That's nice... I dropped $60k+ on a 4 year degree. Until you get field experience and learn good real world troubleshooting and get familiar with each make & model of equipment... it's just a nice piece of paper to get your foot in the door. BTW - my degree is completely unrelated to HVAC or facilities engineering, but it was still a good investment. I learned something and it got my foot in the door.

You didn't mention if you heard the gas valve open, or checked to see if it was getting power. If the pressure switch had failed, I don't think it would even light the ignitor. Most equipment manuals have a sequence of operations or a flow chart.

See... you just have to think like a furnace. Its' easier ot troubleshoot a furnace for this reason, than troubleshoot a woman. A guy can think like a furnace... but sure as he** can't think like a woman. A furnace uses rational pre-programmed logic. A woman... well....
There maybe an "on /off" switch on top of the gas valve. Is it on?
