Has anyone replaced the heater control valve on their 2002? I can pull it out and compare but I would prefer to have one on hand when I get ready to replace.

I replaced my heater control valve on a 2001. Doubtless they are the same; made by ACME Air conditioning, in Kansas City. Their website is acmeair.com, and if you go to replacement parts you'll find the heater control valve right at the top of the the catalog.

But before you do that, let me describe the symptoms I had, which caused me to do exactly what you intend! My valve didn't shut off, so the vent delivered hot air in the summer. When I had ordered the replacement and removed the old valve, I discovered that the screws holding the servo (it's electrical) to the valve body had backed off, allowing the servo-to-valve connection to partially separate. What was really needed was longer screws (it has to do with the bracket that WRV used), not a new valve.

So -- I have an old valve and servo someplace that are still serviceable. If you'd rather avoid paying about $125 for part plus shipping, let me know --

Frank, thanks a lot for the information! http://acmeair.com/parts1.htm (one on the top left looks like the right one) My problem is a bit different, valve shows signs of leaking. Cleaned everything off today and dismounted the flow valve from the servo so I can find out where the small coolant leak is coming from.
Replacing some hoses and clamps hopefully will take care of the problem.
To answer 'Lindberg's question, heater control valve is the flow valve located above the gen set that regulates the heater output.
