Does anyone have a manual for a Suburban furnace model # GT 10D
It has a manual pilot light with a manual gas control valve knob from low to high.
Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks, MIke

Maybe here? I see a page by page manual for the Suburban models models GT 10A,GT 10W
GT10A LV, GT10A RV, GT10 W LV about halfway down the page

SCOTTY CAMPER ENTHUSIASTS - Manual Documentation

Maybe they're similar enough for your manual purposes?

Thanks Donna, your great. I did find the same manuals.
This furance I believe is a gravity type / radiant type furnace, not forced air. It has a piezo igintor, pilot light and a manual gas control valve.
Very simple, I think I will clean it well and, hook up a gas line which is missing and give it a try.
If pilot doesn't stay lit I will replace the themo couple.
It only has a limit switch, thermo couple and manual gas valve.
If anyone has worked on this type furnace? pitch in.
Thanks

mszabo,

I would not go straight away and buy a thermocouple, the test for that beastie is to remove the old one, heat the sensor end with a propane torch until a dull red color, take a volt meter set to the milli volt scale and place measuring probes one dead center and the other to the outside of the wire like capillary tube, contact metal, if the measure is in the 30 milivolt range you are fine.

If you do not have a voltmeter, then clean the end of the thermocouple with a fine nail emery board, clean the inside "screw in" port of the gas valve where the thermocouple screws in. Finish cleaning with alcohol and Q-tip.

Light the pilot once its set up again and hold the button 5 min, make sure the pilot flame heats the thermocouple midway to the end to a dull red color, if not able to do so adjust valve at pilot adjustment screw or unplug pilot orifice.

You may after 5 minuets pushing the button tap on the side of the gas valve body with the [b]plastic end of a screw driver [b]sharply but not heavy, if not operated in a while they stick...the tapping often frees it up.

Harry

Thanks Harry, Remove furnace took out old burner and cleaned furnace completly.
Full on rust and burner was full on spider nest and stuff. The heat exchanger had a large bees nest.
Hooked up to my garage heater hose and regulator and started it up. Thermocouple works and fuel control valve worked also. Works great, nice heater, radiant heat no electric required and quite. Can't askfor more.
Thank For your help.
