I read some questions asked by others about adding a remote...

    I have an old Sears Power Miser 80 Furnace and the fan blower won't turn on when the thermostat is set to "Fan Auto". The furnace ignites, the Fan Limit Control spins around while heating up and when it hits the fan notch, nothing happens. Eventually the furnace will reach the shut off notch and...

    I've replaced all the outlets and switches in my house, so I'm fairly comfortable and confident in these matters, but that may have been my downfall this time around.
