Inducer motor fills with water
Hi there. Our new Goodman furnace frequently does not start up. Removed name of company and owner installed our furnace and assured us that he had installed it correctly. They later installed a drain on the exhaust pipe to help to drain the furnace, but that didn't help either. Can anyone here that is familiar with goodman comment on their "fix" for the flooding inducer motor?
Below is a photo of the installation:

Reason: See above
I don't think it is right for you to post a technician or company name on this site. Especially if you are asking us to double check his work. I hope that no one on here is willing to comment on that photo as I feel you are headhunting here and i wont be a part of it.
The drain system is not installed properly. Hire someone that knows how to read an install manual and copy what the pictures show to properly install your furnace.

Might want to get someone to address your pop off drain on your water heater

Mustard man - get over yourself. What do you expect him to do? We slam hacks everyday on WOS. It is NOT correct and needs to be fixed before a rusted out HX is in the picture. I'd never install like that.

i can't rule out internet sales as the source of this equipt. a stupid fix on a stupid mistake looks like diy to me.

I bet it fills up!! Get some one to fix asap.Very simple

Mustardman- I agree that names should not be used but isnt safety more important. I can see that unsupported vinyl tubing falling out sooner than later.
Tell the repairman- if needed- to check book on the "drain elbow" and dont forget to install 3" coupling where the drain tube is cut in
Im with Mustardman and can care less at what balistics opinion is ....... get over yourself.
This sight is not here to be naming companies with no proof of of wether it is fact or fiction. You want everyone in here naming their competition as a hack , wether they are or not ????????
Thats fine if you want a DYI to ask if its a hack job........ but naming companies ?????????
I think someone is droping the ball as far as monitoring this post, Naming companies with no proof ??????
Someone .....do your job
Oh and Balistic , you can ignore my opinion if ya want.
Dec thank you. I think you said it a lot better than i did. if you want to post pics and ask questions about an install fine I will help with that. but posting names and companies is crossing the line

No, I am not going to ignore your opinion. In hindsight, i can see your point. I was angry about that post and the safty hazard it poses to the H/O and as such reacted.
But, I see your point and will offer my apoligies at this point to Mustardman. I reacted unjustly.
Guys, this thread is old. When you see someone name a company or person, please report the post.
inducer motor w/water
Ihad the same exact prob last winter. No heat 'cause the motor coulden't get up to speed 'cause of the drag of the water. my problem was the furnace was multi-poise and the inducer housung had to be rotated 45 degrees to put the inducer cond. drain on the bottom . Solved my prob. in 15 mins. and the poor ho had no heat in that upstairs furnace 'cause the side jobber only installed the furnace , turned it on & walked away & never came back. Made a customer for life & got to come back & do a proper startup a few days later. Good luck with yours........Jack
