Model GE LU080A2M1
SN 779936 242
Installed 1974
I've replaced the gas valve and blower motor. I have photos if there's someplace I can send them.
Expert:  built1950 replied 5 years ago.
By any chance do you also have the info on the solinoid? This would give me more options.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Nope, if I had that info we probably wouldn't be talking...
Expert:  built1950 replied 5 years ago.
In that case you'll have to give me time to check with my industry connections, it is the weekend. They'll be open tomorrow. No guarantees but if it's available I'll find it.

I think we've had a misunderstanding here. What I need is the soleniod that turns the power on to the blower motor and times when it happens on the heat setting not the capacitor.
