It pays to troubleshoot a broken appliance before thinking about buying a new one. I removed the cover and found the manufacturer's circuit and troubleshooting diagrams inside. The fuse was good, next in line was the flame sensor. Meter showed it was open, so I knew that was it. Disconnect the wires and screw, replace part, replace cover. DONE! I knew I had the right part from the pictures on PartSelect's web site. Total cost under $20 compared to ten times that for a new one. Had the part in two days.
