Question about Tools & Hardware - Others
Same thing was happening to mine about 3 years ago. It's the flame sensor. All you have to do is clean it and your good to go. It looks like a small aluminum probe, maybe 3 inches long with only one wire going to it. The tip of the probe should be sticking into the area where the actual flame is. To clean it, take a piece of fine sand paper, and just give it a light sanding. Make sure that you don't touch the aluminum part with your fingers or use any kind of solvent on it. Any contamination on it might be enough to cause it to continue to malfunction. If this helps FixYa, please remember to rate me. Thanks.
