    Weathermaker 8000 furnace lights, but shuts off almost immediately. Fan would not come on. At thermostat set fan to 'always' on mode. When burners lit, stayed on a little longer then furnace shut off including fan.

    I have a six burner Weathermaker 8000 the first three burners close to the gas valve light all the time the last three are intermitant .There is a sensor at the last burner that must be heated for the furnace to stay on or it will shut off. I cleaned the orfices with air and the pipe they sit on and it seemed to help a lot. Factory repair people had told me to buy a new furnace !!!

    Same problem. What I did to fix it was to take off the sensor wire (this is done by un-clipping it and undoing 1 screw with a 1/4" nut driver) and clean it. Reposition it if necessary so the flame hits it but do not try to bend it as is will break easily.

    My furnance will not start in the morning unless I turn the switch on the side of the furnance off and then on again.

  • horoussel Nov 26, 2008

    Some times the furnace won't start unless I turn the kill switch on and off, then the igniter will come on then go off because the gas it seems won't come on, then the igniter will try again and the furnace will start. I don't think it is the thermestat as it is a new one.
    The furnace is seven years old. I have already replaced motor.
    Can anybody help? Thanks.

. Several times of recyling power normally brings the furnance up. Though the failure code has always been 31, there are several different behaviour when the blower starts after reset :
a. blower simply creases.
b. there is an attempt to start the heating unit (I hear the high pitch noises), then everything stops.
c. there is an attempt to start the heating unit (I hear the high pitch noises), once I see the orange glow from the coil, normally the gas is lit up and the unit starts working.

    10 year old furnace started intermittent lock up with error code 31.
    Careful investigation revealed intermittent inducer motor. It starts
    but stops running or it won't start when heat is called for.
    Took the control board out(HK42FZ004) and went through it. The problem found was cracked solder joint on two high Wattage resistors R34 and R33
    (both 330 Ohms) had cracked solder joints on the PCB due to heat(?).
    Reinforced the joints with silver solder. Now furnace is behaving normal again. Google search showed it is known problem mentioned in service bulletin. Going price for replacement board is ~200.00.
    Hope this may be of some help for someone who has same furnace type.
    (Carrier, Bryant, Payne brand uses same board I believe).

This happened to our wder maker 8000
the ignition sensor/ thermoresistor is broken get it serviced
this turning on and off is because the system checks if the gas is lit using the sensor, if it does not detect fir it will shut off to prevent explosion

This is what happened to my WeatherMaker 8000 furnace.
I first hear a heat pump motor runs and gas lit through burner for a few seconds then shut off repeatly a few times. I also measure PL2 wires connect to Igniter which its' position on the second right burner counting from the right side when you face to furnace. Before gas lit into burner, the voltage is about 12 VAC until gas valve open to let gas into the burner then I measure at the PL2 wires which connect from PL2 to Igniter turned into 120VAC. Meaning that there is a power runs up to Igniter but Igniter does not have a connect , power was cutting off, then gas valve closed. I unscrewed the igniter and find out the the element from igniter broken. buy a igniter from dealer for the cost of 35 dollar plus my labour while I call for an service with the price of 300 plus. so far i am getting my furnace back working again. for this reason, i did research some things new about the flame sensor but i can not say i will be right for this. in case of the you can see a igniter turns light on, gas lit into burner and there is still problem of shutting off , then there could be possible a flame sensor malfunction. you can sand slightly off the carbon around the flame sensor. I think the flame sensor is picking up temperature and tells the cpu that so far there is a heat, then let cpu will let gas lit continuely into burner. it may possible that if there is a high heat exists, and flame sensor will tell the cpu shut off the gas valve and stops supply any more heat. if you are at this situation, you will smell a strong burn smell from the paint of the furnance, and it also tells me that the motor is now malfunction.

On this unit a code 31 usually is a high pressure switch or relay not closing. Use the diagram on the unit. Find pressure switch. There is a button in the center of the switch press it to reset. Also check the ignition module and flame sensor for burn out.

I think the running on power up is just a test mode for a service person.

The filter should slide out of a built in rack from the side of the furnace by the return inlet. It should have the size on it or you'll have to measure it. It may also be inside the bottom door. Pull the door up and out, the filter will be on one side or the other. Unless you have a special Hepa or electronic filtering system.

Hello, if this is a electronic ignition Furnace the relay is located on the intergrated control board. The only problem is that you cannot replace only the relay on those boards, the whole board must be replaced.

Why does furnace overheat and the limit switch shuts it off?


Are you in the North East region of US?
For the pass 6 days I saw a lot of postings for furnace and humidifier failures.
Partly is because the weather but the root cause is lack of maintenance.
====
User think LIFETIME Electrostatic air filter is maintenance free.
That is not true.
It's wash-able and need to be handle with care.
Inspect the air filter and replace it..
====
Lack of air circulation cause the furnace frame from burning efficient (BLUE FRAME) to orange / red color.
Over time,the temperature sensor will be coated with carbon deposit and record a higher temp reading.
They circuit will activate the fail safe and not allow the igniter to start on.
In your case,limit switch shut itself off.
Here is a LINK to pictures of Weather King temp probes and sensors.
A clean filter and temp sensor will save you money.
Dial back the furnace to 65F until you can get hold of the filter and clean the sensor.
==== If the MODEL TAG is still in plain view then please post it on reply.
Please keep me posted on the fix via email.

RVP 8000 A/C just experienced slight power surge. Compressor on.


I'm leaning toward sticky relay as well, but if you want to confirm it's not thermostat, remove thermostat from wall, and temporarily disconnect the yellow wire from thermostat (compressor) when/if, it happens again. If compressor stays running, I'd say relay for sure.
Just for future reference , Gray wire from thermostat is low fan, green wire is high fan, yellow is compressor, blue is ground. ( For cooling side) The red is 12 v + to furnace and white is negative to furnace.(heat side)

Sometimes this can be caused by a dusty control board.


Inspect flame sensor, (located in burner area, opposite side of hot surface ignitor). If the tip of sensor have a white carbon build up on it, it needs to be removed and cleaned, Good luck.

Can't find FURNACE filter


First you have to get the old filter/s out. If not it will cause big problems in a short time. Use a coat hanger to grab the filter if you cant reach it. When you remove the old filter you will probably see how to install new ones. I think more than one filter is required for this furnace. Note the sizes of the old filters and buy the same replacements.

Don't worry about cutting some tape if needed. You can get another roll at any hardware supply. If all else fails, measure the interior of the return box and buy the right size filters. Remember, you must remove the existing filters!

Gas not coming on Carrier Weather Maker 8000


either the gas valve is not opening or your not getting gas to the furnace.  also the gas valve won't open unless the draft motor comes on.  if the ignitor is trying to light, but there's no gas, it might be a bad gas valve. i would call your closest NATE certified contractor
