New to the board & need furnace advice...


Just a little update for anyone who's interested...

Thermocouple is replaced. Pilot is burning a strong blue flame. Transformer is replaced & volt meter is showing the proper reading. Gas valve is replaced. Fuses are fine. Thermostat is replaced. Burners are still not firing... :wall:

We give up, and are calling a repair tech, or installing a new furnace... Over a week now with no heat. Thanks for all of the advice though, we really tried to DIY... I feel like I lost a war

did you jump the thermostat down at the furnace...that would be R to W if labeled or on a terminal strip,it should just be 2 wires in a brown covered wrap coming down from the stat upstairs...just pinch them together see if you get HEAT.pull the sta off the subbase and check the wires for any voltage this will proof the run up to the stat is solid you can jump it up there to see if it runs from the space wires.

Pinch the wires together before they go to the transformer?

follow the wires that come into the unit from the stat there should be 2 thin ones they wire nut into the burner controls and transformer or land onto a terminal strip R to W.... just jump them together your the STAT now doing that...or do the jump up on the subbase that is the same control wires R to W...NOTE when you take the wire nuts off to pinch them together,make sure the wires within each nut are twisted then pinch them your closing the control circiut just as the stat would.
