Have HVAC Questions? Ask an HVAC Expert for Answers
Hi, I'm Tim and I'm an HVAC expert here to help answer your question(s). Please provide all the information I ask for since I'm not onsite. At the end of our dialog you will be asked to rate my service, but please wait until then and all your question(s) have been answered satisfactorily. If you are not satisfied, I'd appreciate it if you'd tell me why before leaving a negative rating and allow me to continue to work with you until we are able to both agree on an outcome to follow. Thanks for your business!
The moderator for JA asked me to help. Can you restate the question, please?
Let's try cleaning the flame sensor if you have not tried that. The flame sesnor is right next to the pilot and is a short steel rod with a ceramic base. It can be removed and the metal rod portion shined up with some steel wool or emery cloth.
This was just step one. I always try simpler stuff first. We would have eventually gotten around to ignition control if that was the problem. I was waiting for you to post back with results.
