Hi there, what kind of problem are you having?
After 10 minutes of working, the gas shuts off even though the temp has not reached the thermostat setting.
and the fan continues to run?\
how is your air filter/
yes the fan runs and it will start again, but only lasts a minute. It will repeat the process a couple of more times. The filter is good/clean.
is this a condensing furnace? (does water drain out of it)
There is a drain pipe connected to it. The manual troubleshooter says to clean the flame sensor. However, I do not know where the flame sensor is.
usually the flame sensor affect it earlier in the cycle but it could be, and would be good to clean it anyway
it is a steel rod stuck in the flame, with ONE wire going to it
it can be removed and cleaned with steel wool or scotchbrite
OK, I can find that now. I have heard there is a manual reset button. Is that true? Would that work?
the only reset button on gas furnaces is usually the flame roll out switches, near the flame rail
other than that not really, oil burners have manual resets, maybe thats what you have heard of?
I would clean the flame sensor first, and also blow out all the condensate hoses
(and the barb fittings the hoses connect too) if the condensat cannot drain fast enough it will turn the flame off as well
Will do. Thanks
you should have a trouble code on the control board, and then a code legend somewhere on one of the doors to tell you what the code means
unless its an early electronic board, then it may not have a light
