I have or have had the same problem you discribed and did check with leak detector and found a very small leakage of gas (LP) at the vent hole on the gas valve and only when the furnace is in operation. I have the same question basicly but want to know what the vent is for. It leaked after aorox 2 weeks after installation then stopped leaking so do not know what to do short of plugging the vent hole which is probably not recommended for sure.

Based on your description I would guess that there is a "leak" somewhere between the gas valve and the actual fire. Use soap bubbles to check the connections at the gas valve. Also check the gaskets in the Gas valve the same way. Lastly there may be a cracked or misaligned burner causing the "leak". Best of Luck!

Solid red typically means bad controller. Try unplugging the furnace, wait about 30 secs, then plug it back in. The possibility that the controller was sending voltage to the valve even when there was no flame is a bad sign. If the controller starts the furnace, watch it very closely and see what it does. If the solid light comes back on, it's time for a new board.

I had an old two wire system, red and white. gas


Check for a bad thermostat and wire by jumping the red and white wire together at the thermostat. If the unit fires, you have a bad thermostat. If it does not, jump the R and W terminals at the furnace (or where ever the thermostat wires are connected to). If the unit fires you have a bad wire. If it still does not fire, you have an issue with the heating system not the thermostat or its wires.

I'm considering installing a Goodman LP Gas Furnace:sizing? Ops?


Gerge, if you go to website www.energycodes.gov
you can do a heat load calc yourself. Basically, you figure out the sizes of walls, total area of glass. total doors to outside, ceiling area and types of building materials used. It is pretty easy and then you will know for sure. The contractor should be suppling you with one but if not use this, it is free!

I have a Goodman GMS9/GCS9 Gas-Fired Warm Air furnace and it's no


For anyone who finds this question in the future - It's the condensate drain hose for the heat exchanger.
Get a bucket and some towels handy and unplug the lowermost flexible rubber hose - if you do this right after the furnace has stopped, water will come gushing out. Mine was continually plugging up causing my furnace to stop, like yours - the L shaped plastic tube that dips into the drain trap on the outside of the unit (the thing filled with water) was too close to the bottom of the trap. I took it out, shortened it by 1/2 an inch (keep the same bevel that's on there!) and I haven't had a problem since. Blowing out the line would only hold things off for a few weeks before it started acting up again.
Cost me $90 for a service call the first time since visually it looks fine and I checked the upper hoses that go to the pressure switch :)
Learn from my service call!
