Hi,I have a coleman model 3500a811 that will not start up.

Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

It stopped a few days ago and then started working again and now does not work

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

The fan does not come on when I turn it to fan on the thermostat

Contractor's Assistant: Just to clarify, do you think this is a larger HVAC problem, or something specific to the thermostat?

Maybe just the thermostat,originally thought it was the sequencer, but I am not getting power apparently because the fan will not come on
