No

I furnace fails, the light should flash indicating what failed. If you can obtain a meter we can do some testing though.

I see no one has assisted you yet.

We would need a meter to troubleshoot. You can get an inexpensive one at Walmart for about 15 bucks if you would like to troubleshoot and I would be happy to guide you.
