Question about Heating & Cooling
Since the motor is humming we know it is recieving voltage, try spinning the blower wheel by hand and see if the motor starts up, if it does the capacitor needs to be replaced, if not the blower motor needs to be replaced.

Rmove the two screws holding the blower in place and slide it out. With the power off, rotate the wheel and inspect for debris or an impingement. If everything turns easy, you have a bad motor or start capacitor. If you have rubbing, adjust the wheel. If the motor will not turn, replace it.

You need to type GOODMAN GAS APPLIANCES into you browser to find you local servicecenter. I must tell you that Goodman only sells to authorized service companies in my experience. So you become EgKraft Company.

You have a limit switch located in the furnace (a little bigger than a dime and located near the center of the front panel, sometimes the switch is mounted to a small fiberglass board) . There will be two wires going to it. They sometimes trip so often that they fail to automatically reset(due to dirty filters or undersized ductwork). You can SHUT OFF POWER TO THE FURNACE, then remove the two screws holding the switch in the furnace, pull the switch out of the furnace and tap on it and wipe it off.
The switch may work a few more times but should be replaced with the same size and type. You will see some rating printed on the switch somewhere. Write down all the numbers and get a replacemet from a furnace/AC supply house. If you have a meter and know how to use it you could check the switch for continuity.
Sometimes just a tap on the switch will get it going. There will also be a couple of rollout switches that could be tripped. They have little buttons on them to reset them. If they trip it may have other issues to be solved.
Hope this helps!

The problem you have is water in the exhaust pipe.
Check to see if the pipe has sagged anywhere or if there is a trap in the line.
If you hear gurgling then it is definetly water....
Some times can be hard to find, even a pipe 1/4 full will cause problems. They are very sensitive to flue problems.
Make sure that the flue pipe either runs back to the furnace or out to the outside, a continuos slope either way witha high spot in the middle.
Also check the bottom drain of the blower if it has one, have had them plug and trap water also..
I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!
Thanks for using Fixya!!

You can reset the controls by cycling the power off and then on again...
There also is a reset by the burner and one by the blower...push in the little red button in the center on the limit switch...
Here is a tip that will help you try to figure out why your furnace is not working.
