Customer reply replied 7 years ago
THERE APPEARS TO BE ONLY TWO WIRES GOING TO SWITCH, I DO NOT SEE ANY TUBES OTHER THAN MAIN GAS LINE COMING IN AND 1 TUBE THAT FEEDS THE BURNER. THIS SWITCH LOOKS LIKE IT IS ON THIS SMART VALVE
HVAC Technician: Zev Simfukwe, HVAC Technician (NATE) replied 7 years ago

Disconnect the tube that goes to the pressure switch. Put your mouth on the tube and suck on it. Do you hear the switch click open and closed?
