Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I have a Carrier weathermaker 8000 furnace that has a loose Inducer Motor connector at the board. My furnace would fire when I wiggled the connector, but know that won't work. Is it possible for me to remove the panel, to see if something is broken or disconnected?

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.

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.
