Customer Question
I have a comfortmaker...

I have a comfortmaker FBF075B12G1 model. Last year the unit would not ignite the flame, blower would come on the the ignitor would not work. I cleaned the ignitor unit with steel wool and all seemed fine. This year it started doing it again, however; it required cleaning about every other day. So I decided to replace it. I ordered part number ICP(###) ###-####but received part NUMBER Q3451U. It appears to be exactly the same with one exception. When you mount the unit in the furnace it is backwards. The hood was on the right hand side with the old part and is now on the right hand side with the new part. Will we explode if I turn the unit back on :)

Contractor's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

Definitely, just ask

hello,

can you post a pic with the unit installed so we can see correlation of pilot to burner?

sorry...but I cannot safely determine operation without seeing its position to flame spreader/burner.

I wish you the best
