Hi

I came home from vacation in AZ today to find my place ice cold. Outside temp is 15 below and the day I left it was a blizzard snow storm

It could not have been out the entire time because it was not that cold 55 inside

 

KG6RC 040C-08A

I was getting 3 blinking lights on the control board and I could hear the water in the fan housing. I removed the cap and pulled the hose off the pressure switch and put it back on. Everything reset and it is running now but I can still hear a little water

 

Could in the intake be full of snow?

 

What else ?

 

I am a retired Appliance tech (35 years) but do not have ant HVAC training. Just enough to get in trouble

Might snow have covered your roof jack and built up around it?

If so,that may be the source of your water.

The intake is on the side of my building. The PVC that feeds the induction fan (in line drain assembly) has a tube that goes to the floor drain.

I see water running/dripping steady. If I leave the cap on the inducer fan housing it will eventually trip the pressure switch.

Can I run it with the cap off so It heats until I solve the snow problem

NO! It will allow combustion gasses to enter the house. What brand of furnace? Can you share a picture? The drain for the condensate is clogged and needs to be flushed. The picture/models number will help me to give you specifics on procedure, but the gist of it is the trap needs to be flushed and that will allow the inducer to throw the water, and stop this from collecting. The condensate is a natural occur acne for furnaces that are vented with PVC we call them "condensing" furnaces for that reason. They have a drain that collects the condensate from the heat exchanger and the exhaust riser then it goes to a gravity drain or a pump that gets rid of the condensate.
That which does not kill me only makes me stronger.....at this rate I'll be invincible by Tuesday!
