There is a trick to using this controllerNov 02, 2009
By David Fiddes
My furnace was turning the main burners of and on continuously. In my effort to debug the problem I suspected the controller. This new one is an upgrade to my old controller because it has diagnostic lights to let you know if there is a problem. Here is the trick. If I followed the wiring diagram as suggested in the manual, the controller did not work at all. I went on line and found someone who had the same problem. Instead of connecting the 24 volt line to the 24volt tab, it needed to be connected to the TH-W tab. The manual does not specify this, so only try this trick if it doesn't work for you right out of the box. It has now been operating for the last two months without issues. I expect it to work for the next several years.

Good Replacement Unit, added some more life to an Old FurnaceFeb 05, 2011
By M. Kohlman
(This Unit was Purchased to replace a Honeywell S8600H1006 Control Model in a Williamson Propane Furnace and the review should be based on that Information)
Several weeks ago our Furnace (a Frankenstein Williamson Propane Furnace with a Coleman A/C Retrofit) began experiencing a number of start-up issues where the pilot light would light followed by the burner igniting and shutting off shortly after, or a short-cycle (where the furnace would operate for a few minutes, shut off, then try again after 10 minutes or so) or go through a warm-up cycle followed by a shut-off when the blower came on. Killing Power to the system for about 30-60 minutes would usually make things behave for a few days before the problems would arise again.
Since our current plan is to go to a new Geothermal System in the next 20 months or so I wanted the keep the repair low-cost if possible and given the age and set up of the current system I knew the likelihood of finding an exact part-replacement was not likely so I was pleasantly surprised to see this unit and the positive feedback; I ordered this along with a Q345A1313 Honeywell Pilot Burner. While I did not believe the Pilot Burner/Sensor was the source of the problem, I also did not want to have the Furnace partially disassembled and find out it too needed to be replaced. The S8600U3009 shipped promptly from Patriot Supply and I had it in my Mailbox within in 5 business days from day-of-order.
One thing I want to emphasize here for anyone reading this. YOU ARE MESSING AROUND WITH A MACHINE THAT MANAGES A HIGHLY COMBUSTABLE GAS. IF YOU ARE EVEN IN THE SLIGHTEST WAY AMBIVALENT OR UNSKILLED IN PERFORMING THIS KIND OF WORK HIRE A PROFESSIONAL WHO KNOWS THAT THE H#@! THEY ARE DOING. SAVING THE $$$ ON THE INSTALLATION IS NOT WORTH YOU OR YOUR FAMILY'S LIFE.
OK, with that warning aside; installation was a smooth one, with theS8610U3009 being a physically-exact-drop-in replacement for the S8600H1006. All that was needed was to remove the mounting bracket that the old control unit was on, remove the control unit from the bracket, and then reversed the procedure with the new unit.
The one issue that I ran into is same one that many reviewers seem to be running into, which is the input wiring connections of the new vs. the old Honewell units. With the Old Unit there was 3 24V connections: one was an output connection which was an obvious translation from the old unit, but the other two are more vaguely marked 24V(1) and 24V(2). The newer unit has a 24V-GND, a 24V, and a TH-W, with no clear documentation on how those should be translated. Like others, going with the obvious choices (which to me at least would be hooking up the 24V(1) and 24V(2) to the 24V-GND and the 24V connections) proved fruitless. Eventually it took spending a little bit of time going over the schematics of the old S8600H unit vs. the newer S8610U unit to figure out that the working setup was to connect the old 24V(2) line to the 24V-GND and the 24V(1) line to the TH-W connections. At this point the status-LED indicator came on and the unit attempted to cycle (which was not yet successful as the Gas was still shut off). This seems to be such a common issue, even with direct Honeywell -> Honeywell upgrades that it would be nice if this was mentioned in their generally well-written conversion charts and documentation.
Once that all looked good, I shut off power, turned on the gas, and did a leak test on all the gas joints that may have been disturbed during the process. (I usually do a detector leak test - a good DIY detector is the General Tools NGD100 Natural Gas Detector which can also be found via Amazon - followed by a bubble test if the Detector produces any kind of positive result). With no detected Gas leaks after having the Gas repressurized for about 10 minutes, the Furnace was turned back on and run through a full cycle.
Everything works great and the furnace has now run through about 30 cycles in the last 48 hours with no issues. I did not have to use the Pilot Igniter/Sensor Kit but have put it aside in case I need it in the future. In any case it was worth the few extra bucks to have it on-hand during the repair process.
For the advanced DIY person, I would recommend this as a very inexpensive and viable alternative to a new furnace. The only reason I did not give 5 Stars was because of what seems to be a common wiring translation issue with the 24V connections is not well documented by Honewell, even for upgrades on their own units. If they had done that this would be considered a perfect repair experience.

Perfect FitJan 30, 2011
By Randall S. Strine
This was a perfect replacement for my Honeywell S86E. Very impressive extra parts and adapters included in the box. I paid attention to other reviews and timing settings for its replacement. Out of the box it had all of the correct settings in place. I just turned off the power, switched out the wires one by one, turned the furnace back on and wonderful heat again. I have had it 3 months now and it works perfectly. I saved a lot of money doing this myself. You can do it!

Works GreatMay 06, 2010
By Gary M. Bucknum
The furnace would only light the pilot and not the main burner. The part was shipped within a couple of hours of ordering it. I had the same problem as an earlier review "Instead of connecting the 24 volt line to the 24volt tab, it needed to be connected to the TH-W tab". I tried that and it works perfect.
Works great!Apr 28, 2013
I swapped out the old unit with the new in minutes and it works great! I saved myself allot of money by not haveing to hire a contractor.
