Weathermaker 8000vs circuit board

My furnace blower is not working in the cooling cycle but works in the heat cycle.
Repairman says I need a new circuit board and it's $562 (standard rate) to repair it.

Is there anyway to re-solder a capacitor or some resistors to avoid this huge repair cost?

This sounds like a thermal disc or the heat anticipator on the thermostat is not set right. What was the $500 spent on?

This is nothing short of a circuit board fan relay of a bad motor.. to find out if the motor is good, unplugg the black & white wire , in which white =ground black=hi-speed 120volts and conect them to power -ground and see if the motor works..if does, then its the fan circuit board if not then its a bad motor...

SOURCE: Rudd UGDG-10EAMER Furnace keeps shutting off before reaching temp

If you have a air restriction, like the tech has said, then the system will be shutting down do to the high limit switch. This switch prevents the unit from over heating, to the point of causing sever damage. Before you call that company back out I would let them know that you are not going to pay for another trip because they haven't fixed the problem. Ruud does not have many problems with the control board. They are a die hard breed.

SOURCE: Code 32 when wind blows

Hi and welcome to Fixya. I believe that the wind is affecting the draft. What I would recommend is to install a cap on the flue that is similar to a weather vane in that it rotates to block the wind from creating a downdraft in the flue. Some times depending on the direction and strength of the wind it will come up over the roof peak and then down the flue. A regular fixed cap may work too. You should be able to purchase one at your local hardware store. Please let me know if this was helpful. Good luck.

Can not get fan on to turn on. All else fine. heat only furnace. No air conditioning...only air circulation.I used to set it on "Cool" and "Fan On"and get air to circulate. Do I need new thermostat?


Since you have two thermostats that operate the heating unit and the fan, and the fact that neither will turn the blower on, I would suspect the furnace/ air handler. Turn the thermostat to heat and see if the heat and the fan comes on, if it does operate normally in heat, the fan relay or the high speed on the blower is most likely the culprit. (If the furnace is equipped with a circuit board, the fan relay is integral to the board, if it an older furnace it has a separate fan relay). If it does not operate normally in the heating mode, verify power to the furnace, see if the flame comes on, if it does: the fan motor, circuit board or the fan relay are most likely the cause. hope this helps!

I have just completed installing a Honeywell HE220A humidifier to a Carrier Weathermaker 8000vs that was installed in 2003. My problem is that all the identified circuits in previous posts on the circuit...


The terminals on the control board are designed to provide power to the controls of the humidifier, not run directly to the solenoid. If you don't want to install the controls, you can run the 24 volt signal from the furnace heat signal (W1/W2) through the humidistat to the solonoid. This will allow 24 vac to get to the solenoid only when the furnace is running. I do this on most humidifiers that I install.

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.

I have a new home 1 yr and when the furnace kicks in, I am assuming the fan it makes a noise but as soon as the heat starts the noise is gone, could this be the furnace blower


Check by turning the unit off and turn the fan to on. Do you hear the noise now? The noise your hearing could be coming from your combustion fan assembly instead. Newer furnaces have a in-shot burner and are nosier than the old style of heater.

Furnace runs constantly since blower motor was replaced


Sounds like they wired it direct to line voltage , it should run through a sequencer or fan relay to cycle on and off , your seq./relay could be stuck closed to but unlikely being it was just repaired , call the service company back before you do anything they are responsible.

Carrier Weathermaker SXI Model 58SX8100LG Code 12


Code 12 I believe is power up after power off and a call for heat from the the thermostat. If you have a weak door switch that may be vibrating and going on and off it would cause this as would any thing that causes the power to drop low or out then reapply its self. try holding the door switch in while watching the board and after 2 or 3 minutes the furnace should go on to lite and the blower cycle off. If it stays in this mode try turning the thermostat off (heat - OFF -cool) and then push in the door switch nothing should happen except the lite on the board come on and stay on. If it does this than have someone turn the thermostat to heat and see if it starts or put the door on and set the heat and see if *** goes through the normal cycle of heating. If however it goes right back into the blower mode and shows the 12 code your problem is still with you. So next remove the wire on the "W" terminal on the board. Retry power to the door switch and now nothing should be on except the red lite. If it tries to start the 12 code and blower up again Im pretty sure you have a bad ignition/blower control board.

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 wbwill@sbcglobal.net

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!)
