thanks to my daughters, in what was a rare feet of self motivation. They decided that the gas valve (took it to work to put in the parts wsher) for my "baby" wasn't safe on my desk and they put it away for me. It is now in one of those very safe places that nobody can find. I very politely tried to explain to my girls how upset I was about the part, but since I didn't yell and scream they didn't get the picture. I did call Sigarms; the rep (whose name I forgot to write down), explained that they didn't sell that part. He did however get my contact info and if they had them available they would get one right to me. So now I am in limbo, with a very nice, very intimidating paperweight. Someone here please feel sorry for me!!!
