Answer: A modern furnace has a sensor system. This continuously monitors the furnace about a safe operation. If any unsafe condition is detected the sensory system sends signals immediately to the furnace controller. The furnace controller will stop power to the furnace to prevent mishap or damage to the unit. You should call for a qualified service technician even if the furnace comes on. You will know the cause that lead to the lock-out of the furnace.
