SOURCE: problem with furnace, air but no heat

the hot serface igniter may nead to be replaced again . if the is a lack of air
[ have this checked} getting to and frome the furnace it may be causing the furnace to cycle off the burner duing call for heat. it recycles back on and off untill the thermostat is saticfied. this means you are reusing the igniter more often the once a call for heat . therefore shorening it life expectancy.. make shure you are not blocking the air flows with over filtering ..whitch i have found to be the most common mistake . this and not changing or cleaning air filters often enough.

SOURCE: 3 amp fuse blows on a carrier 58mcb furnace board

Hi!!! Does your ac unit work fine?If not check your low voltage problem..You have a low voltage problem check the wire going out to your condensor make sure that they are not touching..Good luck..Check low voltage wires..short in progress..

SOURCE: Carrier Furnace is not blowing Heat

heres the manual for the unit, look at pages 46-47 and theres a trouble shooting ladder schematic that asks what the systums are then gives the solutions for the fix. if you are still having problems you can request to talk to me and I'll be more than happy to help.

SOURCE: CARRIER AIR CONDITIONER/HEAT PUMP PROBLEM WOULD

what I have always been told is if your 24 volt side burns out check the high volt side if the hi volt side burns out check the low volt side.

A quick way if the primary side is burningout due to a problem with the low volt side:
1 MArk all the thermostat wires at the indoor unit
2 Disconnect them at the indoor unit.
3 Check main line voltage before proceeding (A 208 volt is not considered 220V and 240v Is not considered 208V> In these circumstances the voltage may have changed with the power company replacing a transformer and now you need to change the main power input lines at your control transformer for the correct operating voltage). If okj then proceed:

4 If you have an amp meter attach it to one of the lines going to the transformer.
5 Apply main power and listen for hum, note if smell starts again and if so problem has to be in board or main incoming voltage too high or too low. Amp draw should be less than 3 amps.
6 If your to this point and still havent found any trouble in the above as of yet, Connect the wire marked "C" together. Then just touch the thermostat wires one at a time to the places where they go on the indoor unit and watch the amp meter. If you donmt see the meter jump the circut is probably ok but leave them disconnected until you touch all of them to the correct place or wire. Here is a possible problem I ahve seen a thermostat wireing problem if the wires are stripped too far and a "whisker" of the wire sticks out and allowes one of the other wires to cross short out. In this case just cut off the excess wire or bend it over out of the way asnd continue with the test. You can always cut it off later after the tests. If you see the meter jump up and stay up and /or blowes the fuse the wire that you used and it blew is where to consentrate.
7 No wiring problem found means that you could have a relay or contactor not pulling in properly.
and this will cause the amp draw to go way over the transformers power out put or VA rating.
8 Inspect the thermostat wiring for the "whisker" I mentioned above.
9 If you have done this to the end of the thermostat wires and your main incomming voltage is correctly wired in on the transformer andf your relays and contactors are pulling in evenly and not delaying excessively your problem should be fixed.

If this helps you please rate me as high as you can and thank you for using fixya.

SOURCE: 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.

Basic Furnace or Heating System Troubleshooting


If you are not getting any response from your furnace and your furnace is not working, then the first thing you want to check is that there is power coming in.

If you have 120VAC coming in, then check to see if you have 24VAC coming from the transformer. If you do not have the 24VAC from the low voltage transformer then the transformer has burnt out. Power surges and especially brown outs (low voltage) can cause the transformer to burn out.

If there is 24VAC coming from the transformer secondary then check to see if there is a fuse in the low voltage circuit. Sometimes the fuse on the circuit board and often are an automotive type fuse that plugs into the circuit board. Sometimes the fuse will be an inline fuse that will be in a black round tube type holder. If the fuse is blown do not replace with a higher amperage fuse, you will cause more damage, or blow the transformer.

If the fuse is blown then unhook the t-stat wires and check again. This will tell you if the short that blows the fuse is external to the furnace or internal.

Now if all of that checks out then the next thing would be to check the low voltage safety circuit. Things such as door switches and high limit switches are all possibly included in this circuit, if any of them are open the heating system will not work.

As a last resort, the problem could be in the circuit board. They do go bad and can shut everything down also. Most circuit boards will also flash a LED light to give you a code for what is wrong and why the furnace is not working.
Count the number of flashes and then check the inside of the front cover to see what the code represents.

This will give you a basic progression of things that you can check through. Using an electrical meter is essential to being able to diagnose and troubleshoot the heating system. If you do not have one and/or do not know how to use an electric meter proficiently, then find someone to help you that does know how to use one well to help you.

How do you wire a transformer on a carrier unit?


depends if gas or electric on gas u have 120 volts if u have a universal transformer u will hve several wires and on the transformer it will say 120one color 240 another color and common is one color hook black wire to 120 wire and common to ur white wire from unit and ur 2 low voltage wires dont matter if it is electric use the 240 wire and common wire wires from unit dont mater just use the same 2 wires u unhookes and low voltage wires dont matter best advice is to put a 3 amp fuse inline on the low voltage side cause something caused the ransformer to go out and its probably a shorted wire this will blow the fuse instead of burning up the transformer

I have a carrier furnace, humidifier valve popped fuse


hook up the new transformer to the white (common) from the blower motor, and the lead from the blower motor hooked up to the heat term on the board. (just cut the wires and wire nut all three together)

Control suplimental system with carrier infinty system


Not really unless it is 24v control on the new stuff. However it is you can use the voltage from white (or W) at the tstat. You will be using the power supply of the carrier furnace. install a 3 amp fuse. and be prepare to replace the fuse in furnace while testing . The most you can get on those transformers is about 10 mpers @ 24v.

Carrier Gas Furnace


There is no pilot light, its electronic start now.
like your stove should be.
you can trigger the furnace by shorting out the correct combo on the thermostat but not advised unless you know the right ones.
be sure the power is on the the transformer that provides power to the thermostat.
though that may be contained within the furnace now days.
just check your fuse box and call a tech.
