Hi Bill. Thanks for the information. The day I wrote you, a heater repairman was here trying to troubleshoot my furnace. This was the second visit in one week, the furnace would not advance to the blower phase and just shut down, no heat. He was here for 5 hours, calling Lennox, peers, etc. He did not get any concrete answers but felt he had narrowed the problem down to the control module and wanted to replace it. He did do a thorough check on the whole system and the furnace has not shut down since 1/4/10. I will call him tomorrow morning and give him your response. This is the second furnace installed in my home in 19 years, and now I learn that the Lennox Pulse21 is obsolete. I also had return air issues that I thought had been resolved adding new vents when the Pulse was installed maybe 10 years ago. Another measurement the tech noticed was the s/a=116.2F, r/a=71.0F which is 45.2F within the specified range of (40-70degrees). Thanks for your help, I appreciate it. Debbie
