Open limit switch
There are two kinds of limit switches.
The first kind that we will try to locate are called manual reset rollout limit switches.
They are small round metal looking devices with two wires attached to them and a little button on the back of them. They are usually located inside the furnace cabinet around the burner tray. Locate them and let me know when you find them. Remember there may be more than one.

Lets try to locate the main limit switch.
It is a rectangular device that has two wires attached to it. It sits inside the furnace cabinet on the back panel wall. Locate it and let me know when you find it.
I think I have located it. The item I located appears to be about 3" long and about 1.5" wide. It is black and looks to be a non metallic substance . It has two red wires attached and is fastened to the furnace with 2 screws
That is it.
Remove the two wires from it and attach them together very good metal to metal.
Once they are attached, attempt to call for heat.
OK.. It worked! the furnace ignited
Now I guess I have to replace that switch
