replacement part for Aire-flo furnace?
 
Anyone know where I can get a replacement condensent drain box (the white box that all the condensate lines run into inside the furnance before it turns into a drain outside the furnace)... I need to move my line, and my current one was cemented with PVC cement to PVC pipe, which needs to be changed to the other side of the furnace, but I cant do that without replacing the box unfortinuatly with how they installed it..... :(

my furnance model is: AF92MPE125U5B

Cozyparts.com. They sell Lennox parts and AireFlo is owned and distributed by Lennox. Or you can come to Winnipeg for the fall colors and I will get you one from my Lennox depot. It is called a condensate trap. Needs to be washed out once every 3 yrs or it gets sludge buildup and shuts down the furnace.

Remove it and flush bleach, Javex/Clorox and hot water thru it.

Do you know if the aireflow is like the lennox in that the condensate trap has to be on the same side of the furnace as the exhast pipe? Only one I've ever seen was a POS air handler.

the model I have you can only put the trap on one side, there is only one cutout for it to fit into, but you can run the drain to the left or right, the exaust is on the same side as the trap

Lennox has a crossover drain kit for the G61 to switch the trap to the other side. If not the water returns down the exhaust pipe and fills the ventor in the off cycle. Not sure about the AireFlos. Don't see too many of them now that we sell mostly high end Lennox stuff. Going for SLP training Wed. Apparently the trap can be mounted remotely a foot or two away from the furnace on a wall. Check Davenet for the install manual.:thumbsup:

looks like the aire flow furnace I have requires the condensate trap to be on the same side as the exaust vent.....


to make things more fun for me, the installers glued the rubber tubes onto the trap and onto where they attach :icon_cry: tried to take them off last night to get the trap out....... ugh....
