.The warantee had just expired.We hadpaid for & had done an annual service of check; clean& tune up "everything fine" . 18 months ago, ( same problem) we replaced the circuit board, still under warantee but cost $200+ ) This time 3 service calls& multiple service suggestions,still no heat! Gasbill( heat was$80+ month A SR. SERVICE TECH was to comeout to confirm the 4th tech's guess as to 2 other parts needing replacement; remember warantee has expired by now.
