View Full Version : goodman inducer problem
07-03-2006, 01:54 PM
I have a goodman 80% I installed in a damp crawl space (due to a natural spring in the crawl space). In the winter season, every month and a half the barbed fitting for the pressure switch hose on the inducer gets plugged from sediment left from moisture in barbed fitting, and this shuts the furnace down. I have contacted goodman and their only solution was to drill out the barbed fitting 2x larger, but that has not fixed my problem, any other ideas for a solution to this problem would be appreciated.

If that fitting is plugging up, then I can just imagine what the inside of the heat exchanger and the collector look like. You should have a technician thoroughly inspect your furnace AND the venting system to make sure it's not rotted out or damaged.
You may also want to consider switching to a sealed combustion furnace that does not draw it's air for burning from the crawlspace. That may also eliminate the problem you're experiencing.

I am a hvac service tech. I installed the furnace 1 year ago, I have checked the collector box and exchanger and all is good. I've seen this problem many times, but I've never had a unit that plugs so fast and so often.
Thanks for your reply

goodman passed along the seame info to us.if there is enough metal left try 1 or 2 drill sizes larger.
