Sounds like you might have more than one issue. If the breaker is tripping could be the compressor. If you have to press in the contacts to make it come on something is not sending 24 volts to the contactor. may be a bad wire that runs from the outdoor unit to the control board in the furnace.

Communication problem. You say condenser stat and power are fine? if that means the condenser runs but the air handler doesn't that means the communication is good and the blower is not running. That may be a capacitor (you must have ammeter capable of checking microfarads) if not that check power it may be board driven. If no power to blower the board is bad assuming power is at board. If that is ok the blower motor is bad.

Hi,

The contactor or relay that turns the coils on has burnt the contacts closed....therefore the contacts are not releasing and shutting down the coils...

You can also shut them down by turning off the power to the furnace at the breaker.

I changed the thermostat and then the ac stopped working


if this is a split system, go to the furnace or air handler. Shut off the power, remove blower door and find where thermostat wires go to control module.

Remove thermostat wires writing down where each one goes. Make a jumper wire and install it between r and y or r and y1.Put everything back together and turn on power. IF blower motor and ac start, you have
a low voltage wiring or thermostat problem.

If nothing happens then you either have no power to furnace, transformer
could be bad or you have blown a little 3amp automotive fuse that is
installed on the control board.

York Diamond 80 Issue. AC and Blower work fine. Heat will not come on. Circut breakers are fine, all power is on. Any advise.


Open the furnace door. Turn the thermostat on, and hold the power switch on. Look for the service code on the control board. That should tell you whats wrong with it. www.FastACservice.com

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.

Need to know which terminals run what


Had similar problem, continuous fan, turn off power, then won't start up. Replaced thermostat, no change. The main controller board in the furnace went bad. What was weird was that it happened in the summer, while the heat was turned off. One day I noticed that the fan was running. The thermostat was in the off position, and I had to shut off power to the furnace to make it stop. I forgot about it till heating season came along and it wouldn't start up. The preliminary blower would start, the gas would click on, it would light, then quit. After tracing and checking the various safety switches, etc. it became apparrent the main board was bad. I found one on ebay, replaced it, [a simple job, unplug, a few screws, replug] and it's been working fine..good luck, John

What part do we replace first?


Door safety switch. You are sure you have power to furnace? jump out the G and R terminals on the furnace control board or turn your thermostat to Fan On to check. Make sure the door safety switch is in the closed position. Fan should come on. No fan, no power to unit. Check Emergency switch, circuit breaker and there may be a fuseable link in the wiring somewhere either above the unit or a condensate safety switch. Get power to the unit. Also check to see if there is a small fuse in the wiring inside the furnace or on the circuit board.
