    Maybe you can help me understand it. Also it was when i pulled the top door with the burners,inducer motor, gas valve e.t.c.
    Im definitely open to ideas. All i know is when i left the door open it would run fine, door closed it wouldnt. Flue kit opened and no inner liner. This made me think the recycling of the co was somehow affecting it running correctly. Ideas?

    Unless that is the exterior wall?

    It`s better to be silent and thought the fool; than speak and remove all doubt.

    It’s not sealed combustion in the way that trane carrier and Lennox do it. Goodman burners are open to the entire half of the furnace. So there is not a sheet metal box enclosing the burners. The pipe just goes into the half of the furnace to give it its combustion air.

    So with the door off it is pulling air from the room. Door on pulling from pipe.

    I understand that but the blower compartment and the combustion are separated. He said pulling the blower allowed the unit to run.

    Not the blower door. The burner door. I clarified a few posts ago. Sorry for the confusion vtp99

    The installer probably didn't glue the inside pipe to the "wye" and it and the outside termination fell out. Someone that didn't know what they were dealing with tried to put it back together (outside) and when it didn't want to go back together right figured out if they took the 2" pipe off the "cap" fit back on just fine.

    Kind of hard to see down into one of those from outside, try a bore scope. If there is a hub for 2" to fit into from outside, put a new length of 2" and fix the situation.
    Use the biggest hammer you like, pounding a square peg into a round hole does not equal a proper fit.

    [QUOTE=kennybaker2014;25809115] Push in door switch and on it comes. Tape the switch closed and watch for a few minutes. Eventually i go to close door and it immediately goes out. I open it up and push switch and everything's fine again. Only when i close door is it not working. /QUOTE]

    The switch is on the blower section. Something is not adding up.

    Yes youre right. I said door as opposed to doorS. To be precise i removed doorS. Once doorS were removed i pushed furnace switch. When i saw it ran i put doorS back on. It went out once again. As i removed burner DOOR it came again and ran fine. When it ran fine i only had the burner DOOR off.

    It's sealed combustion with the door closed, when it's open it's just going to take the room air. So if the door is closed and the concentric vent is hooked up improperly, it's gonna be sucking the flue gasses instead of fresh air
