Gas valve wiring question


Hi,

My dad has a GE furnace (yes it's old) that the gas valve went out on. We went to supply house and bought a Honeywell vr8300a replacement.

On the old valve it had the TH/TR and M - M terminal points. The M - M was for a fusible link with two red wires coming from it. However in the new valve it TH/TR and then only Convenience terminals, not the M - M.

What is the proper way to wire this?

Wrong valve.

But, you can wire nut the wire that went to the TH terminal to one of the reds, and the other red then hooks to the TH.
