Problems with new(er) Honey well spark control
I have a Burnham boiler with the new self diagnosing spark control that is having problems. First check we were getting short cycles and the control indicated weak flame signal. Checked for excessive resistance in the pilot circuit, found the connector somewhat loose and tightened, but still same problem. Also, noticed pilot would light immediately when boiler was cool, but not when hot. Replaced pilot assembly and attached wire with new pilot assembly and spark plug style wire and weak flame signal indication was gone and boiler operated normally. I did find that the pilot was not completely seated on the burner moun, so I may have been getting a bad ground. Got another call a week later... no heat. Owner powered down the boiler several times for as long as 1/2 hour, but control did not reset. I came in and checked a couple wires to be sure they were tight and everything seemed ok. Hooked up meter between transformer common and PV and started boiler. I was getting readings all over the place during spark, then once the pilot lit, stable. Boiler lit fine and has contrinued to work for several days. Is the wild reading normal during spark ? Any other ideas?
