I have a rheem...

I have a rheem 80 super quiet furnace and noticed that there was no heat this morning .this has happened before and they replaced the flame sensor.

Contractor's Assistant: Did you double-check the thermostat's settings? And what about the filters?

I cleaned the flame sensor with steel wool, but it shut down again. Also there are 2 green lights when the furnace is properly working. now the left one blinks and you have to turn off and on again for it to run. I believe there is another type sensor on the left side of this furnace they cleaned?? Can you help.

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

Yes I do. I am not happy with the company that sold me this unit.

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

Can it be I did not clean the flame sensor properly?? I think I did . I do have a spare that looks clean, but I can not remember the name of that other sensor that I saw the repair man take out.
