Carrier furnace "diode jumpstart" instructions? after filter shutdown


About a year ago I got wonderful help here "resetting" my Carrier 58RAV furnace. The thread had digital photos and a long sequence of instructions that showed how to do a reset to (I think) the diode/flame switch/or ?? There was a jumper cable involved.

Looks like I did it again (waited to long to replace the filters) and I'm desperately trying to find them again - Please if you have any idea how to do this let me know -

"Freezing in Seattle"

Thank you in advance for your help.

Let's see are you getting flash code on the control board?

If so what?

Turn off power to the furnace and then turn it back on and turn up the stat and see if it works?

It may have gone into a lockout

It starts up with a 12 and then after trying to light the burner it goes to 34.

Does the furnace actually lite the burners?

If so for how long?

On the door panels there should be a code fault chart please post

you either have a bad ignitor or the flame sensor needs cleaned.

I already cleaned the flame sensor with fine steel wool as I learned from this site, so I guess I will buy a new ignitor and hope it works.

Thank you and the others here at DIY for your advice and assistance - special thanks to Plumber101 for responding so quickly last night. I'll be back with the 'rest of the story' when I get it fired up!

does anyone know what a "hot surface ignitor" is? (circled in red in photo) I did the self-test and everything seemd to work (motors, etc.) but I'm not sure where the "hot surface ignitor" is located.

Is it the "ignitor" piece? I wish Carrier would use the same terminology throughout. Oh well.
