    Those lennox pans get crapped up more than any other I've seen.

    It's terrible, this is the second time I've had to do this on this unit. I have to go back with some way to get that junk out. Any good ideas?

    i use a garden hose with a 45* angle on the nozzle and take the trap off. just dont flood everything. but you can sweep all the gunk out that way. i started doing this on a unit that had a curb that was unlevel. no problem since

    I think water is about a mile away lol. The pan is not in good reach either. I think flushing would be the best, the ceiling below is ruined already so I guess what's the difference lol.

    York's are any bargain either.
    Can someone please explain to me -
    Why is there never enough time to do it right the first time, but plenty of time to do it twice?
