no power to furnace, need help getting to fix myself

I'm need of some help troubleshooting a gas furnace problem. My furnace completely lost power this past weekend, after troubleshooting I determined that the breaker went bad. I replaced the breaker and the furnace worked perfectly. Now 2 days later it lost power again? The unit is a Payne high efficiency furnace, I don't have the specifics of the unit with me since I'm at work right now. Any help would greatly appreciated, sorry for being vague about situation.

What is the cause of the recent power loss? Start at the circuit panel and trace the power. Is there power at the outlet connections of the breaker? Is power making it to your furnace?

A loose neutal can cause problems which are often hard to troubleshoot without good technique. Be sure to check power both to ground & neutral. There should be no difference.
