    Oh, I can't wait! yeah right.

    went out to a church yesterday for a no heat in the sanctuary. Found this little jem. Bad heat exchanger in an old carrier. not too suprising but a look at the second picture tells you why its posted here. And um... just how am I supposed to get the heat exchanger out?! I can barely fit in there as it is. and the dark spot on the wall is the special spot where the exhaust from the heat section is recirculated to the burner intake. Ingenious, a primary and secondary all in one. Think we'll need a crane for this one.
    The third pic has nothing to do with this job i just thought it was funny, took it last fall next to the G.M. plant.

    Have fun!!Kind of makes you want to find the mastermind that designed that set up and smack him huh?
    Relax, all right? My old man is a television repairman, he's got this ultimate set of tools. I can fix it.

    I used to keep a 20 lb sledgehammer in the truck for those types of installations. HO didn't like it but, they didn't like not having heat all winter more.

    Absolutely change the unit, not the HX. And, now is the time to correct the positioning of the unit.
    Everyone has a purpose in life..........even if it's to be a bad example.

    My thoughts exactly. Just shot them a quote today to do just that.

    Yeah, really. There's no room to get in that compartment with tools muchless a heat exchanger.
