In Topic: Lennox CompleteHeat AM30 Air Handler Module

24 October 2012 - 04:57 PM

Ok. I figured it out I paid some money and now I can write. Lennox Complete heat system Many say it is a piece of shit, but ours has been working great for 17 years...................until the water/air exchanger started leaking. Repair man says $2500 to fix......................Lennox parts which are scarce but available commands $1200-$1500 for the radiator. I was able to get a brand new commercial unit that I was able to install with modification. Coil is 3 rows (compared to the original 2 row) and the coil and misc parts came to $400. Took me approx 3-4 hours to replace myself, including some silver brazing. If anyone is interested I will post some pics.

I believed when these units first came out that they were a good Idea, certainly very efficient and the continuous supply of hot water is amazing. We have a 6500 sq ft house that actually has two air handlers.

I am going to replace the upstairs heat exchanger before it leaks.

PS. Do not waste time trying to repair, braze the unit. I did,and 4 hours later (not included in the above labor tally), it was still leaking. it is now full of holes by 30 well placed 7.62 rounds!!
