honeywell R7184 ignition control
Got a Intertherm Series M1B oil gun furnace. One of those little diddys you find in trailer closets across America.
I noticed one of the choices with setting this puppy up is the option of wiring the R7184 control with either interrupted or intermittened ignition.
What are you thoughts?
Why would there be an option to go intermittened when you consider the method of ignition with electrodes snapping out 10,000 volts.
Am I missing something here? Wouldn't it be a bit redundant to have the electrodes snapping through the entire heat cycle? Is someone having me on??
Whats your experience?
When you have the time.
Look at the flame with constant ignition, and then change it to intermittent, and look at it.

I guess where I was going with this is the fact that when dealing with the electrode method of ignition, the "only" choice for method of ignition would, in my minds eye, be interrupted.
With spark quiting after ignition, and flame sensor supervising the safety aspect of the business and no pilot, as you were, isn't intermittent out of the question?
I can't get my mind around any other way. Must be missing something. And believe me, wouldn't be the first time.
Most oil burners today are intermittent.
But, in years gone by, the vast majority were constant spark.
When the transformer drops out. It changes you flame position, in relation to the burner head.
