    Gas valve remains on
    I have a coleman evcon gas furnace mod.7970c856. I have problems with gas valve staying on after thermostat kicks out. It also over heats without limit switch kicking it can the solenoid in the valve still have power? Its not the valve or the thermostat because both have been replaced 3 times.?

    Valve sticking? Voltage still being applied to keep valve open? Wiring wrong?

    You need to call a professional. What you have here is a very dangerous situation that you are not qualified to check out or repair.

    Anyone trying to give you information on this unless at your home would be a fool. Turn off the gas and call for service.

    There is a relay that could also be sticking. Check it with a meter, don't just guess like you have been doing.
