Suburban NT30-MA working like new

Pulling it out of my 79 Safari was the hardest part. Cleaned out the burner, checked the valve connections, and vacuumed out the rust. Reinstalled the furnace the way it should have been in the first place and voila! Heat.
Total cost= 0 dollars. Today was a good day.

So long as the heat exchanger is intact, no worries.


I would install a carbon monoxide detector, for a little peace of mind.


Regards,

JD

Did you check the connection between the burner and heat exchanger?

There was a recall due to deteriorating hose connection.

Not sure the material but it kind of looks like radiator hose

We have both carbon monoxide and propane detectors, thankfully.

You were lucky, Thom. The only furnaces I have seen from that era (including mine, that I replaced with a new one) were badly rusted out, AND had the old recalled crossover pipe.
