    Liquid Pipe Dope?

    It looks like someone got to the very bottom of their pipe dope and added paint thinner.

    Also, Jbox cover missing and control voltage wires ran between blower door and furnace deck.

    Another quality install by Sears.

    just too sorry to stir up that gasiola white, and too sorry to wipe off the excess.
    It`s better to be silent and thought the fool; than speak and remove all doubt.

    Furnace was a Kenmore, which looked exactly like a Carrier/Bryant/Payne/whatever else...

    Sneer's Kenmore and Craftsman lines are product that they just slap their name on. I you ever look at one, first three digits of the model number tells you who made it for them.

    G8MXN0902116A1

    Gas, 80%, Multipoise, ECM motor, 90K BTU, 21" wide, 1600 CFM, engineering unit and revisions.

    Mfr. by ICP, whose Acroaire and Comfortmaker brands can trace their roots back to a furnace company right here in St. Louis in 1900. My old AC equipment was Arco/Snyder-General. Lasted 25 years along with an old Bryant barn burner.

    I forgot to include that one of our techs noted on our service sticker (with a question mark) that there was a 3 1/2 high side with a 3 ton coil.

    Does Sears actually do their own work up there? In a lot of areas it's just subbed out.
