Customer Reviews

Easy fix for furnace blowing cold air When I discovered my furnace was kicking out cold air and after a little investigation, I correctly surmised I had a bad ignitor in my Rheem Criterion gas furnace, so I purchased this and had it shipped overnight. The correct ignitor arrived promptly the next day and was easily installed in place of the defective part. I couldn't be more pleased that my broken furnace was repaired for $47 ($23 for the part and $24 in next-day shipping charges) when I would expect to have paid a heating & cooling company in excess of $200. I'm rather proud of myself all-around, mostly due to AC PARTS DEPOT's outstanding price and performance. 5Excellent product, drop-in fit for Rheem Criterion II First up, Amazon is awesome. I purchased this on a Tuesday at 3PM, it was to the door next day by noon.This product is a drop-in fit for a Rheem Criterion II furnace. I'd recommend replacing the flame sensor while you're in there.In order to do the replacement, the only tools you'll need are an extended slotted screwdriver or nut driver, and some gloves (getting fingerprint oils on the element will, much like some kinds of bulbs, create hot spots that will shorten the life of the element). This is a 5-minute task for a DIYer, and even a novice could probably figure it out. The previous element (OEM from 1997 for all I know) had cracked across one of the middle elements. If I can get another 17 years of use out of this one, I'll be more than happy. 5Worked perfectly - I love saving money on appliance repairs! I have now replaced the hot surface ignitor in my furnace twice in the time I have owned my home (~8 years). It is a pretty easy homeowner project (perhaps medium difficulty as it involves troubleshooting what part is broken, ordering the correct replacement, and turning off the power in order to work safely on the furnace).Sadly, on this latest replacement I broke the first one during the installation (they are *very* fragile / brittle) but I can't blame Amazon/The Seller/Manufacturer for that - I was not being fastidious about clearing a workspace, turning on adequate lighting, etc...So just be extremely careful while installing it to not crack it and you will be just fine. ;-)-Eric 5Quick and easy replacement that saved me hundreds! I'm a do it yourself-er within reason. When my furnace was not longer heating up, I investigated. I noticed the gas wasn't lighting like it should, and when I wiggled the igniter I saw it spark. I shut it all down, turned off the breaker and removed the igniter. There was a hairline break that was preventing it from lighting. After some investigation I found this one on Amazon and it looked just like the one I removed, even if it didn't have the same model number.It took me all of 5 minutes to install it and be back in working order. We were without heat for only 2 nights with next day shipping. I could have had someone come out and replace it, but I know I wouldn't do that for less than a $100, so why would I expect someone else to? I saved money by doing it myself, and now I know what to expect when it goes out again in the future! 5Works fine and was pretty easy to install Ordered this from Parts Appliance Chicago and it arrived on Fedex Smartpost in less than a week. Having the functioning upstairs unit while waiting on this part for the downstairs furnace made the short wait do-able.While the element looks slightly different than as-pictured, everything else, connector and the white element holder, was the exact same as original, and was pretty easy to install. Be sure to remove the bracket first (I made the mistake at first of trying to remove the single screw holding the element holder to the bracket). The bracket, at least on mine was retained by 2 1/4" sheet metal screws. I used a ratchet but a US screwdriver might work though it's tight in there.Of course be sure to turn off the thermostat, and cut power to the furnace before beginning (I have a light switch next to the furnace). There are a number of youtube videos out there showing the whole procedure. I took my time and made one mistake (the screw removal I mentioned), but still was done in 45 minutes.Most importantly, the thing works fine and I have heat again! 5Dont Order from North American HVAC Amazon needs to get their vendors in line (North American HVAC) You order an item based on the manufacturer and detailed description of the item listed (Protech). Protech is a O.E.M. quality manufactured part. North American HVAC substitutes a substandard China made piece of junk.In New York State this is False Advertising! 1Worked for 12 months I had to order another about a year after this one. It was shipped quickly, packaged nicely, and fit perfectly....however, I feel like it should last more than one winter season. I am not a professional HVAC person, but I'm positive I did not touch the element or bump it while installing it. There is no room for positional adjustment so I'm sure I did not have it pointing the wrong way or anything like that. I'm giving it 3 stars instead of 1 just in case of now and then early mortality as all products are subject to.Funny, but I came back to Amazon and clicked on this item....then bought the same one again. I received an equally nice fitting casing but the element was longer and more narrow. Perhaps a design change that is still considered a direct replacement. Hopefully I won't be coming back here again in 1 year to rate :). The replacement fired my furnace right up and so far so good. 3Fit perfectly! Let me start by saying I'm not mechanically inclined, but this was a very easy change out. I called all around locally and the cheapest I could find this or a similar part was around $70, so spending $10 more than the $22 list price for expedited delivery was fine with me. I googled how to remove/install the replacement part and there was a video showing how easy it was so I decided to do it myself and save a few hundred dollars. The video showed how fragile the part is, so I was very happy to see it arrive very well protected on all sides with soft foam in a small cardboard box. I simply plugged in the new wire, mounted the ignitor in place, turned the power and gas back on and it lit up right away! If there was anything to even remotely wish was different, it's that I couldn't get it sooner. When a furnace goes out in the winter, you really want it right away. Luckily it was fairly mild the few days I had to wait for the part, and really it wasn't that long at all. I believe I ordered the part on a Thursday Feb 27th and it was delivered by the following Tuesday March 4th. Amazon you should carry this item so it qualifies for Prime! No real complaints though, I'm very satisfied with the part and it's delivery. Thank you! 5Works. Given time to break-in + plug change. My old hot surface igniter (HSI) developed a crack in the element (common condition). This HSI runs well, and starts my furnace. Not without a hitch, though.I think it may require some time to 'break-in'. The HSI took more power to start when it was new, than after about a month of use. At first, my furnace controller would assume the HSI to be on, would blow gas, and not start. Lucky, furnaces are filled with safety devices to prevent gas leaks. However, when installing, make sure that your furnace doesn't blow too much gas without igniting. If you run into this problem, also ensure that your combustion fan runs. This will ventilate the N gas out of your system.Another thing: I had to use the plug off of my old (broken) unit in order to install. The HSI's were almost identical, besides the plug. This was a pain in the rear, but not a fault of the product.Overall, I was happy to save big time replacing the igniter myself instead of calling a furnace technician! 4Easy to install, fits Rheem Criterion II furnace This is one of the best do it yourself projects ever. After viewing online videos, I figured it was worth taking a chance on ordering the Protech ignitor, since the lowest price I had found for professional installation was $170. It was worth the risk as I installed it and had the furnace working again within about 15 minutes of receiving the package. The part fits our Rheem Criterion II perfectly. 5
