Beckett burner eating up Ignitors
I just replaced an Ignitor on a Beckett burner in a Miller trailer furnace. This last one lasted less than 24hrs? The previous on went about 8 months. The earlier one was a carlin. The latest one was an Allanson 17kv ignitor I had on the truck. I checked for proper polarity and voltage. Both checked fine. I have made sure to clean the paint off the mounting screw on the hinge to be sure the ground is good. This time i replaced the primary control as well, not sure if this was causing some trouble? I installed a standard old-school tranformer on it to see if this holds up better. The electrodes are fine and properly adjusted. Any thoughts?
