    Tempstar 95% furnace is short cycling

    I have a tempstar furnace. 95%. I it will run for 5 minutes then the flames kick out. The fan will continue to run for a couple minutes then it will fire again. Nothing is blocked. Filters are clean. I even ran it with out any filters or anything thinking maybe there was an airflow issue. It will did the same thing. Pressure switch was replaced, but didn't help. Somebody had a thread about this same problem 3 years ago. Any help? and if by chance that guy sees it, did your problem get fixed?

    Time for a call to a service professional for a system check.
    The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing the greatest amount of free meals and stamps EVER.
    Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us to "Please Do Not Feed the Animals". Their stated reason for this policy "... the animals become dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves."

    Sounds like an air flow issue. Have a tech check static pressure and temperature rise.

    Systems will lose airflow over time due to dirty components within the unit, failing motors, duct work problems, and restrictive air filters.

    It is the techs jobs to perform a series of test to determine which one it is, and correct the problem.
    Instead of learning the tricks of the trade, learn the trade.
