Furnace won't work because of a loose Inducer Motor Connector

The 3 circuit inducer motor connector is kind of loose. I have had some luck getting the furnace to fire by wiggling the connection, but now it seems to not be working. Is it okay for me to remove the control panel, to see if something is broken on the other side? What do you advise...it's a little cold out!! It is a Carrier Weathermaker 8000 model 58WAV091-14

Cut power to the system at the main disconnect.
Turn the gas off at the unit.

remove the panel, andsee if the stakon conection is intact. Chances are its just a loose connection from your description.

If the problem is not obviose, let us know what you did or did not find.

did you check the hose from the inducer to the pressure switch? HAVE you unplugged the unit from the wall outlet to reset the board? DO you have a voltmeter? If you do you can run voltage across the switch and if you get 24 volts you are open.

Hello, if the inducer motor is bad then the furnace will not continue further and work, it could be that the bearings are shot on the inducer or it has failed electricly. Best thing to do here is replace the inducer motor.

A couple of weeks ago my Goodman furnace went out. It happened to be a big snow storm here in Chicago. So I called my furnance repair co. that i usually use. They charged me $189.00 to come out to check...


Hi,
If the inducer fan is out of balance that badly, then you will need to replace the inducer anyway....it will shake its self apart....
Me I would have fixed the wire and then ordered a new inducer right a way and then installed it in a few days when it arrived...in is trouble waiting to happen...
Put the wire back on and get a new inducer coming...

Furnace will not ignite. Inducer motor and blower motor kick on at the same time. Safety switches have been checked. Circuit board and igniter assembly is good.


what brand furnace is it? is there any blinking light on the control board? is the tube going to the pressure switch blocked? there should be a tube going from the pressureswitch to the inducer motor housing take it loose from the inducer and check for obstruction there,dont blow back into the switch.

Where does the 3 prong inducer plug into? Carrier Weathermaker Model 58SXAO80-GG Serial 1490A02296


Hi, it would either plug into the circuit board/control board, or have a connector of the same, either male or female it would plug directly into. This is a 120 volt inducer motor. Look for the other end of the plastic plug.

Inducer motor fan won come on


Check to see if theres power getting to the inducer motor, also check for loose or damaged wiring. If theres power the motor is bad. If not check the air flow switch, usually a disk shape with a silicone hose attached and two wires... take the hose from the furnace and blow into it and test to see if theres continuity, this switch is normally open and when you blow the switch closes. This is to make sure that the main blower is running so the combustion chamber doesnt burn up (and your house). Make sure your air filter is clean! If the switch is operational it could be the relay that controls the inducer motor, on newer models the relay is on the control board, check for error codes... try these things and if that doesnt work call your local furnace repairman!

Bryant furnance clicking, won't fire


try checking the pressure sensing switch,it has a tube that should run somewhere close to the inducer fan.sometimes this hose fills with liquids,and makes the units act funny.I don't know if you have a condensing unit or what.the furnace wont try to light if it cant tell the inducer motor is running.any induced draft unit will work this way.you can also do a temp. bypass of the pressure switch to make sure the contacts on it are closing just be sure your inducer fan is running,and you cant leave it like that its just a test.that is a safety feature you really need.
