I think the running on power up is just a test mode for a service person.

This sounds like a thermal disc or the heat anticipator on the thermostat is not set right. What was the $500 spent on?

Heat exchanger replacement for carrier weathermaker 8000


After 18 years of service, it is not cost effective to just replace the heat exchanger. Go the complete replacement route. There may be a utility company incentive to do it.

Carrier Weathermaker 9200 Gas Furnace Error Code 31


A month or so ago, I woke up to discover that I had no heat in my house. I went to the furnace to do a diagnostic check, removed the service door and quickly discovered that there was no flame (visible through the glass peep-hole).

I followed the manufacturer's shut-off procedure, which can be found in the manual, here: http://legalectric.org/f/2011/03/carrier-9200-weathermaker-uhe-om58-67.pdf. When I turned the furnace back on, I saw that the igniter did not glow (should be visible through the same peep-hole - should look like a red-hot, 2-prong tuning fork) and that the red LED error code indicator (visible through the lower peep-hole) was blinking 3 short flashes and 1 long flash (error code 31).

Now what I SHOULD HAVE done was check the pressure switch first (see service manual pg. 3, component #16). By removing the rubber lines that connect tot the pressure switch, one end at a time and both at the pressure switch and the bottom of the igniter box, you may notice some debris in the lines or the male adapters on the pressure switch or igniter box. If you do, clear out the debris with a paper clip (don't insert the paper clip into the body of the pressure switch, though). After checking all connections for debris, disconnect the hose that connects to the top of the pressure switch at the "T" between the pressure switch and the igniter box and blow/suck air in and out of the pressure switch (lightly). If you hear a small click when you pass air in and out, that's the pressure switch functioning. If you hear crackling or you can't blow in/out easily, you probably have a bad pressure switch.

if you are able to make the pressure switch click, connect all lines and start up the furnace per the mfg recommendations. If the furnace kicks on, it was probably a blockage in the pressure switch lines (likely if you found gunk in the lines or male adaptors on the pressure switch), but it may still be a faulty pressure switch (my problem... when I blew in and out to the pressure switch, I could hear the silicone diaphragm cracking). I got mine going, albeit temporarily, by removing the pressure switch and passing air in and out (blowing pretty hard) with my lips on the bottom hose adapter until I could hear the diaphragm crackle free and it became easier to make it click on and off. That only bought me a few days, though. After that, I bought a replacement pressure switch at a plumbing supply place and replaced the old one. If you found gunk in the lines, I would suggest you have your furnace serviced and let the tech know what you found and where.

If neither procedure fixes the problem, it may be the igniter. For some odd reason, this issue started for me about a month ago and I replaced the igniter (YouTube video instructions are easy to find), which fixed the problem. If even that doesn't work, call a local tech, shut the gas off and wait around in some thick blankets! I hope this helped!

Does my furnace require outside air?


I'm surprised the building inspector allowed the condensing furnace you described draw combustion air from the garage !! I'm not familiar with any manufacturer that recommends that as normal practice. Virtuall ALL two pipe condensing furnaces require both pvc pipes to be terminated OUTSIDE the structure with specific heights and distances apart. There is also a limit to the length of both the flu and the combustion air piping and each 90 degree pvc elbow adds the resistance equivalant of roughly 10' of straight pipe. If re-routing is required, you have to bear in mind the direction of 'fall' in the piping usually goes back towards the furnace and remember two 45's may give you a greater variance of change in the piping and still be equal to the equivalant of one 90.

Personally, I would never suggest terminating the fresh air (combustion air) intake between floors of a structure.

I have a carrier weathermaker 9200 - Water is leaking from under the furnace. I have checked the humidifier and in the furnace itself and cant find where the water is coming from. The furnace runs and...


Chances are it's from the condesate tubes or collector box. If not, you may have a cracked A/C drain pan- lots of installers over tighten the male adapter into them and cause cracks. next check to see if they installed all the condensate plugs at install, some installers don't- read the manual in the "how to set up the condesate" section and trace EVERY tube to make sure they are routed correctly and not cracked/ cut/ nicked. Most furnaces are multi-position now and some installers don't move every tube nessessary... Hope this helps, if not, post a close-up pic, and I'll pinpoint the bad spot for you...

Where is the drain pan on a carrier weathermaker 8000?


Hello, the drain line will be located under the unit near the condenser coil. Sometimes it can get blocked and the condensate will settle toward the front of the unit and leak from the unit. Also, make sure the unit is tilted back in the window about a 1/4 inch aswell.

Carrier 38TZA036320 evaporator coil


Hello, sounds like a blocked drain line or cracked condensate pan. Try cleaning the drain line first with a wet/dry vac at the outlet of the 3/4 inch pvc line, if this does not help you will need to have the drain pan repaired or replaced.
