I need a Carrier Central air Manual


there should be a schematic on the blower door that tells you how to wire it. It is called IBM on the schematic.

Hot Air Furnace - How to Troubleshoot the Blower


The furnace is hot and every once in a while the burner will come on for a short time and then go off again. But the blower that should be running to circulate the hot air from the furnace to the house is not working. How can you fix that? It really isn’t very hard.

It does not matter what the fuel of your hot air furnace is. If the blower is not circulating the air through the heater then you are not getting warm. The function of the blower is to move the heat from the heater to the space that need to be heated.

A few simple tests can tell you what your problem is. Do you have power going to the motor that runs the blower? If you have power going to the motor and it is very hot than maybe the blower wheel has come lose and it is stuck on something that is keeping it from turning. Try to turn the wheel to see if it is stuck. If the wheel is not hitting anything and just turns hard then the bearings of the motor are bad and the motor needs to be replaced. In some rare cases the motor has little tubes to the bearings and some oil can be worked into the bearings to free them up. This is a long a tedious process, but I have done it successfully a few times.

If the wheel is hitting something, then try to see if it can be fixed. Sometimes the set screw will just come lose from the shaft and repositioning the wheel and tightening the screw will fix the problem.

Sometimes power will be going to the motor and nothing at all is happening. Replacing the motor is then the only option. The worst case that happens and is one of the most common problems is for the hub of the blower wheel to brake off. This lets the inside of the wheel fall down on the motor shaft. The metal from the wheel will saw off the shaft of the motor rather quickly as it is spinning trying to run the blower. The result of this is a ruined wheel and motor.

This gives a brief overview of some of the many things that may happen to your blower in your hot air furnace. I have encountered many other things over the years, but these are the most common problems. It will give you a few things to look for if you are having problems. Be very careful because many times the edges of the metal pieces are very sharp. You can be cut very easily when checking or handling these parts. I know and have the scars to prove it! Do not be in a hurry and be safe.

Outside unit works great, but inside fan unit\r\nwill not come on.


Hi, what you need to do, is pull the panel to get to the control board and blower motor. Take a look at the run capacitor mounted along side of the blower assembly to see if it is swollen or leaking oil. If so, replace it and try and start the motor. If its not to late if the run cap was bad, the motor will run. If its good, look on the board with a good light, look for the connections for the blower motor. Blower-1 and 2. You need to purchase a cheap electrical meter to check these leads for power when the outdoor unit is running. You can also kill power and see how hard it is to turn the wheel on the blower. If the motor has power to it, it is faulty. These will burn out if the air filter isn't changed on a regular basis, or they collect a lot of dust around the windings anyway causing them to over heat. Make sure this indoor unit doesn't have a door panel switch that kills power to the blower if its not on right or when you check it for power you will need to tape it down. More then likely, you have a bad motor. If you have no power to it, the control blower board is faulty. Please try and do these checks for me, and keep me posted. I will be here to help you solve this. Please be kind when you rate me, I thank you.

No heat and No blowing


Clogged lint filter, exhaust vent or outlet would reduce air flow but there would be some heating unless a high limit safety switch has tripped and needs to be reset.  There may be aa air flow switch that prevents the element from heating up if no air is flowing.  Blower wheel may have broken off at connection to motor shaft.

New motor runs but doesn't blow air through the registers


Is the blower wheel turning? Did you by chance have to remove the motor from the blower wheel to work on it? If you did, did you put the blower wheel back on in the correct direction of air flow? Also, did you put the correct capacitor back on the unit so it can get up to the required rpm's? These are things that you will need to check for. If the motor is running and the blower wheel isn't and the wheel is tight on the shaft, then you will have to replace the motor. The brushes may be bad on the unit and it's not turning the shaft. Hope these ideas help.

A miswire


The blower is smoking because you have it hooked up to the same wires you've hooked the electric coil to.  That coil runs on 240 volts.  Those wires are typically red and black.  The motor runs on 120.  One of the wires should be shifted to a neutral (white wire).  Assuming the motor is still alive...this will fix it.

Replacing squirrel cage blower


You have to take blower out by removing the 2 screws that is holding it ,then you loose the motor shaft from wheel by using a Allen key .Once motor shaft is loose you then loosen motor frame from housing and slide motor out .Might have to spray it with wd 40 .
On the housing should be some screws along the side so you loosen those and house ing would open up so you can get wheel out.
To install you reverse the process.
Please note the direction of the old wheel because if install backwards will not work right
