Gas valve replacement for W.R. 36E97-201

Hi,
what gas valve replacement can be / should be used for
WR 36E97-201 ( Intercity Products p/n 1585987).

Present gas valve (16 years old) still works - it is in Intercity Products GUI Series - Model GUI100AO12FIN (Comfortmaker RPJ / II ) nat. gas furnace.

I could not find much information from White Rodgers web site.
I did find Heil Quaker 1585987 as listed replacement (on the internet) but the gas valve seems to look different .

Any information will be appreciated.

Thanks

Thank you for the information.

I did find the same or similar info on W.R. web site.

I am not sure if the 'goodmanmfg' web site will respond to my question since the furnace was made by ICP. I believe that ICP is part of Carrier ( I do not know that for sure) .

Perhaps someone had to replace that valve in their work experience and can post what they did use as a replacement.

The heating supplier suggested to use the Heil Quacker valve as a replacement - the WR 36E97-201 does not seem to be made anymore.

Thanks

Intercity products, Janitrol, and Goodman, are all the same company.

Carrier is to Bryant and Payne, Trane to American Standard

Contact customer service at the following e-mail address.
The gas valve you're looking for is still a good part (is not obsolete). Tell them in which state you live and they will give you a bunch of names/addresses/phones of places that would sell the gas valve for your furnace.

GP CAR ICP Consumer Response (ICP) [[email protected]]

If you live in NJ NY PA CT or DE, I have names/numbers you could call. Just let me know.

Hello again,

thank You for your response and your advice.
I have read a number of your posts ( other threads) and appears that You a very knowledgable and helpful person and I read ( and keep reading) your posts with great interest.

My knowledge in HVAC is somewhat limited even that I took classes for 6 months heating and 6 months AC, and then additional class to learn enough to pass the test to be EPA Certified for handling the refrigerants ( I got the "Universal" certification.
Some of my classmates actually started working in this trade ....... I just took the classes to learn something for my self and I am not planning to practice this trade.

My furnace is getting old ( same as I am) and I am sure it will require some parts before too long ..... or perhaps it will need to be repalced.
Every so often I see on ebay some parts that are reasonable in price ( some new, some used) and can be used in my furnace - that is why I did inquire about the gas valve.

I did find a local supplier that sells parts to 'do it yourself' .... but the prices are double or triple what I see them on the internet.

I live in Michigan and did find the gas valve in a local "do it yourself' supplier for 170 dol. Since I do not have to have yet .... I will let them keep it until I needed.

Pflor, I do thank You for your help and do appreciate it.

Wes
