Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I found that the tab on the flame sensor that one of the wires connects to had broken off the flame sensor. It seems machine vibration broke the tab off. I would like to buy the part locally and finish this repair tomorrow. Can I wait till tomorrow to verify that a new flame sensor, fixed my problem ?
