Question about Carrier Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

My Carrier 58WAV136 forced air heater's problem is as follows - Thermostat works fine, when desired temp is reached, the fan motor (blower) kicks on. Sometimes it stays blowing for a couple of seconds, sometimes a minute. Often, the electric heating element will heat up and the gas furnace will light. But, the system will shut itself off within a few seconds and will try all over again. The LED sensor will blink 3 times fast, then one time. I do not have the manual to look this info up. Thanks for your help

There should be a code list inside the furnace panel access door. Find it and see what code 41 says, as I can't remember right off hand. Some of the possible causes could be air in gas line or low gas pressure. Could have blocked vent especialy if vented with plastic. Check for bird nest or dirt dobbers in vent. If vented with plastic could not have proper rise 1/4 per foot and have water trapped in pipe blocking vent. Is this a new problem or has this occured since installation?

Pilot and burner light then gas shut off model 7900


How many degrees before it reaches desired temp, does it shut off? A thermostat is designed to shut the furnace off a couple/ few degrees before it reaches set temp. It has what is called a heat anticipater, which shuts the burner down, and lets the blower use the remaining heat from the heat exchanger to bring it up to desired temp making it more efficient. If it is more than a few degrees, replace the thermostat. You can jump out the red and white wires to confirm the faulty thermostat. If by doing this, the furnace never shuts down, until you separate the red and white wires. That confirms a faulty thermostat. Hope this helps someone.

My Payne furnace is NOT producing the desired heat anymore. Any ideas?


Hello, it could be shutting down on it's high limit switch due to a dirty air filter, dirty blower wheel, weak blower motor. Usually this would cause the furnace to shut down before it reaches the desired temp.

I started my forced air furnace yesterday and it worked fine. Today the burner kicks on when the thermostat calls for it, but this morning the burner kicks on, but the fan won't start.


Hello there,
If the burner kicks on but the fan is not starting, then it simply means there is a problem with the blower motor. The problem most likely is that the motor is dusty and need to be cleaned out.
Once the motor sis cleaned out, have it greased and installed back and ensure the wiring is intact, then turn on the furnace and the fan will start to foll. If that does not solve the problem, then it means there is a problem with the blower motor and it meeds to be replaced.

My furnace kicks on, runs a little while, kicks off, then kicks on again until desired temperature is reached


it could be the thermostat on the wall not working or the fan control is not working as it should also check to see if air filter is blocked

Why does Blower in the inside unit continues to run non-stop? Thermostat set on Auto


Hi!!
If when the desired temp. is reached, the compressor and condenser motor (outside unit) will shut off but the blower in the inside unit will keep working when the thermostat is set to Auto, the problems could be 1 - thermostat unit defective, and 2 - blower motor starter relay defective.
Good Luck!! Don't forget to rate this post!!

Our fan wont kick on , you can do it manually


sounds like your plenum temp sensor is pooched. once your plenum gets to a certain temperature then a sensor closes, telling your fan to turn on, if the fan doesn't turn on then the flames will be shut off by the high limit switch witch prevents your plenum from burning up.

BLOWER MOTOR PROBLEM


If the thermostat isnt set to fan on, and the temp in the house is ok, there is probabily a fan off delay in the units circuit board thats defective.

Coleman Evcon furnace, blower runs continuously even after the temp has been reached.


make sure the thermostat is in the auto mode if so it is more than likely the fan relay control some are built on the board some can be replaced separately

Blower fan runs continually with the thermostat removed or installed. This is a older carrier combined unit with a furnace. Control board installed is a HH84AA 011. Replaced the board with a new board and...


your sensor to the fan is stuck in the closed position. This sensor kicks the fan on when a certain temp is reached in the heat chamber. It opens after cool down and apparently is stuck closed.
