Code 32 when wind blows

Carrier Weathermaker 8000 2 speed:

Sets code 32 when the wind blows.
I have to shut off thermostat, then shut off circuit breaker to furnace.
Then turn circuit breaker back on, then reset thermostat.
Furnace runs until code 32 sets again.
Could set code within 1 minute or 3 hours - depends on wind condition.
New filter has no effect on problem.
Has been going on for last 3 heating seasons.
Furnace is 8 years old and has been serviced for other concerns.
Furnace is in garage.
4 inch flue running 30 degrees upward about 7 feet to vertical flu.
3 inch water heater flu ties in with furnace flu about 5 feet from furnace.
Cap on flu up on roof is open 360 degrees

Hi and welcome to Fixya. I believe that the wind is affecting the draft. What I would recommend is to install a cap on the flue that is similar to a weather vane in that it rotates to block the wind from creating a downdraft in the flue. Some times depending on the direction and strength of the wind it will come up over the roof peak and then down the flue. A regular fixed cap may work too. You should be able to purchase one at your local hardware store. Please let me know if this was helpful. Good luck.

Heat exchanger replacement for carrier weathermaker 8000


After 18 years of service, it is not cost effective to just replace the heat exchanger. Go the complete replacement route. There may be a utility company incentive to do it.

Carrier Weathermaker 8000 error code 32


Hi, if its blinking 3 fast and 2 slow and saying the error is the pressure switch, kill the power. Pull the hose loose from the inducer motor to the switch and blow back and forth. You can hear the single pole contact click open and close. Put it back together and try it again. If it continues, check for any leaks in the air lines first, and if not, replace the switch. You would be better off to order one over the Internet.For a temp. fix only, if the switch contacts are welded shut or open, you can bypass this safety by taking a piece of electrical wire with clips on each end, and jump across the 2 wires. Some have 3 just find the 2 that makes it work. Good luck,

My Carrier Weathermaker 8000 a few days ago the air began to blow non stop and the burners are not igniting. I am getting Code 33. I did all the resets, unplug control board, switch to air condition...


You need to look at the wiring diagram pasted on the door panel to get a starting point where to look. I suspect a bad pressure switch, jump it out and see if it starts.

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.

Carrier Weathermaker 8000 turns off intermittently


You can find what the error code is by looking on the inside of the bloewr panel. If it is still there after all these years there is a code list right around the wiring diagram. If my memory serves me correctly it is a limit problem. But be for sure and check the code sheet.

I have a Carrier Weathermaker SXi. Furnance will not turn on. I shut power off and waited ten minutes and tried to restart. Codes flashing are 12, 31, 32, 33, 41, 42. Can this be started in emergency mode?


Emergency heat is made for this kind of situation.So yes you can.
now for the codes.
code 12= Blower on after power up
code 31=High heat pressure switch or relay didn't close or reopened
code 32=Low heat pressure switch or relay didn't close or reopened
code 33=limit circuit fault(Flame rollout switch is open)
code 41=board fault
code 42=control lockout

Thermostat transformer 3amp fuse blows on carrier weathermaker 8000


I have the same problem with my Goodman compressor. I removed the relay so the wires that control the relay on the compressor are open circuit. They are, and the fuse no longer blows. There must be something wrong with the relay. The resistance on the 24 volt coil seems a little low, but it is not a dead short. I thought the wires might be shorted, but removing the relay would not have fixed the blowing fuse if that was the problem.
