Answer: A furnace can be reset to unlock it. You can shut it off and wait for some time. Power it on again. Some of the furnace models take one or two hours to unlock itself. The oil-burning models have reset buttons on the burner that has to be pressed to restart it. If a gas furnace has a pilot light, then it has to be relighted to unlock the furnace.
