Question about Williams 2509612 Ceramic Mid-Size Heater

1 Answer

I have a heatilator that needs a new valve

This unit is well over 20 years old, and I'm being told there aren't parts available to fix. The only choice I am given is to rip it all out and start from scratch. The estimate is "a couple of thousand dollars" and is from a reputable company. Help! Is this really my only choice??

Display Panel Light is Out

Bull, the cap is leaking all over the board and has damaged the control microprocessor. Good luck fixing that yourself. No parts available, sorry.

Have a heatilator direct vent GC300ST 15+yrs pilot woont stay lit think I need a thermoplie where can I find ? thk you

You probably need a thermocouple. Any local fire log sales store typically has a thermocouple in stock. If your system has a thermopile as well and is 15+ years old, I'd suggest getting anew pilot assembly and installing it. This way all the parts are new and you won't have to replace another part in 6 months.

My 7yr old Amana PTAC unit, Model PTH123B50AJ sometimes works and sometimes not. I had a repair tech check it & he told me the control board was bad and they wanted $440 to fix it. I told him no,

EBay often has the control boards for Amana heat pumps, and installing them is fairly straightforward, provided you have some experience with electronics, a soldering iron, etc. may also be able to sell you the part, which should run between $50 and $150.

Given, however, that the thermostat is also showing problems, as well as what parts are going for these days, I'd seriously consider upgrading to a new unit and selling the old one on Craigslist to offset the cost a bit. If you can find an HVAC technician, someone who's learning HVAC, someone who just wants it for a guestroom where it need not work perfectly or a landlord who can afford to have a secondhand unit fixed and put it in one of their properties for their tenants to buy your fixable old one for a few hundred dollars and a new one only runs about $700, your upgrade will cost less than having the 7-year-old unit repaired, plus you'll be recycling.

Model wl660800aj wont build any pressure hardly 10min 10psi took unit apart check valve appears to work ok valve sheets not broken but cylinder has light scouring and slight play no kind of seal apparent...

The piston should be tight in the cylinder and there should be no play between them. There should also be a ring at the top of the piston to seal it in the cylinder. You need a piston/cylinder assembly, part number WL211000SJ to fix your problem. They are a common failure item on oilless compressors and you can only buy them as an assembly, the parts are not available seperately. The part is available on but shop around the web, compressor parts aren't cheap and prices and shipping varies.

I need a CD/DVD tray for my Canon i9950. Unfortunatelly I lost the old tray. Can you help me to find one? thank you, Liv

Unfortunately replacement parts aren't readily available for this printer, as it's now 5+ years old. Even if it was new, companies like Canon rarely produce parts for products in this price range. To them they're disposable, and it's cheaper and easier in the long run to provide a new machine for warranty support than to stock parts.

That being said, you may have some luck searching sites like EBay for a used i9950 that you can use for parts. Otherwise you may be stuck purchasing a new machine with CD Printing Capability.

Sorry for the bad news. Good luck in your search!

Just had some work done on a Goodman GMPN060 and was told the heat exchange had a crack in it. Checked and the part itself is under warranty excluding labor. Just wondered how big a job it is and if...

you correct these heat exchangers are either warrantied for 15-20 years on the units... but the labor usually is not.... been appliance/heating /and air conditioning business owner for approx. 10 years now and in the business a little over 18 years .. the heat exchanger labor usually runs around 600.00- 800.00 when we do these jobs under warranty... it requires diassembly of practically the entire unit in order to do it correctly... and that usually requires unistalling the unit and re-installing in order to get the job done.,,, if the unit is over 12-15 years old we usually recommend replacement ,but does not have to be the finally result... as far as changing it out i won't say it cant be done by a home owner it is alot of screws and like i said requires diassembly of the burner chamber ,combustion motor ,flue piing,gas valve,any safety switches and wiring in the way...the heat exchanger is located on the burner side of the furnace in behind all this is the burner tubes and a plate that has to be removed to gain access to the heat exchanger. it not all that difficult just time consuming... as far as a diagram or step by step instructions i am not aware of any available.. they do have instructions in the new heat exchanger that gives a brief description of what required and a picture or two on it... 5k seems a little expensive too... i am in the dallas /ft.worth metroplex and we charge on the average 3500.00 to install new furnace unless there is special circumstances or going to be a real chore requiring several guys... hope this helps good luck ....

Any water heater that is leaking from the bottom needs replacement. A 20 year old water heater has given you great service, you are very fortunate.

TV won't start, red light flashing. It's a 20 year old TV

You don't give a brand or model or details about the flashing light (like if it's continuous flashing or some repeating number of flashes), so I can't give you any advice about the cause or possible fixes. Given the age of the TV, just about any part can go bad.

One thing I can tell you, though, is that it's probably far better to replace this TV than to worry at all about repairing it. At 20 years old, the picture tube is a prime candidate for failure, and may be why the set's not coming on. At the very least, the brightness and focus performance of a tube that old will be way down, so you're cheating yourself out of a quality picture.

There's also a good chance that major parts for a 20-year-old TV will no longer be available. While many parts are generic, others were specific to certain models and only available from the manufacturer. It's very frustrating to troubleshoot a set, then find that you just can't get the part anyway.

Having said all that, there are still people who service TVs and enjoy the challenge of keeping them going. If you want to keep this TV you're going to need a professional to diagnose and repair it. Check your local phone book or newspaper for contacts, and see what they have to say.

Good luck, and thanks for using Fixya!
