      [Webinar] Appliantology Workshop   11/09/2017

      Information is the name of the game in the appliance repair trade today. Appliantology is a powerful information tool for the professional appliance repair technician. But just like with any of the more capable tools in your tool bag, many of the more powerful features are hidden from you unless you "read the manual." Ugh! Who wants to do that? Well, this is one time when you don't have to! In this webinar, Team Samurai will personally walk you through the site and show you many of the useful and powerful features that even long-time users probably never knew existed.

Comfortmaker furnace G-U 400100 -12m need wiring help

Recommended Posts

chineena

Greetings;

I replaced the old Robertshaw Unitrol 7000 BER-1 24 volt gas valve with a White Rogers 36C03-333 and the relay terminals are different. The furnace wiring diagram is nowhere to be found. Can't seem to figure out how to connect the 2 black and 2 tan/white leads to the new valve.

Obviously, any help would be appreciated. I can post pics if needed.

Sorry for the delay. Preparing for visitors.

I'm referring to the 2 black leads coming from the thermostat and the 2 marked with arrows (may not be on the correct screws) from the 24v power supply. All 4 of these were connected to the old gas valve. The black were piggy-backed but I separated them. I've attached a diagram that I made minus the 4 leads in question.

I'm referring to the 2 black leads coming from the limit switch - sorry.

Thanks (I think) for the pdf but I can't install the executable on my Mac.

Dummy me, I clicked on the big download button which I guess was an ad.

I actually have that manual. Still befuddled.

Post a photo of your valve. I think you might have the wrong one. The terminals should have been the same.

More photos.

This furnace was installed in '85 so it's old. The Robertson Unitrol gas valve only had 2 terminals so the connections were simple. One black and the white to one terminal and the other black and the tan to the other terminal.

use terminal TH and terminal TR

TH-TR is a spare terminal for other connections if needed

One of them terminals don't do a thang like reg says. You won't get a reading between the dummy terminal and the other 2. So your 24 volts is goin to go between the 2 terminals that you get a reading from. Just in case you come across this again. Since you mentioned you had 3 terminals I wanted to be sure you didn't have a millivolt valve instead of a 24 volt valves. These valve come in a variety of different power ranges from line voltage ac to low voltage ac to millivolt.

Excellent. You verified my suspicions. The middle terminal does nothing.

Thank you gentlemen.

And the cards win the wild card!
