A friend has a furnace with FG6GC 080C-16B model number. The heat does not come on and I have checked both the furnace flame igniter and furnace flame sensor with both appearing in good shape. A tech came out today to speak with my friend and told her it's the variable speed blower (the fan works) and wants $1400 to fix. If I look this up it's a $200 part and doesn't look very hard to replace. Thoughts?JA: Did you double-check the thermostat's settings? And what about the filters?Customer: Yes and the filters are fine/recently replacedJA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?Customer: yesJA: Anything else we should know to help you best?Customer: not that I am aware of.

I have a 40 year old GE furnace that I am having problems

I have a 40 year old GE furnace that I am having problems with. For example, if the thermostat is set at 74, and the room temperature is 71, the thermostat will indicate that the furnace is on but the furnace will not begin blowing warm air. If I shut the thermostat off and then turn it on again in an hour or so, the furnace will then usually start blowing. In short, it seems like the furnace isn't doing what the thermostat is telling it to do unless you reset the furnace a few times. I tried a new thermostat and the problem persists. What could the problem be?
