Question about Heating & Cooling

Open Question

The LED on my carrier 48GS/GX blinks 6 times, indecating a problem with the draft motor however it seems ok. Can you help?

The LED blinks 6 times but the ICG motor seems to be running ok. There is a small cap on the back of the IGC motor with 3 wires comming out and plugging into the circut board. I assume this checks the motor RPM. Could this be the problem?

Blank screen sounds like a fried thermosat. Abrupt outages can affect certain types of thermostats. Make a jumper wire and jump across R and G. See if you get any action from anywhere. If a fan or compressor kicks in you know you have a burned out thermosat...

Juno out the switch and see if the unit fires. You may have more than one. Check the wiring diagram for sure.

SOURCE: carrier 8000. call for heat but inducer motor

Where I live you had to be a franchised carrier dealer to sell carrier units. I did not have a large enough business to qualify so I'm not an expert on their units. However one of my best friends is a service tech for carrier and honeywell and I called him and he told me they had some bad control boardson that series. Unfortunatley there is no repair other than replacing the board. Sorry I'm not more help but this was all I could find. Thank you

Rheem Classic 90 FURNACE. Blower motor constantly running, even if t-stat is removed. Led blinks four times. PS closed, is the code. Not a psycho problem, I think it is the voltage transformer.

An LED that blinks four times followed by a two-second pause is signaling the pressure switch is closed when it should be open. The switch itself might be stuck, or the tubing that attaches the switch to the furnace's draft inducer might be blocked

Rheem furnace codes

Stuck pressure switch. Try removing small tube at inducer draft motor and pressure switch, located in the heating compartment, and making sure line is clear. Also try cleaning out small nipple on draft motor assy. with a small wire or paper clip as these get clogged easily too. You can also hook the small tubing to the pressure switch and blow and suck in and you should hear the switch opening and closing. The draft motor running is what causes the negative pressure to pull in that switch. Any debris or clogged with stop operations. Also make sure the flue is unrestricted if that doesn\'t fix it. Hope this helps. Happy Holidays!

I have a Payne furnance, yesterday it stop giving up heat but give out only cold air. The led sensor light blinks 3 times slow pause in between and fast 3 times after. What do I need to fix this furnance...

Hello, it sounds like the pressure switch is not closing on your furnace and remaining open, reasons for this could be a blocked flue pipe, the tubing going from the inducer motor to pressure switch could be blocked, loose, or have condensation in it, or the switch itself is bad. U can check the tubing by taking it off blowing some air through it and making sure no condensation is in the tubing, then reinstall it. If everything checks out good then the pressure switch is bad and must be replaced.

Induced Draft Blower Not Blowing- 3 Blinks on LED

Your doing well just right. When the call for heat is on the draft motor gets a call from the board to come on. When this happens if no voltage is present at the motor then you ahve abad baord. Replace it.

Need to know were purple brown and yellow wire off cumbustion motor hook back up to compasetor and circuit board on a carrier 48gs 03609 0301

take off the door panel and look to the inside. It will have a wiring diagram, legend, and color codes for the wires. The combustion motor or inducer fan should be small enough that it doesnt need a capacitor. The indoor fan motor or squirrel cage does.

Pressure, draft safeguard, or aux limit swtch did not close or re

The limit switches are two wires that go to a small disk about the size of a dime. There should be a tiny button between the wires. Find all the limits and push them to reset them. The draft safeguard is the one that is located where the flu pipe leaves the unit. Sometimes the limits are stubborn and it's hard to push them in. If you can't get it reset then the limit will need to be replaced but it can be bypassed temporarily by jumping the two wire together. Do no do this as a permanent fix. It can cause death.
