I was sitting here thinking to myself that my house was getting cold. I went over and looked at the thermostat and yes it confirmed my suspicions. Not only was it cold, but it is showing that my furnace is running and it's not. :WW:WW:WW:madd

I looked the furnace over and I can't see anything wrong. I changed the batteries in my thermostat, I changed the filter, I made sure all the wires are hooked up and nothing. I can get it to start momentarily, but then the burners just shut off and the blower runs cold air through the house.

I hate calling HVAC people because they really stick it to you. I guess I won't be buying any watches for quite some time now :madd:madd:madd:madd:WW

Oh well such is life. :eek:

Sorry, but if you didn't buy the Kremke and the NFW you could have paid the heating bill.....:lol:lol:lol:lol:lol

Can you make it through the night? Do you have a fireplace? Stay warm and make sure the pipes don't freeze and create more problems....

Thanks guys I mean Jack Ha Ha LOL!! Marc is just laughing at me Ha Ha LOL!!! I'm going to guess that the brain (computer) will need to be replaced so it will probably be quite costly. The sad thing about it is that my home is only 9 years old Argh!!!! It is what it is :WW:WW:madd

Hopefully it doesn't get too bad. We are in the 30's so freezing pipes might be a problem Ugh.....

That is when we noticed things going, around 10 years. Our house is 14 now and we replaced the water heater, and had major repairs ont he furnace and the AC. Is it gas? If so it can be a clogged jet. They have a safety feature and they shut off if clogged. This happened to us. It was a cheaper fix then the brain, though we had that replaced once as well.....Good luck and stay warm....

hey country -settle down -is it a gas burner??

if so -there's a sensor (stick) where the burners are - its a metal stick that sites right where the flames burn - if your burner turns on mometarily and then off -its probably this sensor

you will need to take it off (there's a screw) and get some sand paper and shine it up - call CJ he'll give you some tips on this

also check your exhaust pipe from the furnace to the chimney- right where it attaches to the furnace- look for a dead bird- sometimes that's the issue - its probably the sensor though

It looks like I can get it started by turning the main power off and on, but unfortunately I will have to do this every time to get it to turn back on. It is either the thermostat or the brain. It looks like I will get the privilege of paying an HVAC guy to tell me that I'm stupid LOL!!!

Rob

Any news? Did you get a service tech out? I have a contract with a local repair company. They service my furnace and AC unit twice a year, once before winter and once before summer. Also, they guarantee quick service calls and discount parts if I need to call them out.....

UPDATE: Well I tightened down some wires last night and the furnace is working for now. I will be watching it over the next few days. If it starts acting up again I will assume it is the computer and then I will call out a technician. Thanks for everybodys kind words.

It was a pleasure talking to you George. Thanks for the call last night.
