It was nice out today so, I went out and took some panels off, cleaned it up a bit, took some screws and things out, and photographed what I found during this hour of tinkering with it.

or: HVAC pictures by junknstuff_photos - Photobucket
I noticed the "litttle motor" is very hard to turn and appears to have locked up causing a "short" that fried the orange wire that goes to the sensor covering the three gas burning elements shown in the photo labeled "HVAC018.jpg" which lead back to the electronics board that also appears to have been damaged as the result of a short. (See the close-up in HVA023 and the entire board in 24).
I was able to find out HVAC013 is a "smartvalve" which appears to have sustained excessive temperatures as well....the plastic is melted in some spots.
Found two smaller gauge blue wires melted together leading to the igniterl. I can hear you pros already telling me to junk this puppy, but there is no way I can afford to replace it anytime in the near future ... any ideas, suggestions or information on this would be greatly appreciated. Even if it is a link to more specific information to this unit.
Currently- with great reluctance -when I supply power it does nothing, but continue to play dead. The AC side does nothing as well. 5 amp fuse on the board is not blown to my amazement.

Thanks for your time,
