I've replaced the gas valve and blower motor. I have photos if there's someplace I can send them.
By any chance do you also have the info on the solinoid? This would give me more options.
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
Nope, if I had that info we probably wouldn't be talking...
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.
Thanks, Lynn

I think I'd like to look at one at a local store before I order. Don't want to wait 1-7 days just to find out it's not it. (that's the way things usually work for me)
Thanks, Lynn
