Carrier 58GS150-CB ignites but fan will not blow (Loud Buzzing)

My 20 y/o Carrier fires up no problem. My problem is when the fan kicks in there is just a loud buzzing noise. The buzzing lasts for 30 seconds or so and buzzing stops. 5 minutes later again will again start buzzing. If I put thermostat in Fan position the buzzing is constant.

Please Help its 24F here in Ohio

    After removing fan assembly service panel all looked very clean except there was what looked to me to be a large amount of dust inside fan motor. I was able to turn squirrel cage with no resistance. Any suggestions? Also took out four fan assembly screws, removed fan speed wire, and power wires. Any trick of trade to pull this bad boy out.. or to oil motor without doing so? ( rear panel is not accessible)

    I let furnace cycle with service panel switch pressed closed with duct tape. I definitely could see motor attempt to turn squirrel cages but to no avail. Shut down power to furnace and will begin removal of fan motor. CHALLENGE: removing vent housings! unlocked set screews and marked position of screw to shaft for reinstall but cant get them removed. Was told not to use a hammer, any suggestions.

The loud buzzing soud i found to be the fan blower motor. I removed the fan bracket assembly and sprayed a little WD-40 on the set screws and protruding shaft so that sqirrel cages could be removed. (Also marked position of set screws on shaft) once squirrel cages were removed I removed 4 motor mounting bolts. Cleaned sqirrel cages and housings with industrial strenghth rim cleaner to remove solid dirt and will replace motor and capacitor.
BTW thanks for nothing

Fan heater blower on dimplex cadogan CGN 20 not working properly0 optimyst electric stove


Take it out and see if the fan wil turn by hand. It may have somethng obstructing it. The clicking is the motor overload. It wil burn out if it continues to keep clicking.

Why is unit making a buzzing noise that stops only when the interlock switch activates by opening the door?


When the door is open the safety switch turns off power.
1. low voltage transformer may be the culprit. Also a bad fan relay.
very carfully with door off off close safety switch with a insulated probe touch transformer and listen for the buzz.
2. with the transformers it can be a common problem. Check for loose mounting screws.

It is very loud inside when turned on. the noise sounds like a loud rumbleling noise.


Is this a window unit, a whole house AC, or a Split package type?

If it is a window unit remove the front cover, reach in and see if the blower fan teeters on the mother shaft. If it does the blower fan center hub has failed and the fan will need replaced. (I have changed 2 blower fans on my Carrier 19,800BTU window units that run 23 hours a day.) They just fail over time. Who knows why.

A buzzing noise


Why do you say put in line to stop the buzzing? What is it that tells you the wire is creating the buzz?

It could be anything from a loose sheet metal part, rivet, fan, transformer, loose connection, or just the way it was built, although a loud buzz sounds like a problem waiting to happen to me.

No there is nothing to put in line to make it quit buzzing, I need to know all the information about the device, voltage, amps, brand, and then tell me how it is wired including number of wires, size of wires, voltage, how it is wired to what colors, how far from breaker, what breaker and size, and anything else that seemed unusual to you during install if anything.

Write me back here or allexperts.com or wbwill@sbcglobal.net.

check for dirt in the air gap that is formed between the electromagnet and the contact form. if there are any shading coils on the magnet check for a broken one.

Loud Knocking


If the noise is not coming from the fan as Buffalo suggests, it is most likely the expansion and contraction of the heat exchanger. The old school way to lessen the noise of expansion is to bank the combustion chamber with a hammer. I don't recommend it today because the metal is so thin (thus all the noise) and you may damage it. You will get used to it and the noise may soften the more it is used. You will never get it to stop.

Loud buzzing after heating up


the buzzing is normal.  there is an element inside the quartz tube much like a filament in a light bulb.  as this heats up it starts to move.  where you have electrical energy you also have magnetism produced. metal objects vibrate when they are in or within a magnetic field. the element is tungsten wire and vibrates off this magnetic field.
