This unit went through 3 inducer motors. The first went after two years, replaced with one that went out in 2 weeks and the third went after 6 more years. I got a total of 12 years out of this furnace. The inducer motor was made by Fasco and was a Swirlwind. I located Fasco and was told that Luxaire was putting in the wrong type of inducers in this model furnace. I tore down the inducer and saw that the bearing were worn out, causing the turbine fan fins to hit on the inside of the motor housing. I think Fasco was lying and since these motors are made in Mexico, what can you expect. I bought a Carrier. Better, longer warranty.

"Looking for an Upper Heat Exchange unit"
While we have never had a problem with our g9t unit and we have been very satisfied with its performance, at 11 years old we are in need of a new Upper Heat Exchange Unit. Our local Luxaire authorized repair center placed the order 12/10/2009 and still have not received the part. They tell me the part is still on order to be received in the USA and that Luxaire has no current inventory of this part anywhere. Living in PA, it has been a very cold 4 weeks and I would really love to find this part asap. Can anyone tell me where I might find this part? Pls email me at email@example.com
