    water in carrier inducer

    ive seen this twice and dont really know why on 2 seperate condensing carrier furnaces model 59SP5A100 the draft inducer fills with water. All drains are clear i can watch it drain, vent is correct size and pitched correctly, furnaces are level, all tubes connected properly. just wondering if anyone else has seen this?

    Is the pressure switch tripping?
    Instead of learning the tricks of the trade, learn the trade.

    Not that I don't think that the furnace should be able to handle the excess condensate drain back but that is what happened when I had the same issue on a Goodman furnace

    I've run into the same problem and never really found a cause, I'm assuming it's building up somehow and flooding down into there after it shuts down. It would only happen every few days, so I'm Unsure.

    Apply for pro membership. It is an issue, and if you want the info I can delve into it. It is a head scratcher, and the only reason I am versed in it, is because it kicked my tail a few times.
