Code 31 indicates pressure switch did not close or reopened during the heat cycle....1st thing to check is the inducer motor,,this is a small motor that turns a small blower wheel that draws the exhaust gases through the furnace and blows them into the vent pipe....1st locate the inducer assembly,,most easily identified by the small plastic fan blade that cools the inducer motor as it runs..1st turn off tstat and turn off furnace power switch..then turn on furnace switch,then set tstat to heat,set the temp above room temp by 5 degrees...remove the furnace front cover,locate the inducer motor,,if it isnt turning,but is warm or hot after a minute or so,likely the inducer motor is bad..if it isnt turning and isnt warm after 1 minute,then likely the main control board is bad,,not turning the inducer motor when it should,,,,,if the inducer motor is running,,then the pressure switch isnt closing,, could be a bad pressure switch but more likely there is a problem with the venting...some possible problems that would cause the pressure switch not to close in an 80% eff furnace [metal vent pipe] are: [1] a blockage in the vent pipe,base of chimney,dead bird at the furnace where vent connects to furnace or down inside the inducer assy,accessed by removing vent pipe from furnace....if all clear the chimney could be blocked up inside,,is the draft good when vent is removed from base of chimney?..if furnace is a 90%+ type [pvc plastic vent pipe],,then check the intake pipe at the furnace by removing it where it attaches to top of furnace..is the intake clogged with anything?..then check the intake and exhaust pipes outside for blockages,,including ice/frost/snow at the exhaust pipe outlet..

    This is a very common reason for a service call, the induced draft assembly has a port for the tubing to the induced drafts proving switch, if this tiny port is not cleared yearly it will build up with carbon and inhibit or stop the "sensing" of the induced draft motors operation.

When the thermostat calls for heat sometimes the gas pack works fine and sometimes it doesnt work at all . the inducer motor comes on but the burners dont ignite . what could be the problem ?


Could be the igniter or the thermocouple. The blower has to start first and it does but it will run on endlessly without further action unless the igniter heats the thermocouple to open the gas valve and fire the burner.

Low side running high and not cooling very well This is a carrier gas pack, 16 years old


I would suspect unit needs thorough cleaning. I would check and make sure that the heat is not running with the air conditioning. It could also possible the load is heavier than usual. How do you know the low side is running high? Did you use a temperature pressure chart or just guess.

Carrier Gas Furnace runs fine randomly stops blowing LEDs flash


That blinking light may be the diagnostic light. Count the blinks next time it fails. Carrier units will have two different blinks depicting the error code such as one blink followed by a pause than 3 blinks giving you an error code of 13. Then look at the wiring diagram, it will have an error code chart telling you where to start with your diagnosis. You already know that if you remove the cover it erases the error code, so look thru the small window first.

carrier gas furnaces will try to light three times then will usually go on a lockout for one hour you can bypass the lock out by resetting the power, turn furnace on, remove wires from gas valve, you will need a multi meter to check for voltage to valve, if control board sends a call to the gas valve the valve is bad, if voltage is never present during the lighting cycle your control board is bad

Carrier Natural Gas Pack: Smell & Soot on exhaust tube


Time for a good cleaning. Make sure the heat exchanger is in good shape and is getting good heat flow over it to the exhaust. The odor may be an indication of a restriction in the heat exchanger, the flames are hitting something, improper air or gas adjustment or a blower not coming up to correct speed. You can access the heating unit from a side panel. Look for the exhaust port and start with that panel. Wasps nests are predominant in these things.

Gas not coming on Carrier Weather Maker 8000


either the gas valve is not opening or your not getting gas to the furnace.  also the gas valve won't open unless the draft motor comes on.  if the ignitor is trying to light, but there's no gas, it might be a bad gas valve. i would call your closest NATE certified contractor
