    The fact that Johnstone Supply will be adding the Fooler to their catalog should be a great boost.

    How about posting a photo of your counter display with the fooler depressing one of the switches or foolers depressing all of the switches.

    Mine am going to J/B weld a small machine nut on the outside so I can run a screw down and adjust to close the Amana blower door switches that are recessed.


    How about the RSES Journal

    Thumbs up The Mullenix Tool

    I invented a tool that works great at bypassing the interlock switch to test furnaces. It's called The Mullenix Tool. You can get it at Johnstone Supply on the west coast. It's a clip that has the strongest earth magnets on one side to hold onto the furnace while the other side depresses the interlock switch. It really works great and frees your hands.

    Thought I would post an update on the Furnace Fooler that I just discovered.

    The Furnace Fooler was being repd by ESP, but apparently the creator of the FF had a falling out with ESP, so he is selling it independently on his own website until he finds a new rep.

    You can check out his story and the Furnace Fooler at:

    Anyone have a good (free) solution for the new-design Yorks?
    1/4" nut driver saves the thumb but you still need to hold it.

    The Mullenix Tool

    I bought two of them (one for each hand, haha) from Johnstone in Tigard Oregon for about $8 or so each. GREAT IDEA, WELL WORTH IT !!!! I wish I would have had one 30 years ago. So simple, quick & effective. I own Jarrell's AirCare NW in Hillsboro.

    Thumbs down

    I got one direct from the source and it does not work on many units!!!

    also, the magnet came off the T bar within a couple days.

    the Mullinex tool may be better, but all the links have poor photos of it in action.

    pacnw, just out of curiosity, would you care to elaborate on what units it won't work on for you.

    I've only had one unit that even gave me problems, a Consolidated 80% unit, and I still made it work at a funky angle.

    As far as the magnet coming off, did you try contacting the guy to see if he would send you another one? Although for ~$10.00 I would probably gorilla glue it back on and not say anything personally.

    I do not know which ones, I was not keeping track.

    The issue was the door switch was too strong, the long round ones I think, and would knock off the Fooler.

    I do think there were some that there seemed to be no angle to get decent enough metal to magnet contact and still activate the switch.

    And for the cost, regluing would be my solution, too.
