Try getting a job in our industry and quit being such a dick.
Rheem. They also make Weatherking and Ruud.
Do you have any slab piping (piping under a floor or crawlspace)?
"Communicating" means it's gonna cost a LOT more to fix.
You definitely need a pro to look at your furnace, I highly doubt the thermostat is your issue.
ABSOLUTELY DO NOT DO THAT. That switch is designed to make at a minimum pressure needed to properly combust. You clearly have a venting issue that needs to be addressed. Running it at a lower...
Call someone before you let the smoke out of it.
When I came up, you weren't allowed to braze lines until you could do it nicely. We had an entire semester on brazing and soldering in trade school. I had to be state certified to braze 1-3/8" and...
Carrier 90% furnaces are notorious for badly vibrating inducers. Also double check on 90's if the flue has 58 J-hooks in it mounting it too rigidly to the ceiling. I will often remove J-hooks and...
"There are no stupid questions, only stupid people". (Not calling you stupid, just a favorite phrase of mine)
Personally, I've been oxy/acetylene brazing for over 20 years. I use 15% exclusively. I fail to see how this would be quicker, and if you need a product like this to make your welds looks nice then...
NO. Braze it.
Sweet job saving all that money by "fixing" it yourself. With all the money you saved you can afford to hire a pro to fix it correctly now.
So far, in my experience, it can't:
- handle dual fuel applications (had several fail and run HP and gas at same time)
- handle Rheem heat pump systems (had had several failures including one that...
I personally have had to remove four malfunctioning NESTs this year. IMO they are cheaply made, overpriced junk.
You put it in yourself? I bet you saved a fortune over using one of those evil contractors who gouge on prices.
GMPNs never came with SmartValves in them. However, Goodman also had an array of board problems where the board molex solder joint would crack and cause phantom lockouts. Try wiggling the molex...
X2, bypass is opening. Might be overcharged too.
Found another one today, 15PJL. 467171
X2. Adding rads will be a LOT easier than a bunch of mini splits, and more comfortable.
Carrier has a 48 page troubleshooting guide for these POS furnaces.
Don't go with ductless splits, you will not be happy with them. The units will not heat as nicely or evenly as a boiler will. If you really want AC that bad you can add a separate system for that...
Yes, you have created a short. The fuse is protecting your transformer. It's time to call a pro in and have them look everything over for you.
Carrier has had issues with inducers on 90% furnaces vibrating loudly. I have had to repeatedly replace some to get to a quiet one. You should have it replaced again. As a side note - Carrier does...
Sorry, we don't offer DIY advice on these forums. I would recommend you have a professional service the entire system and diagnose your problem for you.
