    Gas furnace shuts down before reaching requested temperature.

    I have an older Day and Night Gas furnace that will not keep running. It must be reset after a few minutes of running. Once reset, the blower will start up, followed by the gas being ignited by the pilot light. The furnace will run for a few minutes and then shut off, requiring the reset button to be pushed before it will start again.

    Check air filters and make sure furniture isn't blocking vents. Other than that it's time to call a pro.

    what are you "resetting"?

    as stated, call a pro before you cause damage, injury or worse.

    Could be a bad heat exchanger, and the reset you are pushing is a roll out switch that is doing its job and protecting you and your family. have it checked by a service company.
