One tip is to inspect very carefully the actual barb connectors that the rubber hoses connect to on the pressure switches. They can become slightly restricted with oxidation or other particulate rendering them ineffective. HOWEVER, your comment that the flame "rolls out" has me concerned. Flame roll out is usually caused by a flu blockage. Many times, if the flue is not covered with a screen, small birds roost in them and hunker back farther and farther for warmth then die from carbon monoxide. If they die at or close to a fitting, they can fall down to the first elbow or 45 and create just enough blockage to effect the pressure switch, but not enough blockage for you to determine without cutting off the flu pipe and physically inspecting.

Another thing that causes flame roll out is a plugged p-trap in the condensing coil drain at the bottom of the blower assembly. It could cause flooding of the condensing coil which cause restriction of air flow through the system, resulting in tripping out on pressure switch.

You may have to cut the flu off in two places depending on how sophiticated you flue is. Usually its not too bad but you'll need pvc glue and primer and a couple pvc couplings to reinstall it. DO NOT operate the furnace with the flu disconnected.

If you find this as the cause, you may want to install a screen over the flu opening but use 1/4" mesh as too fine of screen (screen door) will create too much restriction and also effect the sensitive pressure switches.

OK, if the furnace is not lighting for even a few seconds, you have either a bad gas valve, bad wire, bad control module or no gas. The pressure switch is not the issue. Check all wires to the gas valve and look for 24 volts across them when the ignitor glows and you hear the click. Then test for 24 volts to ground. It could be a bad ground wire.

Replace pressure switch. If you blow any air into the pressure switch it has been damaged,check air ports for debris by looking never ,never blow on air switch they work on a very small pressure or vaccum,where your breath is to much pressure and also loaded with unwanted humidity.

SOURCE: Good morninng, My Goodman furnace inducer

Replacing the board, flame sensor, and pressure switch, and cleaning out the induction motor was definitely a good start. Other things to check would be a blocked or restricted flue pipe, I have ran into a few bird nest before!, and you also want to check or replace the hose that runs from the inducer to the pressure switch if you haven't already. To be honest, most of the time I clear out the nipple on the inducer where the hose goes with a small piece of wire and it works. The last thing I would suggest is making sure the new pressure switch is rated for what you need. Alot of the revisions on furnaces actually call for less than the original pressure just for this problem. Hope this helps and good luck!

Brand New Ducane Furnace with Multiple Error Codes


Check your drain line. It appears that water is not draining and backing up into the furnace. Is there a drain trap? If not or if there is no vent on the drain line there can be a vacuum created when the furnace is running and it actually pulls water back into the furnace and when the inducer shuts off it releases the vacuum allowing the water to drain.

You may very well be right because if the induced draft motor won't come on then the heatin cycle stops there. It makes me wonder about the board because of it doing the same thing even if it's not calling for heat. Thanks.

Ducane high efficiency propane furnace, pressure switch problem


A short cycle heat cycle indicat a pressure switch replacement was needed. This did not fix the problem. the problem was in PCV line since the end was filled with slugs and cause the line to backup with water. When this happen the system would stop asking for gas. the water would leak out and it would restart. The problem was fixed by cleaning value at end of PCV. This released the water, two quart of water, that was back up causing problem. Curious if a filter change indicator was providing a clue that was missed?

Janitrol/Goodman GMP075-3 Draft Inducer Fan Won't come on


most forced draft fans are powered by 120 volts . close to the fan is usually a plug that unsnaps. create a call for heat after turning off to clear safetys and see if your getting 120 to fan on initial call for heat. if you are then fan draft motor is bad, usually sold as an entire assembly replace exact as it came out. sequence of operation is..... stat calls for heat via common and white wire to furnace , 24 volts. ......board sences call and sends 120 volts to forced draft ........ motor runs and creates pressure on proofing switch,....... switch closes 24 to board and tells it draft fan is on......... board then energizes ignitor,....... after ignitior glows gas valve is opened and burner lights ........ either ignitor or seperate sensor rod tells board the burner lit........ and a few minutes later the fan comes on and hot air is blown out. if a step is missed or doesn't proof the furnace either trys up to three times to light or locks out. turning off power usually resets safetys and it will resume attempts to lite normally.
