Re: Unit/control panel completely dead

Check your circuit breaker, "off" and "on" the breaker it my be tripped off. If it wont work may be some fuse blown in the control, or the control itself may be defective.

Comfort control center not working properly

You need to check the cable that connects the Comfort Control to the upper unit. This cable has four wires and should have continuity through all wires. If there is a break in one of the wires or a short, it will cause the CCC to fail and report an error. If all this is fine, then you have a bad control unit in the main unit. Try unplugging the rear unit from the control board and then resetting the Tstat, if this works, then there is a communication problem between the front AC control board and the rear AC control board or the rear control board is bad. Check the cable between the front and rear AC for OK. If it is alright, then you have a bad control unit in the front unit.

Another quick check is to remove the inner shroud from the front unit pull down the control box. Remove the access cover and view the dip switch panel located inside. It should be labeled Zone 1 Zone 2 etc...try turning off Zone 2 and furnace and resetting the tstat. If this works then turn zone 2 on and reset the tstat. If this is ok, then turn the furnace on and reset again. If this works, then all should be ok. If one of these fails, then you can pinpoint the problem there and move forward.

Hope this helps,

Carrier 38TXA030 not working

That sounds like a very efficient system Gratz. You can try a reset by throwing the breakers off and back on and check all your micro fuses on boards and zone controllers. GL!
