    Try to turn furnace off and on at power switch or breaker.
    Did this do anything?

    Modern furnaces will lock out, either what's called a soft lock out or hard lock out, if it detects a problem 3 times.
    When this happens look for a diagnostic code on the circuit board. Typically a LED light flashing.

    I hope this will help speed up the process of you getting a faster more accurate response.
