Carrier 58PAV070-08


Please help get my wife off my back, she's cold.

My furnace would not stay running, the flames would go out after running for only seconds and I would get an ignition proving failure alarm.
I have since replaced the flame sensor, (first time in 13 yrs, I have cleaned it several times in the past).
Now the inducer blower will not even start, only the house blower.
The code I now get is a continuous flashing light, reversed polarity?
The transformer does not smell or appear to be cooked.
I have depressed the limit switch (between to wires in the top right corner) several times to reset.
Could my problem also be the "fusible link"?
I have already ruled out the exterior furnace switch and thermostat.

If I don't fix this soon, my wife of 20 years will be forced to deal with this herself as I will be off to the Carribean for good, without her.

First you need to correct the politary issue before you can do any diaginoses

Measure from black to ground and verify that you get 120 VAC. Measure from white (neutral) to ground and verify that you have 0 VAC.

Measure from 24VAC com to neutral and verify that you have less than 3 VAC.
