    What's the main issue here? At first glance it appears like you don't know what a concentric vent kit is or how they work.

    Its all good ammoniadog for 3 reasons
    1) i probably should have stated that its not what it looks like
    2) because if i didnt know about concentric venting you would have learned me something
    And 3) ammoniadog is a badass name. LOL!!

    It does not look like a 2” tee to me, either. Does the furnace run at all with that venting.

    I have encountered concentric kits where the installer did not glue the inner 2” exhaust piece at installation. The furnace ran fine with the upper door off as I was testing it, but it shut down when I put the door on because it was recirculating the exhaust into the burner compartment.

    I’m going with all the others that it looks like a vent kit to me as well.

    Here is standard y

    So is there no 2” inside of the 3” then? Assuming the flue is on the left with the fernco fitting then it’s piped into the concentric wrong also.

    Correct. There is absolutely nothing inside of the piping. I got called there because the furnace wasn't working. Get there and take the cover off to look at safeties, flame sensor, etc. Find everything pretty normal. 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. Check airflow=seems good. On to check venting for debris from outside. Wait! Whats this? No inner piping? Just regular pvc all the way thru? Hmm

    Now I can say it. “Why is it always a Goodman?”

    not to mention this is a downflow in a closet at the back of the house with the door always closed and no filter
    Also the flex gas line runs through the cabinet all the way to the gas valve.

    Why would pulling the blower door off a sealed combustion change anything.
    Is it not a sealed combustion unit ?
