I have a Hunter (now owned by Empire) wall mount Furnace Model

Customer Question

I have a Hunter (now owned by Empire) wall mount Furnace Model GW50 - 2. It has a SIT 630 EUROSIT gas valve that is giving problems. Max pressure is 1/2 psi and outlet pressure is 10" WC. I would like to change over to a Robertshaw gas valve. Could you give me the model # ***** the equivalent valve.
Regards

Hello,
does your version have both thermocouple and the thermopile? And how much extra room do you have for a longer valve?

Yes I have both a thermocouple and thermopile and lots of space. I was thinking I would change it to a robertshaw model no 710-205.

That is exactly where I was going pending you had the millivolt version and room. Some were limited with 90 degree valves thst were very tight.
If you have room, the 710-205 is great. It has the longer cap tube. Just make sure to convert to lp as it ships ng but has the lp capability
