With the shutoff valve, I can turn it 360 degrees without it stopping, NOT like what you would find with a normal shutoff valve.
BINGO!!!

That's the problem Right Rick?

Unfortunately its no longer available:

Couldn't he just replace that shut-off valve with a regular elbow? Since he already has at shut-off valve at his wall?

OR force it in the open position inside that shut-off valve?

I just tried your recommended test of taking off the two wires for the flame switch and pulling them apart when the igniter is red hot. No gas, but there was an audible single clock when I separated the two wires. So now what?

You didn't see my post 21? That gas shut-off valve is broken and its closed not letting the gas flow out.

You should not be able to spin that gas shut off valve 360 degrees around.:)

So here is the weird thing. I think it’s always been like that. I didn’t even touch that valve for any repairs prior to this problem. Prior to this, I had to change the belt, then a blower wheel change, then the flame sensor, igniter and now the gas valve.

I’m a little hesitant to ask this one, but is there any way I can test that portion of the line to see if gas is flowing out of it?

I did the test just to rule it out anyway. Not sure of the single clock is an indication that it is working properly.

Thanks.

Just turn the gas off at your wall, then remove that gas line to your gas valve, then turn the gas on at the wall and see if gas flows out.:)

Then shut it off at wall again.:)

You can't blow up the house if you just turn it on for a second or two just to see if it flows out.:)
