.

Question

The heat exchanger is cracked on my Bryant Plus 80 383KAV furnace. It was installed March 1999. Is this still covered by waranty?

Bryant provides a limited 20-year heat exchanger warranty on the 383KAV furnace, so your heat exchanger may still be covered. You can contact Bryant about this at 1-800-428-4326.
