Exhaust Rusted Rheem Oil Furnace

So, wanted hvac guy to check furnace lately not been a good experience. The exhaust pan that connects to the flue of the furnace was rusted and the lip that the smoke pipe connects to fell off due to corrosion. HVAC guy saw nothing wrong!! Looking for a new one. Anyhow, this seems like an easy fix for me to do. My question is, where do I get the new rheem oil furnace exhaust pan part. I do not even know if this is what the part is called. If you look at the attached pic it is the chrome/silver pan at the top of the furnace that attaches to the flue pipe. Can I get parts from sears?

Thanks all. Name:  09104b.jpg

Yes....that is the unit rating plate complete with model number but my glasses aren't strong enough to read the model number off it.

The picture attached is a picture from google. It is my model but not mine. I need to know what the top silver plate is called that connects to the exhaust and where I can buy it.

Here is a front view of the silver steel box that connects to the flue pipe that I need to replace. I need to replace it because it is rusted. I don't know what the part name is called though? Or where I can buy it for my rheem oil furnace.

That part is often refered to as the "flue collector". A Rheem dealer should be able to get one for you but it's probably not a stock item & will have to be ordered. My question is why did it rust off? I've worked on those furnaces for nearly 30 years & never seen one rust off.

I believe that it is because my hvac guy has neglected my house. I noticed through the past few years that their has been alot of dew and moisture coming off of the ac vents and lines. Well, since they are on top of the furnace I think this caused it to rust through. For years he said no problem yeah right!

Is there anywhere else to get it besides a rheem dealer like sears?

The point I was trying to make was that if you posted the model number we could find a part number for you and possibly a place to buy it. I doubt Sears would have it.

I'm sure if you go to Rheem's web site they will have a dealer locator. Just look for one in your area. Any Rheem dealer can order it for you.

Tried that nearest one is far away. I just want to get a price in case it is very expensive.

I seriously doubt you are going to find one online. Try calling that dealer & ask if they will ship it to you & get a price before ordering. A local welding shop can fabricate one for you.

Not one to be found in stock. You'd have to contact companies like I've listed below.

Furnace and Hvac Parts.
North America Hvac

Grady's idea of a welding shop is a good one. You could also check with a local ductwork company.
