Question about Heating & Cooling
SOURCE: Carrier Heating furnace
either the gas at the outside valve is off, or the gas valve at the furnace may be off, or the switch on top of the gas valve in the furace may be off. if they are all on, then you may not be getting a call for heat from the stat to the furnace control board. check to see if you are getting a 24 volt signal from the stat to the w terminal and common terminal on the furnace board. if you are then check to see if the voltage is arriving as 24 volts to the wires at the gas valve itself . if it is then the gas valve is possibly bad. if it is not then the board is possibly bad.look for loose or broken connections on the low voltage wiring. most unusual that the board does everything else but send power to the gas valve. you need to zero in on the valve i think and start by turning off power and that should restart the sequence of operation and you can observe it step by step . if you are not getting a call for heat then the stat may be bad be sure you are in heat , fan in auto and temp pushed up to max. if no 24 volts is sent to furnace board white and common low voltage board then stat is bad. remove it if you think its faulty and jumper the white and red wires together on the subbase. that duplicates what the stat normally does. if the furnace lights its the stat. having said that i realize the stat has to be sending a heat signal or the other stuff would'nt start. so..... back to the furnace board. check that 24 volts in from stat and 24 out to valve and that will put you on your problem item. good luck

well it has blown the fuse on the transformer, then you have coil switch bad.It could be the coil on the contath in for cooling.But can check by taking the yellow wire a loose and see if the don't blow. The red wire is one side of the transformer and the com could be any color.But look at the red wire because it is the main wire that travel the voltage throuhg the unit.

To determine three phase, there wil be three hot wires from the breaker, which will have three wires. 240 single phase will have two hot wires, and the breaker will have two hot wires. Besides the hot wires, there will be a white wire,called common, which is used to make 110volt single phase where necessary. There should also be a green wire, which is safety ground. The BTU rating should be on the name plate. As far as I know, 2000BTU=1 ton

You say the heater is 'old', so I assume that it's out of its 2 year warranty? Are you referring to the wall-switch or the switch on the heater itself?
The customer service department will be able to give you guidance on finding the problem and resolving it. If you call 0845 600 5111 and have your series number (top left of the unit) and model (CXL) to hand they will be able to help you.
P.S. Please don't try to take the heater apart or remove it from the wall unless you have experience in working on storage heaters, as the unit is VERY heavy!
