Someone worked on my furnace and removed the "Burner
motor/pump/transformer/igniter assembly" from the furnace. Three bolts were
loosened, the oil line was disconnected and the assembly was rotated
slightly to gain access to the combustion chamber. While doing so, the
gasket between the combustion chamber and the assembly was destroyed. The
original gasket looked like a normal type of gasket. He replaced it with
"Combustion Chamber Lining." It's called "Kaowool" and manufactured by a
company called "Lynn." This material is wet and the instructions state that
it's supposed to be used to line a fire chamber.
Are there any oil furnace technicians out there that would actually use
"Combustion Chamber Lining" instead of a gasket that is designed and or
specified for the job?
I am very concerned whenever someone modifies a machine that can kill if it
