Welcome, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do my best to help you with your issue.It sounds like you hit the manual fan ON button on the fan/limit control
That shouldn't affect anything other than running the fan manually. We would have to do some trouble shooting to figure out why the furnace isn't working now. I assume the house is getting cold?
Would you like to try some trouble shooting?
Ok, let me know when you're ready
Ok, is this oil or gas fired? do you have a multi-meter?
Well that will limit what we can do. Does it have a pilot that's lit all the time? does it have a fan on the exhaust?
I'm talking about a fan on the exhaust vent not the blower that moves air through the vents. Is the exhaust fan running?
and you have a draft inducing fan on the exhaust?
You can post a picture here by clicking on the paper clip icon in the tool bar at the top of this dialogue box. You can only do this from a PC or a Mac not a phone or a tablet. I'd like to see where the exhaust connects to the furnace and this white button you hit
I assume you checked the breaker in the electrical panel
Glad it's working
The blower usually doesn't come on until the unit heats up on older models
So you're all set?
