Yes, and those regulars by and large have already demonstrated that they are pros--though perhaps not in the same field. As such, they're not the average DIY'er who's going to pump you for info and then use it to blow himself up. Usually.

Nothing wrong with extending a little professional courtesy to fellow professionals.

Re: Heater From Hell


My bad mood was a result of a call I went on earlyer today. Some DIY a.. Hol.. jumped out the High limit on a furnace. I was hired by the Insurance company to investigate the fire that started in the furnace.

Two little kids in the hospital and a dead dog. The Kids were released the same day. the house is repairable smoke damage theoughout. \

I am so tiered of people who think if you jump it out or put a cap on it (boiler relief valve) and it will be oky doky.

I have investigated three fires in the last five years and it makes me sick to think of that Joey lunch bucket is still out there. And Handy man Negry who dosn't have the skil to do a real job thinks he can fix a potecialy deadly Hi-tech peace of mechanical equiptment with nothing but duct tape and gut intuition or am I just over reacting.

Personally, I welcome the diy questions from CT regulars. We all seem to have our own idiosyncrasies, and that is a common thread amongst us. Not only that, there may be a young or old hvac dog checking out this site, and can get something from the diy questions. So guys, I say bring it on. No such thing as a dumb question.

Cheer up doc, it's all good.
I have a question to save the real pro a wasted trip maybe. I have a Trane xv95 that will not fire. The led code is:

Two green flashes
Then red
Then red and green together
Then red
Then red and green together

Re: Heater From Hell


Back of the blower panel should have the legend for the error codes.
