    Evidently the problem lies elsewhere or there is more than one problem.

    A temporary fix for this involves the mixing together of 1 part rum and 3 parts Coca Cola. :D


    The root problem may not be in the furnace after all, it could be a power quality problem causing a failure in the furnace.

    In a properly designed and built unit all parts are equally likely to fail. If not, there may be a factory-published Technical Service Bulletin detailing the design defect and the recommended fix.

    Strategies:
    -Educated guess (you might get lucky) or
    -Uneducated guess (may be costly and it still isn't fixed) or
    -you take a reading, decide what it means on the spot and proceed from there (reduces uncertainty in deciding what the problem is), or
    -other?
