    Honeywell WH thermostat - code 7 fixable?

    I cannot get the pilot to stay lit on my WH. I'm getting a code 7, which on this one means replace valve. The pilot generator reads 500+mv. I "grounded" out the back of the board with aluminum foil. No luck. I used a 9v battery and jumped ground to valve and ground to pilot. They both click. No...

    HVAC - both blower and fan will not start, contactor not pulling in.
