Furnace won't work because of a loose Inducer Motor Connector
The 3 circuit inducer motor connector is kind of loose. I have had some luck getting the furnace to fire by wiggling the connection, but now it seems to not be working. Is it okay for me to remove the control panel, to see if something is broken on the other side? What do you advise...it's a little cold out!! It is a Carrier Weathermaker 8000 model 58WAV091-14

Direct Factory Replacement Inducer Blower Motor Used in 90% Furnaces. ... Comfortmaker, Intercity Products Snyder-General, Heil, Tempstar, Arcoaire Draft Inducer Blower Motor. ... Used in ICP Equipment Models: ... GUH125A016CIN
Usually when the Vent or Inducer motor runs all the time
The pressure switch is usually bad
The furnace board is seeing that the pressure switch is open, so it brings the vent blower on to close the pressure switch but the switch being bad won’t close so the furnace board will keep the inducer motor running continuously.
Could be several causes.
1. Blockage on piping
2. Water in inducer housing slowing down inducer impeller
3. Condensate trap for furnace clogged up.
4. Inducer motor going bad.
5. Leak in vacuum hoses or not connected. Welcome To the Best HVAC
power to gas valve ok .. Replace gas valve after checking gas valve coil for continuity/resistance... with valve removed ...and power to valve ... try blowing thru valve from supply side ... stuck valve.... replace...
Are your air filters relatively new? Is a bird nesting in your units combustion air exhaust pipe? Does your draft inducer motor run before and after the gas has ignited? Check and confirm these 3 things first. Good Luck!
I would first try to power up the inducer motor by itself. If this works without any issue than the next step is to look at the circuit board. You will need a multimeter. Set it to 120V AC and test the leads on the circuit board that the inducer motor attach to. Turn the system on and see if you get a reading on the meter, if so, then you know the motor is getting power. I would then check the legend of your furnace with the led pattern. You mention it is steady, look up what the steady light means. It may point to a control board error, in that case you will need to replace the board.
Hi, If the inducer fan is out of balance that badly, then you will need to replace the inducer anyway....it will shake its self apart.... Me I would have fixed the wire and then ordered a new inducer right a way and then installed it in a few days when it arrived...in is trouble waiting to happen... Put the wire back on and get a new inducer coming...
Here is a tip that wrote about how to

what brand furnace is it? is there any blinking light on the control board? is the tube going to the pressure switch blocked? there should be a tube going from the pressureswitch to the inducer motor housing take it loose from the inducer and check for obstruction there,dont blow back into the switch.
Check to see if theres power getting to the inducer motor, also check for loose or damaged wiring. If theres power the motor is bad. If not check the air flow switch, usually a disk shape with a silicone hose attached and two wires... take the hose from the furnace and blow into it and test to see if theres continuity, this switch is normally open and when you blow the switch closes. This is to make sure that the main blower is running so the combustion chamber doesnt burn up (and your house). Make sure your air filter is clean! If the switch is operational it could be the relay that controls the inducer motor, on newer models the relay is on the control board, check for error codes... try these things and if that doesnt work call your local furnace repairman!
