PostSubject: Good thing we were home   Thu Apr 01, 2010 6:15 am

The other night during the rain storm, Phyllis asked me to turn up the heat. I did and the heat never came on. Just before bed, pulled the front off the furnace to see water pouring in from the stack, and a burnt plastic smell. I shut the switch off, and did my best to dry everything off. Yesterday, I pulled the hot surface ingniter control out, and pulled the cover off to find a burnt section of the mother board about an inch long. I also got on the roof to find the silicone seal had split away from the stack, and allowed water to come in. F#@K! I guess we are lucky we were home and found the problem when we did. This could have went south real quick.

I guess I know what I am doing this weekend. Mad

2 things to mention

1) good thing you went and checked it out of you could have had a hell of a problem

2) good thing you know what your doing because you lost me with every detail that wasn't water, burnt plastic smell, or silicone seal Laughing

Yeh, I am sorry guys. I was speaking freaky deaky dutch. lol!

In other words, water hit the control for my furnace after finding it's way through a hole in the roof. It caught fire, and we found it before it became a 6 oclock news problem.

We got lucky. cheers
