There are 2 front panels. The bottom is the blower cover with a switch and the top is where the gas valve and burner are located. There is no switch for the top panel. The furnace should work with the top panel off or on, but it only works with the panel off. With the panel on the electronic ignition will just spark without igniting the burner. If I take the top panel off and the burner is ignited and I replace the front panel, the burner goes off. Thanks.Bjd said:Try checking the switch for the blower cover, it may be damanged
Steve Wiggins said:Cbartony, there is a 3-wire pilot generic replacement that WILL NOT WORK. You must get the original OEM part. Holding the generic up to the original they appear to look EXACTLY the same. But the difference is the inner tube the pilot gas shoots up is a solid tube on the OEM and a slitted tube on the generic. Look closely and you will see.
