    Hope You Don't Need A Blower Motor

    Typical new construction install from about 10-12 years ago...GMP rotbox jammed upside down in a closet corner. Note the 6" bypass pipe mushed into the corner with it. Unbelievably, no missing crimp rings and just a dirty flame sensor. Oh well, next time...

    You won't believe how many of those I have seen in apartment complexes. We actually had to remove the furnace to get the heat exchanger out.

    The duct system must be decent and they must really keep the filter clean for a GMP in a downflow position to not have had overheating issues. Otherwise, about par for the course for apartment installs.

    Just a little FYI; if the blower ever sticks or even if the electrical is shut off while that furnace is in the heating mode, you will need to reset an overtemperature reset located on the far back end of the blower housing. You can't see the sucker, but it will keep the furnace from running.

    Been there, done that. Have serviced hundreds of GiMPS in my time.

    Could the customer find a longer filter? Or is that a turn it around and double your fun one?
