To whomever can help,
I have an older Holland Furnace w/Iron Heater Core and standing pilot thermocouple. The pilot went out and I replaced the thermocouple w/new kit. The pliot then stays lit and the valve for the burner fires up as normal from the main electric switch and when I turned the themostat down and then up. One problem though...when the desired room temp is met, the valve shuts off and so does the Pilot. I then have to relight unit. The valve also never closes until the themostat tells it to. Is this normal or what? No control modules on this unit. Honeywell Gas valve 1/2 x 3/4 and continuous pilot. The blower appears to recycle (off and on). Anticipator, Thermostat, and 24v Transformer appears to be working properly. I suspect the Gas Valve itself as the culprit. Whaduya think. Can anyone please help.
