Check the main condensate drain for blockage and make sure it drains freely. I would also check the inducer motor and air intake/exhaust pipes for blockages/obstructions. If you do not find any problems in these areas, I would have the inducer checked with a magnahelic guage to determine if it is running the proper RPM's and pulling the specified amount of W.C. (water column) to activate the pressure switch and have the secondary checked for sooting/blockages.
