international heater co. model OLS-111F oil furnace

28 September 2014 - 09:24 PM

This is my bro in law and sisters furnace. I know this thing is pretty old. I'm doing a tune up on this since they just bought this house. I don't really work on oil furnaces, but these are designed just like the new generation heaters I worked on in the military. The model says what I listed on the title. It has another number which is CS195-60 at the top of the data plate. From what I gathered this is a 60% efficient.

Does anyone have any idea who manufacturered this unit, or a part# for a set of electrodes that will work on this. The electrodes appear to be about 6 inches from the end of the threads to the tips. They have two long flat bars that hook on the back. It would be nice to replace those too since they are a bit pitted.

oven temperature probe

20 September 2014 - 08:24 AM


Ok, we all know I'm a refrigeration guy, but I will be working on everything at some point. I was on a call with another technician on a double wall oven and I was doing the fridge. He uses an insulated probe to his meter and wraps it on the oven rack so the tip points up. He has a craftsman meter and his probe looks like it has a fiberglass jacket. All I have is the regular fluke brown style. Will that style melt on an oven rack? The jacket looks to be plastic. I was looking at ordereding the cooper-atkins probe I posted above. They make good probes for hvac and this one has a fiberglass jacket. Any thoughts on this probe?

Supco LT2 data logger

09 September 2014 - 06:05 PM

This is directed more towards Samurai. I just bought this data logger. I was looking at a different model data logger because it had two probes but I saw you used it in two different sections. I would assume you used the internal logger in the fresh food and the probe in the freezer correct? I'm just asking because the paperwork shows the logger temperature range to only be from 32 to 140, and the probe sensor is -40 to 150.

Built in Kitchenaid ridiculousness

19 August 2014 - 10:02 PM


So I came upon this refrigerator today. Someone cut out the hot gas drain pan loop as well as the mullion. Then crimped the hell out of the mullion lines. Then they installed this bad boy I posted above. This heater pan was wire nutted to an extension cord and plugged into an outlet being powered 24/7. This pan heater burned a huge spot on the floor underneath and melted his jerry rigged drain tubing haha. Who does this kind of crap!?!? Needless to say we told them we aren't touching this mess.
