    If you don't know how to test a flame sensor you should demand a full refund for your tuition.

    The supply house is, just that, a supply house. When I go to supply houses I always hear the guys behind the counter trying to help diagnose stuff over the phone. Their job is to take numbers you give them and turn them into parts, not diagnose your service call. Don't believe me? Call Grainger sometime and ask for technical help It's like talking to a barrel of monkeys. Do you have a senior tech to ask questions to?

    that's how it sounded to me. some people retain info faster than others. or maybe they have not been to that chapter yet.

    If you are working on a G26 and the pilot is fluttering before main ignition, make sure you have the rubber gasket on the bottom of the fire box that the pilot tubing goes thru is installed correctly. I have seen air gaps in thst gasket cause pilots to flutter enough on ignition to cause flame rectification problems.
