Yuri Help! look please - lennox g26 draft inducer motor drain?


Should there be a drain at the bottom of the squirrel cage. I'm looking at replacing my third draft inducer motor in just over a year. Any help would be appreciated.

Post a pic of it and the complete model and serial # of the furnace . Where have you bought the inducers from? Does your furnace have 3" plastic venting.

Hi Yuri and thanks for replying. It's my Dad's furnace. He doesn't have a computer, so I'm the go-between. We will have pictures and the other info you asked for as soon as possible. Thanks again.

How cold does it get at night in Missouri when this happens?

We have had some temps at -10 around the time the draft inducer motor started squealing (seems to be a precursor to failure). See my other post here:

Thanks again

HELP- Lennox Elite Series Furnace # M/N 90UGFA3-75-5
Read this post carefully. You may be getting water in the bottom of the inducer and overloading it and burning it out. Same inducer and drain as yours. Remove the intake pipe at the top of the furnace and check the screen underneath for blockage. Can increase the velocity of the smoke/draft thru the heat ex and carryover water into the inducer. Check the intake pipe outside for blockage/leaves/spider webs. Where did you buy the inducers from, a Lennox dealer?
Was that-10 F or Celsius. Celsius is -23 and that is pretty darn cold.
