Customer Question
Hi Scott, Amana 90 furnace, like...
Hi Scott,
Amana 90 furnace, like many of the questions I'm reading on here. I have leaking issues. I have the inducer plate off, and the plate that attaches to furnace wall (3 screw on each side, does not seem to come off. I can see the gasket had dropped out and I think I read that this gasket is for air and not water. I can RTV the inducer plate after peeling out the gasket, but do I need to go further and remove the main plate?

I have removed the plastic inducer plate but the leak by the rust line appears to be behind the aluminum plate that the plastic plate bolts to. It does not want to come off and I did not want to force it, but you say it should pull forward and off?

Still there?
HVAC Technician: airheatman, HVAC Technician replied 2 years ago

LOL. Yes but I dumbfounded.I am an Amana dealer but have no idea on this one.I thought you had the round inducer as shown in pictures I sent. I am going to opt out to see if another expert is familiar with this.

I am going to open to other experts who may be able to assist with better accuracy rather that just tell you to start changing parts which would be less than professional and a guess at best without doing some troubleshooting.Please wait to see if someone is available more familiar with your unit.Replying will send this back to my desk and delay the process of getting an answer to your question

Your picture is correct. I removed the inducer, and then the plastic plate that the inducer is screwed to, that exposes the plate that I sent you a picture of.
