Ready Heater Model R40

Recently my ignitor broke on my keorsene ready heater. No one in town
had the part. I stopped at a local wholsale heating and cooling supply company.

I looked at there ignitors and came across a white rodgers universal
igniter. Took it home and installed it with no motification. Unit works great.

the center heating element is no working. How much does a replacement element cost?

the price will vary in different localities.

you should call a plumbing wholsaler in your area. Home depot and Lowes will not carry these, neither will you local hardware store.

the replacement is faily simple. Eemax is a nice heater, although faily expensive to opperate.

goodman furnace ignitor works, blower starts up but no flame, no heat ignitor glows then everything stops

sounds more like a pressure switch problem. If the pressure switch does not make, then the furnace will not attempt to light. Its a safety feature on residential furnaces.

Check the pressure switch and hose for obstructions. Clear any and attempt to re-light. If still not successful, its time to contact a local service company to check the gas valves and electronics.

will not ignite fan runs

Take the cover off, if its anewer one it is probably a glow coil ignitor.
Plug unit in, if it does not glow then either the control board where the
ignitor terminals plug in are bad or the ignitor is bad.

You can either apply 120volts directly through the ignitor leads if you
are electrically inclined and see if it lites up. If it does then part of the
board is bad. However you can tie into line 1 and nuetral and not use
ignitor terminals on the circuit board.

If you need a replacement ignitor you will have a hard time finding one,however I used a White Rodgers 21D64-2 Universal Ignitor Kit
that I got from Johnstone Heating and Cooling Supply Company.
My heater was only 3-5yrs old.

Our Raypak pool heater is 14 yrs old. This year

What you probably need, you may be able to install yourself and save some$$$. It's call a thermocouple. It's a long thin tube that has a probe bulb at one end and snakes it's way back to the gas regulator.14 years is plenty of service to get from one of these.Don't laugh, but often times you can find a good one on anold gas heater in the metal pile of your local dump. It's worth a peek. If not get one of your heat and cool contractor friends drunk, then ask him to pick one up at the gas company. Town laws vary greatly from town to town. Here in Provincetown we can hardly change a light bulb without a permit...lol. Good luck, I have faith in you. Thanks Dana.
