Re: Carrier Weathermaker SX

If you are running it in the cooling function, your drain maybe backed up. Find your drain outside if you can and suck it with a shop vac.

I have a Carrier Weathermaker SX HVAC unit with a Honeywell thermostat. Even if the thermostat is turned "off", my fan keeps blowing!

Hello, usually this is a sign of a bad blower relay on the intergrated control board. The only option is to replace the control board.

Carrier weathermaker sx (model 58sx040-cc power vent motor and gas velve cylanoid are kicking in and out, do you know what i can do to fix this problem ??

I believe this is the furnace with a spark to light the pilot light. If so the best advice I can give is to replace the whole pilot assembly. There is a very old style flame sensor in there that is not serviceable. This has driven many a technician around the bend.

**NOTE: It is a real pain to get out, and back in. You need to take off the fire box cover and the panel underneath it to get it out. You also need to take the pilot tube off the gas valve. This may be something that you want to call a service tech for. It could be a little tricky and because you are dealing with gas, you want to make sure that it is put together correctly and safely.

The pilot does not light in the furnace

I assume that this is a rather old unit if it still has a pilot light. If the pilot will not stay lit, genrally the thermocouple is the culprit, however it could be the gas valve as well.

Carrier Weathermaker SX (model 58SX100)

There is a small tube that comes off the inducer for cracks or water. If there are cracks then the pressure switch that it is attached to may not be closing all of the time. Also sometimes you can get water in that tubing which will also cause the pressure switch to not close. If thats the case shorten the tube so there is no low droop in it where water can collect. Another thing that I would do is disconnect the tube at the indicer, take a straightened out paper clip or stiff wire and poke it in the nipple on the inducer to make sure it is clear too. Let me know if any of these work. There may be other things we can do.

Carrier Weathermaker SX model 58SX060-CC Blower runs all the time

Remove all power from the furnace, it is likely the brain in the furnace is need of being reset, from the battery replacement, why did you change the battery, was there an indicator telling you to change it?

Many times just removing all the power to the furnace will do the trick with a reset, if not let me know and we will go from there, but it sounds like the main brain is confused or bad, more likely confused, so try the power removed first.

Than let me know

It sounds like your drain line may be partially plugged. Some times a small insect will get in there and cause a partial obstruction. IF the line is clear and the water continues to drip over the sides then make sure the unit is balanced So that the water will flow to the drain and not out the back.

Your blower motor may have failed. Check the blower motor for the air circulation and you may find it is hot but not running. Have the motor replaced if this is the case.

Carrier weathermaker sx 58 furnace

I have serviced these furnaces for 20 years and I can tell you most of these models did not have diagnostic lite on them. (although some did, especially if the control board has been replaced) The problem is most likely a bad 3 wire pilot. This will cause exactly what you describe. 2 things to consider though. 1, If you were to replace the pilot don't get a cheaper knockoff. In my experience these do not last long at all. Get the right one from a carrier dealer. It will cost more but be much more reliable. 2 What is the condition of the secondary heat exchanger? Most if not all of the sx series had issues with the secondary heat exchangers rotting out and leaking. If the furnace is out of warranty you would be much better replacing the furnace as the cost of replacing the secondary heat exchanger will probably be almost the same as a new furnace. ( those babies are EXPENSIVE!)
