Thanks Pete

I'll put the new switch in and see what happens.

Before that, I'll check to see if the hole to the inducer motor is clogged.

I'll let you know how it goes.

Thanks again

OK...excellent advice, thanks!

I'll go with the 1/2 inch plywood and will see about renting a stapler. I already have a compressor.

Will 3/4 inch staples do the job?

Sorry, forgot to add this to the last post:

For the new plywood, should we screw it into the joists or can it get just screwed into the original plywood?

Thanks for the quick replies and I see your point about adding another layer of plywood and then going with thinner cement board.

Makes perfect sense but are you sure about the 3/4 inch...

Thanks Ray

Called around this AM and found that no one carries ABS in stock. The only way I can get what I need would be to order a 20 ft. pipe--and that's about 19 more feet than I need.

At Ray's...

Thanks for the advice Carbide, it sounds like it should work as long as I can make a good connection inside the elbow. The inside of the elbow's hub is in pretty good shape. I used a heat gun to get...

Overheating sounds about right

Thanks Grady, it does appear to get pretty hot just prior to shut down. Therefore, a fan control issue does make perfect sense. I'll try to locate the manual for the furnace, maybe it will have a...
