Question about Goodman GMS90703BXA Heater

1 Answer

Condensation not draining properly and causing rust in cabinet.

Unit is actually an Amana 90. It looks just like the Goodman Furnace.
Condensation is leaking out of the bottom of the black plastic cover where the ventor motor is mounted. Are the cover bolts loose?
It is just a slight trickle of water, but it collects and causes rusting of the metal panels.
Is there a “proper’ fix for this? Is the furnace not level?

Probably a bad gasket between the inducer housing and the secondary heat exchanger. They may be available from a goodman dealer.

Why is water coming out of my furnace exhaust pipe?


When natural gas or propane burns, water vapor is given off within the flu gasses so a bit of condensation in, off and around the flu discharge is quite normal. If it is a high efficiency furnace with the pvc flu pipe, they must be pitched properly BACK TO the furnace so the moisture will drain backwards and out a drain tap at the bottom of the riser. That style of furnace will have TWO drains...one up high for the air conditioner coil and one about 16" up from the bottom of the furnace off of the 'condensing coil' that the flue gasses pass through to extract a much greater amount of heat from the burned gas.

Many flu pipes are installed incorrectly which causes water to drip outside instead of back to the furnace and this usually results in huge icicles hanging off of them in the winter and eventually the partial blockage causes the flu's pressure switch to open.

If you have regular galvanized flu pipe, you have less than a 90% high efficiency furnace and the resultant flu gas temperature is much higher with a much greater quantity of water vapor in it. A little condensation is somewhat normal on the top of the flu cap as the hot moisture laden vapor comes in contact with the cold and dry outside air. If the moisture is all over the galvanized flu pipe in the basement, you are possibly venting into an oversized and unlined masonry chimney. IF that's the case, the chimney should really be lined with a flexible liner and properly connected to the furnace and water heater (if gas fired) with the proper connections and configuration.

Why would my goodman gas furnace leak water from the panel that the blower motor is attached to?


the only reason water would come out of your furnace is if you also have your AC in the same system, and the condensation line is not allowing the water to drain properly.

If the water only happens during cooling, clear the condensation line. If it is happening during a heating cycle you may have an improperly connected thermostat, a bad control board, etc...

Hi, I have an Amana 90 Air Command Gas Furnace that is dripping water. The unit has a Becket Corp condensate removal pump on the side that is working properly (I tested this by pouring water into one of...


The source of your problem may be the drain pan that captures the condensation and then drains it into the condensate pump hose.

Yes you'll have to remove the side panel to access the pan. The pan drain may be clogged with lint and mold. It's not difficult to clean once you access it. If you see mold, you may want to place a teaspoon of bleach in the drain pan once it has been cleaned. Future condensation water will dilute it and move it around.

Condensation building up in lower compartment of goodman 45btuh furnace in counterflow position 95%a.f.u.


Make sure all drains and hoses are connected to the lowest positions and that they are free of any blockage or debris. If there is not a vent or stand pipe on the drain line as it exits the furnace cabinet, put one in. A stand pipe is a Tee with a vertical pipe going up approximately 5" and allows the water to drain easily by breaking the vacuum normally experienced by the inducer blower.

The inducer fills with water and passes into the pressure switch


This unit is designed to condense, I suspect that the drain is blocked by some debris. Remove the larger hoses from the burner box and inducer motor and blow into them to clear any debris. Plug the end of the hose so you don't force water into either the inducer or burner box. Make sure that there is a vent on the drain just as it leaves the furnace cabinet. This will assist the drain to work properly and not cause the condensation to go up in the pressure switch hose.

There is water leaking from the bottom of the new gas furnace. This happend last year and they said a hose was plugged. It is happening again this year and they are saying now it is because we didn't have...


No. The installers did not properly plumb you hose. You have a high efficient furnace which is really nice. However, this furnace takes out moister from the air when heating, causing condensation. I would look at the installation manual and see if they installed them properly. They might of installed the wrong unit for you home. Most Goodman furnaces can only be installed up-flow meaning in the closet or horizontal installed meaning in the attic. Look at the installation manual to see if they installed the right unit for your home. www.fastacservice.com

Water leaking out bottom of Goodman propanefurnace drain tubes are clear. draining out under the actual furnace


Check the top of the gas flue. Make sure the cap is on it. If not it will allow rain to get inside. If this is only a furnace, this is the only thing it could be. Nothing produces water in a furnace. If it has an A/C coil attached. The condensation drain might be stopped up allowing it to leak.

Goodman furnace may be producing to much water


Your furnace is more than 90% efficient and extracting so much heat from the gas that it condenses instead of blowing out steam. This is good! Figure that for every dollar you spend on fuel, you are getting back 90+ cents back in heat. Compare that to the typical units that only get 70 - 80 cents back in heat.

Yes you should drain your condensate to a proper drain via gravity or a condensation pump. I would recommend you treat the condensate first with a acid neutralizer prior to draining in municipal drains due to it's high content of sulfuric acid. You can purchase these filter type neutralizers on the net or at a good heating wholesaler.
