I have some old singer electric heaters, and I need part for them.
Where can I buy parts for these. I checked their website, I guess they
stopped making heaters or something.
These are installed in a property I own.
Here is some info I found:
Model: WA - 20
Cat: 5990 - MP
Ph. Cy.: 1/60
Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.
You did not say what parts you need. There is almost always a universal,
generic part that will work. Usually you have to take the old part to a real
supply house and they can help you figure out what you need.
I have a 1978 Singer furnace and was able to find a replacement gas valve
with only 2 stops.
This is Turtle.
I use to install Singer Commercial hvac equipment years back and then
Arco Air bought them out. i install some of the Arco Aire equipment
then , ICP Inter City Products Bought them out. Then Arco Aire kept the
name but Carrier bought them out.
So Singer sold to Arco Aire, then sold to ICP , then sold to Carrier.
I know just about all the parts on these old Singers and if you like to
e-mail me and I can tell you about the parts you may need. Just about
all the parts can be replaced with Universial Type , Hiel , or Aroaire
Parts on those old Singer Units. I don't sell parts !
I have a garage heater that blue the transformer. This is the information I
Any information on where I can get one would be greatly appreciated.
Turtle's live a long time. But they don't post here when they're over
At this stage of the game, 35 years later, it's absurd to think you'll
be able to find the part based on the appliance youre putting it into,
unless Singer itself has it.
You should be looking for a motor that fits the space you have.
I was going to suggest
one of which is 240 volts, but they are only about about 1/100HP.
Still, that might be enough. See my notes inline.
No motor for non-industrial use is 1500 watts. That just shows how
silly it is to try to find a motor based on the label of the heater.
No motor for non-industrial use is 6.3 amps.
Nor is one 25 amps. My whole 6-room apartment including the
refreigerator motor and the vacuum cleaner when I used it was only 20
Or 2 horesepower!!
What does the motor do? What's wrong with the motor? Does the motor
have a name plate on it? With ratings? What does it say?
And trace the wiring to make sure the voltage on the motor is the same
as the voltage on the heating element. How many wires lead to the
Several years ago, Turtle postd that he'd
fallen off a ladder, and had some head
injury. Said the doctors don't know much
about head injuries. We've not heard much
from him since then. Hope he is okay, but
I doubt that he is.
Sounded like a good guy, and usually treated
me kindly on the lists.
