      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Furnace Cleaning

Recommended Posts

My Lennox furnace ignition has been tricky of late. I have had to flip the circuit breaker off and then on to get it to fire up. I called the company and they said it sounds like it just needs a cleaning. What will a cleaning cost me? I'd try a DIY, but a couple people have told me the Lennox furnaces are tricky.

Is there some kind of light codes that describe what check is being tripped in the circuit...assuming that's what it's.

What exactly is it doing?

I know I had an issue with my furnace recently (different brand I think) and it was just a pressure switch that had to be replaced (certain code would be displayed). Another time it was the flame sensors that were dirty and would trip a code after it didn't fire after a couple tries. I just took them out and sanded them down a little and they have been working fine all winter.

boilerguy has it right.

About one dead president. It's travel time that hurts.

Best deal you can get, is use your shop vac on every thing you can see in and around the furnace. Then call a independent HVAC guy. (a one man show) Then

offer him cash.

If it's a Lennox Pulse, all bet are off.

DISCLAIMER: i am in no way an expert, at anyting. anything i say is my own opinion and/or observation, and should never be regarded as fact, unless otherwise stated.

I had a Lennox at a previous home. It had a probe in the firebox that would tell the brain that there was ignition. The tech would come and clean it up or replace it every couple years. One year during a stretch that he said he hadn't had much sleep in a few days, he replaced the system with a digital box and probe. No more problems after that.

I had Home Service Plus (Centerpoint Energy) clean mine this fall. Was a bit less than a $100.

If you have Centerpoint for your gas, check out their HSOforum for the # to call. Or just check with your gas company if you don't have Centerpoint.
