Furnace quit in middle of night. -AC on display.
Wife said furnace went off sometime in middle of night.
Has a minus ac on the display of thermostat. She tried to turn it up and it wont kick on at all. Assumed thermocuple and its not letting gas kick on so the furnace can start. Thought I would post here real quick and see.
Im not home to grab model numbers or serial numbers of furnace or thermostat. Will be later tonight if you need it.
Check the circuit breaker.
If its tripped, reset opnce only. If it trips when you reset it, call a tech.
If the furnace works ok after resetting break, call and schedule a check up to find what caused the breaker to trip.
PS: Check if there is an emergency switch that got turned off accidentally.
thatnks for the quick response. I was not home last evening or this morning. On my way here in the next few hours.
will check panel in gargae. Would there maybe be circuit on furnace in attic somewhere?
That's as far as we can go with help. You have no AC power to your stat. You need a service technician.
This is not a DIY board.
Please review the forum rules.
Also check your filter if it is losing power through limit switch filter could be dirty and check filter anyways if it isn't this sympton. Dirty filter will cause loss of 24v to thermostat if it is tripping out on limit. Not sure what else to tell you without DIY which is not allowed here.
Dirty filter, tripped limit, WILL NOT cause loss of power to t'stat. Check any fuses or breakers and if those are ok, than call someone.

Perhaps you should have read the instructions before calling.

what others said and check bottom door of furnace to make sure its on right.
Maybe she switched the t-stat to a/c instead of heat. See that was easy.
We only want to do it, if we can do it right.

-ac on a chronotherm means no ac voltage to the R terminal...Most of them will say that even if they have battery backup...
