No AC last night


After a power outage yesterday, it appears that it took out one of my furnaces: Rheem Criterion II LXE model RGPL 10EBRMR

I noticed that the condenser was on for a long time and got to checking and no air discharge from the ducts. I shut the system down for 30 minutes and no luck upon turning it back on, the furnace is dead.

The unit does display 2 green lights, like my other that works, so I want to assume here it is the module in the ECM motor and not a main board?

Thoughts please?

Well digital, no need to panic that's for sure. According to the National Weather Service it's looking as if you may not need anything except possibly a fan for awhile.So hopefully there is time to shop around for parts and repairs.

Update


So I had an old motor and module from a previous similar event 6 years ago on the other unit. When this one went,I bought a whole new motor and module because I did not know modules or fixes were available.

On the first one, I bought the clearly blown/burned thermister and replaced it. So I took this repaired unit, installed it and BAM it works!

Great the wife is smiling!

Now for the followup: The removed module has no indications like the first one that was repaired,of any burned or blown electronics, but it is clearly the problem. SO my question is: How do I test the thermister since it is not indicating any burn marks on the board or bloat?

Question:

Should I buy this newer replacement Genteq 51-104906-10 manufactured in 2014, which I found on a website that indicates it is a replacement for Protech 51-24383 80. Or should I buy an old stock but new protech manufactured in 2007?

Not sure it matters. Not real familiar with Rheem VS blowers though.
