    Do you mean more than 0.5?

    Different manufacturers have different minimum microamp requirements. Many units that have clean, undamaged flame sensors will get over 2.0 microamps during operation.

    This unit still broken? Anyone know which furnace he is working on? Has the OP checked in lately?
    Beware of advice given by some guy on the Internet.

    ok pal if you can't get this thing going, here is what you need to do (although this is against forum rules, Im going to fix this for you)





    1) Make sure the fuel line is plugged in and locked into the receiver

    2) squeeze the primer bulb several time til it feels "hard"

    3) Pull the choke all the way out

    4) grasp the "T" handle on the pull rope and pull with some authority. (you may have to do this several times)

    5) this should start it up. If it starts, wait a few seconds and then push the choke all the way in

    If it doesn't start, step back three to four feet and kick it as hard as you can, then repeat the process

    Lets me know if this helped???

    Ok, Im just bust'n your balls, if it didn't start it's probably because of that damn ethanol.....Good luck, have fun

    I have seen the primer balls go bad, if it won't fire replace the primer ball and try it then, hope I don't get banned.

    Holy cow. I was a go-kart kid when I was 11, and that sure brought back some memories!!

    BTW, Sta-Bil makes a fuel treatment to mitigate the effects of methanol in gasoline powered equipment.

    This is only appropriate if you use the "HIIII-YAAAA" method.
