New main control board, new wiring harness and new inducer control board. Now inducer starts, pilot lights, but not main ignition. I believe gas valve is not opening. I have 24 volts on main at gas valve after pilot warms up to temp

Hi I am Luke, Check gas supply like shut off valve on gas line, gas in propane tank if it apply's, on/off switch on gas valve.

There is gas, as I stated the pilot is lit

Ok, let me check

Not much longer

Expert:  Gaztech replied 1 year ago.

OK after pilot is lit the flame sensor is not reading due to either it's unplugged , defective or needs cleaning.

this is the Bryant 3 wire pilot...there is a warp switch in the side that can get weak..

You have 2 options...use a short wire shaped in a the gas valve you will see terminals 1-5. WITH PILOT LIT...jump terminal 1 to 5..

If burner lights = bad pilot assembly

If it does not = bad gas valve
