No flame

Dbon Member Posts: 1
I have a boiler with a fenwal ignition module. HSI.  It locks out intermittently. I get 24v to valve and no flame. After 3 tries it locks out. Then an hour later it'll try again. Then it'll start working again. I don't know how often it locks out but when it's really cold out I'll notice it more.  As recommended I changed the gas valve but it still happens. Thanks for your help

    sounds like a gas valve issue if you truly have 24 volts at the valve and it's not opening,. Check the outlet of the gas valve by putting a low pressure " of water column gage or a manometer on the gas valve outlet port or on the burner manifold see if your getting gas pressure.

    Also check and tighten all wiring connections

    Check the pressure on the inlet as well to make sure there isn't some other issue like a bad service regulator

    Is this propane or natural gas?

    Is the Hot Surface Ignitor an aftermarket replacement? I know that there is an American Standard furnace that does not ignite the gas with aftermarket ignitors. Must use OEM ignitor on that model. I wonder if you have a similar issue?
