Thanks, ***** ***** not likely that has part has failed again.

If you have a multi meter and some skills with it, take a close up photo of the units wiring diagram, it needs to be exceedingly well focused, I can mark it up with trouble shooting instructions.

Hi Phil, just used a torch to heat the igniter at the burner, and the switch clicked and the flames started.
HVAC Technician: Phil, Mechanical Engineer replied 1 year ago

The bottom of the wiring diagram is cut off slightly and fades into the distance because the photo was taken at an angle, can you send me a new one?

The position of the unit precludes this from being done. I will do my best to facillate.

Thanks, ***** ***** wool or plumbers sand cloth to clean the sparking rod and the flame sensor rod on the pilot lite... bend the metal slightly to close the gap between the longest rod and its metal shroud to 3/16"

Thanks Phil, but now that it is running, and my wife is happy, I plan to get the full tank of water to temp, then cut the power, and let the igniter cool. I will then dis assemble and try your suggested fix once I examine the assembly. How to I continue this a later time &/or date?

Thanks much, and will post outcome or need. Think I may just replace the part spoken of. Good night.
HVAC Technician: Phil, Mechanical Engineer replied 1 year ago

You are welcome, when you get it fixed please rate my work, its the only way the company pays me for my time, lacking that I work at my own expense.
