I recommend the nationwide
as a source of parts. However before Sept. 11 2001 it was difficult to
get parts in some parts of the country. Georgia seems to be one of the
worst offenders even though some of the nicest people seem to come from
there. Now it has become impossible without selling your first born.
I have also discovered that most supply houses sell their
share of parts to the state and federal governments and I can't help but
wonder if it is done to keep them in line. Since this may become
a major problem we will start selling and shipping parts soon (see below).

R.E Michel Bristol
Ct. off of Pautuxent Range road in Jessup Maryland, headquarters in Glen
Burnie. Sells Coleman/York and lots of duct work pieces and fittings. I
go there any time I need pieces of sheet metal as well as a good selection
of motors and other controls. They have a huge selection of oil heating
products including replacement parts and accessories.
They also sell the Unico High velocity Air Conditioning
You will have to set up an account with them to buy from
the stores, it is worth having.
Hours: until 4:30 pm.
If you are not a contractor and want
to buy your own equipment you can have good equipment drop shipped to you
from the local distributor by contacting the Air
Conditioning Exchange aircondex.com .
I was sent these links for Coleman Evcon parts. Keep
in mind that Coleman is now part of York which includes Frasier Johnston,
Luxair, and Air Pro. Johnstone
supply is a distributor for this Family of equipment.
I am sending a few of the sites that seem
to have Coleman/Evcon:
Also United Products in Baltimore Maryland Formerly a
Carrier dealer. Sells York, Coleman. Did sell Crystal Tips ice machines
now they sell Cornelious. To get parts for Crystal tips in Maryland contact
Nelco of Laurel Maryland. Just about every HVAC supply house sells ice
machines of a particular brand.
Boiler other industrial heating supplies:
The Boiler Store and R&J supply both in Hyatsville
Defrost and Fan control modules. International
Controls and ModulesICM
of Syracuse NY. makes an arsenal of after market controls that are much
more reasonable that the OEM. They even make the defrost boards for Goodman
and I suspect some others.
If you need a board for Carrier/ Bryant they start
at $100 and go up for OEM while ICM
has them for a lot less. So they don't copy the OEM they make a few minor
wiring changes that will not be a problem.
Specialty Thermostats PS&G(graphics
heavy), Home of the Accustat and duct limiter. They also make some
very fancy thermostats with remote sensors and occupancy sensors as well.
If you want something tamper proof look at this line of controls.
Out of our area, here are some links to parts, more added
as I check them out:
Blower: usually a squirrel cage centrifugal air moving device. Will move
large volumes of air relatively quiet. Will use less energy with more back
Fan: a paddle type air moving device used where noise is not a major consideration.
Will use more energy with more back pressure.
Combustion blower: A blower used on high efficiency gas furnaces or oil
burners to move combustion air. usually 1/20 to 1/6 horsepower.
OEM: Original equipment manufacturer.
Horsepower: 746 watts
RPM: revolutions per minute.
Service factor: the extent to which a motor can be safely overloaded beyond
its name plate ratting without over heating.
Air over horsepower: The rating of a motor assuming air flow through the
windings usually as a result of the air moving device.
SAE: Society of Automotive Engineers.
High efficiency furnace: Furnace that uses over 85% of the energy in the
Condensing furnace: Gas furnace that uses over 92% of the energy in the
gas and condenses the gas into liquid condensate and hot air. If your furnace
has PVC pipe venting it then you have a condensing furnace.
