economite parts woes

Tim and gang, when it comes to the E20 burner motor, do I really need the oem part? i googled the motor # and found several sites selling the motor for a fraction what the local people want. A I missing something? It seems like there isn't any vendor in my county that stocks these parts which seems odd cause there's hundreds if not thousands of them in my area code. Thanks for the comments, Gary

    The truth is

    most of us replace the entire tray it is easier and less labor cost even though the entire tray assembly;y is not cheap. Here locally we have a supplier who provided the gas company with a lot of our parts so I buy them at cost.



    There is also R.L Gourley is in Mass (not in your area) but they have parts for E-20's. I would check if I were you with the local natural gas company in your area and find out if they buy locally.



    Answer to your question if the motor is the exact motor and fits and you can get it on the Internet cheaper go to it.

    ok

    Thanks Tim, I am as loyal as anyone when it comes to my local vendors, but the cost difference was startling. I did confirm it was the like for like- just the motor. Gary

    Gary many of those units are rentals

    We are not suppose to fix them as they are property of the gas company. You may want to check that.
    Cost is what you spend , value is what you get.

    yes

    Thanks for the reminder- we do certainly ask before we touch it. If they 'don't know' we tell them to go find a gas bill. For whatever reason a lot of people with these burners happen to own them. Thanks, Gary
