    Experience - knowing when to get the hell out of the way and plug your ears. "Don't be a sissy. Turn it on!"

    Glennac - Failed my biology test today: They asked, "What is commonly found in cells?" Apparently "BL*** people" wasn't the correct answer.

    Someone must be making these PTAC for these manufacturers as in both recalls the same manufacturers are mentioned.

    Ive never seen one else I'd dig into it to find the OEM. This came across my "recalls" subsection of my phone news app.

    The model number prefix. It's not a furnace. It's a PTAC for this recall.

    Goodman makes the PTACs. Was US, now Mexico. They made for Heat Controller in the past though I think they switched to Gree. Never seen a York branded PTAC.
