    I have a Honeywell HRV in my house with an electronic 3 wire push button timer in the master bath. I ran a new wire to the main bath and went to buy another timer, only to be told that this timer is no longer available and there is no replacement?! So I said to myself "Self, just buy a different 3 wire electronic timer and install it". Well, it doesn't work. I will follow this post up with pics, but my question is, do any of you guys have an old HRV timer laying around the shop that you'd be willing to part with? Or, do you have any other suggestions? I thought about tearing out the control board and running it on paralleled mechanical timers and relays, but I'm not sure how I would make the defrost work. Thoughts? Pics to follow.

    This is the data plate on the HRV and the timer that works and is supposedly no longer available.

    Asshats at the Jmart supply house told me they called Honeywell because they couldn't find the control and we're told there was no replacement. I'll look into this.

    One time many moons ago I worked for a plumbing company that did HVAC/R, we were guaranteed 40 so when we were slow I would help out on plumbing calls that had nothing to do with shit

    One morning they got a call in from a little old lady that they had worked for for many years, she said steam was coming from he toilet, they asked me if I would run the call, I told them sure but they better get Ghostbusters on the line, just in case:lachen::lachen::lachen:

    So I get to the place and sure enough the toilet was steaming like a spa, she had a Monel water heater that was about 50 years old.They had solid copper tanks and would last forever, but no T&P valve, no ECO, so when the stat stuck it just kept cooking the water. Lucky she took a dump and opened the ballcock to relieve the pressure, actually lucky the steam didn't break the toilet
