SOURCE: blower does not turn on bottom squirrl cage carrier weathermaker

Sounds like it to me. You might be able to switch the motor speeds by taking the red wire off the heat spot on the board and taking the one that is on the park and switching them. But more then likely the blower is bad replace the capacitor at the same time.

You could take the black wire and switching with red or what ever color is on the heat spot. The black wire is on the cool spot so just switch those two. ken

SOURCE: Carrier Weathermaker 8000 ignitor won't glow...

Hi, If you can take a good light and just look at the glow end of the hot surface ignitor, 95% of the time you will be able to see where the break is on the glow surface. If you have excess to a electrical meter, you would unplug the hot surface ignitor, that is the correct name for it and set the meter for continuity. Touch each lead from meter to each wire and you will show a reading of some kind if it is good, and nothing if it is open or burned out. If you are lighting it by hand (dangerous) it shows that the inducer motor, flame sensor, and main gas valve are in good shape. I know when its cold you have to do what it takes. If the main controller which may be a control circuit board with a red led light on it, or it may be a blue, or gray, white control box with wiring going to it with markings such as TH, TR, C, MGV, PV, Ect. on it and would be right where you are working to light the pilot manually. If it runs when you light it by hand, the control box is good or it would lock out when you would light it. Check out that hot surface ignitor/ glow plug. The part number is imprinted on it. It is either a 120 volt or may be 24 volt hot surface ignitor as some models have one or the other. A tip when installing the new one. Do not touch the surface end that glows with your fingers in anyway, as the oil from your fingers will cause it to burn in half! What happens to these hot surface ignitor is dust settles on them over time and causes them to burn in have or a crack in them. Rheem and Ruud units came out with there's mounted in a horizontal position and they kept burning out fast as dust would build fast. They finally come up with a bracket to mount it in a vertical position and solved this problem. Anyway, unplug it, pull it out and inspect it very good for any signs of a tiny crack or what ever. Ohm it out if you have a meter. You can buy one at a appliance parts house and they are very reasonable. Please keep me posted on what you find. I will be here for help. I wish you the best as I know you can do this.
Sincerely,
Shastalaker7

Carrier Weathermaker 9200 Gas Furnace Error Code 31


A month or so ago, I woke up to discover that I had no heat in my house. I went to the furnace to do a diagnostic check, removed the service door and quickly discovered that there was no flame (visible through the glass peep-hole).

I followed the manufacturer's shut-off procedure, which can be found in the manual, here: http://legalectric.org/f/2011/03/carrier-9200-weathermaker-uhe-om58-67.pdf. When I turned the furnace back on, I saw that the igniter did not glow (should be visible through the same peep-hole - should look like a red-hot, 2-prong tuning fork) and that the red LED error code indicator (visible through the lower peep-hole) was blinking 3 short flashes and 1 long flash (error code 31).

Now what I SHOULD HAVE done was check the pressure switch first (see service manual pg. 3, component #16). By removing the rubber lines that connect tot the pressure switch, one end at a time and both at the pressure switch and the bottom of the igniter box, you may notice some debris in the lines or the male adapters on the pressure switch or igniter box. If you do, clear out the debris with a paper clip (don't insert the paper clip into the body of the pressure switch, though). After checking all connections for debris, disconnect the hose that connects to the top of the pressure switch at the "T" between the pressure switch and the igniter box and blow/suck air in and out of the pressure switch (lightly). If you hear a small click when you pass air in and out, that's the pressure switch functioning. If you hear crackling or you can't blow in/out easily, you probably have a bad pressure switch.

if you are able to make the pressure switch click, connect all lines and start up the furnace per the mfg recommendations. If the furnace kicks on, it was probably a blockage in the pressure switch lines (likely if you found gunk in the lines or male adaptors on the pressure switch), but it may still be a faulty pressure switch (my problem... when I blew in and out to the pressure switch, I could hear the silicone diaphragm cracking). I got mine going, albeit temporarily, by removing the pressure switch and passing air in and out (blowing pretty hard) with my lips on the bottom hose adapter until I could hear the diaphragm crackle free and it became easier to make it click on and off. That only bought me a few days, though. After that, I bought a replacement pressure switch at a plumbing supply place and replaced the old one. If you found gunk in the lines, I would suggest you have your furnace serviced and let the tech know what you found and where.

If neither procedure fixes the problem, it may be the igniter. For some odd reason, this issue started for me about a month ago and I replaced the igniter (YouTube video instructions are easy to find), which fixed the problem. If even that doesn't work, call a local tech, shut the gas off and wait around in some thick blankets! I hope this helped!
