No, it will just keep your furnace from turning on. At least that's the problem I'm having right now with the bad thermopile in my floor furnace.

How millivolt switch works?

I am assuming that you mean switching a millivolt gas value. The switch applies a voltage to the gas valve thus allowing gas to flow. The voltage is provided by a thermopile. This device transforms the heat from the pilot into a voltage that can be used to control the valve. This system does not require an external voltage source. It does require the pilot to continuously operate. A thermopile consists of a number of thermocouples that are wired in series. This allows an increase in the voltage that would be provided by a single thermocouple.
