Customer Question

Well, hello Craig.
JA: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?
Customer: I have a Kenmore DC 80 furnace. It stopped working. The programmable thermostat had dead batteries, so I replaced those and re-programed the thermostat. No luck. Checked the fuse. It's ok. Looked everywhere for a re-set button, no luck.
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Kenmore is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: How to start it up. Seems fairly new.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: it was in the house when I bought the place about 5 years ago.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: Not that I can think of.
