Question about Dayton Heating & Cooling
How does failure to derate gas fired furnace lead to heat exchanger cracking. Would not inadequate O2 result in lower flame temperature and CO production?
Co2 would enter the room and not go up the flue , flame would burn floppy , or go out , derate I take it too much gas would not give correct flame picture too much gas to burn lack of air etc.

It may help if you increased the blower speed. It sounds like you have a restriction in either the return air duct or in the heat exchanger. Does it help to open the blower door panel. If so, you have confirmed a restriction. How do the burners look? Are they good and blue or yellow? Are the correct orifices being used for the type of gas? I know I am asking more questions than you, but it may help us with the answers. Good luck to you Wade.

Well yes and no. Let me explain, you can buy a replacement heat exchanger, or possibly get in touch with the manufacturer and customer service. Express your discontent nicely about the product and warranty and they just may send you an exchanger. I have been successful doing this with a high end television. Weigh the expense of replacement exchanger verses replacing entire furnace, then go with the best option. Sorry to hear about your luck it just does not seem right that at five years this should happen.

It's hard to say how long it would take to change the exchanger. It all depends on how much access they have all the way around the unit. I have changed them in outdoor units in about 4 hours by myself. but I have changed them on indoor units in about a day with a helper. The part it self does not cost a lot compared to a new unit but unless you are able to find cheep labor then a new unit might cost about the same. If you can find someone to do it for a set price rather then an hourly company then you will at least be able to compare new against repair.hope this helps..
