Payne 90 plus condensate trap cleaning?


I have a 18 year old Payne 90 plus that's really starting to show it's age.

The water isn't draining as fast as it should and I think I just need to clean the trap. But I'm not sure how to go about it. There are 2 flexible tubes that come into the top of the plastic trap and then a pvc pipe for the output. Do I need to cut that pvc pipe off or should it be on there with a pressure fit?

I've been searching but I can't find any instructions or diagrams on exactly what to do.

I'm also not sure how to get into the heat exchanger to check for any clogs or where to check for them or if I need to do anything in there. I have replaced the inducer motor so I've seen into the heat exchanger from where fan that the inducer motor spins goes and noticed water in there.

I'm really trying to get this thing through 1 more winter, just can't afford to replace it right now.

Thanks for any advice.

Payne 90 plus condensate trap cleaning?


most of the drain lines are solvent welded fittings. I would cut and put a hose in between cut or union
