Basically the heavier gauge copper wire the longer they will last... are they exact replacements for the original thermocouple and you are following the correct replacement procedure i presume. sheathing on the wires of course will make them last longer as well.

as the furnace is that old i'm uncertain that you are able to get an original replacement. be that as it may if you can, find the specifications on it and find a good replacement and more durable replacement.

Sound like air flow problem to me, the inside and the outside. check the inside filter to see if it's clean and clean the outside condenser coils by washing it.

    I am thinking more along the lines that you have a restriction
    somewhere in the condenser sheet coil, or the condenser line coming
    from the compressor. If you have no suction pressure this would explain
    a restriction.I would check filters if you have them installed.

    On a side note the pressure of refrigerants change due to the increase
    and decrease in temperature. So depending on the temperature would
    determine the pressure of the refrigirant.

We have royal red furnace to heat our home.The fan dose not stop.


Details.......does the furnace function normally otherwise? Might just be a stuck fan switch. Make sure the thermostat hasn't been set on Fan ON setting or summer air circ. on older furnaces.
Find the fan switch and tap it and see if fan quits. If it does,fan switch is bad.probably. Always make sure your air circ. filter(return air to furnace) is replaced every 3 mo. or so,too. don-ohio (:^)

Be sure the thermocouple is still working, clean the contact points with crocus cloth and be sure the voltage going in to the controller is correct.

Is it cost effective to replace draft inducer blower on 22 year old furnace?


Depends on the cost to repair. Probably a 22 year old furnace is not very efficient also. Take every thing into consideration.
If it still works it may work for a while but you don't want a break down in the middle of winter.
