Do you have an over pressed issue at all the gas valves? Thanks for choosing
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
No we do not have an over pressure issue with the gas valve .esv inspector has said the regulators supplying gas to the heaters could fail & give more pressure up to 7 Kpa what will happen to the white rogers gas valve if it is subjected to 7 kpa does it lock out or what . Regards Stuart

The valve shouldn't lock out but failure to fire will lock out via the ignition board. Thanks
