    save your self the money and hire a professional.

    that could be a simple problem or even a real complicated one...

    It's not a control board issue, and what it is leads in to stuff that is DIY and against forum rules pertaining to working inside the unit. Save yourself some time/pain/heartache and call a professional out before you hurt yourself or cause a larger costing problem then what it already is.

    Most all techs that have been through one winter, experience what makes a motor continue to run, this is usually a really simple issue. I am sorry you changed the board, but most issues we have with a furnace is not the board at all.

    Why did you pay someone if they did not fix it? I never charge anyone anything period if I can't fix it, it just goes with the territory.

    Since you have not paid him, Call him back out and show him it is not working still. If they run a decent show they will fix it before asking to be paid.

    I have called him back and he said it was fixed when he left and I had to pay before he would come back and honestly I think I was sold a bad part

    Think twice before calling him back out.
    He couldn't fix it right the first time, what makes one think he'll be any smarter or competent, the second time.
    From your description, he's a "shot-gunner".
    This is a term used to describe a repair person, who doesn't diagnose or use things like voltmeters or gauges, and just guesses at the problem. He/she will start replacing parts until the problem is solved. Oh they they tend to start with the "complicated" parts such as control boards and tstats.
    Call, him up, offer to pay bill minus labor to cover cost of new part you received, ask for old control board back (its always nice to have a spare) and be done with him.
    Then find a new tech.
