    What's wrong here?

    Went to do a pm on this system. Found the flue disconnected from the inducer (this picture is after I connected it) causing CO to spill in the attic, as well as H20 all over the electrical compenents. Does anyone else see what else the problem is?

    that pressure switch hose to the collector box should be attached to the lower fitting so that if the drain plugs the furnace will shut down.

    It is on the list. my company is awesome to work for, however, they do not provide ANY tools. Sucks.

    So, Inducer condensate lines are plumbed wrong( path of least resistance), Flue pipe disconnected. I moved the flue pipe and water came pouring out and spilled into the gas valve. Ended up shorting gout the gas valve and the pressure switch all because the stupid flue pipe wasn't clamped to the inducer.

    That's what I was wondering. There should be a 90 with a drain at the bottom of the fitting...

    Pressure switch tubing should've moved to the bottom. The whole secondary would need to fill with water before the switch opens.

    usually, on a left side down, you leave the fitting in place and come out the top. You drain off the side of the 90, instead of the bottom. The side port has a curled lip, to catch condensate flowing down the flue, while the bottom port collects from your secondary.

    Find that 90!

    Agreed about the PS.
