Majestic A132 - Shutting Down When Valve Turned to " ON "
As the title states I have looked at a fireplace, the pilot stays lit when on pilot, as soon as you turn valve to " ON " it completely shuts down.
The thermopile is generating 525MV with the wall switch off, about 300 with the switch on.
Could this be a vent switch (i'm think the vent switch would prevent the pilot form coming on but not 100% sure ?)
The unit has been idle for a couple of years. I have checked the main orifice and burner tube and they are free of debris.
I'm leaning towards faulty valve but looking for opinions as I am typically a furnace guy, trying to help a buddy out.
Does it have a Honeywell Valve? They were wellknown for this problem. If so your only choice is to change out the valve. Contact Vermont Castings group for the kit number.
Thank you for the response it is very much appreciated. Not sure which valve it has, didn't reaize this model came equipped with different valves until doing some research. I will be checking which one it is.
