Question More Specific and Detailed Info Requested

Hello mistered39. Welcome to the Heating Furnaces forum topic and the Do It Yourself Web Site.

If the problem did not exist prior to replacing the hot surface ignitor, than during the replacement of the igntior something happened to cause the problem. Our problem is knowing more details and answers to questions, so we can help further.

Was there no problem prior with the furnace until the hot surface ignitor (HSI) was replaced????

Would also have to know what fuse it is of how many on the board and what system the fuse protects? Any devices on the furnace not working that where prior to the incident???
