Help with a Yukon furnace
« on: October 18, 2018, 08:10:49 AM »
 All, I am hoping that someone here may have more knowledge than me regarding a heating problem I have.
Two nights ago I fired my furnace, (Yukon Husky/Eagle) to put a little heat in the house just to warm it up slightly.

 A couple of hours later as I sat in my easy chair I realized, that the furnace blower been running for about an hour and why is it so warm in here? The indoor temp was 76 degrees and the thermostat was set at 70. I got up and looked at the stat, there was no call for heat on it. I went to the basement and checked out the furnace and the air combustion door was open and the furnace was burning away quite well but it should have been idling at that time.

 I started to diagnose what the problem was with it and concluded that there was a problem with the Solenoid that controls the air combustion door and it was stuck open. I actuated it manually and noticed that it was operating rough and felt "gritty". I lubed the shaft on it and got it operating with the furnaces call for heat and it shutting off when the stat was satisfied.

 So, it is running ok at the moment but I am concerned that the solenoid will fail during the coldest weather this year (isn't that always when it happens?)
I need I think to get a back up solenoid for it and Yukon wants 74 dollars for the unit. Seems a little bit steep to me for what should be a 22.00 dollar part.

To top it of the solenoid is difficult to get to and take off without removing the gas burner, etc. I cannot see its manufacturer or part number on it with it mounted in its location presently.

 Does anyone familiar with this furnace know who makes the solenoid and where it might be sourced cheaper?

 Sorry this post got so wordy and long.

Woodmizer lt40G28.  A kubota L4600 with loader and forks.
Various Stihl saws and not enough time to use them!
 Finished my house finally. Completely sawn out on by band mill. It took me 7 years but was worth it. Hardest thing I have ever done.
