Bob I just bought a new analogue. OEM .
would not come on, I have to move the temperature lever low to high back and forth several times before I hear the furnace
gas solenoid click on and the pilot light
come on. I thought a new thermostat would fix that. I go thru the same scenario with the new thermostat.
That is why I didn't buy a digital.
The electric surge coming from the thermostat to the solenoid seems to make the solenoid work. Is my thinking correct ??? I didn't know if a digital would work by just turning it on, temp preset.
I wanted a digital !
