    Bryant Quietline heating issue

    Bryant Quietline central unit (easily 40 years old but still 'works.') What has been happening recently is the burners will kick on and stay lit for about 2 minutes. The burners will kick on - the fan will start shortly after - the burner will run for about another minute and then shut off while the fan runs for about another 3 or 4 minutes.

    This will repeat about ever 10 minutes.

    A/C works - just this heating issue.

    Thanks

    Call your HVAC pro.

    Yes - I understand that a tech needs to look at it. I was looking for an educated guess as to some possible issues.

    What's the point of this forum?

    Yes, this unit is 40 years old and still works fine. Yes, a professional needs to take a look at it.

    All obvious and useless answers.

    Does anyone have some possible reasons given the symptoms?

    'Get a new one' and 'call a tech' [as brilliant and full of knowledge as they are] are completely pointless and do not help out in the least.

    First of all, you didn't state a question in your original post. That's beside the point. As the previous post stated, no DIY here and no one can troubleshoot your furnace from here. You did see the forum rules when joining, didn't you? The purpose for this site is there as well so that answers the question you did ask.
