SOURCE: I have a Burnham series

Hello. The culprit is most likely the spark electrode lead. Once the pilot lights it rectifies the current telling the pcb [printed circuit board] the pilot is on it is ok to light the main burner. Begin by replacing the electrode lead. If it is still not solved, then replace the pcb. Joe

4 thumbs up please. ty.

Just replaced thermopile generator and pilot will not stay lit


Check the new thermopile with a millivolt meter and make sure it has the correct output not connected to the gas valve.If it does,then the gas valve is defective.Make sure to test ONLY the thermopile.If it does not generate enough millivolts the gas valve will not open.If the piliot is dirty it will not generate enough heat for the thermopile.Make sure you have a good,strong,blue flame at the pilot.You said the piliot will not stay lit?If not then start by blowing air back through the piliot where the flame comes out with compressed air.hopefully that will clean it well enough.If not you may have to take the pilot tubing loose from the valve and use compressed air to clean it.Make sure when you reconnect the tubing to the valve USE FINGERS ONLY to start tyubing or you may crossthread the tubing....and thats NOT a good thing.Good Luck.

Does this valve have a standing pilot? if not, if my hot surface ignitor lights up and the furnace fails to light would you consider it to be a faulty gas valve? I am getting a constant 24 volts fro


If your getting 24 Volts to the gas Valve and the gas Valve is not opening replace your gas valve If your not getting a full 24 volts check your Transformer and the ground to the gas valve.If the gas valve still does not open change the Gas valve.

When the heat cycle calls for gas there is no ignition is my gas valve bad?


I don't know what kind of furnace you have. But most furnaces have some sort of pilot first than after it is proven than the main gas will come on. Either a standing Pilot with a thermocouple. A hot surface ignition or Spark ignition with a flame sensor. Or a direct fire system where hot surface or spark ignitor start first than all the burners send a 1 sec blast of gas which is proven by the flame sensor if it proves the gas valve stays on.....
In what you have said you have 24 volts to the gas valve and it has not lite. then does the gas valve have a pilot tube???Does it have a thermocouple?? Do you smell gas?? If you don't smell gas then the main part of the valve has not opened. The Pilot valve has to open first and prove before the main gas will come on. I hope this helps. If you still need help repost with the name and model # of the furnace.

I have Burnham series 2 Boiler - I cant locate filter,see dust


Boilers do not filter air, as they heat with water.... Most boilers do not require home owner manitenance, unless your circulators need to be oiled

Furnace runs about 1 minute, then total shutdown


that sensor as you call it is a thermacouple it produces a small current which lets the gas valve know it is ok to open . if the pilot is not clean and correct it will not let main valve open. if your pilot is good then you have bad gas valve. you may have low gas pressure this can also do what you are describing

Burnham ledv boiler, honeywell primary control will lockout after 1 or 2 cycles. reset, get the same results. works fine during the summer


I'm sorry to hear! On mine, another model of Burnham , there's a grey box (approx 4" high by 5" wide) on the front of the boiler. This cover slides off and the control settings are underneath. My manual says low limit must be 20 degrees below high limit else they will lock out each other. I find this to be the case when a maintenance man's "tuned" the settings. My manual also says to set the differential knob to 25 degrees. There are some manuals on the burnham.com site along with their phone number.
