    The sad part is even though no one actually gave the answer there was enough info given that if the guy had a clue he should have been able to figure it out by the 3rd page.

    I agree. That truly is the sad part.

    The fact that he needed step by step instructions proves the point of the thread being DIY.

    This is one of those classic examples of why a skilled tech is so valuable, this problem would have been fixed within the first hour of most techs on this site service call.

    This person tried to save themselves or someone they knew money which resulted in no heat for 2+ weeks(who knows how long it took them to come to this site) and I'm hoping they didn't charge for their service because even at minimum wage just look at labor cost alone. Since they don't have any tools or knowledge the parts changing begins. Even at cost if you start changing boards and valves it adds up quickly, no guarantee that while they replace parts that might be the cause they even replace them properly. Ever seen a gas valve leak at the threads causing large flames in the unit on ignition, I have.

    So at this point whether the unit is working or not this person has cost themselves or someone else significantly more than if they had hired a knowledgable honest tech in the first place and would have learned more by watching this tech and asking questions then coming here and spewing absurdity.

    Pull the connector off the flame sensor hook one jumper from your meter to the flame sensor and the other to the wire you pulled off of it, fire the system, you should get 0.5 microampers
