    A new one on me. Thanks for the info. Never knew what the inducer would run for a few seconds in cooling.
    Can someone please explain to me -
    Why is there never enough time to do it right the first time, but plenty of time to do it twice?

Sorry for the late reply, have been busy lately. Thank you everyone for your input.
    Okay. Part of the issue for us is that they are referring to the inducer as a blower. Apparently, that is how it slipped by.

    It is a blower when it is located at the flame end, and an inducer when it is at the flue end. But, it's their paper, so they can call it whatever they like.

    Thanks to the OP for the update!!!!!
