Dating a Sears furnace

Does anyone know how to translate a Sears furnace serial # to find out a date of manufacture?

As I understand it, Sears furnaces are not always built by the same manufacturer. The one I am interested in has a serial # H 93050209 and a manufacturer # 605418.

Thanks in advance.

I'm curious to know how you came up with 1998?

Kelvinator is made by Nordyne. That'd make your unit from July of '03.

The serial numbers run, G6AYYMM

KEnmore Furnace Model 867.769224

Serial Number: H611 39071

This one really has me stumped. It's a 90% efficient according to the panel. It's really a mid efficiency unit since the combustion air is drawn from the inside of the home and is exhausted out via a PVC duct. I'm just trying to get an age of it since the seller of the property claims it's new.

Thanks!

Here's the clue... H is the month of manufacture. The next two digits is the year of manufacture.

Hang out with a bunch of whack jobs dating furnaces and claiming "my furnace is hotter than your furnace"!

What will y'all be dating next???

Probably water heaters!

Did that last year. Now I am going out with freezers. They are so cold.[:-paperba[;)]
