    That's a ways away but I'll see what the part costs and let you know on Monday. I don't really work on these but I do have access to the parts.

    The good news is you can change the part yourself and just bolt it in. The furnace electronics are pretty much plug and play.
    If you can find a carrier dealer somewhere around they could probably overnight the part to you.
    Also talk to carrier about the warranty on the part. Doesn't look old. You might get reimbursed.

    If you don't have any luck with the part in BC, let me know. My buddy is an Hvac tech and services carrier. We have a distributor in Edmonton.

    It came out pretty easily; less than 10 minutes. New one should be a piece of cake.

    1 4 pin Molex plug. I didn't even need my golden screwdriver!

    Here's to hoping.

    According to the serial number, the furnace was manufactured in '98, so that puts it about 17 years of service. The one HVAC company I found open on Saturday said parts shouldn't be an issue; they are generally available for given units for about 25 years.

    That's the one thing I miss about not being an on-the-tools electrician any more - I don't get to know any of the other trades guys who could help.

    I hear ya. Also an electrician, but not turning the wrenches anymore. I do a side job here and there to keep my skills up.
    From the pic of the combustion blower, I thought the furnace was newer than that.
    17 years is pretty good mileage. If you have trouble getting the part, we've got a carrier distributor here. They're pretty good to deal with. If you need the number let me know.

    I have an update and GOOD NEWS!

    I found out yesterday that a guy I used to work with has opened his own plumbing and heating company (about a month ago). Gave him a call, and he's got one coming for me for cost. Still 450 bucks, but that is a LOT better than the Joe-retail quote I also got yesterday of $775. If you're in the Shuswap and need plumbing or heating help, give James a call: http://axsonplumbingandheating.com/

    Also, a massive THANK YOU to Waynetheman who also was able to locate one for me, and was willing to go out of his way to make it happen. This place really does have a lot of great folks!

    If I had to pay $775 for a blower I would be buying a new furnace to replace a 17yo one. I'd even think about it for $450.......
