    Coleman old furnace ?

    I went on a call today Coleman model 7995-6561D. Anyways the board was weak flame signal so I checked burners and burner orifice seemed to be clear. Has no flame sensor and has a flat ignitor. But I am not sure what it is called but halfway up the heat exhnger is what I call a flame diverter it is round and has 4 mounts to heat exchanger. Well 2 of the mounts has broken off and hanging down which can't be good. Are those repairable and ca you even get parts for something like that? I checked for CO cause wher it was mounted at for screw or rivets there is now a hole in those spots. Does anyone have a diagram of this furnace of heat exchanger? I thnk the way this diverter is hanging it is throwing the pattern off the flame. Trying to talk him into a new furnace healready has had another contractor there and they never went into much depth as I did and never even looked at the heat exchanger.

    Is this a mobile home? Some of them use the hsi as the flame sensor.

    Yes but I know the round spiral ignitors uses the hsi as flame sensor but what about the flat ones do hey use the hsi for flame sensor? What about that flame diverter?

    That furnace is possibly late 80's, would need a serial # to be sure. you cant repair the diverters and seal them in correctly and say 100% percent it will not leak co some day. Your options are replace the Heat Exchanger, parts may be availble. I replaced one of them 5-6 years ago and it was a chalange to find parts. Today may not be any easyer. option 2 relace the furnace, due to the cost of repairs this may be your better option.
    Air conditioning to all and to all a good night

    I do believe that it uses the ignitor as the flame sensor. The other issue: Replace either the Hx or furnace.

    Yes I am more worried about that diverter that is only half way hanging on than the ignitor.

    Yes I belive replacing the furnace would be the best option. I told him I am not sure what is all involved into replacing the diverter and by the time I d all that with labor might as well replace furnace.

    I have an old manual on this unit that has a parts list. I'll try to email it to you later tonight.

    It's a big file (exceeds even email size limits), so I will have to try and split it up.
