No 2nd switch on the thermostat. I disconnected the thermostat and the blower is still running. Looks like we will have to take it in for repairs. Thanks everyone.

Just for informational purposes, there is no temperature sensor in the plenum. There is an ECO, or emergency cut-off sensor, which will shut the furnace in an over-temp, over heating situation. The only sensor responsible for shutting down the furnace during normal operation is the wall thermostat.

In older furnaces, there is a TDR (time-delay relay) that is responsible for the purge cycle after the burner has extinguished after the t/stat has been satisfied. In newer models (such as the one under discussion), the igniter board has this job. It is also responsible for the blower coming on, checking the circuit thru the sail switch and ECO, igniting the burner and then extinguishing it and then controlling the purge cycle.

This board also tries 3 times for ignition and will shut down the blower if this doesn't occur. His igniter board probably needs to be replaced.

Just got repair. It was the circuit board for the blower. Thank you for all of the support in helping us narrow down the problem. Happy camping!
