So we have a 1981 Bigfoot
17 that we are currently having a furnace
problem with. It's worked great in the past (albeit the fan is pretty loud and it can be a pain to get the pilot light
lit...but I don't think this is uncommon for this age of Bigfoot).
started right about several weeks ago but when we went to turn it on last week, nothing. The pilot light
is on and the thermostat makes the 'click sound' when the lever is pushed up, but the furnace
just isn't powering up. It isn't a problem with the battery
- we have solar
panels that had the battery
nice and charged up last week, and today we are plugged in. We've checked the wiring on the thermostat (the ones we can see) and nothing appears to be loose. Both propane
tanks are full and we've had no problem lighting
the stove or pilot lights
on oven and fridge
We haven't taken the back panel off yet to investigate from that angle, but I am just wondering if anyone has any insight or tips! We aren't experts but have done a pretty good of troubleshooting other problems and figuring them out, but this is one is stumping us.
Thanks in advance!
