Hi ,

 

I'm showing that as needing a capacitor which may be the module that you are referring to. Are there two wiring terminals on it and a series of numbers resembling this

 

7.5 / 370

 

If that is the case you are able to buy just the capacitor. You can buy it on line.

Thanks

NO I'm A HVAC Technician and I know what a capaciator is. this module is attached to the back side of the motor on a Luxaire/moncrief/York Residential Furnace. info. on this module attached to motor is ECM 2.3 DG02 3/4 Hp 120/240v 09/29/04 8 ooo21817 GE INDUSTRIAL.COM/DEALER
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
this is a computer module that is attached to the back side of the motor and all furnace blower motor wires attach to this module to control the motor.
Expert:  Mark Henley replied 5 years ago.

Hi,

 

That's an ECM motor,

 

Electronically commutated motor, basically it's just a rectified DC voltage motor. You will have to go to York to get the part. It's on a variable speed furnace.

 

Thanks

I have taken this to a motor specialist and the motor is ok I Just need that electronic computer module not the motor cause the motor is ok like I said. My York dealer wants to sell me the complete package for over $400.00 when I only need the module, original question is do you know anybody that just carries the module that I can buy...
Expert:  Mark Henley replied 5 years ago.

Hi,

 

I understand you want to just buy the module. I just don't think you are going to have any luck doing it because it is an OEM part.

 

I think you're stuck buying the whole thing from York.

 

If I haven't answered your question don't click the accept button and you won't get charged.

 

Thanks

OK thanks!!!! that's what I actually wanted if you knew of anybody that could sell me that Module that is bad. WHAT a dumb design by YORK, this is the 3rd one that has gone bad on his furnace in 6 years
Expert:  Mark Henley replied 5 years ago.

Hi,

 

The funny part is the motor number crosses over to a condenser fan motor. Yeah you can't get around it that I know of, not yet anyway.

 

Thanks

 

Mark.
