Rummmmmbllllee

Howwwwdddyyy.

So, fired up furnace first time this season. Yeah, we live in Central Texas...

After a few moments of fan only, as I stand outside by the furnace,5 "woosh", I get the sound of the furnace burner coming to life!

I see 3 small embers come out after about a minute... Then two more about a minute apart. Then they stop coming and things are merrily humming.

I find my way inside... Warming nicely!!! After running about 7-8 minutes, I notice a "rumble"...hmmmm was that there before? It is a different harmonic.. Not scraping, not metallic... Just a rumble... All appears fine... System cycles and when fan runs I have slight rumble.

It doesn't set your teeth on edge... Just rumbles...

I did not see any debris or mud dauber residue on fan blades...

So.... Any thoughts other than "turn up the radio"?

Drive more to the center of the lane. Those rumble strips can cause havoc.

Sorry, I don't know anything about a rumble. Mine was squealing. Had to replace the motor, and the ultimate cause of my problem, the dinosaur board. Still works great! Mine would cycle, but the fan sometimes would fail to shut off, eventually blowing cold air around. I lived with it for a while, but when the fan started squealing, I ordered a new motor, and a new board at the same time (late winter 2012). It has worked like a champ ever since.

Propane burns dirty - you can get a lot of soot buildup... so getting your water heater and furnace tuned up periodically can really make each safer and more efficient. And with propane appliances it's best to have a mentor who really knows what she or he is doing - or just pay a pro.
