Gas Troubleshooting Manuals

Several people have asked me about these manuals. They were up on the Wall a while back and we sold quite a few. So I am putting them back up. I will bookmark this to keep it active.

These are the most up to date and comprehensive manuals on these subjects available today. The writer has taken information which is typically contained in different manuals, specification sheets and compiled it into workable easy to follow procedures for troubleshooting and understanding these systems.

Tim McElwain the founder of GAS Appliance Service Training and Consulting is the writer of these manuals. His knowledge of gas controls and systems brings a special flavor to these manuals. Tim has over 40 years experience in electronics, heating and gas systems. He was in the past the trainer for a New England gas utility.

The manuals available are:


This manual is 70 pages of just what you need to effectively troubleshoot Intermittent Pilot Systems, Direct Spark Ignition Systems and Hot Surface Ignition Systems.


An up to date operating and troubleshooting manuals on this Honeywell System. Tim was a SOURCE PROGRAM instructor for Honeywell and brings a special knowledge of these systems to the pages of this manual.


This is 140 pages of detailed information on older controls and the latest controls from United Technology and others. This is a must have for anyone troubleshooting boilers today.


What a deal this 240 page manual is to any technician who wants to know how to diagnos and troubleshoot these solid state controls. Tim is able to remove the intimidation factor from these printed circuit board controls.

All of these manuals come in an easy to use three ring binder format. This can allow you to remove portions to carry in on the job with you.

If you are interested e-mail me for an order form, pricing and a detailed description of what these valuable manuals contain. Buy all four and you will become an ACE on troubleshooting these gas systems. For $150 + $10 sshipping and handling you can have all four. Shipping and handling for Canada is $15.
