I bought a Carrier furnace, 58MXA080 in 1994 and I have had the blower motor replaced THREE times. The last failure was preceded by many intermittent code 13 limit switch lockouts as the motor was late starting and the system overheated. I had 4 service visits to trace the problem, but it only happened intermittently.
I asked Carrier for some help with the two cent cost of a new motor, but they said that since I didn’t have an annual service last year, it was my fault that the motor failed.
The last guy that did a service cracked the plastic intake and exhaust pipes. There doesn’t seem to be anything in the service that has anything to do with the blower motor. I clean the electrostatic air cleaner at least 4 times a year in the dishwasher.
QUESTION: How do I get Carrier to help pay for the cost of the replacement blower motor?
