There is a flame proving device located at the end of the burners looks like a bare wire just hanging there. Take some steel wool and gently rub the carbon off the surface of the wire. It don't take much 3 or 4 stokes will be good.

Carrier Weather MAker 8000 two speed Ignition proving fault


the flame sensor needs to be cleaned. its a rod about a 1/16" diameter and has one wire connected to it. you will need to remove it and clean with soft sand paper. its located at in front of the burner opposite the igniter. ie if the ignitor is in front of the far right burner then the sensor will be in front of the far left burner

Carrier Weather Maker 8000 with 88,000 btu natural gas furnace lights and runs sometimes and other times it will light and then shut-off when the electric pilot turns off? Does this sound like a bad...


Hi, You say that it will light and then shut-off when the ELECTRIC pilot shuts off? If it has an automatic pilot ignition, it wouldn't have a thermocouple? It would have an ignition module with a flame sensor. Could you check this for me and let me know which one you have for sure? I can help you out better if I knew. Thank you and please get back to me.
Sincerely, Shastalaker7
Ps If it is electronic, there will be a flame sensor mounted next to the pilot. It has a ceramic body with a metal rod coming from the end.You can take a piece of steel wool not sand paper and clean the metal rod (sensor). The pilot flame will surround this keeping the burners on.After cleaning it, and if the pilot continues to go out, I would say that you're ignition module has an intermittent internal problem, and needs to be changed.

Gas not coming on Carrier Weather Maker 8000


either the gas valve is not opening or your not getting gas to the furnace.  also the gas valve won't open unless the draft motor comes on.  if the ignitor is trying to light, but there's no gas, it might be a bad gas valve. i would call your closest NATE certified contractor

Carrier Weather Maker not blowing anything


if you turn on just the fan at thermostat does it run.
if not then the fan motor / belt / relay / start capacitor is the issue.
if your not familiar with ac then you will need help to diagnose the air handler.
belt is easy.
just take a look by opening the side access panel

Carrier furnace weathermaker 8000


. Several times of recyling power normally brings the furnance up. Though the failure code has always been 31, there are several different behaviour when the blower starts after reset :
a. blower simply creases.
b. there is an attempt to start the heating unit (I hear the high pitch noises), then everything stops.
c. there is an attempt to start the heating unit (I hear the high pitch noises), once I see the orange glow from the coil, normally the gas is lit up and the unit starts working.
