I am considering a 'Northstar' catalytic heater to replace the existing one that's giving me problem. The furnace replacement will still be on my list to do, but the catalytic heater install will be a quick, easy fix for the on coming winter months. Thanks.

I would recommend you consider changing both the guts and the box both. It is not difficult to remove the box, it is generally held in with only two screws in the bottom, near the front. It will slip right out, assuming that you are not one of the unlucky ones with a furnace with a shelf on top of it, and a bar in front of it.

Let us know how you make out.
Apologize for dropping off the radar about the furnace. Haven't tackled it yet - summertime. I did install a new Olympian catalytic heater and it worked well for the 'cool' winter nights here in the south. I do want to revisit the furnace eventually, just too many other higher priorities right now. One thing I have learned is to take the challenges at a moderate pace, one at a time. Otherwise, it turns into work.
