Ned, shoot me an email if you want, I'll give you a number you can text if you have a quick question.
Is the problem furnace a down flow by chance?
When you get 15 posts apply for pro status. The good info is over in the closed forums, you're just getting a small morsel of what these guys know. Get over there ASAP and they'll set you down to a feast if you're willing to listen.
That was 383 days on the wagon out the window ,, That chilled patron.
Sorry for killing thread should of been PUB
I think my concern was that by goggling peoples profile info U can find out who they are. You definitely are right ,, But people read this and it could be slander for your company . Don't give the prick any ammo. (BED R???)
No this Armstrong is a up flow...
I have said nothing that I would not have issue with anyone in my world knowing. I am very careful what I say as I have gotten myself into trouble before for what I have posted on places. My daddy always taught me that never say anything about someone out loud that you would not them to hear. I just get very frustrated with not knowing things and have no one to turn to for help.
We have not heard anything regarding the furnace in this post as of yet. Not sure if that means anything as it would sometimes go a week or so before the furnace would quit. So we will see over the next several days what happens.
Pull that pressure switch. The new Costa Rican switches that the Lennox family is using from honeywell are garbage. It's possible that the new one you install is garbage as well.
Since the furnace is under warranty you don't have much choice here.
Either the switch is leaking air, or it gets full of condensation.
We go through handfuls of those every week, it's more or less trial and error til you find one that works.
Get back on that wagon, my friend.
after 3 multiple repeat calls these last couple of weeks, all of which I was 1 of multiple techs there, I had the pleasure of going back to them with my guru install forman. these were all repeat pressure switch problems and had either had the p/s changed or that and other parts too ( one had the t-stat,p/s,board and ventor)
all 3 checked out fine for everything....except when we checked the front to back slope. they all were slightly sloped backward. none were new installs.. all drained what I would call a decent amount of condensate out once resloped slightly forward.
gave me something to consider....maybe break out the torpedo level my friend.
I am new to this trade too and consider this forum to be second to none. good luck!

check for actual resistance on the pressure switch, not just continuity. had issue with yorks about this. on some york furnace, high resistance roll out switch will throw pressure switch code. check actual resistance on each safeties. furnace may need drain tee with a trap on flue side. if it double scoop design like york it could actually throw water into pressure switch. make sure the line is not saggy, but loop on top of the p/s.
P/S don't go bad right away ( they could). if it's new install I highly doubt that venting pressure could be an issue. it could be bad venting also, or depending on how the wind blow at that time. installa tee on termination to block direct wind pressure to furnace.
you guys in sask has AC season??? I was there for christmas and it was -32 for 3 days!!!!
Never even thought to put a level on the furnace and check to see it the furnace had a slight grade forward. I got the boss to contact the home owner on Friday to check the status of the furnace. Thus far there has been no further issues....touch wood. I would like to pour a rum but this furnace has really kicked the crap out of me. Every time I thought we were good, we we get the call. I do have to go out there on a unrelated matter and will put a level on the furnace and check the slope.
A/C season in Sask. is for the most part short. But speaking from my own experience without a/c I would be divorced. I get very cranky in the heat. Our house build brand new 3 years ago will reach 26 - 28 degrees C on just a warmish day...not a good scene.
Blitz...you were lucky....you can when it was warm. We were -44 C with the wind this morning. It is currently -41 C.... I need to move maybe.
