The burner on my carrier 58MCB starts for a few seconds and then stops. I need help in locating the flame sensor to see if it needs cleaning


The flame sensor is located in the burner section and is usually in front of the last burner so that it confirms that the last burner has been lit. If you take a light abrasive pad even as light as a dollar bill or maybe an SOS pad. Polish this rod lightly to remove the light build up of carbon or dust particles. Try the heating cycle again.

Only 2 of the 4 burnerd light


Take a wrench And unscrew the orifices top name sure they are not plugged. If they are ok then check the placement of the burner tubes and make sure the pathway in between the burner tubes are clean. The pathway must be clear in order to let gas flow to the next burner. When the first burner ignites, the fire travels through the gas stream through the pathways to each of the other burners.

Heater is not igniting


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
f there is no heat, check the electrical service panel for a burned fuse or tripped breaker. Relight the pilot light (see below). If there is not enough heat, adjust the burner air shutter (see below); and clean the burner ports (see below).
If the pilot light does not light or does not stay lit, clean the pilot orifice carefully with a toothpick, test the thermocouple and replace it if it is faulty (see below).
If the flame flickers, adjust the pilot (see below).
If there is an exploding sound when the burner ignites, adjust the pilot to a higher setting and clean the pilot orifice and the burner ports.
If the burner takes more than a few seconds to ignite, clean the pilot orifice and adjust the pilot light.
If the burner flame is uneven, clean the burner ports. If the burner flame is very yellow, clean the burner; open vents in the furnace room to provide more air; adjust the burner air shutter.
If the furnace makes a rumbling noise when the burners are off, clean the burner and adjust the burner air shutter.
If the air is too dry, wash or replace the evaporator pad if you have a humidifier; test the humidistat; and adjust the water-level float to raise the water level.
If some rooms are too cool and others too warm, the distribution system may require balancing. Refer to the Forced-Air Distribution Fix-It Guide .

My oil burner trips the m.c.b, what is the cause?


Commonly Reported HVAC Problems: [Copyright © 1996-2011. Hannabery HVAC. All rights reserved.]That would be the little red button on the box at the oil burner itself. If your oil burner stops running the first thing you should check is the reset button. If you press it and the burner fires up then that was the problem. If the button should trip again then there is a definite problem and you should schedule a service call immediately. Do not keep resetting the button and ignoring the problem. afg-redbut.jpg Now, what is this button and why does it trip? It is a safety device. It shuts the burner down when it thinks there is a problem. It is on the primary control and is hooked-up to a cad cell. A light sensor. (The same thing that turns outside lights on at dusk.)
On a call for heat, with the burner running, the cad cell senses the light of the flame. If it stops sensing the light of the flame, it causes the red button to trip, shutting down the burner before any significant damage is done. Next question. Why would the sensor stop sensing light while the burner is running? Many reasons. Almost all of which require a service call. Below is a list of possible causes and things to check. Items in blue usually require a service call. Items in red however can be addressed, even fixed by the homeowner.
  • Faulty or dirty cad cell
  • Faulty primary control
  • Bad or weak ignition transformer
  • Bad burner motor
  • Bad fuel pump
  • Blocked oil filter, strainer or nozzle
  • Delayed oil valve not opening (some units)
  • Cracked electrodes
  • Improperly set electrodes
  • Air in fuel line
  • Burner running with a very high smoke
  • Burner sooted-up
  • Loose electrical connections
  • Damaged flexible coupling
  • Water in oil tank

  • Out of oil - Have your tank filled
  • Chimney blocked - Have it cleaned
  • Closed oil valve - Open valve
  • Air, Pump not primed - Prime pump - may need to call for service

The bottom causes in red are common problems and can be addressed by the homeowner. Try to check for these conditions first before calling for service. Hope this helps, remember - these are just rough guidelines and not all possible situations are covered.

I found this article on the Web So I can't take credit for it..... But it is a very good place to start for your problem It is what I would start checking if you called me for service .......Good Luck

Can you tell me the order in which each componet of a gas furnace comes on to start the furance?


Yes there is a sequence:
0:00 Dial for fan/limit switch is at 70 deg position. Furnace is cold. I turn T-stat to 80 deg to start furnace.
1:00 Burner comes on and dial begins to move slowly up.
2:30 Dial at 140 deg and fan motor comes on. Dial never goes above 150 deg.
3:00 Burner turns off. Dial slowly moves back towards 90 deg.
4:45 Burner turns on and dial is at 110 deg.
4:50 Fan turns off with dial still at 110 deg.
5:30 Burner off. Dial at 120 deg.
6:15 Fan on. Dial at 140 deg. Burner is still off.
7:00 Burner on. Dial at 120 deg.
7:40 Burner off. Dial still at 120 deg.
8:30 Fan off with dial at 110 deg., and it quickly snaps back to the 80 deg. position.
8:30 plus, cycle continues.....

Gas furnace, main burner ignites the other 2 don't. then shutdn.


Between the burners is a small rail in the pressed steel where the flame runs across to light the other burners and it sounds like there is dirt or debris in the step over rails causing the problem. You will need to use some compressed air on those rails to clear them out. Once the rails are clear the other two burners should ignite right away.

Burner propblem


have you tried to wipe off the fire eye on the unit if it has one? If it's dirty too then it will not see the flame and not let the unit come on correctly. Good Luck and have a Happy New Year.
