No, he didnt give a model number so I cant even verify if there is one or not. I'm just throwing out things to check rather than letting him be misled by the flame shutting off.
Im sure a service tech has been there by now, and she will post the news shortly

I checked the ground (traced + took connections apart everything looks okay) and put a new flame sensor in and it works okay. We'll see in about 4 months.
Just curious, but what would the failure mode be of a flame sensor that requires replacment? (outside of course dirty or broken).
It is merely a peice of metal with a ceramic insulator, no magic there. If replacing it works, if it wasnt damaged, then it was a poor connection or placement.
the OP is over a month old. i hope he's straightened it out by now.
