Default Trouble not found

Por favor, what would you charge if
you have to go out (half hour drive),
poke around, no trouble found because it's intermittent,
and then leave?

He did point me in the direction of the inducer motor PC board and I eventually found the motor relay contacts were almost totally gone after 31 years and so I ordered a comparable relay from Digi-Key for $11, inclu. shipping.
I sanded what was left of the contacts so they might hold for the four days until the relay gets here.

Intermittent, is the worst. Years ago a friend of mine took over his granfather's radio repair shop. They had a really nice old consel radio from the 30s. Someone had dropped it off for repairs and told them to keep it until it quit so they could fix it. It never quit and when grampa tried to return it a few years later, the older couple had both died.
