Wouldn't you know it. About a week or two ago, I came home from work, and the wife was complaining the furnace wouldn't come on. It was the Thursday B4 good Friday, and the nites were to be in the 20s. There was no way she was going to be cold. I hit the reset button on the burner, but the box just hummed, then quit talking. after trying a couple times, I began the process of putting priorities in order of how to attack this dilemma. One of them was to possibly refire the coal stove for the long weekend, till I could acquire some potential or necessary parts. i really was against this because #1, i just totally cleaned the stove for the season, and #2, I was out of Santa coal. And it wasn't available for days. Long story short, I checked the burner one last time, and not only was there a big red reset button on this electronic box, but I also just noticed the motor itself had a small red reset. Once I hit that, the furnace came to life, and all was good again.(I know, what caused the trip?).
Even tho the furnace is now up and running, I decided to hit my local supplier for a small "reserve emergency" stash of pea for just in case situations such as above.
I decided to give this Stockton brand a try, even tho the season is done.I picked up 4 bags, which is actually 200lbs cause each bag is 50lbs, and not 40, like the Santa coal. That's why the price went from $6-6.50 a bag to 8 something. i haven't tried it yet, but will keep you guys posted of the results.
