Thanks again, I tried the power on test this morning, the hot gas solenoid valve had 120v
reading but it was chattering with minor meter movement, could not tell for sure what was
chattering the relay or the valve. Turned the machine off for 10 min. this time all I got was water inlet no hot gas, tapped on control box with a screwdriver and the valve kicked in, checked for loose or broken wires and funky connections but could not find any, I,m
betting on a bad relay. I eliminated the gas solenoid by test with test cord.
