Question

Carrier 9200 Furnace - Drain Line?


I opened the cabinet to our Carrier Weathermaker 9200 and found a big area of rust inside and around the furnace. The black tube in the attached picture somehow became unattached. This line has an attachment fitting at the end of it. I can't find any obvious place where it connects. One option might be that it connects to a line out of the hole above it in the picture and out to the floor drain? Any help is appreciated.

That one should have a plug in it. Its only used when the furnace is installed in a horizontal application.

Thanks for this reply. I tested the the tube by filling it with water and it was indeed plugged at that end.

most likely you have a leak at the outlet of the draft motor where the 2" pvc pipe attaches. It looks like you are missing a clamp on the pipe. (above the arrow in your picture.)

Just to be sure, you're referring to this one in the picture below? The rust stain sure looks it's from a leak around there. Please confirm and I'll go buy another 2" clamp tomorrow.

Thanks. I can confirm that the tube has a plug in it and that the leak is not from that tube.
