ok, what about cycling thermostat, ignighter, coil valves, and flame sensor, should those be tested as well and if so in what order and what readings

Can you run this in such a manner that you can see the ignitor? If so does the ignitor glow? Chances are the ignitor is bad, based on age that's about the only thing that would go. Way too early for a gas valve to go bad, and if the coils are bad it will light then shut off. If you can't get to it to test it, just replace the ignitor. There isn't a resistance reading, just watch it glow. And sometimes they can glow and still not allow the gas valve to open.

 

Part number is XXXXX and price from www.marcone.com is 46.49, although based on my cost that should easily be 25% or more cheaper from other places online. Based on the price. Just replace it. It will be your issue 99% of the time, and if it's not with 6-7 years on it it needs one anyway. On any auto ignition gas appliance the ignitor goes bad every 5-8 years anyway. Thanks!

You can check ohms to tell if it's open or not, but there isn't a standard resistance reading for telling if its good or bad. Replace it and dry some clothes. Thanks
