    I've never had to do a job twice.

    And if you believe that, I've got a bridge for sale, just in case you're interested.
    A skilled Tech would solder a relay on that board and call it good to go.

    I've got something even better, a couple weeks ago I condemned a 90+ heat exchanger (under warranty) with a small crack I could feel with my finger nail but I swore there was another crack since it was leaking water from under the HX section. We had to tear the furnace out (horizontal in attic) and when we pulled half of it out I could see where the water was coming from.... Needless to say there was NO crack anywhere, the crack that I felt didn't go all the way through.

    a crack always goes entirely through. a manufacturing "line" may or may not go all the way through.

    where did the water come from?

    That's OK..... I once had to completely recover a 700 ton centrifugal chiller to replace a gasket I damaged in trying to remove a shorted oil heater element.

    Between the recovery, evacuation, and charging, I worked 40 hours to make a 15 minute repair to a $5 part.

    This was a mfr line that had rust around it, it seemed to go deeper than the rest of the line I could feel (and see no rust around),, but when you have an idea set in your mind you can feel anything..... The water was leaking in 2 places, one was obvious on the vent pipe, but the other was leaking down the inducer into a crevice I couldn't see until I took the furnace out.
