    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?

    I don't know about the best way but the bravest way is with your tongue.

    Mr. Farris,

    I have just recieved your email. It would be extremely helpful to the Mod Team if you would completely fill out your profile, then we would not mistake you for a H/O looking for DIY help.

    Also if you are a Pro you should read this

    and apply here

    Once we recognize you as a Pro we will help you all we can.

    When in doubt run it out.

    Lets just say that you are a tech and the problem is a short in your t-stat wire. You should know how to at least narrow down to the wire with the short. If you cant find the kink with in arms length of the furnace then I would replace the whole run. It works for me everytime I have a short in the low- voltage wire.
    If your not getting the results you desire then change. People change from either desperation or inspiration.
