Description for Field Controls GVD-7PL

The Field Vent Damper works automatically to allow natural draft during appliance operation while preventing residual appliance heat and conditioned air from escaping during off cycles. It also prevents the infiltration of cold air during down drafts.

Safety Features

  • Dual safety switches allow the burner to fire only when the damper is in the open position. This unit will not interfere with existing appliance safety controls, when properly installed.
Operational Features
  • Operates with all 24 VAC, 60hz intermittent ignition and standing pilot ignition systems.
  • Stainless steel construction provides superior corrosion resistance.
  • Damper operation: power opens in 15 seconds, power closes in 15 seconds. Power is off at damper motor when it is at rest.
  • Hold open switch allows damper to be placed in an open position and taken out of service to assist with trouble shooting appliance problems.
  • Keyed wiring harness connector plug installs only one way, preventing incorrect wiring connection.
Dimensions
  • Pipe Size: 7"
  • Length: 7-1/16"
  • Height: 11-7/8"
  • Clearance: 1-7/16"
  • Exposed Pipe: 5-13/16"
How the GVD Works
  • The Field Vent Damper is installed in the vent pipe, after the draft hood, or barometric. During off cycles, it remains closed, preventing air flow through the vent. When there is a call for heat, the motor is energized, rotating the damper 90 degrees to an open position. Opening and closing takes approximately 15 seconds. When the damper is fully open, the burner is allowed to fire and flue gases pass freely through the vent. When the thermostat is satisfied, the burner stops, and the damper automatically closes. For service and trouble shooting, the damper can be locked in the open position.
Electrical Specifications
  • Minimum wiring requirements: 24 VAC - 18 gauge - 105 degrees C
  • Power requirements: 3 watts at 24 VAC, 60 Hz, when opening or closing

This unit fit right in place of the obsolete 6" Honeywell AVD. No adjustments were required. The plastic quick connect on the existing Honeywell cord snapped right into the Field Controls 6" GVD. No terminations were necessary. The unit has been functioning fine for a month now.

Overall the damper seems good, looks nice. I'm a little concerned about the motor being under powered. Seems just barely able to move the damper... also seems a bit jerky. Hopefully it will last long term. I'm not overwhelmed with confidence. Time will tell so I'll reserve judgment.

Comments about 5" Automatic GVD Vent Damper:

I replaced my ancient Johnson M15AC-1 that would periodically not trip the open switch with the Fields and the install took me less than an hour. The existing harness was a fit as promised. I am sure I saved hundreds over paying a HVAC company.

  • 6" Automatic GVD Vent Damper, without harness

    Q:

    I am changing my boiler from standing pilot to intermttent ignition with the honeywell kit,and I have controller number S8610U. It has the place to plug the damper onto the controller. Does the damper come with the 4 wire harness and plug to complete the instalation or do I have to order a seperate harness. I see that you also sell this damper less harness. Just tell me what I need Thanks--- Bill

    Q:

    I have a New Yorker, FR-147 oil fired boiler that I recently converted to gas fired. I installed a Midco EC-200 gas burner. I would like to use a GVD-7 vent damper. I have a Honeywell L8124-A aquastat. Is the GVD-7 compatible with my aquastat and Midco burner? If it is compatible, how should it be wired?

      A:

      I installed this on a natural gas boiler so it would fit on a furnace. The one issue is that the boiler had a control which activates the damper when it is on so you would need that as well.
