Let's just get the disclaimer out of the way first: many homeowners may lack the tools, the experience and the ability to mess around with their heating system. I certainly understand that and agree: I leave most things to the pros. On the other hand, if you wake up in a blizzard and find yourself without heat as I did this morning, there are a few things that you might want to try before you give up and call for repair. Even if you can't fix the problem yourself, you may be able to determine at least some information about what is causing the malfunction, and that information can sometimes be very useful to the people who will ultimately come to fix it. As I said, we had a nasty snowstorm last night.
It wasn't a lot of snow, but what came down was wet, heavy and sticky. Of course the wind was howling too; high winds are what defines a storm as a blizzard. At 5:30, I hauled myself out of bed. The power had come on again, so I walked to the living room to turn up the thermostat.
We keep the heat dialed way down overnight; it is programmed to turn back up at 6:00 AM, but I was up earlier as noted. I turned it up and the furnace did kick in. I went to the kitchen and snagged a yogurt from the fridge. I had barely got to the drawer where we keep the spoons when the electricity went off again. Just a few moments later, it kicked in again and shortly after that I heard the furnace start up. Weslo Cardio Glide Manual there. I sat down at my computer and started some work.
Perhaps a half hour later, the lights went out again. This time, they stayed out until just before my wife got up—possibly the chirping phone-setup message woke her up this time. We both sat down at our computers after eating a banana and a few nuts.
A few hours later, my wife noticed that the house was getting cold. I got up to look at the thermostat and saw that it should have been calling for heat, but the furnace was not responding.
I shut the thermostat off and turned it back on, dialed down the temperature and dialed it back up, but got no response from the furnace. I could hear the relays click in the thermostat, so I suspected it was not the culprit and moved on to look at the furnace itself. The covers on these units are a pain to take off and put back on. I have to do that when I change the filters and it is never fun, so my first attempt at fixing our lack of heat was to open the home circuit breaker cabinet, find the one marked 'Furnace', and shut it off. I counted to ten, turned it back on, and was rewarded with the sound of the furnace kicking in. That's good, I thought, and went back to my work. 1980 Mitsubishi Rosa Bus Manual. Unfortunately, it was not good: after the long air purge cycle, which is designed to blow out any lingering explosive gases that might have found their way into the ducts, the furnace did not fire.
