American Standard Freedom 78 issues. Please help.


Hi,

About two weeks ago I came home to a freezing house (56 degrees). A little harsh when you're use to 78 degrees. I noticed that the furnace was running but only blowing out cold air since there was no flame. I then turned the furnace off and back on. The furnace turns on and within about 10 seconds you get a flame but after about 5 more seconds the flame is gone. I tried this several more times until it actually stayed burning. Sometimes it will stay lit right away, sometimes it takes a few trys on its own, but occasionally it will not light at all and blow cold air until you shut it off. This seems to happen 1-2 times a day.

I have no knowledge or experience with furnaces (besides changing the filter), but DO NOT want to resort to hiring somebody. If anybody can help I would greatly appreciate it.

Furnace: American Standard Freedom 78
Model: TXC025C4HPB1
Does not have a LED light
Do not have a manual

Thanks,
Kevin
