Question Where to buy HVAC parts?

Hi!

I just cleaned my flame sensor (Lennox G60UVH-36A-070-06)-- seems to be an annual need in this house.

I noticed that, after using 000 steel wool to clean it, the sensor still has some dark marks on it. I am thinking it might be a good idea to have a spare.

My local HVAC supply place (one of the few that sells to general public) doesnt stock Lennox 'maintenance items'... Before I try the Amazon route, I was wondering if this forum had any suggestions for online retailers that sell OEM Lennox parts.

Thanks in advance!

I go at it from the other direction. Identify the part you want then search online for it and see what suppliers appear.

Clean your flame rod with a green Scotchbrite pad.
That is all I ever use and have never replaced a flame sensor rod.

A flame sensor is nothing more than a piece of stainless steel rod. It does nothing.
It's only used as a bridge from the flame to the burner.

If you have problems that appear to be flame sensor related.....you may need to investigate further. Confirm that the rod is engulfed in the flame. It can be slightly bent to be situated better in the flame. Check the screws on the burner. Make sure they are clean and tight. Very important..... make sure the ground and screws to the control board are solid.

I used 000 steel wool-- does the green pad do a better job?

It doesn't have to be spotless. You are just removing the clear glass coating from the rod.

When In doubt if the flame rod or the wire is questionable I disconnect the wire and use a jumper connected to that spade and clip the other end to a screwdriver shaft. Put the tip of the screwdriver in the flame. If burner cycles correctly then either the wire or maybe a cracked ceramic at the flame rod

sirk98,
I too use the green scotchbrite pads. Steel wool often has a very light coating of oil on it to prevent rust. I don't suggest steel wool unless it has been cleaned with a oil dissolving solvent,
