    Heating Unit Problem

    I noticed a problem when I would get home from work and the house would be freezing. I normally have the thermostat set so it will kick on at a certain time. So I changed the thermostat thinking the problem was that. After installing a new one, I experience the same thing.

    The heat works, however, not correctly. For example if it is reading that it is 71 degrees in the house, I can not raise it to 73. When I do the furnace starts up and then turns off. But when the temperature drops to say about 67-68 then it will kick on like normal and stay on until it has reached it programmable temp. But again, if I was to raise or override the current temperature, it will not turn back on. It seems the glow/ ignitor stick inside the furnace glows up, the burners get going, and then turns off.

    Any suggestions of what might be the case? It is a Lennox Elite unit. Any comments would be much appreciated.

    The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing the greatest amount of free meals and stamps EVER.
    Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us to "Please Do Not Feed the Animals". Their stated reason for this policy "... the animals become dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves."
