HI mark this is a electronic spark igniter

Hi,

 

Have you tried cleaning off the pilot assembly with a piece of scotchbrite or emery cloth, especially the flame sensing rod ?

 

Other than that you will need a volt meter to test the module out, it should be a gray box spark module maybe a Robertshaw or Honeywell, let me know

 

 

Thanks

Mark i see the ignitor rod that goes in the part that looks like spark plug and it sparks but i don't see the flame sensing rod shouldn't it be in the pilot flame area?
Can you post a pic of the pilot assembly and blower compartment for me?
