My furnace was acting fine until one day about 2 weeks ago. What happens is that
the burner turns n as usual and heats up for about 10-15 minutes. Then the flame
shuts off and the blower continues to run (blowing cold air) until I shut of off
by the switch in the side. The metal box around the burner is too hot to touch.
Could it be overheating for some reason. In order to start it back up, I have
to push the reset switch and turn the switch back on. Then the issue occurs
again. So far I have had the unit tuned up and the burner was changed out. Any

Sounds like the fan limit switch is out of adjustment or gone
bad. It's supposed to stop the fan when the plenum temp drops
below the set point. That's assuming it's an old furnace
without modern electronic controls. And if it is, if you're
anywhere that needs heat even a modest amount of time, it's
probably terribly inefficient. If it's a modern furnace, then
I think they are done based on time now, not temp.
