Problem: I am trying to replace the furnace control board on my Goodman furnace. How do I remove my furnace control board without breaking the plastic pins that hold the board in place? I tried needle nose pliers and my fingers, but I am afraid I am going to break the control board pins that hold the board in place. Do you have an recommendations?

Answer: A customer of ours Mr. Young, sent me this Youtube video (below) which shows how to easily remove a furnace control board using a Bic ink pen with the ink cartridge removed. I will be sure to keep an ink pen with the ink cartridge removed in my tool box! Thanks to Total Air Supply Inc. for making this great video!
