HASH(0x9e611a5c) out of 5 stars Damaged Delivery May 29 2013

Out of the box damaged when trying to get my heater back up and running in the winter... NO FUN. The product is not an OEM replacement, but would have been suitable for the job had it arrived in working order. I had to repair the wiring harness in the field before installing to ensure it would work which meant partial disassembly to resolder the connection. The time to replace/reorder was unacceptable and a better Quality Check at the factory would have been better and not earned the one star rating that I'm giving this product. It's a simple enough product to ensure that it works before it ships.

I recently had a short in my furnace and it fried 3 different things the gas valve the pilot safty switch and the fan control board. I bought all three items from HVAC Mega store and was very impressed with everything. The parts were a perfect match. The delivery was unbelieveably fast and the price was a third less than any other store. I would definately recommend HVAC Mega store to anyone. Thanks!!!! Rich C from MN

Item is not an OEM replacement, but is very close to the original. Unfortunately, it's not close enough.
The ignitor mounts on the side of this with two metal tabs and a screw. That is not adjustable since it can only slide back as deep as the slots are long. If the ignitor is too close to the pilot shield, the resulting cold arc is NOT enough to ignite the pilot, as difficult as that is to believe at first read.
(another review here had the exact same problem)
We rigged the ignitor with stainless wire to test this out, and it fired on the first arc! When you compare the original to this one, it's very obvious that the shield is much closer to the ignitor.

Do not try and bend the ignitor conductor... it is brittle and will snap, then you just have to buy and ignitor on top of having a pilot assemby that won't work. In the end, we decided to bend out the very top of the pilot shield to get enough arc gap. 3/16 - 1/4' is about right.
But, we just voided the warranty or any possibility of return by doing this.

It worked great all winter! was a little hard to get in, but that was carriers fault. Got to be carful you don't loose the orifice because it is loose where the pipe screws in

It was exact replacement for failed OEM pilot. Prompt delivery. Perfect fit. Installation not easy due to furnace construction, but no complaints about pilot.
