    flame rectification help

    I could use some help understanding flame rectification. I've done some research online and have a decent understanding how it works when there is a separate ignitor and flame sensor. My challenge is when the ignitor and flame sensor are combined. I had trouble with a unit that would drop out after the ignitor cooled,turns out it was due to ignitor resistance. Just need to understand why, any suggestions on where to look. I will be teaching this to my coworkers.

    High resistance on an HSI that is used as a flame sensor also, is the same as having a dirty flame sensor rod. Exception that the rod can be cleaned, the HSI is replaced.

    Yep.

    When I use my "dumb phone," I can't see a member's status.

    Knowing he might not be a Pro yet, I thought this would encourage him to take those steps, too.

    It very well may. And he can do so after 7 more post.
