tempermental ignition - furnace


Hi,

i have a furnace that is about 16 yrs. old. Recently it will come on and blow cold air. If you turn the swich for power off momentarily, and then
turn it back on ,the burner ignites and it cycles fine.

it will go for a day or so working fine. then the same thing happens. i've replaced the batteries in thermostat, and run it on program . it works fine in either mode until it missfires



thanks,

T-bone

Next time it stops working, before turning power off. Look for a flashing ED light through the blower panel sight glass. Then look for the legend on the back of that panel.
