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??

Hi you google the heater on line you might find the parts ! But 20 years is good for a heater of that age, 2 grand sounds a lot but the new one will be more efficient and cheaper to run , hope this helps

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.

Powers off immediately after starting


My immediate reaction would be to cut your losses and buy a new unit as sooner or later you will run into a part that is no longer available.

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 www.ereplacementparts.com 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 ....

Freezing up


This is unusual. How old is your unit and what brand is it? If it's not more than 20 years old, the parts should be available. This sounds like one of your defrost parts have gone out.

Oven heating element


Hello rvready
Welcome,


You said, We have an OLD (1950-60) Frigidaire wall oven, model # RBG-94. Bottom heating element has gone out. Oven is still in good shape so we'd like to be able to find an element replacement, but have had no luck finding one.

unfortunately,
I am not able to find this part either.
Anywhere. This oven is to old for parts. But most important is that it is causing you high utility rates!
Today's appliances save you the arm and the leg that such an old oven is costing you.
You have no idea how it is sucking your money out of your pocket!
It is unfortunate, that no one told you about this years ago!
You payed for more than one oven with your utility bill if you had it since it was new. My advice is do not put good money into bad!
Shop for a new one and see your bills go down.
my wife was telling me to replace the air and furnace for 7 years and I said, it's not broken. But it was over 20 years old. She was right, cause the new one saved me $100. a month!
That means I threw away $7000. in 6 years with my old world attitude.
Yes I am old fashion and always fix it!
But after 25 years of marriage. i finally realized she is a good evaluator and I was a fool to not appreciate her gift for all these years! And out tons more money than I told you about!

Hope I saved you some bucks with my real life stories!
Don't tell your wife!!!

Amana Air Command 80, 20 years old. Electronic ignition. Furnace does not start. Good power to furnace. Themostat properly set. Where do I start looking? Bob


Hello Bob,
Welcome to fixya,

You said, Amana Air Command 80, 20 years old.
Electronic ignition.
Furnace does not start.
Good power to furnace.
Thermostat properly set.
Where do I start looking?

Sounds like you possibly have one or more bad jets if the unit is a gas furnace!
Let me know how it goes.
Huuum

WOW, listen to this story!
I understand you are looking for the solution to fix your furnace your self.
But I want to tell you my story about my smart wife and our furnace.
When we moved into this house the furnace was 20 years old and she suggested that we put a new one that it will save us money.
I laughed at her and replied if it's not broken why fix it!
Six years later it finally broke down and I replaced the whole furnace and central air unit with a new one.
Our utility bill went down $100 dollars a month!
That's $7200. that I lost over 6 years due to not respecting my wife's power of reasoning!
If you can afford it or can get financing replace any unit 20 years old and it will pay for it self.
Can you imaging $1200. a year for 20 years is $24,000 dollars I'm saving with a new and efficient unit.
Do the math!!!!!!!!!

Thank You,
Huuum, Hope I gave you some good fatherly advice.
