    I've been following this thread. Seems like we all learned something. I can apply this to many other issues now. Thanks for posting the results.

I have tried all the same tricks I tried last year, did research online including forums and youtube, yet cannot troubleshoot. Anyway, last year, the first place I called came out and barely took a minute or two to even look inside the panel and told me that he recommends a whole new system due to it being as old as it is. Paid 100 bucks for that; nice! Next tech( and I use the term loosely) actually did look inside for a few minutes and did actually do some testing with a multimeter, but the same was told to me. This only cost $50; what the hell, people! Last one, after getting advice from someone about a part to check/maybe change, actually came out and recommended the same thing, but never showed the next day with the part! Guy stiffed me! Got a hold of a friend of a friend of a friend, whose neighbor does a little work.......you get the idea, told me to check a couple of things. Ordered a part online, I believe it was called a vacuum switch, and it perked right up and started blowing nice, comfy heat. Now, it will not light again for the start of the season, and have been up to the thermostat, down to the breaker box and underneath to try the furnace, over and over, in all combinations. I do not want, nor can I afford to have a completely new system installed, so what do I do? Tired of calling HVAC "salespeople" and no technicians showing up. I am getting uncomfortably cold at night and am out of ideas. Who can I call? Who can I trust? I live in the Northwest GA area.
    The induced draft proving switch you mentioned attaches to the induced draft assembly via a rubber tube, the barbed port on the assembly will obstruct with carbon and does require reaming out periodically.Name:  2013-02-02_115957_wl5c8z.jpg

    I just found this video all these years after he posted it. This guy knows what he is talking about. I had the exact symptoms he induced here, and it literally took me longer to find a short enough screwdriver than it did to fix the furnace. AND IT WORKED! House was at 57 and going down. Now the temp is going up. THANK YOU!
