1. Hey y'all,

    Just as a quick reminder, the forum is not a place to discuss hot topics like religion & politics & all those things that make people cranky. With that said, in light of how much news is coming directly from politicians and the fact a lot of folks come here as their daily watercooler I want to note sharing news/information is totally understandable/welcome (as long as it's not chem trail conspiracy theories or homoerotic frogs).

    However, please leave the commentary/opinion out of it. There is no room in my massive stockpile of hand sanitizer for hot takes.

    Love you all dearly, wash your hands before touching the daily thread, and consider this your "how we're keeping you safe" e-mail from TV. Thanks.

    Make sure that the panel is securely on the furnace. The panel you take off to do work or jiggle wires or replace fuse or whatever has a safety mechanism so that if the panel is taken off, the furnace won't run.

    Also Check/replace fuse.

    That's about all I know

    Same. I was ridiculously proud of myself the first time I managed to take apart the pipes under our kitchen sink to clear out a spaghetti blockage. But PVC pipes are easy and just screw together. Anything more complicated than that, pass, because I have nightmares of causing a flood when I miss something silly.

    @purplepotato
    Since you mentioned blowing up, I assume this is a gas furnace. Gas furnaces all have a bunch of safety things so you don't blow yourself up. Basic operation for them though is 1. thermostat decides the temperature is too low, and 2. sends a signal to the furnace, which 3. starts heating up a wire to the point where it's glowing hot. Once that wire gets hot enough, then the gas kicks on and all the blue flames jump up. Once the flames are up, the glowing wire turns off and the blower motor engages. It's a step by step process, and every step needs to complete before the next one starts, otherwise it's a fault condition. If you watch that cycle and see where it is stopping, it might help you narrow down where the issue is.

    Thanks a lot, that's really helpful! It's oil actually, but I'd assume the general process would be the same, yes?

    Probably pretty similar, except the oil is what burns instead of the gas. I don't know how exactly that part of it takes place unfortunately.
