Your furnace should have a door or two in front, I call them doors, I guess they're covers really. Top one covers the burner section usually, bottom one for the blower section. If the bottom door is...

You may need to call a plumber. I haven't seen two pieces of equipment share a 1/2" line in black, much less soft copper. The furnace will have it's own gas requirements, it needs X amount of water...

That button is a contactor. If it's not being sucked in, then something on the low voltage side of the system is not sending the requisite voltage through. You'll need a voltmeter if you want to...

I've seen the limit set at 200, off at 100 and the blower set to run at around 150. I could check my truck for the part but I'm fairly sure that's what the one I was working on yesterday was set at....

You don't really need G unless Y for your A/C is ran directly to the condenser from the t-stat. If that's the case, then you need to keep G in it's place, since it'll run the condenser without...

You can use a plastic adhesive backed wire tie or one of those screw in wire ties. It should provide you with a bit more security than duct tape. Is this for hot surface ignition or a spark? If you...

I'd feel alright with the 3 tests. If you really want the extra security that you're alright I'd say install CO detectors in the bedrooms if they're not there already. This way you know for sure that...

Probably the negative pressure switch sticking open. It's supposed to close when not in use, if it stays open, it'll lock out the system. The blower runs as kind of a warning to call somebody to...

To do a CO test you really want to do it near the vents where air is coming out, as that's where the CO would be leaking into. If your heat exchanger is really in bad shape after 5-9 years it'd be...

If it has LEDs on the circuit board, you can count first before turning the power off and see if one of the doors has a flash code chart. Turn the power off, leave it on by the termostat with the fan...

Post up the make and model. Just going by what you've provided, I'm guessing it's a State, Kenmore or A.O. Smith HWT with a pizo ignitor(push button so you don't have to stick a match in there).

You need to be about 3 feet away from any windows with direct venting.

Bad breaker won't let the unit turn on if it doesn't get the requisite voltage. Which I believe is somewhere about 198 volts or so for 230v condensers. It can mimic all sorts of other issues, such as...

Possibly a bad run cap. If you didn't change the capacitor when you changed the motor then that would probably be why. It's extremely preferable to change the motor and run cap at the same time.
