    Furnace only remains on a few minutes
    The furnace will turn on and run for approximately 5-10 minutes. Upon igniting, the blower will soon kick on. After the said 5-10 minutes, the blower will kick off and the damper door will remain on with no flame and will not reset by itself. I manually have to turn it on and off. I would greatly appreciate any insight as to what the issue may be, as I have come to a few conclusions myself but I do not have experience working on furnaces.
    Thanks for any help.

    It sound like a limit is opening. The trick is witch one. Your furnace should give a fault code when it malfucntions. Count the blinking light on the control board of the furnace. The code should be on the front or back of the blower door.

HI, I have a furnace that won't stay in. The blower keeps blowing, but the heat cuts out because the flames get shut off every two minutes or so. Over the summer, we remodeled and streamlined the duct work. We eliminated lots of big runs that absorbed all the heat. Now, though, I think we...
