wncbrewer, i am using an auber syl-2362 pid and a honeywell valve with a rtd style temp probe. Your pid model design could be different, so please refer to your pid manual. I am switching the hot 24vac leg of my transformer. I am using the J2 outputs on my PID to switch the 24vac on and off during automatic control. I am currently @ work and had to manually draw out a quick schematic of my wiring. I AM NOT A LICENSED ELECTRICIAN, please take my design with a grain of salt Your transformer may be designed differently. OK, disclaimer over on with the schematic.
Thanks, this makes things a lot more clear. I am using the 2432 pid, which explains that/little piece of confusion.
Yes, I am using a standing pilot light with thermocouple. I liked the auto pilot, but found the parts expensive and I have yet to have an issue with my pilot light going out. If its that windy out to blow out my pilot, my burners will already be having a hell of a time to stay lit anyway.

I've been having a similar issue. currently I'm at work and have been searching far and wide for someone with the same issue. However, my burners don't light at all. No gas comes through the valves. I'm going to recheck my wiring with how you described it should be. Each valve is receiving 22 volts however. FYI the pilots work fine, but I know the pilots are a seperate line from the main inlet/outlet.
