Hey there I just wanted to say I found the problem with the water in the furnace. It was leaking down the side of the furnace from the outlet of the trap pipe and onto the power wire going into the side of the furnace that is how it was getting into the furnace. I understand where you were coming from because of the liability involved and people tend to hurt them selves. I do the heating and ac work at our plant besides working on three 825 MW coal fired furnaces. Thanks anyway
Sorry you got jultzed. If you had given more background and information someone might have stepped up to the plate in spite of the umpires warning.
Unless I am mistaken only the ten commandments were carved in stone and those were misplaced. And, copies cannot be displayed in public places either.
you're not alone.
but sometimes things get thru:
Funny thing tho, go to any search engine with a question about HVAC and a link to this site will invariably pop up. One even refers to DIYers getting answers here.
Go figure. Unless you type in heating help, then you get 2 million links, some useful. That waitress should try that.

My point is, giving a homeowner or family member some help or assistance isn't always that bad. In most cases it should be stressed that professional help is recommended. I don't know how many times I have gone on a call (water, noise, etc) only to find some other serious problem that they are unaware of.
Sometimes a band-aid solution will get them by and commonsense may lead them to the phone book. Oh well.
