The control panel gets its power from the central heating unit's power point. Try turning the power off outside at the powerpoint next to the ducted heating unit and try turning it on again after a few seconds, see if it resets

Could be a number of things
Sounds like it the gas valve. If the gas Valve isn't opening or is burnt out then no gas will flow through it.
Also it the pilot is blocked then you wont get and gas coming through to light it up.
I am forever replacing gas valves on the buffalo series units and have found this to be quite a common problem on older units.

This unit is a cooling unit only. I don't know what switch you are looking at but I don't think it's for the evap. cooler(swamp cooler). I am in the Phoenix, Arizona area and it's very common to have a evap. cooler and a seperate heat/cool system as on the hottest days the evap. cooler doesn't cool enough. I hope this helps. Please give me a positive rating. Thank you.

From what you are showing and saying I would say that you have a bad gas valve... Your test B is the most telling in that it pulls the MV's down when you close the wall switch, but the gas valve does not open...this tells me that it is trying but the valve is not opening...
Now... the next problem will be to find that valve... from doing a very quick search, I believe that it is an OEM valve and probably will only be available from the manufacturer or a dealer...
So I would contact your dealer or Vermont castings and try to secure a new gas valve.
If it were a thermocouple problem the pilot would not stay lit...
One other test would be to bypass the wall switch and jumper the gas valve directly to make sure the wall switch is not the problem...
