    I had a Goodman do that the other day, I could hear the switch pull in but the contacts were not making, I checked all the obvious stuff just to make sure, then put it a new switch. Works fine now.

    You should tell your Neice to turn the gas off with the cut off and immediately find a different contractor to take a look at the flue and correct it.

    Wall of shame fodder
    One way to outthink people is to make them think you think. They'll think you're not really thinking what you're trying to get them to think you think...........

    This is a condo with a bunch of units done exactly the same way. Why is it that his trade is so full of incompetent contractors playing with peoples safety? Look at the wall of shame and see how much is really out there. Maybe I can find out who the contractor is that did the work and threaten to sue them for not following any decent codes or safety regulations. You would think the gas company might have wanted to inspect the work before they energized the gas line.

    I'm not sure what that is either. I have never been to the house and only see the same pic your seeing.

    Is that even legal? I have never in over 35 years seen that, but I know each local does things a little different. In Houston the inspector would probably ticket you for being on crack.

    Whoever did that venting had their head up their flue.
