So I recently had to replace the thermocouple on my Mt. Vernon AS and noticed that the new TC seemed loose when I connected it to the control board (part# 7000-456 Rev C). The bad TC firepot error that I had been getting is now gone but the igniter now won't get hot. I brought the board to my local dealer who checked the fuse and said it was fine, and he also tested the igniter and said it was ok too. He noticed that the plastic connectors where the 2-pin wires connect to the board were missing and said this was what was causing my problem. He also said that I would not be able to find those connectors anywhere and would have to replace the control board at $700. I can't believe that there isn't a cheaper fix for this then replacing the entire control board. I've looked at my wires and the missing connectors are not there so I have no idea what happened to them but they are gone. I asked the dealer if he had an old board that he could pull those connectors off from and he did not. Does anyone have a suggestion of how to fix this issue? I've attached a picture showing the two two pin connectors where the plastic pieces are missing as well as the model number Tag.
