ok 1st you said you changed flame senser....thats what i suspect is still the problem at this it the right sensor....and are there any codes flashing..

thunderbolt 11-29-2011 09:50 PM

I gave the parts place the model # and their no red light flashing

is the pilot fully engulfing the flame sensor...good and strong? sometimes weak pilot cause intermitent fire and flame drop...
