Problem my sister had my brother install new gas forced air furnace.
He didnt convert it to natural gas, it would work for several hours
as needed then kick off and need to be reset. While trying to keep it
running he realized his mistake after 3-4 days. He then converted it
and it ran as it should for about a day and a half.
My sister then called a tech in to check it.
The heating tech says it is ruined and that a new heat exchanger is
$80.00 less than a new furnace. He states the exchanger can not be
Sorry I don't have the furnace name or information except it is 90%
If it matters I can get the information. I just don't want my sister
to get burned.
Located in the beutiful fingerlakes area of central NY.
Thanks in advance for any information.

Harsh people. Maybe deserved.I'll pass it on to my brother
I agree my brother should not have done it. A little late now.
Original thought. Can heat exchangers be "blown out" or cleaned.
I respect the pros that do this for a living and would not attempt
this installation on my own, and would appreciate a professionals
I realize I supplied incomplete information on the furnace and a
correct answear may not be possible.

Sounds to me like your sister got exactly what she paid for. No more,
If the heat exchanger is indeed ruined there may only be an $80
difference as the heat exchanger would not be covered under warranty
do the the mis-use and abuse it received from your brother. Thats not
covered in a warranty.
Maybe your sister could get her cousin to install the next one?
