no volt meter. yes the gas (natural) is on. I can smell the gas and hear it flow when it goes through the cycle. the ignitor won't even get hot
glow bar, it looks fine. no cracks or white spots
Ok, now we should be getting a different code for limits or pressure switch, but lets go through a few steps.
Does the inducer motor come on and do you hear the click at time igniter should start glowing?
yes to both
Did you use a direct replacement on the flame sensor?
yes i did
i can run down and get one i'll be back in about 30 min
ok I'm back but I'm not too sure what I'm doing with the volt meter
Give me the model on the meter and I will instruct you
OK, turn dial to the 200 with squiggly line(App 1:00 on your meter), put probes in red and black connections.
Unplug the molex connector from igniter and put probes into the supply voltage side from the board. Turn thermostat to call for heat. Allow inducer to come on, pressure switch to close and then we should get a click and 120v to that plug
i heard the click but all it read was 00.6
both the white and black go back to the board
also, when i check do i put both leads on for the white wire or one one white and one on black?
it goes to the HSI port, but when I connect the leads like you say, there is an initial reading of 02.5 then drops to 00.0. when it should be clicking over to ignite the gas it only gets a reading on 00.9 then drops to 00.0
yes the supply to the board is reading 120.0
yeah i can hear the gas hissing and smell it. the ignitor never even gets warm. I know the AC side of the board still works though. So is that still a board issue?
Also, is a board something i can swap out myself or is this something a professional needs to do? I'm only asking since it looks "Plug-and-Play"
