Hi, the only part on your unit that they will put a warranty on when it is new is the compressor for 1 year only. You can buy an extended warranty on the compressor for 4 years. If you loose a part now, and have to call out a tech to replace it, they will give you a 6 month warranty on parts alone. Doesn't seem right, but that's the way its done. Some contractors try and not give you any!! That's wrong and will come back on them. I hope I have been of help to you on this when you rate me. I know you will be kind. Sincerely, Shastalaker7 A/C, Heating, & Refrigeration Contractor
Also checkout this site there is alot of good info there... the warranty may be 10 years. Sometimes it works better ofr the homeowner to contact the manufacturer directly and then let them get a contractor to call you.
check for a reset able round limit switch in the burner area if fires up make sure filters are clean and no signs of flame roll-out in the burner area when fan comes on this furnace should still have mfg parts warranty left
Yes. DO NOT USE IT UNTIL IT IS FIXED! Carbon monoxide can kill you! Most manufactures will warrant their heat exchangers on 80% furnaces for twenty years. Some models only ten years.
Tubular heat exchangers are known to be very durable. If this went bad this fast the most common cause would be a faulty installation. The installer should have adjusted the gas pressure to assure proper firing of the burners. The air flow should have been adjusted according to that models rated temperature rise. And the flue pipe needed to have the proper rise, length, diameter and height to properly discharge the moist flue gases.
Get a new heating guy. Even though you have a heat exchanger warranty that will cover only parts, not labor. Unless your installer sold you a ten year parts and labor warranty. A contractor will probably charge you a flat fee of $300 -$400. or an hourly rate with trip charge and 1 1/2 - 4 hours labor. A good tech should be in and out of your home in 1 1/2 - 2 hours.
Contact GMC in Houston Texas. The have an 800 number. You will have to have the model and seril number if this is still shown in date for their warranty then you'll just have freight to pay. Otherwise you'll need a copy of your check or statement or reciept where you bought it witth the dealer or place you bought it. The SN and MN are all the factory will have to verify when made.If it sat in someones warehouse 2 or 4 years you'll need your proof of purchase to make it go 10 years from purchase.
If this helps PLEASE GRADE NE ACCORDINGLY. If You need more info I need more info. THANKS AND GOOD LUCK!!
When properly sized and professionally installed, Goodman is a quality product.
With over 20 years experience servicing and installing all the big names as well as the bargain brands, I sell and install Goodman including in my family's home.
I have been very satisfied with their products over the last 10 years or so. They had some issues with their old clamshell heat exchangers but they have redesigned them and are now using tubular heat exchangers like most major manufacturers.
Check the air cleaner, exhaust vent for Ice or obstructions. Take off the front cover, tape down the door switch and tell us what happends. Look thru a small window for flashes of light on a control as well as an orange glow. Get back to us.
Make sure the inducer motor is free of condensation and that all water is able to drain out. Unfortunately your furnace is a lower-grade “builders” model and does not have the same quality of components and workmanship as a Carrier or American Standard furnace. Prior to these failures, It was about 1/2 the price of the units mentioned. And the warranty drops off quickly. You get what you pay for. Contact Goodman to see if they will cover the cost of your parts at 1-877-254-4729 US only. Their own motto is “Quality Makes the Difference”. It sure does.
