Napolean GDI 30 insert
Got a call to go relite a pilot on the fireplace and go a cleaning , we did have a good storm out recently
did my cleaning and went to light pilot
pilot lights ......good pilot flame
then when holding pilot in a small flame becomes on the main burner on right side or burner
find it weird I move valve onto off
pilot goes out but small flame continues until valve clicks because no pilot flame on thermocouple
I put manometer on valve find pressure when pilot on goes up to .20 in w.c
also triedwith pilot on and valve to on position try and jump t stat with wire and fireplace doesn't light
I have ordered a new valve , thermopile and thermocouple
thing I would like to ask is there anything I have missed
this customer is one of those that like to watch over and im only 23 so still a rookie service tech .
im installing new parts tomorrow and would like to know if anyone has any trick on how to disconnect the gas line downstream of gas valve its a flare fitting facing away from the front
Any information would be great
I tired reading your post a couple times and I'm still not sure what the problem is. If you clean it up a bit someone might be able to better understand what the problem is.
replace parts unit is working properly
try something called punctuation, it's wonderful.
