Hello, looking for a little advice. A few weeks ago we had a bad lightning storm. Since then our furnace will not fire, or even attempt to fire. After talking with tech from the company, we have narrowed it down to no power running through the limit to L2 wire in our aquastat. The temp display is also blank on it. We were told to replace the aquastat. However, this is an almost $200 part, and money is a little tight at the moment. Most places charge almost $100 just to agree to come look at it, so I am trying to get as much advice as I can before calling someone in.
I have had a few people tell me that they don't think that the aquastat is the problem, and that the furnace should attempt to fire even if it is bad and that something else is causing the issue. When we open the bleeder, nothing comes out except a few drops, I was told that it's because the pump is not kicking on which is not caused by the aquastat.
The furnace is only about 5 years old.
I don't know that much about furnaces and unfortunately, my fiancé does not either, we have researched and researched things online which does get a little confusing and articles contradict each other. Any advice of things we can check or try would be greatly appreciated.
