Pressure switch stuck open. Needs replacement

The warranty for this model is ten years on parts, etc. and lifetime of the furnace for the heat exchanger. This comes with a rather large caveat. You must have registered the product with Goodman within 60 days of the unit being installed. If you didn't register it with Goodman within the original 60 days then the warranty on the heat exchanger is 20 years and everything else is five years.
To act on the warranty you must do the following taken from a warranty for this model I found here http://www.goodmanmfg.com/Portals/0/pdf/Warranties/PWCFURN.pdf:
"As its only responsibility, and your only remedy, Goodman will furnish (i)
a replacement part, without charge for the part only, to replace any part
that is found to be defective due to workmanship or materials under
normal use and maintenance, or (ii) for a heat exchanger that is covered
by the lifetime warranty and that fails in the first 10 years, a new, equivalent
furnace. For warranty credit, the defective part must be returned to a
Goodman heating and air conditioning products distributor by a state
certified or licensed contractor."
For more information and to find out more precisely if you are covered I would give Goodman a call.
Hope this helps.
To keep legal happy, let me just say that I am not an HVAC contractor, and you should never even look at your furnace without having a qualified, liability accepting HVAC contractor present.
