    WHY do you think the manifold pressure isn't correct?

    It's rare that is a problem.

    Personally I favor using a wire brush.


    As an alternative, use a $50 bill. Of course it's "used" then and you need to charge for that as supplies.

    Going back to the original post. I'd say the problem originated with the sloppy initial diagnosis. With intermittent problems, too many poor repairmen like to run the furnace and then get out ASAP...

    The approach I'd use would be to remove one burner and install a plug in place of the burner orifice so it is completely disconnected. That would require some other adjustments, such as moving the...

    Well, you don't have what is commonly called an igniter (hot surface igniter). You have an intermittent pilot ignition system where the pilot isn't staying lit.

    That MIGHT be a bad ignition...

    Heh, heh! I just started in on page 1 and figured I would surely be able to read the dramatic conclusion by page 6!

    What a disappointment!

    What are the odds that the poor guy calls three different companies and gets Larry, Moe and Curly out to inspect the furnace?

    I'd start by reading the gas meter and checking to see if the meter was over read.

    I agree this is likely to be a venting related problem.


    My suggestion is that you need a way to analyze what's going on with the venting system, and the way to do that is to install a monometer...

    You really need the adapter to test the system properly.

    Without the adapter, you'll typically get 20+ millivolts, and that might drop to zero under the load of a magnet.


    Also, with the...

    A person who has been working installing and repairing furnaces for 3-5 years might be worth considering. Someone still in school, no.

    I agree that a flame rollout switch is unlikely to be the cause of the problem. If it's opening, it's probably opening for a reason.

    Check your zoning regulations. They may require more clearance to a neighboring property than you have.

    Diogenes went around with a lamp, looking for one honest man.

    You need a contractor who is both honest and competent. TWICE the problem Diogenes had.


    Good luck.

    A CAV furnace isn't as picky about gas input as sealed combustion systems.

    It's probably no especially critical, but I'd change it out to the orifice size specified by the manufacturer. You may...

    I'd be suspicious of a dirty pilot burner or pilot orifice. It doesn't sound like you've taken a careful look at the pilot flame or know what it should look like.
