resetting flame roll out
Hope these pics come out if not I will resend them. Went on a call last saturday lady had a contractor out like 3 times within 2 weeks. She called me and I went out there lady explained that she has to keep resetting the flame roll out switch She explained that she mentioned this to other contractor and all they did was replace parts every time they came out. They told her to keep resetting flame roll out switch and to keep calling them back but they were charging her for each time they came back and still wasn't fixing problem. They also said her filter was restricting air flow. As I was watching her burners burn the blower fan came on and was shooting flames back out of furnace here is why and why they said her filter was restricting air flow.

Thats a nice little crack in the heat exchanger.When you do a job, Always make it easier for the next guy, because you may be the next guy working on it.

The box laying on top of heat exchanger is what I found when I replaced furnace in between the evaporator coil. Wonder why heat exchanger cracked and had poor air flow This was a Lennox 14 years old.

Did you send the pictures to the other contractor? lolIf more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

I had a call very similar to this. After I replaced the heat exchanger I brought it up to the previous service company carried it in the door and asked to speak to the service manager. Told him that his service man missed this twice. His response to me was "You can change heat exchangers?". The good news is they refunded the customers money and went out of business 6 months later. This company was the small company of the year by the BBB.
