Either no one can help, no one wants to try or everyone is busy reading
all those paranoia posts. No one has offered any ideas or suggestions
for resolving my Payne furnace problem. I posted it over 24 hours ago.
If any one might be interested yet, I'd be interested in hearing from
you. The post is on the 24th with subject: Pain Furnace, er I mean
Payne. Thanks, I hope! Kayle
They must be related to Edwin and Greg over here, then. Whatever, I
appreciate all the suggestions and directions. Nothing like getting
cranky and whiney to garner some attention.

Check Edwin's posting history before you jump to conclusions........
You've got a fair number of replies (to the 2nd post) but realize the
"silence" can come from all sorts of reasons.
I didn't reply to your first post because I'm not a furnace fixer &
had nothing constructive to offer. :(
btw 24 hours is not all that long to get an answer
you can have it:
fast, cheap or good......pick two
Also I did'nt think about the possibility that this time of
year,,posting a furnace question,,,Kayle might have ice hanging from
the old boo boo wich could cause a bit of impatience!
Mean bunch? How's that? Do they give people crap for working on their
own furnaces? I posted a ? there months ago and got a possible answer..
Sorry, I wish I could help you but I'm not familiar with this product
line (nor am I all that knowledgeable about the inner workings of gas
and oil furnaces in general). Hopefully someone who is can offer you
For those who may have missed it, it might be helpful to repost your
original message in its entirety.

It is probably sensing that the gas flow is insufficient to support the
flame, so it shuts down the main valve.
I had one lately do exactly this behavior, and it turned out that there was
large amounts of water condensing inside the gas line and settling in a low
spot. The gas flow was reduced by bubbling through what was effectively a
liquid trap. Drained the water, had to shut the power off and back on so
the computer gadget would reset, and then everything was back to normal.
There could be other reasons, though, for reduced gas flow.
Here is the original post:
This ol' furnace has been acting up for a month or so. It's a
but I can not find the model number, nor do I know how old it is.
red light is doing a 3/4 blink sequence and everything works up to the
burner staying on. The fan ends up blowing coolish air for a minute
so, then the whole thing starts over again and eventually after
attempts the burner stays on and warm air gets blown. Tonight this
on for over an hour without any heat being made, so I shut it all
Any ideas? Should I try restarting it? There is no gas odor, but is
there still a risk? I have plenty of warm woolies to put on, but
kinda scratchy and company is due Saturday. Any help would be
appreciated! Thanks, Kayle
Not sure what 'all of this' was addressed 2 weeks ago, but that's ok.
I'm happy to report I now have consistent heat due to a right-on
suggestion from the link Dean offered. (hvac.mechanic.com) I'm
extremely grateful for lists/groups like this one (alt.home.repair) for
exactly the results I got. Even if I couldn't have fixed it, I would
have been more knowledgable when calling upon a technician to service
it. I hope I can return the favor at some point. Meanwhile, my humor
is warming up and I appreciate ALL the replies and thank you for them.
One problem is you're posting via Google Groups - that's a no-no.
GG can take over three days to propagate posts and responses.
Use a real (i.e., not web-based) news reader. Outlook Express, which you
already have, will work quite well.
