two part question about Ducane condensate trap.

My forced air furnace a Ducane 50,000btuh was leaking water today and I start taking off the covers to trace down the issue, I saw that the CPVC pipe coming off the bottom of the condensate trap was broken clean off.
I started doing an search on google to find any local shop that would sell parts. I have address that I will start calling tomorrow.

My questions is about how much is this part going to cost, CDN funds (the whole trap)?
and are the shops going to give me a had time buy this as I am not a HVAC person?
I ask because I have been down this road before and buying parts was just a complete pain in the a*s I needed up going to a friend and 2 weeks I got the part but I would like to avoid this.

thanks

Are you talking about the trap on the side of the furnace? Are you running in heat mode? Can you post a pic?

right now running in heat mode, the trap is located on the inside of the furnace in the same compartment as the control board. pics below.

Do a search for Ducane or Lennox 92L83 or 92L8301. I think that's the part you're looking for.

thanks guys.... I went to a shop this morning and they are shipping one in over night, I'll grab it tomorrow, priced at $27.00 cdn.
They never gave me hard time, I guess because the part had nothing to do with gas....

So is there anything I need to know about this condensate trap? do I need to put a little water in it before putting it on? anything like that??

The one thing that made me rise an eye was when I told them the model and they reply was "she's an old one" ... hmmmm.... the house was built in 2001 really, that is classified as an old furnace... how long do they last for?

I recommend putting water in the trap at the beginning of the heating season. 13 years I would consider middle age, not old. Average life is about 20 years.
