After replacing the thermocouple and thremopile, I can not get the burner to work on my CIDV-30-7 ser # T 03 803625. The switch is fine. What else can I check?

Our Answer:

The next step would be to check pressure at the inlet/outlet gas pressure taps on the valve itself. Older valves can become sensitive to gas pressure changes. Incoming manifold pressure should be between 5 and 10.5 inches of W.C. when tested on the inlet pressure tap. If the valve is open, the outlet tap should be reading between 1.7 and 3.5 inches of W.C. for the valve to feed the burner properly. If there is no pressure reading with the valve open and the supply in range, the valve is likely stuck or defective. If you do have pressure on the outlet pressure tap with the valve open, the main burner orifice may be clogged with debris. Removing the main burner tube to expose the orifice and blow it out will be necessary.
