How common is it to see a furnace upside down? The data plate states 0" clearance to combustables on all sides and 1" at the top, is that the top as designed or as installed?

When they added the AC there wasn't enough clearance left in the crawl...

I can't tell for sure if the rust is from the coil or the condensate drain that was dumping on it.

No manual on site. No service records either. The data plate on this unit was installed under (uhm, over?) the induction fan, making it a real PITA to read, even worse while lying on the floor looking up at it. I intend to call lenox to get their opinion but I thought I'd post it here first. I forced it through two cycles to make sure the diagnostic codes where the same, it's brain doesn't seem to mind being upside down. There is so much wrong with the ducting in the crawl it might be easier to run new in the attic and flip this thing over.

At least the filter was clean[:D]

Thanks guys. The model and serial where all I could read on the data plate, the rest of it was like a novella in tiny print. I tried to take pictures of it but I can't read those either.

I will be searching the lennox website and/or calling their tech dept. on this one. Right or wrong they still need a tech to fix the ducts, roached plenum, and condensate drain anyway.
