I need the model number of your unit. It's on the rating tag inside the burner compartment.

Where is the rating tag? I cannot find it in the burner compartment
Expert:  Rick replied 1 year ago.

It's usually on the side panel inside the compartment.

Rick, the response was too slow and I couldn't go without heat last night with a little one in the house. I called for help and problem was resolved. I will not be authorizing the charges pending. This service isn't what I expected.Thank you.

I'm sorry we couldn't help but it you didn't get back to me for hours. I got back to you in minutes. I'm completely blind here except for what you tell me and if you don't provide the info I need I can't help. Maybe things will work out better next time.
