But pleas Shade, pull the top and look at the heat exchanger! I'm worried for your safety guy
on a serious note are you willing to teach a willing to learn individual what you are talking about in this post? pulling the top and looking at the heat exchanger? if i were to pull the heat exchanger what am i looking for? why am i looking in under the hood? and after i look in under the hood what are the faults to show a sign of whatever your concern is?

If you are willing to teach then teach! i am willing to learn! I believe i have showed not by this post alone but my many other posts that i am not dummy, always willing to learn something, never know i just might be teaching someone else something in the process!

So if it aint a trade secret: then what:whats up with this heat exchanger that has you worried for my safety and the safety of my family?

I am not going to hire a pro too look under the hood to tell me everything is ok. Thats rediculas at $110.00 hr diagnostics, plus $45.00 FUEL surcharge! Prices like this is why I am a DO-IT-MYSELF'R

WHAT AM I LOOKING AT AND WHY? What does this mean and why does it mean it? What is the function of this particular part, and why does it do what it does?

Not being a smart azz just tryign to understand what it does and why it does what it does to help me understand what kind of problem i am looking for, and why this is a health risk for my family and I?

Been raining here all day so havent been able to install new gas valve( got exchanged with no questions asked by the way), or the drip t" yet but if it quits raining then i wil lget them installed asap.

Think of what a pop rivet looks like.

Now picture the pop rivet trying to hold 2 pieces of metal together, when the head(ring) of the pop rivet is gone.

A crimp ring works simular.

Your cells should have a ring, about 1.5/8" OD, with about a 5/8" ID.
If any of them are missing, the cell is bad.

Gas meters as far as I know have no filters. The cutaway one I saw has two volume bags on a pivot and attached to a linkage. As one fills the other dumps into the gas line. If they had a filter it would plug up and ruin the accuracy of the meter. They are approved by the weights and measures dept. Not sure where all that crap is coming from but a drip leg may help. Sounds like your neighbor (Moses?) is very helpful. Amazing the details some people can remember. My neighbor remembers the exact day I changed her airfilter. I can hardly remember what I had for lunch.

Cheers

Thanks for the info about meters not having filters, so that just concurs that this problem should be on the gas-co.s side of the meter! Moses' is a very wise old man, sometimes aggravating (he dont like kids all that well) but other then that we get along just fine!
And i am with you on the memory; well you get the point! sometimes (ok well most of the time) not sure weather i am coming or going but does it really matter anyways? lol!

Thanks for the great help! much ablidged!

Do not take the gas valve apart that is not your problem,
you have a intermitten problem that is related to the age of
your system. Try cleaning your flame sensor, it is the little
metal rod at the opposite end of your burner rack from the
hot surface ignitor. Alot of times this will cause your furnace
to short cycle and then lock itself out and the fan will run until
you reset the furnace hence removing the panels and possibly
tripping a door switch of some sort which is like turning the power
on and off.
