    Loud what? Banging sound? When did it happen? As soon as the thermostat called for heat, or when the fan began blowing the air?

    The loud noise is when the fan starts to blow and the filters seem to get sucked in.

    you have a restriction in the duct. The noise is the oil canning I described. If your using high capacity filter and they are installed in the rooms rather next to the furnace they are to restrictive or plugged with dust. Remove them and see if there

    Yea, as usual I agree with Woodbridge. Let me tell you this though, just the simple fact that it is a Goodman furnace should have you concerned. If it is a air restriction this makes the heat exchanger more prone to fail as he said but in the ten year

    I love the phrase "oil canning" and know exactly what you mean......my Dad's oil can made a little "ta-dink, ta-dink" noise every time he used it lubricate motors.

    I started putting in Goodman condensers when they came out in the early 80's Sold a bunch of them to people who wanted a cheep way out when their older condenser failed. I put one in at a home about 15 min away from my house. Got it running cleaned up

    I have a Goodman furnace and AC. After the AC is on for 1-2 hours the furnace starts making a loud noise and the AC is not working well. The furnace seems to freeze up and there is water evident at the bottom of the furnace?
