Question about Carrier Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

We were running our air-condition and we could hear water running ---water was seeping from underneath our furnace. We shut it off right away and the water stopped. we do have a hose going into a drain but it is difficult to get to--so I am not sure if it is working. We have a Carrier Weathemaker Infinity variable speed.

    Thanks for getting back to me. I am not sure- as soon as we heard all the water we shut everything down and started cleaning up the water. I think air was coming out of registers because it was nice & cool.We keep it set at 75. We haven't turned it back on because it is still so wet and we didn't want to make it worse.

    Any other thoughts??

    If the air mover running at normal speed?

    Do you have air coming from registers?

    If not, then the exchanger is trying to freeze up and losing more water than the drain can handle.

    I'm no expert but we recently experienced the same thing when our air mover fan failed.

Only that you might be right about the clogged drain; if you can reach the drain end of the hose, you might try covering it and blowing backward into it to see if it is in fact clogged.
Our setup has the drain located with easy access and the initial pipe is open and centered over a larger fitting so the condensate can drip freely into it.

Good luck-

Nordyne model FEH-017HA-04 furnace...the fan comes on full force with ac but not when furnace comes on

On newer furnaces the fan starts in a period of time factory set and is initiated by the control board. The air conditioning fan is started by the thermostat and starts right away when the stat calls for cooling. You will need a tech. familiar with this model and carrying the right parts to look it over. Does the furnace fire and then shut off in a few minutes? If so, it is most likely to be the board. Sorry. It may be pricy.

Goodman furnace model gmp125-4 constant fast blinking red light on circuit board, furnace dont work, have moisture in bottom from seeping drip pan under acoil

There should be a chart pasted to the inside of the front access panel of the furnace. It will tell us what that particular blinking sequence means. Goodman isn't listing a gmp125-4 furnace so I need to assume it is a condensing gas furnace. I water has backed up into the draft inducing fan, the furnace will shut down. There is no reason for water dripping from the drain pan unless your A/C is running and the drain on the pan is plugged. Give me all the info. you can and exactly what is happening. Please look up the coded problem for me. I'll watch for your reply. I hope this is not too late to help.

If the drip pan switch is shutting the unit down , this means you have a condensate drain issue. Be careful about wiring around any safety switch, especially if the furnace is in the attic or on a second floor. You could have water dripping on the ceiling. The drip pan switch is a safety switch. The best thing to do would be to inspect the furnace. The pan is underneath it. Look inside the pan if you can. If it is full of water, use a shop vac and vac the water out of the pan. If there is no water, you can locate the safety switch, take the two wires loose from it and just wire them together. Caution: This will be wiring around the condensate safety switch that could cause water to leak on the ceiling or floor depending where the furnace is. Don't go too long without getting someone out to clean the condensate drain out.

My furnace which is run by oil and is water baseboard is not producing heat to 2 of the 4 zones in my house. I checked the zone valve and that is working okay. I do not believe the pipes are frozen,...

Let's see if we can do some trouble shooting steps:

First-- what temperature is the boiler keeping the water at?
and the circulator pump is running like it should, right?

As the pump runs, do you hear any gurgling sounds?
This indicates possible air int he system---
Have you tried eliminating air from the 2 runs that are cold?
Water can NOT circulate, if a bubble of air traps off the loop--
The water flow stops, even tho the other loops are flowing fine.
There should be an air bleed screw at the high point of each of these loops
(Like possibly-- at the high end of the radiator?-- Often a screw driver slotted screw-- WHen you open it, air and water will come out, until just water--- Then do the other loop-- and come back to the first, -- repeat until yo get NO AIR out of the loop.
You should feel hot water start flowing right away.

Let us know if this helps-- if not we go tothe next steps!

Let us know further,

Water dripping from furnace while air conditioner is running.

you need to have a drip line that take away the water when the ac is on so the water does not goes into the furnace ,also check for leaky line that could causing water to leak back

Carrier SBP Humidifier is not working

I would suggest turning up the humidistat (usually located on the the return air duct to a higher setting and listening for a "click" noise on the supply valve. If you do hear a click but dont see / hear any water than the culprit is likely the valve itself.

Your AC inlet might have been blocked by dust. So it is adivisable to clean with water using pressure hose. This could solve your problem.
