Economite issues.

Boiler won't fire up. Come downstairs and the fan on the burner is running but no flame. 
I noticed the pilot was out so I relit the pilot.
Flipped the switch and I have a pilot and I have a blower but still no flame.
Im guessing the low water cut-off and the pressuretrol must be working since they are allowing the blower to kick on. 
Bad gas valve?  
Any help is greatly appreciated
thank you in advance.

    I wiggled the switch and it fired up. Seems odd that it would have that much play in it.

    Has anyone done a combustion test on that burner? The E20 is not a flame-retention burner, and the boiler was designed for one.

    I bet on end switch of burner motor. Just did one day b4 yesterday. Fasco d454 motor. Unless in fact you did not have valve lever in on position.
