Question about Carrier Air Conditioners

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-

AC is not cooling


Problem #1:Outdoor condensing fan motor has stopped running. This problem could be caused by a bad motor run capacitor. If your motor capacitor is not the problem, then more than likely you need a new motor. Is the fan blade tight, stiff or hard to turn? If the fan blade is hard to turn then you probably need a new motor. Problem #2: Air conditioner compressor will not start. When power is applied to the air conditioning outdoor unit the fan starts, but you hear a sound like the compressor is trying to start, "UGGG"..., for about 5 to 10 seconds and then all you hear is the outdoor condenser fan run. The compressor is locked and will not start. What is happening is the compressor is trying to start, but because the compressor motor is locked it tries to start for a few seconds and then because of the high amperage being drawn goes off on internal overload. The internal overload protects the compressor windings from overheating and burning up. I see this many times during the start of the air conditioning season. Some compressors just have a hard time starting after sitting all winter long. Some compressors are locked up so bad that I can not start them and must tell my customer that they need a new compressor . Many times I can get the compressor started again without having to buy a new compressor or new air conditioning system by using the device that is called, "Super-Boost." I keep two or three of these on the truck. They have saved many of my customers from having to buy new air conditioning systems.

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.

Air conditioning runs all the time


I assume this is a manufactured home, this is probably a two transformer system, either your contactor is welded in the on positon or wyou have control wiring issues, (could be the thermostat)

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.

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.
