    Is combustion air taken from inside the home on this model? If it is I'd be suspicious of contaminated combustion air from solvents, glues, or that kind of thing.

    I've checked all the things you listed, but this is definitely not drain or sewer odor. In fact I spent many years working for the local gas company handling gas leaks and odor calls and so could...

    My own Carrier MVP is about 8 years old now. It exhibited the same symptoms you've described for most of one winter and drove me nuts. Showed a pressure switch code, but I could never find a fault....

    Yup, sometimes. Lots of driving and so much to see along the way. I've driven across much of the USA and Canada and still have only seen such a small fraction. So much variation, so much beauty,...

    We called those "assured fan controls". As said they will bring the blower on quicker, and will maintain heat in the control through the run cycle so the blower will run a bit longer on shut-down...

    I've seen a couple of cases where roofers sat on or somehow crushed down the B vent cap restricting the venting. Worth checking.

    BTW, are you referring to the high limit, a vent safety switch, or...

    I'm in a 2400 sq foot split level with a 35 yr old 8 SEER unit and I'd say it's sized just right.

    By your R of T I'd have a 5 T unit in here which would blow my ductwork to bits.
