This is the first light of the season in a new house.
From A to Z...
I filled the propane tank, turned the valve outside on. Came inside, pressed the red button (the gas valve is an Essex, don't know if that makes a difference) for about 15-20sec, lit the pilot (I was able to do this without opening the inspection door) , turned up the thermostat (you can hear it click at the thermostat) and nothing.
I've downloaded the manual for the thermostat and checked it out, replaced the batteries and re-set it, but it seems to be working fine...
It's probably something stupid I'm over looking, but I've never had to do work with a furnace like this before, I've always used a wood stove.
Thanks for the fast reply!
