first off buy yourself a honeywell stat, in my personal opinion lux stats are garbage, I have run into so many that are bad stats !!! but as far as your fan not shuting down, sounds to me like your fan center on your circuit board is bad and will not shut down the fan when needed, you will have to replace the circuit board, as the fan center is a part of the whole of the circuit board, hope that helps

The two most common reasons I have found for this are listed below. You have already addressed the third one.
1) Grounding issue. This can be difficult to find but easy to diagnose. Try using a volt meter or even just a piece of wire. Touch one end to an unpainted surface of the interior furnace cabinet and the other end to the sheet metal plenum or other ground. If the symptoms go away then you have diagnosed the problem and need to find the faulty ground.
2) Pressure in the flu. Check to make sure that the flu vent pipe is not clogged or even partially filled with debris. The small rubber hose that connects to the switch from the inducer blower motor may be clogged. Also check the orifice on the inducer motor side. You can clear this with a paper clip. Water (condensation) in the inducer motor housing or pressure switch can cause a failure too. Rarely is the pressure switch itself bad. This usually will only happen if it has been physically damaged or soaked. Best of luck.

Hello, it sounds like your Furnace might be shutting off due to your high limit switch.A limit switch will open when the furnace overheats due to low airflow, . check air filter, clean blower wheel, and check to make sure the blower wheel is running at proper speed and not dragging sometimes cause by a weak capacitor. Anything that restricts airflow will cause a limit switch to open.

bad primary control (the box with the reset button), maybe your thermostat but unlikely. Try the Primary Control first. How old is your burner?
