I presume the fan is running?

Expert:  Brian replied 1 year ago.

if it is then when you put a test on the pressure switch is there a voltage through the switch

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Fan starts, pressure switch primes, igniter sparks but boiler doesn't fire. Tries to light 4 times (sparking times 2 & 3) before fan/flue fault light flashes quickly followed by flame failure light.... think it's possibly a gas valve problem
Expert:  Brian replied 1 year ago.

Yes sounds a possibility.

I will opt out for you, so that others can see where we have got to hopefully they may be able to help you further.
