What is a reasonable fee to install a new draft motor and ignitor into a furnace?

Make some local calls, get some quotes and you'll know.
There is no location in your profile so no one's going to know your local labor rate, no make or model so it's anyone guess what parts will cost.

Furnace repair costs


depends on

how long it will take to replace them/ travel time to where you are/ when you want it done / whether you want to have them installed properly with a full furnace check out/

So $806 for a new draft motor, igniter, and clean up of furnace would be way out of line?

Inducer motor assembly: $130
Ignitor: $25

Inducer motor has 3 mounting screws and one wiring harness to take off. Ignitor even easier. Do it yourself. Pay the man for his diagnosis.

From his previous post about an ice issue, it's a Lennox Elite. So those prices would be close.

No. Your original question didn't include the clean up of the furnace. Nor providing the parts.

Furnace repair costs


you can't really ask that question here and expect a direct answer.... Whoever it is that you are going to have do the work may have some outrageous labor rate and mark up on parts. IT depends on the contractor. IF you can have someone local quote you the repair you will have a better idea of pricing. If you post the question here... my price may be different than another contractor in a different market and we both may not be anywhere close to the going market rate in your area of the country.

You really need to call around your local area. Maybe you are in the sticks and it is over an hour drive time one way, maybe your furnace is in a barely accessible crawlspace.... we really don't know all the details to even begin throwing out numbers.

If you think you can buy and install the parts cheaper then go for it... If you want the parts installed that day by a contractor then you are at the mercy of whatever they decide to charge you unless you call other local contractors and get bids.

Yankee Stadium---53,325
Coors Field--- 50,490
Turner Field---50,097
Arlington Stadium---49,170
Comerica Park--- 41,255

hammerlane -

I would go for Dodger stadium because of the setting - Top deck, 3rd row directly behind home plate. Hard to know the difference between a pop fly and home run until the fielders make their moves and things develop.
