Thread: Carrier RTU

  1. #1

    Carrier RTU

    I am fairly new to the trade. Igraduated from a two year college program and have been working in trade for six months now. While doing a routine seasonal maintenence on a carrier rtu, I went to fire unit and recieved a fault code for the inducer motor. But the inducer was running. What do I look for next in this situation? There is no air switch to sense inducer air, so what is giving me the fault code?

    I could tell you, but then I would be in deep do-do for doing so. Sorry, no DIY...........see the rules.

    Great show aside from the queer undertones. Did that an effect on you?

    I don't understand? I thought being in the trade I could talk to others in trade and ask questions. Guess I need to learn more about this site. Was told by a co-worker that this site was useful and informative. I understand not wanting jonny homeowner to try and do stuff himself and blow up his house. Maybe someone could tell me how and /or where I need to go so that I can talk to other professionals and recieve some insight. Thank you and have a nice day.

    before you start that whiny crap, did you even read that pdf?

    telling you what the problem is, is not going to enlighten you.

    learning is a process, it includes reading, comprehending & hands on.

    Per sight rules you cant give to technical advice here.Please establish yourself as a pro. member and post in the wright area.Anyway,get the o.&m. manual for the unit and it will tell you the sequence of operation.The unit uses the inducer for air proving.Read the schematic to see how.Welcome,and trust me you have to have thick skin to hang out here,I say that from my own past experence.I had to learn that the hard way.This site has helped me very much over the years,but you need to separate ego drivin advice from the good stuff. Good luck Welcome aboard Hang on tight!!!!!!!!

    Yes, this is an "open forum," which means we generally don't share ANY step by step advice because posts can be searched and found by just about anyone.

    So, get your post count up to 15 and apply for Pro membership, and you will get more info to help you get through this.

    As a Pro member, you would also have access to our educational forums, which are a wealth of info by themselves.

    And yes, it is a great site.

    I went to the PDF figuring it must be some confounding miasma of technical information. The solution fairly jumps out at you and the document is so well laid out I printed it for my apprentice for the great CLO explaination. You do yourself a disservice by not reading every word of this and thanking y7turbo for taking the time to post it. Darn Kids...Sheesh
