Customer Question
Furnace shuts off without...

Furnace shuts off without reaching goal temp. Will restart if power turned off and on. Filter has been changed

Contractor's Assistant: Did you check the furnace's filters?

New filter installed. Helped some but not completely. Weather is very cold-could this matter?

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

Maybe. It depends what is needed.

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

We bought this house with furnace this year. No experience in prior heating seasons

Can you look inside the burner compartment on label on side panel and get me the model on your furnace? Then when it should be on but is not, look in blower compartment and see if there is an error light blinking that will guide us in determining what is failing with the furnace.)Not if no peep hole and you have to remove blower panel to see control board, it will be necessary to hold door switch in to have power to board)
