    Maybe I am. Seems you're the only one that feels that way. Testing flame sensors is hvac101. You should have learned it in school. If not ask for a refund.

    You're checking for microamps. If your meter doesn't have a microamp setting you are SOL

    No. Microamps are checked in series with the sensor. You need the proper meter.

    I maybe wrong , but I do not think there is a industry standard for ratings in microamps a flame rod should be putting out. One unit maybe different from the other. If the manufacturer had some information on the required output from flame sensor then measure it and if out of range replace it.

    some modules have that info imprinted on their sticker.

    why do you keep creating additional threads for the same topic?

    keep this in the original thread so it has some continuity in process.
