    Saved $500 doing it myself...

    My local heating and cooling company came out to tell me something that I already knew, but I wanted to make sure I was right. They told me that I needed to replace my ignition panel. The technician told me that he would need to check with his supply department to get me a price for the unit. He called me back with a $650 price tag. This was both the product and install. Needless to say I was a little shocked. I confirmed the product ID with the parts department and looked online for myself.I was in disbelief when I found it for $135 (product plus shipping). This means that they were going to charge $515 for 30 minutes worth of work. As an avid consumer I cannot take this. I am a novice home repairman and have very little training, but was able to install this with little problem. I did not install the new pilot ignition wire, as the previous one was still working. I will hold onto that incase it breaks in the future.One of the biggest things that helped on... 5/5 Chris - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

This review is from: Lennox 30W33 OEM Ignition Control Kit A Lennox certified tech could not figure out what was causing my furnace to intermittently not light or to go out. It seemed obvious that the igniter control was the issue. I bought it on Amazon and it was a relatively easy replacement.

    Brought new life to a 20 year old furnace

    This is my first review on Amazon. I decided to post it because the other reviews for this item helped me make my decision to purchase it.I have a Lennox G20 furnace that recently stopped working all of the time. My house will be 20 years old this year and as far as I know, this is the original furnace. I was hoping I wouldn't have to replace the entire thing, and I thought I had narrowed the problem down to a bad switch in the thermostat because if I switched it from heat to off and then back to heat, it would work for a while. I tried a new thermostat, but the issue continued. I now know that turning it off and then back to heat just told the furnace to try again when the old ignition control would not try again for a long period of time if left uninterrupted.Based on my research, I decided to replace the Robertshaw 97H04 that was in my furnace with the Honeywell 30W33.

This review is from: Mallory 605 High Performance Unilite Ignition Module (Automotive) Performed some elecrtrical rewiring of my engine compartment, leaving the distributor plugged in. Afterwords the car would not start, traced it down to the module, using the mallory test procedure on their site.Replaced with this new module and the car fired right up just like before!Im a little disapointed in these unilite modules, seems they short out very easily from other reviews i have seen online. I will definitly unplug the 3 pin connector before doing any work in the future.I did purchase and install the mallory power filter this time. Hopefully this one last's a while, i have heard of others replacing 2 or 3. At $80 a pop that can get expenive over time...Super fast shipping.

    0 5/5 Jeff Haines - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Honeywell R8184G4009 International Oil Burner Control (Tools & Home Improvement) Last year the fuel oil furnace started running funny. Kicking on for about a minute, not blowing out any heat then shutting off. (Sucks in November) Did some research and was about 99% sure this and the accessories is what I needed to fix it. Just to be sure, I called the furnace people out to do the yearly clean and check and sure enough this is what I needed. He went to his truck and got the prices. A.K.A. the Christmas party money quote and said it was going to be around $500. Me: O.K. Thanks for coming out. Him: Don't you want me to fix it? Me: Uh, no. Seriously, I am handy at nothing. Just ask my dad. Bought this, the wiring and some other little part, put it in and it worked. Just check online resources before paying these jackwads a lot a money to do something simple. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 3, 2010

    Do It Yourself and save $$$

    I had the exact same experience as Jeff Haines' review. I also am NOT a fixit guy. Jeff's review, plus the fact that my quote was $700, prompted me to at least try fixing it. I mean, it's half broken, then making it completely broken won't matter as much.In addition to the $700 quote, the technician did note that my furnace was extremely old (it is) - and that fixing this one thing doesn't guarantee something won't break later. I admit - I think the furnace is older than I am...However, my technician was also telling me that it shouldn't be kicking on and off - this was before I found out it was an intermittent control. So there was no way I letting this guy near my oil furnace again.The main thing with my furnace is that it ran fine except when the temperature dropped below feezing. Then it would trip, I would get up, reset it, and anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour later, it would trip again. So I have many warm nights, but cold mornings around... 5/5 steviecool "steviecool" (VA, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Works great (or did for a couple months)

    This appears to be a newer version of the controller that was in my furnace when we bought our home. I suspect there was an issue with the relay or the lockout component on the original controller. This one is physically heavier and seems to be better made. So far, we have had no issues since installing this new controller.What can I say? So far, so good. Everything is working as it should.----------OK, jump forward to January 21, 2014. Trying to get to sleep when the relay starts popping just like the originals. Seeing the "Improved Design, Two-Year Warranty!" on the box I tried to get it replaced. What a joke, don't even bother. After 4 hours of trying to return this and talking to people all over the world, I come to find out that you have to be a Honeywell authorized contractor to return one. Closest contractor to me? A one hour drive. I called him anyway. He said he wouldn't give me another one of these period. That they are junk... 1/5 Ted Parvu (Ely, MN) - See all my reviews, April 7, 2013
