We/all of us can be helpful to these DIYers and noobies TO A POINT. THis is a DIY forum not a Pro forum after all. Not telling them how to bypass devices is one area to avoid and it is pretty hard to blow up a furnace with all the safety controls we have today. Asking them to post pics ALWAYS gets rid of the trolls and idiots. Try to remember when you guys started out/were apprentices and were humiliated by Journeymen. Didn't feel good did it. I try steer them in the right direction and educate them not tell them the solution right away. What goes around comes around.

Hey Yuri I just completed a Major Solar Project. Click on the Electrical tab and you will find it. I just posted some photos. Its pretty cool stuff. Our local electric company hooked it up a coupled days ago, so it passed inspection already.

Yuri, your are a generous person, but this gent panned himself as a tech.
So I think it's clear where the ones lies.

Nice project. Ya gotta be real careful on the net with your account name, have thick skin and ask very careful thought out questions that have a logic flow to them (reread them a couple times) or some people like to hammer others for entertainment. Thats life.

Post pics of the inside of your friends furnace/circuit board etc and we can talk you thru it. Need to study the wiring diagram carefully as the sequence of operation/control wiring can very from brand to brand and era to era. Sounds to me like the tstat is shorting and sending power to G which turns the fan on in AC mode. Remove the G wire and see if it stops.Does he have a heat pump or HRV heat recovery ventilator or ERV as those can be interlocked to G also. Go there and give it an honest try before getting back to us.

This sounds so stupid, but another friend of mine went out there today and hooked everything back up and it just started working. I asked what he did to fix it and he said he really did'nt know . Just rehooked up the wires and combustion,,,,,, So I guess this topic remains unsolved. Perhaps a bad connection or corrosive wire. Either way the problem is fixed.

we'll see.....a furnace does not heal as does a person. I'd be going over that furnace and cycling it 'till the fault showed up....but that's just me.

Are you comfortable with that? I wouldn't be. there are reasons for everything.

Faulty wire connections happen all the time, and it is a very common problem. But everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Now you guys wanna talk Solar Power and the Jargon to that, then we can see why I call myself a Tech............................................. I have alot of experience in 3 Trades Electric, HVAC/R, Plumbing, And Now Solar. I have my experience and I will have 2 AAS in less than a month in Industrial Technology, PLC's, Variable Frequency Drives and CNC's. and a TON of other classes. Thanks to all that helped me (Yuri) and the hell with the Yall, Guru OUT!!!!

I dunno...I am not the kind of guy who just leaves furnaces the way you describe.

One of the most important lessons I have been taught by my elders in this industry is you never stop looking for the fault.

I would be embarrassed if another guy came after me and got a furnace working. Your name is the biggest asset you own in HVAC if you are to succeed.
