Customer Question
My furnace stopped working...

My furnace stopped working on Friday. I set the thermostat to 72F, the temperature in the house is 65F and the furnace is not kicking on for 10 to 15 minutes. Then is runs for 10 minutes and stops. After 15 - 20 minutes I stop and restart the thermostat and the cycle repeats.

Contractor's Assistant: Have you tried power cycling the appliance -- unplugging it and leaving it off for a few hours?

You mean the furnace ?

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

I already called a technician. He twice thought he fixed it and 20 minutes after he left, it was once again the same.

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

The furnace is a Weather King from Feb. 2008

If you check the board in the furnace do you see any flashing error codes on it when it is not working?

I do not see any board. I am not a technician so if I need to open it ...???
HVAC Technician: HVAC Guru, HVAC TECH replied 3 months ago

Yes remove the panels on the furnace to get to the board the panels either lift off or there are just a couple screws to get them off.

OK if you can not get it a simple thing to check is make sure the furnace filter is clean.
