Question about Heating & Cooling
When I depress the pilot light knob and press the igniter, there is no spark. If I do not depress the pilot light knob i can press the igniter and it will spark. Do I have a bad control valve or there a problem somewhere else?

The trick is that it may take a long time for the flammable portion of the gas to reach the pilot light orifice where the flame lives. This happens a lot when the pilot flame has been out for some time. There won't be a clicking sound as YOU are supposed to provide the flame - it's not like a cooking stove with such conveniences, because the pilot light is only an occasional thing to light it's rare to find an ignition source built in. I'd hate to see you spend good money when all you need to apply here is time and a flame.
