Maybe....

9 Flashes --- Check Ignitor Circuit and Line "N" to 24VAC "Common" voltage (≤ 2 volts)

Normlaly when you get a 9 flash code the board is bad though on the unit, First try to unplug the unit or shut the breaker off to the unit for 2 full minutes to reset all the controls on it. See if that changes the condition if not I would change out the board if the ignitor circuit checks out ok.

All I ask is...Please remember to use the RATING LINK ON YOUR PAGE by selecting a star at the top or bottom of the screen before you leave today. Even though you paid the site they will not disburse any part of it to me until you supply a good rating. If you need anything else, just let me know. You can continue asking follow-up questions at no additional charge after rating my service if you still need assistance.

Thanks for your help. I think that's something best left to a pro, whom I've called.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I left a rating for you as well.

OK no problem the star rating link should be on your page to rate this. You just have to select a star 1-5 ....5 being the best
