    are you talking

    the motorized air shutter? Haven't had any problems as of yet. The hydaulic jack type would weep some after time. Is that what you mean?

    Electronic shutter.

    Was it recently redesigned? I know no one has an issue with them except they wear out and you slap a new one on for 150.00 every couple of years when they start spinning round and round.

    In my case, that switch held the burner on untill it went off on high limit. It was a bear to troubleshoot it too. I jumped it out and removed it. I'd be willing to replace it if Reillo redesigned it.

    After opening it up and disecting it, it is by far the worst piece of electrical crap I have ever seen. Those 2.00 light switches they sell for residential are made better. They are not safe in my opinion.

    If you do use one, make sure to power it after all the safety's and make sure you trust your high limit control. You may need it.
