Really as a professional that is your answer

I hope I didn't pay five dollars to get you to apologize for this being even more of a rip off
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I'm not paying a dime over the five dollars that I was conned into this morning over 12 hours ago when it said I would get a response on 8-10 min an now it's after 5 pm an I just now get an answer reply that had nothing to do with the question
So if me replying to your apology is suppose to mean I accepted your answer an they try to charge me 28 dollars for that I will deny all charges
I want this on the record because this is total bullshit rip-off
I have an emergency situation an this app steals from me I am pissed that it's such a con that they are even allowed to remain on line as a legal service
HVAC Technician: BillyHvac, Journeyman HVAC Tech replied 1 year ago

I am sorry you are so distraught.

I am just a technician who works during the day and does this when I can. I occasionally find questions when I log on that have been unaddressed. I know when I take the question I will be greeted with a less than nice or less than professional attitude....but I always check to see if they still need help. I could let go like others but the question would not be addressed.

Now as far as your ignitor, and feel free to consider this no charge advice -

If the furnace is near a dryer, lint can be a cause.

If the unit is short cycling...like a dirty filter, dirty sensor...things that make the furnace stop and restart multiple times in one cycle are the usual culprits.

Example - the furnace starts, faults during cycle and restarts.

The ignitor does 4 years work in a month.

Another common issue...the circuit board leaves the ignitor at times instead of turning it off.

I wish you the best. And I am forwarding to customer service.

Billy
