Goodman furnace hums but won't start.

Contractor's Assistant: Did you check the furnace's filters?

Yes

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

It's Christmas.so yes there is a red light. That goes on and starts flashing after a couple seconds on the control board mounted to the fan

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Sorry I'm not a furnace guy it's10 degrees out and just need the furnace to work.hopefully before has to pay triple price service call

Contractor's Assistant: JustAnswer requires a modest payment. You'll see the amount on the next page. It's way less expensive than face-to-face would cost. And you're covered by our 100% satisfaction guarantee.

No .
When I turn it by hand it's squeaky and kinda hard
HVAC Technician: BillyHvac, Journeyman HVAC Tech replied 6 months ago

Ok then we have either something crawled in (bird, rodent etc) or the wheel inside has become defective. This means removing the motor housing from furnace or at a minimum removing the vent pipe from motor to try and see in the housing.

Ok .I have to get some tools it's going to be a 30 mins to get it done
HVAC Technician: BillyHvac, Journeyman HVAC Tech replied 6 months ago

Nothing in there.
Just turns kinda hard
HVAC Technician: BillyHvac, Journeyman HVAC Tech replied 6 months ago

Then you need a new inducer motor. If the fins and wheel are all in place...and nothing in housing..then the motor is bad.

Sorry for bad holiday news...

Ok. Would have to call a furnace guy to get one today?
HVAC Technician: BillyHvac, Journeyman HVAC Tech replied 6 months ago

That is correct...and you need to call a dealer that carries parts for your furnace.
