Hi all, I have a very old Maytag Wall over (30+ yrs old) like. It has a slow leak at the safety valve. (At least I'm assuming, the leak was pinpointed to that area).

Unfortunately the safety valve is discontinued (7501P134-60). Would I be able to to purchase a different safety valve, say 7501P133-60 and the corresponding ignitor without issue?

I don't know about "without issue". I would think the valve would likely function. I'm not certain if they'd have the same gas orifice and you'd have to make sure they were both set for the same gas, Natural or LP. The valves however would usually mount differently.

There are companies that can repair some discontinued gas valves. You might try contacting them first before jury-rigging something different in place.
