Ok I am attempting to hopefully get some clues within the next 20 hours before I have to call a professional and cough up some money. I have already search here and found no answers. Search all over on the net and youtube but nothing.

I have a less than 3 year old Goodman GMH95 just yesterday it did not work. The only thing that is happening is it is humming. I am also getting a LED code 3.

Here's what I have checked. I have checked to make sure there is no clog on my intake/exhaust pipe (can't see all the way through). Main fuse unit is all good, small fuse inside furnace is still good. Outlet that plugs in is working properly. All wires seems to be connected tightly. Thermostat works find and clicks when I turn on the heat. When I turn on to make the fan on continuously the fan doesn't turn on. People keep saying find a red reset button but I cannot find one.

I am not knowledgeable in furnace some when people give out some parts name I wouldn't know what is what. If you do it would be helpful if you describe what and where on the furnace you are refering too.

Thank you in advance. I will keep messing with it for the next few hours. 8 degrees outside, yaaaaay!!!

Thank you for the reply, I am desperate lol. Found out late last night and had to go to an event all day. Now home and looking all over the net and youtube for answers but nothing.

NO the inducer is not running. I think if it's running it would be loud and all I hear is a low humming noise. Actually since I came home I don't even hear the humming noise anymore. All fuse and power outlets work.


Thanks.

Sounds like a Bad inducer motor. I seem to have heard about this a lot with Goodman Furnaces on this forum. Check out Pex Supply.

I wonder how the warrantee works? I know there a 10 yr warrantee and a 5 yr parts warrantee. How can I make a claims and how long it takes. I'll call later as I'm a work. Hopeful to find a solution and it happens to be an easy minor issue. Fingers crossed.

You know it looks to me like the white wire at the bottom of the inducer motor has broken, or fallen off? Is this the case? or am I just seeing things?

If this is the worst suffering you ever have to endure, consider yourself the luckiest man on the face of the earth, my friend, and thank God for your good luck.

Check out Pex supply they have quite a few Goodman/Amana Inducers

Those are the ones he means I think. Take them off at the pressure switch and make sure the inlet tube is not clogged with crud.

ok, guys, I'm pretty sure we determined the inducer was not running....................... Next step was supposed to be checking voltage....... never did hear how that turned out if at all.

Sorry guys never got to it, just let the repair man do the work. Plus I started to get sick from the virus going around. Today repair guy came and found a bad inducer motor. Parts were free from my warrantee since the unit was only 2.75 yrs old. They were the ones that installed it so they had it in stock. Took about 45 min to install. I just paid for labor for $189. Kind of high I'm thinking but can't complain about getting heat.
