Furnace n0000oooo....
« on: Sun, 21 February 2021, 12:03:20 »
Woke up froz cold.

Be like whaaaa...gon'rong.

Chk furnace, it be blown' cold air.

4 blinking lights, " thermal limiter open "

ffffffffffffffffff................../ maximum h8 mode activate.


Checked thermal limiter switch, indeed, it won't reset.  Bridged the leads, blue flame fires.

Sigh...


Now must wait 2 days in suprcol  for switch.   IF Tp run the furnace without the limiter, assssuming it's just the switch that's broken,  Tp should probably no die. but welllll it is a gas appliance

THOUGHTS ?   Should Tp just run it w/ safety off ? Is that even legal ?

Anyone else I'd suggest putting on a coat as it can't be colder in than out but do you even own one?

If you blow up from a gas explosion, your post count will be surpassed at some point.  This cannot happen.  Call to get on a list for repair.  Make a tent and keep warm.  Remember, no cotton for sleeping.  Don't wanna sweat and lose precious heat.

Here's the p00r person engineering thought..

Tp dun' think the sensor tripped.. it MAY just be corrosion..  perhaps Recent xcapadz into Humidifying has accelerated oxidation on an already old-sensor.. no ?  imagining it ?  it sounded reasonable when Tp thunk it....

Xplodz ?

The radon outside air inlet is right next to the furnace, so it's getting a mix of cold wintry air + the normal air of the house,   Can't really see that it'd overheat in the winter.   The intake filter was changed only in late Jan, flow rate should be gud.

Imagine if off-topic posts counted toward the total !
The problem is deeper than reporters asking tough questions of both sides, but the view of politics these questions reflect. Simply put, this view is the one that Trump rode to victory on and built his cult with.
Democrats and progressives want politics to be about policies that will help Americans and solve problems; Trumpists want to make politics about lies, insults, personalities and tribal warfare, so that the American people continue to believe that politics is just a sideshow that has nothing to do with their lives.
Journalists should hold politicians accountable on both sides of the aisle, but they should do so in substantive ways, not by asking irrelevant questions that look more like gotcha oppo research than substantive questions about policy. At a deeper level, the choices that journalists and media companies make right now will have an important impact on whether we as a nation are able to rise from the destruction of January 6th to revitalize our democracy, or to slide helplessly into fascism.
