Goodman furnace motor is dirty

Due to dust and dirt accumulation, my motor furnace motor is whining. How do I clean the internal parts?

    Just an FYI. I wasn't asking how to clean the internal part of the motor, I was asking how best to clean the internal portion of the housing when you take the front cover off. (smile) It's VERY hard to get my hands inside to clean in there; nevertheless a vacuum hose. Also, there is no whistle sound, just a slight odor coming out of the heat registers and a sound when the blower motor kicks on, I'm guessing because of the dirt and debris buildup. Thank you!

The blower motor, squirrel cage (fan) and its housing can be removed as a whole part. Disconnect the wiring harness to the motor, remove the ground wire. Look for a couple of screws that mount the blower housing to the furnace. they will 5/16 head size and usually be at the top. The bottom slides into a metal notch on the frame. With a little work and maybe a few cuss words, pull the whole thing out. A shop vac or air compressor will remove the dirt. Some dirt may be determined to stay, so a stiff bristle brush may be needed. Replace in opposite way you removed it. If the whistle remains, check the duct work and metal panels, and anywhere there is a gap or tape. This may be the cause of the whistling noise, but cleaning the vent holes in the motor and the fan blades cant hurt and will help the efficiency of the system and increase the life of the equipment. If the whining is the little vent motor up top, then try oiling with a thin turbine type oil, or just replace it, as they are relatively cheap. If you are asking about cleaning the internal parts of the motor, I wouldn't recommend doing that. If there is an oil port on the motor housing, use the oil I recommended earlier. Most likely it has a sleeve bearing not a roller type, so that's about it.

I have a goodman that flashes 4 times.what do i look for


Sounds like an open limit switch. The limit switch will open due the furnace overheating. Few reasons:
1) Dirty air filter
2) Dirty blower wheel/assembly
3) Weak Capacitor
4) Improper airflow across heat exchanger.

Compresser want stay running


Your problem could be as simple as dirty condenser coils or a burned out condenser fan. These components are on the bottom of the refrigerator and removing a couple of panels should give you access to them. Clean dust and dirt off the coils and check to see if the bottom fan is running when the refrigerator is running.

What is possibly happening is that excessive pressure builds up in the refrigerant lines due to the lack of air moving over the coils, caused either by a dust and dirt accumulation or a burned out fan. Or both. I know this may not sound logical, but dust and dirt is your refrigerators number ONE enemy. You'd be surprised how often this relatively simple (and FREE) fix will correct your problem.

My Goodman GDS80703ANA will go through the sequence of starting up but when the gas ignites it shuts down not even 30 seconds into burning what is this? Help Im in Michigan and its still chilly!


Should be an easy fix. Take the front panel off the furnace that accesses the valve, burner, etc.
Find your pilot assembly, this consists of the hot surface ignitor, (which glows bright when lighting) and the little rod next to it about around as a pencil lead. This is the sensor. Your sensor needs to be taken out and cleaned. One screw should hold it. It has one wire that leads to it. You may have to unplug the wire, be sure to notice where it goes before you unplug it.
The sensor can only be cleaned with very fine sandpaper or emery cloth. Do not get your fingers all over it or get it wet. After cleaning it put it back it in where it goes. Biggest chances are, your furnace will work fine! Hope this works. Stay warm.

How do I clean the soot and dirt out of my empire furnace?


If the furnace has been service annually there shouldn't be any soot in it. Soot in a furnace is caused my incomplete combustion, due to clogged or dirty burners. In any event, the bast way to clean it is use a shop vac with a brush attachment of the hose. A crevice tool will also be helpful.
To keep the soot in the shop vac, it's a good idea to purchase a dust back to fit that shop vac. They're normally used fro vacuuming sheet rock dust, but work equally well for soot. DO NOT use a domestic vacuum cleaner.

But, before you do anything, make sure the pilot light has been turned OFF and the furnace is cool.

Remove the front panel(s) of the furnace/heater and you will access to all of the inner workings.

This should help you get it clean.

My goodman furnace, model number GDS80703AXBB has a red light bllinking 4 times and the panel says it means open high limit... how do i fix this?


Hello, a limit switch will open when the furnace gets too hot, the switch senses that the temperature is too hot and shut down the furnace for safety. Uusally a limit switch will open because of lack of airflow across the heat exchanger, this could be due to a dirty air filter, dirty blower wheel, or the blower motor itself is not running at the proper speed. I hope this helps.

Dirty filters, dirty coils, collapsed duct work, or a fan motor with the blades covered in dirt, dust, mold etc reducingthe airflow.
