Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Expert:  BillyHvac replied 1 year ago.

and also when the furnace is turned on...does the small motor that blows air out the plastic pipe come on?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
2 white pipes yes
Expert:  BillyHvac replied 1 year ago.

and the exhaust fan...does it start up...sounds like a bathroom exhaust fan...

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Motor not clicking on
Expert:  BillyHvac replied 1 year ago.

thank you. Can you remove the plastic pipe from the motor and look in? Or can you rotate the fan by hand at all?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
no it doesnt turn on
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
ill try removing the pipe to look in
Expert:  BillyHvac replied 1 year ago.

we have a few choices...motor gets power but is stuck by a rodent, bird or nest.

motor does not get power = bad board

motor gets power and nothing is stuck = bad motor

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
its pretty new so would be surprised if its a bad motor

Expert:  BillyHvac replied 1 year ago.

usually it is because something crawled into the warm pipe....unfortunately you have to remove to find out. Is the unit still under warranty?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Not sure but ill heck. Thanks for your help
Expert:  BillyHvac replied 1 year ago.

If you need anything else let me know....aso while the uit is coding 3...feel the exhaust motor...if it is warm/hot you likely have something stuck inside.
