needed Siemens LOGO 230rc controller

That little logic controller on the inside of the control panel went out when we went to turn the furnace back on after the rebuild. Apparently they are no longer made? That is what Iíve been told. I have found several online but getting one will take several week as far as I can find. Does anyone have one of these on the self I could I buy and get pretty quick? Thanks

I would bypass it and never think about it again.

Seconding Jordan's reply. Different models of temperature controllers are all pretty much interchangeable. Take this opportunity to get yourself a cheaper, more modern, and more easily replaceable controller.

If that poses a technical hurdle, just ping here on the thread and I'll give a more detailed and useful step-by-step "how to replace a temp controller" reply

I had that logic controller in my moly when steve turned it over to me. In General, I found the Watlow controllers to be sufficiently unreliable that I simple didn't use their programming. It seems to me that the logic unit was being used in a Hi/Lo feature involving the power level coming off the transformer. All that Watlow stuff failed eventually and the main controller was simply taken off the market.

I tend to agree with Eric and Jordan. When Charlie Correll and I built a few Moly's, Charlie used Partlows and I didn't like them either.
