Question about Air Conditioners

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.

I have a Carrier Weathermaker 8000 furnace. it will not light.I tested the igniter on my upstairs furnace and it will glow and light that furnace. I can manualy light the furnace with a match. flame sensor...


If you're sure the igniter is good and the controller is sending voltage to gas valve to open, but not to the igniter then, yes, the controller is bad. The only way to know for sure is to remove the igniter's molded plug from the board and test voltage directly at the board. You should get about 100-120 vac to the igniter.

Flame sensor dirty


Sandpaper lightly scrubbed over the sensor tip to remove any contamination.

Sometimes cleaning is not enough and the sensor must be replaced.

I have a Carrier Weathermaker 8000 VS furnace that intermittently has frozen up (the inducer blower stops spinning). Do I need to replace the blower or is there something else that can be done? What is the...


If you can get to the shaft of the motor, oil it using electric motor oil. If the motor spins freely, you just may need to replace the start capacitor, however if it is binding; you will need to replace the inducer as an assembly.

Weathermaker 8000 furnance flashing code 31 blower comes on for 90 sec .. then shuts off .. then other fan goes on.. don't see any flames or lighting goin on can you help?


31 PRESSURE SWITCH DID NOT CLOSE OR REOPENED - If open longer than five minutes,
inducer shuts off for 15 minutes before retry. Check for: - Excessive wind
- Proper vent sizing - Defective inducer motor
- Low inducer voltage (115VAC) - Defective pressure switch
- Inadequate combustion air supply - Disconnected or obstructed pressure tubing
- Low inlet gas pressure (if LGPS used) - Restricted vent
If it opens during blower on-delay period, blower will come on for the selected blower
off-delay.

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


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.
