    X2 ECtofix; very well said. I'd like to add that the smart valve checks the ignitor so it's possible to get a glow with no attempt to open the pilot.

    I'll rephrase. As you probably know most failures are of the under feeding type. Of THAT type of failure is where swapping the power head is of value.

    Look at it this way; the only way to find out how the valve failed is to swap the power head. If that doesn't fix it you've only lost 15 min. You don't even need to mount the sensing bulb initially.

    So guys; just swap out the whole indoor coil under warranty when that TXV fails. The coil will leak eventually anyway, it's much easier to do and the new coil is aluminum.

    If the loop is sized property there is no need for an expansion tank. All that plastic pipe and (usually) the rubber hoses that connect the flow center to the hp will more than compensate.

    It's easy to short out low voltage wires on the gas pipe at the pressure switch if the installers had to do the 180 degree turn right out of the gas valve. The ignitor was probably broken by the HO.
