Question about Carrier XHB123D X/Y Series Heat/Cool Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Furnace pilot is on, pilot ignitor continues to click, no main flame

I have a Carrier Weathermaker SX model 58SX060-CC-1, series 150, 66,000 BTU furnace. The intake/exhaust fan starts when the thermostat tells it to, the pilot lights, but the main flame does not ignite. The pilot ignitor continues to click like it does not notice the pilot is lit (I think). The thermostat is connected also to an A/C system, all of which works fine (main house air circulation is good).

    I fixed it by replacing the ignitor assembly. When I took out the old one, I saw alot of buildup like hard water staining. Turns out the A/C was dripping into the combustion chamber, and the ignitor assembly sits in a little depression. Perfect place for water to accumulate and cause buildup and corrosion. Thanks for the input!

Sounds like the sensing bar on the spark ignition is dirty.....a wire brush works nicely.

    well, in my case the ignitor is working fine, it does not continue sparking, it gives normal low flame, but there is no main flame

Carrier Weathermaker SX model 58SX060-CC Blower runs all the time


Remove all power from the furnace, it is likely the brain in the furnace is need of being reset, from the battery replacement, why did you change the battery, was there an indicator telling you to change it?

Many times just removing all the power to the furnace will do the trick with a reset, if not let me know and we will go from there, but it sounds like the main brain is confused or bad, more likely confused, so try the power removed first.

Than let me know wbwill@sbcglobal.net

There are 4 -steps for full run time to kick in a furnace.. step-1, inducer fan runs & prove thru the air tube which closes a switch and tell the circuit board to go to step-2, the igniter lights the pilot & prove its lit by heating the thermocouple, which tells the circuit board to go to step-3, opens the gas valve to dump gas in, which will light from the pilot light, and prove by a flame sensor metal stick on the last burner , which heats up and tell the circuit board Saying, ok , I've got flame.. step-4. when the box heats up, it closes a switch and turn on the main fan...! (Some gas-valves has a brain -or circuit board on top of them and are real sensetive to moisture..)

Your blower motor may have failed. Check the blower motor for the air circulation and you may find it is hot but not running. Have the motor replaced if this is the case.
