    A technician would have the following attributes:

    1) experience

    2) a boss to ask questions, or a senior tech at the same company, or even a different company where a friend is employed

    3) the proper tools. I have read NOTHING of any readings you have taken, so I can only go by what I see here in this thread, and that is that NO readings have been taken. I told you that the EGC would not be your problem, yet you jumped at the idea of connecting it, thinking I was wrong. It didn't work. Did you think I was talking through my hat?

    You should not be at all surprised when people here call your bluff. So far, you are just a BS artist, and not a very good one. The length of this thread does not indicate that you are a good BS'er, only that we are having a discussion about how poor a BS'er you really are.

    With some attitude adjustment and some mentoring, you could become a tech, but that is long road that I doubt you have the desire or fortitude to follow.

    Just don't expect roses when you bring us a shovelful.
    nicely put

    No, a qualified tech would have fixed it on the first day. Did you fix it?

    No!!!!!! Don't be done with it... We were all just joking, you are a very wise man, we know that. We are all just jealous of how well you can do your job and we want to be like you. Most of all we are all very interested as to what the problem was with this furnace so we just would like to know when you get it fixed... If its already fixed, do you remember which day it was fixed???

    you only get mad if you know your wrong!!!

    and Im betting the board did NOT fix your problem, unless you changed out all the other components too.

    from the symptoms you described, you probably did not have to change anything out. I have had these very symptoms recently, the "fix" is astonishingly simple.

    Just for the fun of it, Lets recap the problem:

    No model or serial number
    No U-Tube manometer
    no heat

    Ok, got it.

    1) you jump R to W (eliminating the thermostat) the furnace goes through a normal sequence of operation but the burners shut off after a few seconds of operation?

    2) you ASSUME the problem lies in the flame sensor so you check the micro-amp reading and get......you never really said what you got. all you said was
    " from my knowledge any direct current above 2,0 is good and below 1.6 is a bad flame rod but after I clean the rod and install it back into the furnace
    But for some reason you decided to clean it with SANDPAPER anyway. But you never retested it to see what your new reading is??? ut-ooh

    3) On restart you say you have a normal sequence of operation (Vent motor, HSI lights, gas valve opens) but now your not lighting the burners? However you do have 24v to the gas valve...correct?

    at this point what do we KNOW, well we do have power (120v and 24v) The vent motor starts, the HSI starts (so the pressure switches MUST be good? right!) we have 24v to the gas valve, but no flame

    4) NOW I CAN'T GO ANY FURTHER BECAUSE I DON'T HAVE A FREAKING MANOMETER......this sux
    Input output is good or gas valve is not functioning correctly but I doubt also , and another thing the blink lights is one blink which mean ignition failure probable causes gas pressure no gas ,gas valve, flame sensor, and if this could be cause by a open limit or roll out or over temp stack let me know but I seriously doubt it because I think these open when burner is lit, let me know pros and service techs.
    so now we have come to the guessing part of our program??? you *think* the gas valve is ok?

    seriously, THE BLINK LIGHT!!!! THE FREAKING BLINK LIGHT. <return to calm~~~Breath, deep breaths> blinks once, which Im guessing from your post, that means there is a problem in the ignition sequence, but you still have not checked the pressure switches, vent tubes or gas pressure

    Now you say (I ASSUME) you fixed the problem by replacing the board. how many other components did you change out in the two weeks since your original post???

    well, at least you got it fixed ( I ASSUME)

    I'm sorry, we weren't trying to be mean, its just a natural response to dry to put someone down when you know that they're the best electrician to walk the face of this earth. We are actually astounded at your diagnostic skills and hope to learn from you. Don't feel bad, most of the professionals here probably would have taken several weeks at least to fix a simple problem, most would just wait until the weather warms up. We need more qualified professionals like you....
    On a different note, what did the furnace repairman say was wrong? In case you were wondering, in the future we have this great resource that will help you fix your furnace problems in a much more timely manner, Ask Our Pros Contractor Locator, don't hesitate to use it. Also, if you can teach us how to take readings without any meters or test equipment, that would be amazing, as it would save us the thousands we currently spend for guages, multimeters, manometers, combustion analyzers, etc. Looking to hear from you, master electrician.

    Let's tell the truth here.

    You never articulated ANY readings, giving numerical values, that you took in pursuit of this.

    In fact, in the post I quoted above, you did not even say whether the unit was running, whether you were getting paid, or if the "customer" was a relative or a friend. In fact, you never even said you have a job.

    As far as I am concerned, you are not a tech, because your ability to answer the questions posed to you is essential for ANY tech to be able to do. The fact that you never responded as a tech tells me that you are a DIY guy, perhaps a self taught kid who thinks he is a tech because he holds an EPA card.

    Wrong-o.

    Seeya!
