If it is less than 10 yrs old i think it would have a hot surface ignitor near flame tubes that getts cherry red than gas opens and flames start. these break easily. you should be able to take a small mirror and look at it if it is broken or has a crack replace it. if it is a spark ignition system call out a tech.
Thanks,
Brian

When the thermostat calls for heat sometimes the gas pack works fine and sometimes it doesnt work at all . the inducer motor comes on but the burners dont ignite . what could be the problem ?


Could be the igniter or the thermocouple. The blower has to start first and it does but it will run on endlessly without further action unless the igniter heats the thermocouple to open the gas valve and fire the burner.

Carrier 48sx gas pack. Won't turn on. No smell. No igniting sound. Blower fan works. How do I troubleshoot this?


Remove the panel from the heater section, you will need to watch what happends as there is a call for heat. There may be a light on the control board that lights up or blinks to indicate a call for heat. The inducer blower (exhaust blower) will start. INn a few seconds after the blower starts, the igniter will glow orange. After a few more seconds the gas valve should open and the burner will ignite. If the inducer does not run, you may have a bad motor or control board. If the igniter does not glow, you could have a bad pressure switch, bad pressure switch hose or a broken igniter. If the gas valve does not open, you may have a bad control board or bad gas valve. If you get no light on control board, bad fuse, bad thermostat or bad control board.

Hi, to tell if your unit is a heat-pump or not, if the indoor unit is not gas fired, it is a split system heat pump. If it uses gas or propane gas, its a split system gas/elect unit. Look at your thermostat also. It should have aux heat, emergency heat on it also. Maybe not both, but you will know if you have a heat pump. Please don't forget to rate me. Please be kind, as I know you will. Just remember, no gas, its a heat pump, gas fired furnace indoors, its not a heat pump.

Hi, I have a Carrier Weathermaster XS. I don't


If I am correct, that is a gas furnace, right? I believe it may be between 15 and 20 years. Pro-active with and older gas furnace is never a bad thing. First of all it can become a safety issue, as concerns of heat exchangers cracking and leaking carbon monoxide into the home become increasing. Second, it sure only be 80% efficient, whereas a new condensing furnace today can be up to 95% efficient. That means that you currently only use 80% of the gas you are burning as actual heat transferred into the house via airflow, and the other 20% is literally leaving the house through the flue. So you can increase efficiency dramatically and be safe at the same time by replacing pro-actively

Carrier Gas Furnace runs fine randomly stops blowing LEDs flash


That blinking light may be the diagnostic light. Count the blinks next time it fails. Carrier units will have two different blinks depicting the error code such as one blink followed by a pause than 3 blinks giving you an error code of 13. Then look at the wiring diagram, it will have an error code chart telling you where to start with your diagnosis. You already know that if you remove the cover it erases the error code, so look thru the small window first.

Carrier Natural Gas Pack: Smell & Soot on exhaust tube


Time for a good cleaning. Make sure the heat exchanger is in good shape and is getting good heat flow over it to the exhaust. The odor may be an indication of a restriction in the heat exchanger, the flames are hitting something, improper air or gas adjustment or a blower not coming up to correct speed. You can access the heating unit from a side panel. Look for the exhaust port and start with that panel. Wasps nests are predominant in these things.

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
