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

thunderbolt 11-29-2011 10:50 PM

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

ben's plumbing 11-29-2011 10:54 PM

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

thunderbolt 11-29-2011 10:56 PM

it has a good flame to

sorry ....can you test dc millivolts from a meter....want to see what milli volts sensor has.... can you get me a picture of furnace with doors off......to see what pilot set up you have,,
