    I have a Cleveland steamer mod.# 24CGM200  ser.# 99469-06L-01.  The problem I am having is the alarm for the ignition keeps going off and unit has to be reset.  The ground is clean.  The ignition module, cable, and ignitor/sensor have  been replaced along with gas valve.  Sensor is in good position over flame.  Sometimes it will run for 5 minutes before going off, other times it will shut down after only a few moments.  Contacted manufacturer and all they said was it’s losing it’s signal.  ( I know that, that’s why I called).  They couldn’t tell me why or where to look.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Alrighty.

    Measure the MA signal, what is it?

    Measure tha A draw off either of the wires going to the gas valve, what is it? it’ll be 0. something. It’s important.

    Only so many things can go wrong.

    Verify the Ma signal, if it’s stable and strong, it’s not your flame rod or wire coming back to the IM. 

    If your MA signal cuts out and the flame dies, then check your gas valve, hook a manometer to it and check the outlet port while measuring the A draw and see what happens. 

    If the flame is established which it sounds like it is, you are either loosing the signal, or loosing the flame. 

    Let me know back.

    Sounds like your losing flame sense.  That can be a bit difficult to find if intermittent.  Do you have a DVOM that can measure uf amps.  If so, measure the sense current on the ground wire.  It should be 1.5  DC micro-amps. If low, check your  pilot flame to make sure it is engulfing the sense rod,  That the pilot ground wire connections are clean as well as the HV ignition wire.  And that the ignition module has a full 24 VAC
