I purchased a GE furnace 20 years ago. About 6 years ago, the White-Rogers Gas valve, 36C84-426, was acting up. The pilot would light but the furnace would not ignite. It kept making an unusual clicking sound.
A service provider placed a resister on the gas valve unit on the jumping the terminal connecting the wires to the valve.
This did the trick, although I have been replacing the resister almost every year since. However, the last batch of resisters I purchased do not seem to work. Can you please give me the proper Ohm rating, wattage and tolerance of the correct resister that I should be using in order to continue to prevent the proble from occuring. The resister I have now is 4.7k-Ohm, .5 watt, 5% tolerance, which doesn't seem to work.
