Customer Question
I am having trouble...

I am having trouble finding a replacement part for an armstrong ultra sx 80 propane furnace. I can't find the name of the part,even called parts suppliers. supplyhouse.com looked it up as VESTIBULE PANEL cross referenced to lennox (it was much too small). My furnace has a cracked panel (behind the pilot assembly) that is about 16 inches by 20 inches and includes both the gas vestibule entry and the exhaust fan mounting. PLEASE, WHAT IS IT CALLED, and if you know where to buy it? Can i find a parts diagram online? model GUJ100D12-2B serial # 8496H11772 thank you

Contractor's Assistant: Did you check the furnace's filters?

Yes

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I am replacing the heat exchanger as well. found one at midwest hvac

Hello, so far it sounds like the heat exchanger, send me a close up photo of it so I can see what you have.

Meantime do not run the furnace, it could be very likely be a carbon monixide hazard.

.

Use the 'add files' link next to your send button to get that photo to me. we can go from there

I have determined that the panel is unavailable from other sources so i am buying a new furnace. thank you for your time
HVAC Technician: Phil, Mechanical Engineer replied 11 months ago

Hello, I think the 'panel' you are referring to is just part of the heat exchanger... the heat exchanger is replaceable, however on older furnaces those sorts of repairs are not always a good idea. I think your choice to get a new furnace is a good one.

To close the question just click the 'finish and rate your expert..' link near the top of your page.
