FURNACE MAKING LOUD NOISES

My Carrier furnace started making a very loud whirring noise. I shut it off, and after the burners went off, the noise went away (the blower was still going). I waited a few minutes and turned it back on. Once the burners started going, the loud noise came back but was intermittent. My dad listened over the phone and thought it was a belt slipping?? Any ideas? I'd appreciate any help as it's cold tonight and it's not possible to turn back on due to the nosie!!

Thanks!

    Before I could figure out where the noise was coming from, I thought an 18 wheeler was parked out front back firing. When I went to the front door, there were no trucks, so I realized it was upstairs in my attic. It woke my whole family up at 5 Am. My husband turned it off and we've called a repairman. We also smelled a burning smell, not gas, not electrical...Like the first time you turn on the heater for the first time during the fall.

My weathermaker started making a screeching noise and intermittantly would shut down, without blowing any heat. I found the sediment trap clogged and the induction motor was churning through the backed up condensation water. This slowed the motor down and the pressure switch would not stay closed. Unclogging the trap and hoses solved the problem. A bunch of water came out when I disconnected the collector box drain hose, along with gobs of sticky crud. Works great and is quiet now.

Hello, if the line is freezing there is either a airflow problem or low refrigerant charge. If there is a loud noise most likey the bearings on the motor or the blower wheel is bad and causing a lower amount of air passing over the evaporator coil and thus the freezing of the suction line.

We have a Surburban 10 gallon hot water tank in our RV. Today it started making popping noises. The burner keeps back firing and making loud popping/banging noises.


The burner tube is restricted. Try blowing the tube out with compressed air or cleaning the tube out with a small wire.

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 installed a ton of Kelvinator furnaces. I have NEVER heard a loud one. The installer should cooperate. Call your building inspector. I bet this guy did not even pull a permit. If it is the burners that are loud then have your gas pressure checked in the furnace. Do you have a noisy induced draft motor. If so replace it.... you are under warranty.
Start calling your installer every night at 3 am. Call him every time you walk by a phone. He will get the hint. You need to as loud to him, as your furnace is to you.
Call Kelvinator... you can get the number on line. tell them about your problem they do not want bad advertisement. they will find someone to solve your problem.
Good luck....

Check the vacume in your inducer motor. Ensure it is pulling at least -9. If you don't have the equipment, you'll have to wait till it has a problem. Or, pay a tech to come out and service your system, with particular attention to the inducer fan..

Carrier 58mvp furnace ecm motor is making viberating noises


ecms are pretty reliable and electronic failure is much more common than bearing or bushing wearout. i suspect the fins on the blower may be coming loose from their pressed on spline and that will start a vibration or shimmy or you could have thrown a weight that balanced the wheel . best to use to warranty to get a new wheel. good luck

HEATER MAKING LOUD NOISES


Check the draft inducer motor for any partial blockages or dibri.

I've seen sticks, birds nest particles and pieces of deteriorating fan blades (squirrel cage type fans) cause this.

You might also find that the inducer motors bearing are going.

If its a loud vibrating grinding type noise, I'd suspect bearings or missing pieces of the blades. (unbalanced)
If it's a clanking type noise I'd suspect loose items hitting the fan.

The inducer motor will only operate right before and during burner operation, while the blower motor can operate at any time depending on your setting.

Turning on the heat makes a loud noise then i turn it off and just run the fan no noise


This sounds like an oil burner, which would mean your getting an oil biuld up in the fire chamber when the burner fires up. If it is a gas furnace you need to ajust the air flow.
