You think he'll be able to do anything with that DYI info you gave him, Mark?-
I can do alot with that info. It has been a while since I have seen flame sensor readings so I was just trying to get a little reminder info. I did not ask how to get the reading on a flame sensor, that is not a problem. No need to be a wise guy. I understand the rules of the forum. I am not a new to the industry either. As soon as I get enough post I will sign up for the Pro side of the forum. I appreciate the info that was given.
Until he does he's gonna get jumped on by somebody who doesn't know him who is enforcing the rules.
No rule was broken, by the question or any answers given.
No instructions were asked for or given. If he didn't already know how to check the flame rectification current, Joe DIY homeowner wouldn't be any closer to being able to test his own furnace with that info than he was without.
Far more detailed info is available with a simple Google search. In fact, the #1 result for the search phrase "flame rectification" is an article published by the owner of this site.
If you want to play at moderator, apply to be one.
And just so you know that info should not be free in an open forum.
I disagree, that information should be easily available.
IMO, it should be required for manufacturers to list it on the control itself.
If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.
