      Re: Flame Sensors

      DC milliamps are sent to the flame sensor via the ignition control (printed circuit board). The milliamps travel through the flame to the burner face which is grounded, and which at that point completes the flame proving circuit. This allows the furnace to continue operating. No - I've never seen a faulty flame rod. Yes - I have seen cracked ceramic. And yes - cleaning them normally takes care of the issue. I like to clean 'em with a crisp new $100 bill. Makes 'em shine like my gold tooth display. Hey - you cats need to lighten up. This Mickey Mouse **** is gettin' the best of you.

          i have checked a flame sensor on a gas unit heater i tore out of a garage in my shop by holding a propane torch against the pilot burner and blowing the flame on the flame sensor to get the gas valve to open, kinda killing two birds with one stone checking the flame sensor and the gas valve.

            ??? You sure you are not thinking of Ignition electrodes on an oil fired furnace???
            yep by grounding out i mean bypassing the flame
