Customer Question

Neal: I was impressed with your diagnosis in this exchange:
I have an Amana furnace with 50A50 288 control board, and the same symptoms. A HVAC tech came by and looked at it just as heating season ended, says it needs a new control board @ ~$700.
I think replacing it myself is well within my capabilities. Found used 50A50 288 on eBay for $45, with 14-day return.
Should I go for it?

Absolutely.Just take a picture of your old board so you remember where wires go. If you have questions after getting the board you can come back here for assistance if you need to.
