Hi Gary,
I can look up a model number for you but that looks like a serial number? If it is a model number, I didn't see any Williamson model numbers like it in my book.

Thanks for looking. Oh. Sorry. Yup, it's the serial.

Without a model number, I'm just guessing...but here goes...

Does it look like a 30 year old furnace? Standing pilot, natural draft, etc? Sometimes I look for the ansi date on the plate. If it is really old, I'd guess 1978. Got a picture?

Hi,

Anything with "oMatic" in it, I'm going to guess is late 40's to mid 60's. Did you open the air handler to see if there was a year date on the air handler? Lots of those old furnaces have the date stamped on the blower drum.

OT - OF!!!

Shit. I just remembered the owners manual. See it on the long shot?

Preston's Guide, which goes by model numbers, lists various Williamson 1114-07-* models from 1968 to 1981. I can't make out the last digit of the model # in your pic, which would narrow it down. The serial makes me think '78.

Your model number 1114-07-6 (Looks like a 6 or an 8 and there is no 8 in the Preston's Guide. So that model was manufactured in 78, 79, and 80. Serial number would confirm it is a 78 model. An old furnace, anyway you slice it.

The bearings are worn out in the squirrel cage blower. Take it out, bring it to an electric motor rebuild shop and have 'em install new bearings.

This is going to be familiar... I have an old Williamson Temp-o-matic also. Tonight we noticed that the blower was not coming on. I went down to see if the pilot was lit, it is. It seems to be clicking like when the ignition button is pressed on a grill, but it is already lit... We have turned the thermostat on and off, and could hear the gas valve turning on and off, but then "click, click, click, click" is all that I hear. What could this be? Could it be the safety valve? I don't know. Any help is appreciated.
