Question about Heating & Cooling
I bypassed thermostat and shorted thermoswitch on regulator and how can i verify if ignighter is ok
I can only make assumptions on your setup based on your description. I am assuming you are referring to a gas wall heater that has an electronic ignitor and that you shorted the thermostat wire leads together to simulate 'calling for heat' .. If that's correct, then here's a few things you can try.. If you can open the wall heater access panel to see where the burner is, you should see some kind of igniter there too.. Rather than short the wires at the thermostat, why not ,...make a wire jumper at the heater itself and short across the contacts of where that thermostat would plug in? By doing that, you take the wiring out of the equation.. A short across the thermostat terminals at the heater should turn th eheater on and call for heat.. If everythings working, you should get gas into the burner and the ignitor should provide a spark to get a flame established.. I hope I helped you.. if not.. please elaborate on whats actually happening or where I am wrong..
