    Furnace shuts down starts only after off switch
    Our Furnace comes on and only runs for a minute or so... the first fan comes on and it sounds like water in the fan... we have a humidifier on side... then the blower fan comes on and it only runs for a few doesn't get up to the tempter we set it too.( tried themo and old mercury Switch style)

    It only comes on when we reset the furnace switch... it is getting very cold.

    Thanks in advance

    Is sounds like water is backing up inside the system. Make sure all the drain lines are clear and that the flue is not trapping water if it has any horizontal runs

    Same symptom, cleaning the water drain line fixed it.
