Question about Carrier XHB123D X/Y Series Heat/Cool Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Carrier Natural Gas Furnace/Air Conditioner, Model 518CXX036000MBAA

Hi:

Hope you can help with this issue. The fan on my unit runs for hours after the heat turns off. It is an intermittent problem. Sometimes it shuts off, sometimes it doesn't.

First, I made sure the fan was set to auto on the thermostat. I checked the wiring on the thermostat and then replaced the thermostat, to no avail.

I did a little research and found out that my fan limit switch either needs to be adjusted, reset, or replaced. Problem is, I don't know where to look for the switch and I'm not even sure if I can reset or adjust it when I find it.

Thought I would give this a try before I call a pro to come fix it for $200.00 when it could have been something I could have easily taken care of.

Thanks for your anticipated assistance

Is this a package unit??? Or is it inside the home?? How old is the furnace. The first thing to do is axcess the fan and see if it is controlled by a computer or its old enough to have a fan switch. Trace the red wire from the fan mtr that should take you to the fan switch

    Its right in that age where it could either have a board or a regular switch.

Carrier air conditioner cycles on and off


The compressor/condenser is being called all the time. The reason it goes off is because the evaporator (indoors) freezes up when the fan is told to turn off by the thermostat. This further cooling lowers the low side pressure below the low limit switch point turning off the compressor unit.
Solution: Make sure the thermostat is wired correctly. Green wire is usually the compressor wire but maybe not.

Fan running but no heat


It could be the circuit board, relay, heat strip coil or limit. If you have the fan switch at the t-stat in auto and the fan is running constantly it's probably a high temp limit that tripped. Was your filter clean or dirty? If you had a dirty filter and/or A/C coil it will restrict air flow and cause the furnace to overheat.

Get it looked at quick, before your exchangers crack, because the furnace not cooling them down after operation will lead to failure, and the replacement is not cheap, close to the cost of a new unit.

Carrier air conditioner problem


My Carrier unit did the same thing. It was low on refrigerant (Puron in my unit). I am worried I have a leak somewhere. Hopefully, it is not in the coil. The service call wasn't cheap either. Puron runs around $10-15 a pound and mine took several pounds to replenish.

Model number for Carrier furnace with issue for blower 5 minute off delay


I believe that this model number is for an air conditioner evaporator coil. This unit is probably directly attached to your furnace. The Model number for the furnace will be located in the compartment where the flames can be seen. It will be on a sticker or plate that contains lots of other information too like BTU/h, Volts etc...


The number you gave me gives me this info:
Cased air conditioning evaporator coil.
3 Tons
Horizontal application

Fan continues to run after desired heat is established , I blew out the line at pilot and the unit is taking 10 to 15 mins for fan to cut off


Looks like your fan limit switch may be bad. It fits into the warm air side of the furnace. It tells the fan to come one and off when the heat is blowing over the limit switch. Now if that limit is defective it also will affect the lighting of your heater being it electronic ig-niter or just common thermocouple type controlled pilot light. Now above your post I think the wong information was given about your gas heater, so giving you the exact information will be difficult. Now from hearing you explanation of the problems, I hope my information was a help to you, Thanks Sea Breeze
