    I have nothing else, metal tag but it's eatin up. I'm with you, Im looking for a CF number as well so I was guessing number series has changed. This unit has to be pushing 30 yrs old.
  2. Can you help ID this very old Heat Controller Condenser

    Model 3254-1-18A is the number I can make out. Serial number is wasted.

    Thanks for your help if you can.
