I have the same model furnace and it started making a rhythmic banging early this morning.  It starts about 4-5 minutes into burn cycle, is lower than the rice krispies, more like a hammer on the duct work.  It's fast, even, about 4 beats per second.  Flames look good.  I haven't let it run its course to see how long it lasts.  I lowered the thermostat so the furnace would shut off.  But the banging continues until the burners turn off.  The blower cools down the bonnet and the unit shuts down.  What's going on?
