Question about Carrier Refrigerators

1 Answer

My Carrier 58STA quit. I killed the power and then started it after a minute or so. It started working fine after that. It worked fine for another 2 1/2 days and then it repeated the process.

The unit would stop responding to the Thermostat. I would kill the power and then turn it back on. After a few minutes it would kick on like nothing was wrong. It has seemingly been on a 2 1/2 day cycle of working well and then quite. I'll then kill the power and kick it back on and it starts working again. Thoughts? Thanks for your help.

This sounds to be a tricky kinda sensor fault , that's shutting it off , this is why it restarts when pwr is reset (resets safety shutdown) also this model is known to have control board faults due to control board being mounted right on blower housing (vibration) id have a tech ck it out they should be able to see if its a flame sense sensor or contrl board error

Carrier 58sta/stx inducer moter not receiving power. The blower turns on. Its giving me a code 31 error. Any help is apreciated.

Code 31 is a pressure failure...

Hello JT Beltran,

Cyber-"wisdom" has it as a PRESSURE SWITCH FAILURE
(not closed)...
((DON'T short past it... unless you know what you are doing)).

Usually reserved for heaters with really filthy ... heavily clogged FILTERS... or blocked duct work (too many closed vents)

Once you have eliminated the obvious fire hazards of blocked AIR circulation, checked your filter is INDEED CLEAN &
unobstructed...YOU HAVE the (un-likely) faulty pressure switch...

Hope this helps.

Have a Poulan PR208 Stormforce snowblower that quits after 2 or 3 minutes.

Chcek stuck or loose choke flaps and integrity of carb manifold gasket. Check the ignition coil cable (connected to the spark plug). The kill switch wires should not any crack that may touch the chassis ground.

Carrier 58STA/STX furnace false starts even when off or temperature set lower than current.

Is it possible the drain is plugged? The newer furnaces have a moisture drain and will shut down if they are blocked., shutting them down and restarting will reset fault, but will come right back if not fixed.

Carrier 58STA furnace code 33, no ignition blower stays on. I have a Carrier 58STA furnace. It's getting a code 33 and never trying to ignite. The blower constantly stays on. It is pushing good air...

33 is a limit switch open take your furnace doors off and there should be a wiring diagram. on this furnace the blower will run if this is open. check rool out swict and linits. it sounds like you have a problem with over heating. how does the fire look ? is the vent blocked ? things like that i think page 9 has falt codes

My carrier 58sta furncace is blowing cold air constantly

Code 33 is "limit is open or flame switch is open"
FIRST make sure the filter is clean. Turn off unit then turn back on.
if it works but then later gives you a 33 code then you might have a dirty a/c coil (if you have a/c) that will cause the limit to open. 1st try that

Carrier thermostat reading stuck on 50 but doesn't work

If it is Carrier tstat. Some have resets other dont. Kill power to insid unit. WAit five minutes turn back on. If it has batteries take them out. But the storm may have damaged the tstat. I had a thunderstorm damage 11 tstats in one building. You can buy a tsta at Home depot that will work and they are easy to wire. Just make sure you get the coorect tstat. If the unit is straight cool electric thats the easy one. A heat pump you need a Tsta with two stage heat one stage cool. You can pick one up for about 25 to 30 dollars. Please call back for more help be glad to assist.Rusty

No air in two rooms?

without replacing duct size you may damper down the airflow on the vents that have more air by closing them or taking the grill down and blocking them with an insulation type material.
