Clayton Outdoor wood furnace


I have a Clayton model 1800 outdoor wood furnace made in 1994. I think the control board is, as the blower will not come on when the furnace gets hot. I put a cord on blower and plugged it in to to an outlet and blower is working. US Stove bought Claytons parts inventory and they are sold out of control boards and limit switches and I can't find them anywhere else. My question is if this furnace can be fixed some other way or if something else might be wrong with it. Thanks for any help.

Ayuh,.... Get yourself a Fan Limit Switch Control for a hot air furnace,....

Wire the fan through it, 'n mount it wherever it'll see the heat, to turn on the fan...

Bondo, Thanks for your help. When I buy a limit switch, I know it will have wiring directions, but they can be confusing sometimes, so can you explain exactly how the blower should be wired to it. Does the thermostat get wired to it. I have some general knowledge of wiring, but any help you can provide will be helpful. Thanks
