thermostat settings? I just had this cleaned for 1st time in 7 years. and we never had any problem. end of nov. guy said the electrodes needed to be replaced. so cleaning cost us 130$ then a week later the furnance turned off, and we had no heat that night. came to start it next day. $100. electrodes came in 2 days later. $137 for that. all this in roughfully 1 week.
