    Does this model have an inducer/combustion air blower that uses a pressure switch? Or does the inducer/combustion air blower make with an end switch? I've run across quite a few of the pressure switches being bad intermittently. In fact, had 2 in a row today.

    If this is a factual statement then reread the instruction on the Glowfly about use in this situation.

    Had a miller "cottage" furnace last year w/ gun type burner. Had issues with it working. it had flames sense in the (spiral) ignitor, got the factory one and still had to call support.

    seems the spacing off burner is critical, 3/8". wrote it on the furnace cabinet for future reference.
