    And the poor placement award goes to Heil.

    I had to remove the blower assembly to check this safety. I didn't get as many pictures as I should have but this was the least serviceable furnace I have worked on lately. The fan control and ignition control and most of the wires were crammed in front of everything that I needed to get to to check safeties and such.

    You couldn't check the safeties at the wires from a more accessible spot?
    I do a triple evac with nitro to remove non condensables.

    I checked from the board but then I needed to narrow it down to one and that was the easiest one to get too because I only had to remove the blower.

    Goodman gets my vote , put in an downflow 80% the other day and blew the low voltage fuse ( rookie mistake I know).

    It took half an hour to disassemble everything and pry the inner door loose due to factory siliconed it all the way around.

    F____k goodman , never again

    I probably never seen one because downflow is extremely uncommon here.

    Yeah, those are absolute bovine fecal droppings. I should be ashamed to say this, but I can count on one hand how many of those Ive checked the blower cap on PMs. Its bad enough having to adjust blower speed on startup.

    Those things suck on a good day. Ive had one which will always be remembered: someone installed all manual resets in one of those. I dont know who or why but it was bad.

    That's funny.
    Worst thing is the safety reset and I never figured out which one it was. I am pretty sure it was over temp lockout when I got there but they had just replaced the filter so it was back to normal after I reset it. I haven't got a callback yet.
