I just got my G73. It comes with a new note that says "below 50 degrees the fan will cycle randomly (and might seem like its not working correctly) but once it is above 50 it will cycle normally." it uses that to let the element re-heat quickly to bring the room up to temp faster.

You should be able to google the manufacture and look for a contact us area where you can get a hold of them and order it unless the part is obsolete. They could have a universal replacement.

the air pressure is not correct on either units.the photo cell DOES NOT look for light any more,it count the light flashes.if the flame is not in the right possition the heater will shut down....after the unit ignites the ignitor is no longer used to keep the unit working,just the fuel that is being fed to the flame ball.that's why the pressure is so inportant.......

Pilot lighted furnaces have a thermocouple made from disasimilar metals that when heated create electricity to actuate a relay that alows the gas to flow to the furnace.
When the thermocouple gets coated with carbon from the pilot lights constant burning it acts as an insulator and keeps the thermocouple from getting enough heat to generate electricity, a very good safety factor.
What you have to do is locate the thermocouple it should be located over the pilot light, you will see a gray substance around the thermocouple it will be hard like cement, take a knife and scrape away as much of the gray material as possible then sand the themocouple with a medium sandpaper until it shines, use one of you wifes emery boards, this should solve your problem.
