Hi all. I recently inherited a house and storms last week flooded the basement with 8" of groundwater. Augered out the drain & water receeded but now having problems with the furnace. It's a Payne 80 Plus, the inside label says the model is a 395CAV024070. I can find nothing on it. Online schematics show a resemblance to Bryant PG8 furnace. My question is this: When I try to start the furnace the blower starts in short bursts, a clicking noise (sounds like a relay) is coming from what I believe is the control board and a red LED is blinking on & off on the side of the control board. (it does not get to the part of the startup cycle where the draft inducer turns on or the gas flows, just the main blower trying to start) Presumably the lower 8" of the furnace was immersed in the groundwater overnight. Any insight/suggestions would be appreciated. Replacing the furnace is not a viable option as funds are limited. Lookingh at possible layoff. Thanks in advance.
