Question about Heating & Cooling
Switching to "fan" mode on the thermostat results in the same whining sound. Top of furnace starts up lights for a while and shuts down as I think it should with no air circulation. I get RF interference of the same pitch on some audio devices around the house - I could be imaging this one because it is not explosively loud and persists after I switch it off. The repair guys made it sound like removing the motor is really difficult but others say its two screws and it slides out. How does it come out? Also some say a bad motor spins freely. My fan turns by hand with a steady heavy dragging friction. Kind of figured a good motor would give a magnetic field feeling in the friction not a constant drag. Is the motor bad? I've heard that you can test the motor by powering it from the cover door shut off breaker but haven't tried that yet. Guess that would be my next step. Any advice would be appreciated.

sounds to me like i wish i could find out if this is new install or if the electric has been changed recently,,,sounds like reversed polarity on the plug,,,which means the white and black wires need to be swapped. If there has not been change recently than u need to see the other post i made on goodman about the combustion fan motors and there types and fixes. But almost certain that is reversed polarity. good luck

if your power vent moter is not running you should not have have glowing ignitor.Frist the vent moter must close an air prove switch in series with the idnitor .seems you have a stuck air prove switch.Its the one with a hose attached

sounds like you might have a bad control board. try putting a jumper wire on the control board low voltage terminals R and G your fan should come on and run if you have 120v power to fan motor. double check that you do have 120 leaving board and going to motor. if no 120 bad board if you do have 120 bad motor. if it is the board it likely has a bad blower relay which is common in amana models and goodman equipment.

Your doing well just right. When the call for heat is on the draft motor gets a call from the board to come on. When this happens if no voltage is present at the motor then you ahve abad baord. Replace it.
