York furnace .induced draft motor runs when t stat is off

Sounds like a bad thermostat or stuck motor control relay. Turn off the breaker at the unit or in the electrical panel to kill the motor and see if cutting power, if relay is bad, cycles off and stays, but you should leave power off and call for service right away.

Sounds like stuck relay contacts. Magnetrons need a high voltage source which is controlled by a micro to relay and then from relay to voltage source. Even the turntable works via a relay.

Reset the device. 1. Press and hold the Power/Menu button for approximately 20 seconds. 2. Release the Power/Menu button. 3. Press the Power/Menu button again to turn on the player.
Power cycle the device.
The power cycle discharges excess/residual power from the player; with the use of a new battery, it should be able to power on the MP3 player properly.
STEP 1 - Remove the battery STEP 2 - Power cycle the player 1. Connect the player to the PC. 2. Leave the device connected for about 2 minutes.
STEP 3 - Turn on the device 1. Unplug the player from the PC. 2. Insert a fresh AAA battery into the player. 3. Turn on the player.
