Question about Heating & Cooling
The dial was turned to 'off' instead of 'standby'. It can no longer be turned on past 'ignition/press'. Graham
Mine did a similar thing, when in off position, it would only turn to pilot/ignite, but would not move past this point. I took off bottom cover to locate regulator. where the slector knob shaft meets the regulator, try spraying wd40 in the top of regulator where square shaft goes into reg. There is a saftey lock mech in there, and in my case it was stuck in the locked position. I then worked the knob back and fourth applying alot of pressure, but not enough to break the knob. it worked after a few tries, and lights and functions normally, locking again if pilot goes out. good luck.
