Broke furnace?


Hi there,
I have a 1 year old Goodman furnace which I think something may be wrong with. When the AC/heat is turned off through the thermostat, I hear a clicking sound one or two times an hour. Seems like it's coming from the furnace. The furnace itself works fine when turned on (cools and heats the house) It doesn't sound like a pilot trying to light.

Do furnaces normally make clicking sounds even when switched off? Is it the thermostat trying to communicate with the furnace?

If I get a professional to come and take a look at it where should I direct him to look?

Broke furnace?


Could be from metal expanding and contracting in the furnace

Thanks, is there anything I can do to make the clicking stop?

I wonder why metal would expand/contract even though the heat or AC wasn't running for months.

Just turned on the heat today and going to monitor whether I hear the clicks.

It is probably one of the relays on the control board you hear clicking. For example, every time the blower turns on or off the blower relay is activated and clicks. The blower is set up to run for 30, 60, 90, or 120 seconds after the furnace or a/c shuts off. Does the click you hear sound like the one the thermostat makes when it turns on or off?

It's possible that's the case when the thermostat is switched to "on", however I've been hearing the clicks/ticking for months now even though the thermostat has been set to "off."

It's a fairly loud distinctive click if you're in the basement and sounds like a small metal object tapping on the furnace. Last year there was some condensation dripping into the furnace and caused it to malfunction. We had to get a new furnace. I'm worried that perhaps the same thing is happening and causing some type of electrical issues and that's causing the clicking I'm hearing. Is there a possibility of fire?

I would think that there should be no noise coming from a furnace that isn't being used, but I could be wrong.

If you had a contractor sell and install this furnace last year. Then it should still be under the 1 year labor warranty from that contract. call them back out to check it. Don't wait till the warranty expires.
