Hi my name is ***** ***** I have been in the plumbing field for 20 years. I will be glad to help you today. Sometimes when you are not looking at the right angle you won't see it. Are you sure that there is not a spark from the igniter? Did you also turn the dial to pilot lighting along with the button?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yeah it was turned to pilot. Also the diagnostic light is not coming on on the gas control module
