1. Please provide model on furnace

2.Your furnace should have an led light or a couple of led lights on control board that will give us a pattern such as 2 blink pause or 3 blink pause if there is an issue with furnace. Turning power off and back on of course resets board until next failure. Watch and as soon as blower keeps running when it should have stopped, look through small inspection window in blower panel and count the number of flashes between pausing.That will tell us where to start troubleshooting
