sticking gas valve

Hey Wallyo
Thats one of my favourite gas valves for older furnaces.
The nice thing about the valve you've chosen is that next time you have a pilot or gas valve problem, that eco on the side gives you a connection point to measure both the strength of the thermocouple while its still connected to the gas valve and the strength of the gas valve pilot electro magnet with a drop out test.
