I have a Gibson furnace
in my home that is about 6 years old. I had a problem last year that required a furnace repair
guy twice....having the same problem this year 4 times so far this last week. There is a small opening that gets some residue built up on it that needs cleaning out. A small grey tube has to be disconnected to clear out the residue. Is this a common problem, and is there a permanent solution?
JA: Did you check the furnace's filters?
Customer: New filters are installed regularly. You have to take the cover off to access the problem area in the lower left. I don't know what else to tell you; the furnace was installed by Charlevoix Heating and Air Conditioning, but they are no longer in business.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: I don't know what "work" needs to be done! I am not very mechanical and my husband is deceased. My son-in-law could help when he comes (usually once a week or so). I can also call my furnace "guy" to come and make the repairs. Would prefer to do this without major cost!
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: You may be aware of the problem as I have described. If you need a photo of the exact problem, I could take that and send it to you. I appreciate any help you can give me. It is cold up here in Northern Michigan, and not fun to be without heat!
