So when you call for heat the pilot lites and it does not lite the main burner,
is this right, and the pilot just keeps going. Take the burner cover off.
Is your pilot burning good and blue? Is this Nat or LP gas? Do you have three
wires going to your pilot? If it does have three wires it is what we call a warp
switch pilot. There is a dimple in the metal under the pilot, make sure there
is no water in this dimple. Do you have the booklet that came with the furnace? With the burner cover off, try making it call for heat after the pilot has been burning for a few min. take a screw driver and tap the pilot gently
and see if it fires. Make sure the pilot is clean. If you have that book turn the gas pressure for the pilot up as hi as it will go, not the burner just the pilot pressure. Get back with me. Later Paul
