I see I never posted an update. I was working out of town and my wife was shutting the furnace off and restarting it to keep the house warm. I got a repair man in. His theory was that if the cycle...

Wind gusts on the roof causing back pressure in the flue. This would not depend on the physical location of the actual furnace. That is what I meant. It makes sense to me, and I say it is a bad...

Someone on another thread stated this is caused by wind from a certain direction. That was my first reaction as the first time it was very windy.

Then I say that is a bad design. Wind was my first thought as the first time it happened, it was indeed very windy. Since where I am from, the wind is almost always from the west. I could see that...

The problem went away. The furnace has been working for more than a week now. This makes me think it is the mother board, as modern electronics is prone to doing wacky things.

The furnace has been running without problem for 3 days now despite not changing anything. This makes me think it is the board. I am afraid to leave the house unattended in case the furnace quits...

It appears the $120 spent has had no impact. The wife suspects that the furnace quits more often than before the mods. My next step will be to replace the mercury thermostat with a new fangled...

resolution?

That guy came and charged me $120. He set the thermostat for a longer cycle, thinks he might have cleaned the vacuum nozzle, and put a longer hose going to the pressure switch. The theory is that...

I made an appointment with some guy for Monday. The inducer does stop running sometimes. It is just difficult to sit by the furnace all day to see what happens when it stops functioning correctly. ...

Is it possible that the pressure switch has to open at some point in the cycle? What if the induction blower stayed on sometimes when it was supposed to be off. This would not allow the pressure...

And back to the low or intermitent vacuum. I agree that this could be a problem, but I still don't know why just pinching the hose would make the furnace start. If it is a case of intermitent...
