If pressure switch contacts are going from 24VAC to 0VAC then the switch is closing. I'm a little confused though. I thought we had a fault code '3' meaning pressure switch failed to close.

Am I reading correctly that the ignitor is glowing? Gas valve opens but does not ignite? Normal sequence is 1-combustion blower starts, 2-pressure switch closes, 3-ignitor warm up 17 seconds (50A55 Control),4- trial for ignition 3-5 seconds, 5-burner lights. Where are we in this sequence? Do you have a glowing ignitor when you hear the gas valve click?

It would be OK to remove the burner access cover to observe the burners during startup.

Ignitor resistance at 70-75F should be 50-400 ohms (usually around 100) - Amp draw is 4-5
