1) OK, so I took apart my 325btu Teledyne heater to clean the debris off of the copper heater fins - the high limit was being triggered so it was so dirty. I put it back together but I wasn't getting a spark (ya know, the click, click, click). So now I am trying to test where the gap is. I unscrewed the two tiny bolts to get the pilot assembly back out to make sure its ring clamp connection to the lead assembly is tight - I tightened the tiny nuts on the bottom end of the ignitor. With the ignitor hanging out, I tried to get a spark again, but no luck - Does the ignitor need to be screwed in and grounded to spark?
2) I also pulled the red spark wire off of the ignition control while under spark to see if it jumps the gap, like the manual says - no spark jump. Keep in mind this is also without the pilot assembly grounded (possibly the same issue as #1)
3) It is such a pain to screw that pilot assembly into place with those 2 tiny bolts - any tips?
4) I am about ready to call a pro - any suggestions for Charlotte, NC??
Thanks to all!
