Amana Air Command 90 - Model GSC075A30A

We just replaced the inducer blower motor unit on above model. Then water kept getting trapped in the pressure switch tube, which the repair man came out and put the pressure switch up higher, everything was working well until this morning. You can hear the blower motor running, and the air going through, but he furnace wont kick on and run. What else could be going on?

    My problem is that the condesate pump is leaking and water is pooling up around the panel on/off control button and shuting off the power. Do I need a new conensate pump

Water should never reach the nipple for the pressure switch tubing on the IDM. Check the entire condensate drain system for obstructions. Verify water makes it from the furnace location to the outside drain. Flush p-traps and any anti-siphon devices thoroughly.

Amana 90 furnace won't ignite. Inducer fan runs for 30 seconds then shuts off and nothing happens. Try to turn fan on at thermostat and nothing happens. Ac works fine.


Most likely one of two issues is occurring. Either the inducer fan is not providing enough draft because it is either spinning too slowly or the impeller is damaged, or the pressure switch that the inducer motor air flow is supposed to activate is not operating properly. If the pressure switch fails to activate, the furnace will not open the gas valve and fire the ignition believing that there is not sufficient draft the vent the combustion gases.

did you check the hose from the inducer to the pressure switch? HAVE you unplugged the unit from the wall outlet to reset the board? DO you have a voltmeter? If you do you can run voltage across the switch and if you get 24 volts you are open.

A pressure switch that is not closing could be a inducer not performing too. Obtain a amp draw off your inducer motor it should read the same as the nameplate rating. If its not you could have a bad inducer motor. The problem I have recently seen is restricted venting we had rain part of the day sat and then snow and then 0f temps. This will block flue pipes and restrict airflow. If all that checks out ok then its probably the switch. is it really $269 well unless your a licensed hvac company we have to pay list price for everything try calling Johnstone Supply. Happy heating

check to see if the flame rod tip is in the flame(like the hot junction on a thermocouple). the pressure switches are a normally closed switch and a blocked flue could cause them to open. the circuit board should run through the safety switches and check them before the gas is opened at the valve. also the drain lines that you see at the inducer fan should be free of condensation but if the inducer fan has condensation in it, it will open the airflow safety switch. you will hear the crackling noise from the fan. also there should be a trap below the fan that should be full of water to keep the fan from pulling air from the wrong place. I would not suspect the board at this point

Induced Draft Blower Not Blowing- 3 Blinks on LED


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.

Weathermaker 8000 furnance flashing code 31 blower comes on for 90 sec .. then shuts off .. then other fan goes on.. don't see any flames or lighting goin on can you help?


31 PRESSURE SWITCH DID NOT CLOSE OR REOPENED - If open longer than five minutes,
inducer shuts off for 15 minutes before retry. Check for: - Excessive wind
- Proper vent sizing - Defective inducer motor
- Low inducer voltage (115VAC) - Defective pressure switch
- Inadequate combustion air supply - Disconnected or obstructed pressure tubing
- Low inlet gas pressure (if LGPS used) - Restricted vent
If it opens during blower on-delay period, blower will come on for the selected blower
off-delay.

Bryant furnance clicking, won't fire


try checking the pressure sensing switch,it has a tube that should run somewhere close to the inducer fan.sometimes this hose fills with liquids,and makes the units act funny.I don't know if you have a condensing unit or what.the furnace wont try to light if it cant tell the inducer motor is running.any induced draft unit will work this way.you can also do a temp. bypass of the pressure switch to make sure the contacts on it are closing just be sure your inducer fan is running,and you cant leave it like that its just a test.that is a safety feature you really need.

If there are markings on the pressure switch as to what pressure it closes at, you may be able to substitute another brand pressure switch. Amana is made by Goodman. Maybe you can cross reference the switch with a Goodman distributor. Try Amana parts at 1-407-699-5411.

Goodman 90% gas heater condensation build up


If the exhaust comes off the top of the furnace, you will need to make sure the condensation will drain all the way back to the condensate outlet found at the base of the inducer blower. If you are having to remove the tube from the pressure switch, there must be a blockage from the inducer down to where ever it drains to. Check to see if all tubes are free of blockages and if there is a condensate trap, clean it out. If the pressure tube you mentioned is facing up toward the blower allowing water to flow into it, reposition it so water will not enter the tube.
