My middle ages furnace burner wont light.
I have 5 wires on an old mercury honnywell thermostat.
R is hot or power
Jump R to Y starts the AC unit.
Jump R to G starts the fan.
Jump R to W will not light the burner, the pilot light is well lit and burning strong.
O on the thermostat goes to C on the terminal at the furnace?
It is a damper furnace, but I believe the dampers are all manually controled outside the unit.
I'm trying to avoid an $XX service call, like the $XX I spent last summer just to have the tech show me where the levers are and how to move them, I have never seen anything as old as this furnace, except for me that is.
Does anyone have any suggestion as to what else I can try or check before I get the check book out?
(No pricing, due to site rules )

IF IT'S SO OLD THAT YOU ACKNOWLEDGE IT,......it would probably pay for it's self in savings on fuel bill by replacing it.What are you waiting for.....thay ain't getting any cheaper to buy.That's just my opinion,.....and i would agree with the others and make the call....

Baldy is being real nice to the guy just because he wants the old Luxaire label."And remember my sentimental friend......that a heart is not judged by how much you love, but by how much you are loved by others" - Wizard of Oz.
