Customer Question

my rheem criterion wont even try to light the burner
JA: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?
Customer: since last night. I am having work done in my kitchen and the drywall guys fired up the heater real high in order to help dry the mud
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: the service guy that does my work is out of town for two days so the answer is yes, if I can I replaced the thermostat this morning and that didn't work
JA: Just to clarify, do you think this is a larger HVAC problem, or something specific to the thermostat?
Customer: I no longer think this is a thermostat issue
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: not that I can think of. My service guy thinks it is a a limit switch somewhere
