How do heat exchangers work?

The heat exchanger is a thin metallic component of a fossil-fueled furnace whose purpose is to transfer heat from the gas or oil buning on one side of the sealed chamber to the air passing across and coming in contact with the other side of the sealed chamber. By 'sealed' I mean the burning gasses do not come in contact with the air that circulates within the living space.

I have a Carrier model # 58MXA080-F-15112. I think my furnace is 30 plus years old. it isn't heating properly. The blower turns on and sometimes the flames come on, but sometimes they don't. As...

A 13 code means the furnace cycled on limit more than three times consecutively and is in a lockout for 3 hours. A 14 is ignition lockout. An ignitor does not intermittently quit working. I'm the service mgr at our shop, and I know that particular furnace model has a service bulletin out on bad secondary heat exchangers. If your lucky the filter is dirty, or the furnace condensate trap or drain is clogged. Most likely the secondary heat exchanger is plugged up and isn't allowing the pressure switch to make. Or the furnace is overheating due to it not being able to properly vent hot gas. Which would explain the high limit lockouts. Call an authorized carrier dealer so you can take advantage of the free heat exchangers and the $300 labor credit. You can also call an authorized Bryant dealer to perform the work for you. Only an authorized dealer can rectify this problem because the Bryant corp requires testing and paperwork in order to get your free parts and labor credit.
Good luck.

Having problems with metal staining. i was told that i should clean the heat exchanger. can i just take off the front header & flush the tubes with some d-lime. Thanks

There is a very specific method for cleaning heat exchanger tubing and using any acidic cleaner could potentially cause damage to the tubing, especially if it is erroded. As to metal staining in your tub... cleaning the heat exchanger is NOT the answer! If the staining is copper, then cleaning the heat exchanger is NOT going to correct the problem!. Your heat exchanger is likely copper and if it is the source of the copper staining, then the problem is NOT the heater, the problem is your water chemistry. In most pool service calls I have done, involving staining from copper or iron, the most common problem was low pH. If your test is showing a pH of lower than 7.2, then add pH increaser (baking soda) based on a base demand test. If after adding the needed amount of pH increaser, the pH remains below 7.2, then perform a pool stabilizer (cyanuric acid) test. If the results show higher than 80ppm, drain at least 50% of the volume and refill and retest again. A high stabilizer level in excess of 100ppm will result in a low pH and cause metals like copper to dissolve and stain the pool. Get the level down to around 30-40ppm if possible. Stabilizer is added to chlorine tablets to help hold chlorine in the water longer. You can unstabilized chlorine, but chlorine consumption is higher as a result. If the staining is copper, you should dismantle and inspect your heater for erosion and possible early stage leaks. Replacing the heat exchanger can be very costly. Proper preventive maintenance and chemistry balance will keep the staining issue under control. There are some products available on the market to assist with balance, staining treatment and overall chemistry control. I suggest looking at products by EasyCare, called Pooltec, Scaletec and Beautec. These may be beneficial for your situation.

I have a Bosch WTL5410 dryer, which has no heat going to the otherwise functioning tumbler. Do you know where I could purchase another heating element and where I can get instructions regarding the...

Open front panel, remove heat exchanger and clean.
Unplug the dryer. remove the panel in the back of the dryer that covers the heating element. ( the inner panel). On top of the heating element you will see a thermal sensor with a small red button on it. Thats the manual reset button To test if the heating element is working properly you can disconnect the wires from the sensor and clip the connectors together . Plug the dryer back in and start it. pay attention to the heating element. It should begin to glow shortly. if it doesn't then your heating element is bad and needs to be replaced.

Unplug the dryer. Connect the wires back to the thermal sensor. Plug the dryer back in. Before you start the dryer, press the red button on the switch. This is your reset button. Start the dryer. If the heating element doesn't come on and dryer doesn't heat, then you need to replace that sensor.
