No not 94 its an 81. Third and fourth digit of serial number is year of manufacture. Trane purchased GE in 1982. Would definitely insist that an HVAC Company do an inspection as I find that these heat exchangers crack in several places. In the back where it tapers. In the front above the burners where the clamshells are welded to the burner box. The weld joints at the corners of the burner box. Welds visible only on the outside of the burner box behind the heat exchanger vestibule panel. And occasionally on the dimples in the top section of the heat exchanger and rust perforations through the top of the heat exchanger

Thank You Gary! I just got off the phone with the agent and the buyer to let them know that I aged it wrong. Time to type up a quick woops I goofed letter.

Something that may help many of you to figure out the dates on a lot of equipment is the A.N.S.I. date, if there is one. More often than not there is an ansi date on heating and cooling equip. and on water heaters. ANSI is the organization that writes the standards the equipment must live up to. They modify these standards every five years…If the ansi date is 1980, that means the equip. you are looking at was manufactured between 1980 & 1985… So if you are not sure about what your getting from the serial #, cross check with the ansi. date.



Those that say it cannot be done should stop interupting those of us who are hard at work, doing it…
