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

Carrier Weathermaker gas 8000 will not ignite

This gas furnace runs OK some of the time, but will not ignite sometimes unless I switch the thermostat off and on again (2nd thermostat-both problems). May run for days and recycle properly, then quit again.

    1. unit is 5 yr old and wiring has not changed, all connections tight

    2. thermostat sensing seems appropriate

    3. this is the third thermostat, have tried standard mercury switch as well as digital ,with the same results. These last two replaced both this winter.



    Comment- something is happening WITHIN the furnace control beyond the thermostat, and is intermittant. Works most of the time, then does not reignite. When the furnace fails to ignite, the exhaust fan runs continuously and has already been replaced. Turning the thermostat off and on recycles the furnace and works well.

    I have a Carrier Weathermaker 9300 TS and it does exactly the same thing!

    I have had 3 seperate repair companies look at it, clean the sensor, adjust stuff, etc. and they are basically suggesting I replace the furnace all together!! It is only 5 years old, but apparantly this is a real problem with these furnaces.

    In order to get mine starting, I have to turn it off at the main switch and then on again. This works only some of the time.

    Every couple of days the furnace won't ignite. The new electronic thermostat is flashing for it to start, but it won't until the temperature in the house drops to about 5 degrees C below the setting or if I reset it. Once it starts it will be fine for a couple of days and then do it again. This is getting very frustrating. Any solutions??

    I have a Bryant Plus 90 furnace. (15 yrs old) Every couple of days the furnace will not start. I need to turn the power switch off and then back on. The furnace then starts up. It happened a couple of times last winter, I replaced the air filter, SPACEGUARD, and had no further problems. The same problem began a couple of weeks ago, I changed the filter again but every couple of days the furnace will not start. The repair man was here for an hour and could not determine the cause. The thermostat will say "HEAT ON" but furnace is not running. HELP!

Heat exchanger replacement for carrier weathermaker 8000


After 18 years of service, it is not cost effective to just replace the heat exchanger. Go the complete replacement route. There may be a utility company incentive to do it.

Weathermaker 8000 58tua stops frequently


Removing the front cover or turning the line switch off and back on causes a "HARD" reset to the furnace. That means, it breaks the line or supply voltage to the furnace and causes the main control board to reset. The main reason for requiring a hard reset is a failure to fire up correctly. There are several reasons for this to happen. If or when the flame sensor detects a flame determines the whole process. When the thermostat calls for heat, the ignition controller delivers spark to the pilot assembly and the pilot gas valve opens. If the sensor detects a pilot flame, the main gas valve opens and the main burners ignite. The pilot flame can be pulled away from the sensor when the main gas opens just long enough to cause this type of failure before the main flame is sensed. The furnace will shut down thinking it is feeding in raw gas with no pilot present to ignite it. All of this happens in just a few seconds. If there is a small window in the burner cover, you can watch it fire after the reset for a clue to the cause. If there is not an inspection window with a sealed combustion chamber to watch it through, it would be best to call a good tech. as it is dangerous with such a short period to ignite while all that gas is flooding the combustion chamber. Check to see if the line from the pilot to the gas valve is tight. If possible, try to move the sensor a little closer to the pilot. If this does not work, best to call a tech. who is familiar with your furnace. Other test with an open combustion chamber are very dangerous and best left to the pros.

Furnace gas valve is not opening


YOUR FURNACE IS IN LOCKOUT MODE DUE TO A SAFETY FEATURE OF UNIT. USUALLY THE HIGH LIMIT HAS BEEN TRIPPED, OR YOU PRESSURE SWITCH FROM DRAFT INDUCER MOTOR FAULTY OR PLUGGED. IT WILL CONTINUE LOCKOUT MODE UNTIL THIS IS FIXED.

I have a Carrier Weathermaker 8000 furnace. it will not light.I tested the igniter on my upstairs furnace and it will glow and light that furnace. I can manualy light the furnace with a match. flame sensor...


If you're sure the igniter is good and the controller is sending voltage to gas valve to open, but not to the igniter then, yes, the controller is bad. The only way to know for sure is to remove the igniter's molded plug from the board and test voltage directly at the board. You should get about 100-120 vac to the igniter.

Furnace wont run


First of all when you flip the switch, it goes thru a startup sequence. THEN it turns on the Igniter (notice the red glow). Then the gas turns on.

Now at this point check the idiot light and it should be giving you a code of 34. That 34 (3 shorts 4 longs) says that there was a problem igniting the furnace. After it cycles thru at least 4 times and fails to ignite all the blowers, then is when you get a code 14 (1 short 3 longs)

NOTICE what's happening with ALL the burner Tubes each time it attempts to ignite. If only one or two are running....then this is your problem.
To fix all you do is take out the burner Tubes, look for debris, blow them out (blow from the front where all the jets are), and replace them in sequence from left to right (the tabs overlap).

Carrier Weathermaker gas 8000 will not ignite


Your hot surface igniter may be bad. It may be cracked which would prevent it from starting the burner flame.
