Trouble Shooting a Carrier 9200 Weathermaker Furnace
 
I have a Carrier 9200 that is about 9 years old. The last couple of days, it has produced a burning smell through the vents (smells like electrical fire) After trying to self diagnose, this is what appears to be happening. the venting motor goes on for 90 seconds, then burners ignite, then "sometimes" the blower goes on. When it goes on, sometimes it runs fine, other times it shuts off quickly. When it doesn't go on at all I hear a humming as if there is power to the blower motor, but it just doesnt kick in? I took off the guard shield and self spun the "squirrel cage" and that seemed to work? Any suggestions! Has there been any type of recall on this model?

Also, on the venting motor, I hear water swishing. What could this be?

Any help would be welcomed

No recalls, sounds like you have a blower motor going out. The water you are hearing is probaly the cause of a plugged up condensate trap. remove it and flush it out in the sink.

Troubleshooting
 
I have a 9200 carrier weather maker furnace. I came home this week and the furnace was not running. However, the house smelled like burnt wires. I turned off the thermostat and tried to restart. When it did restart the furnace ignited and the fan began to blow but shortly went out. The Blower never came on. I changed the starting capacitor and that did not work. So I thought maybe the fan blower blew out so I replaced the blower in the squirrel cage. So when i tried to start the thermostat the furnace seem as though it was going to come on but then it never ignited and a code of 3 -4 came on the led display. What should I do to get my furnace going? Please help

Did you do as was suggested in post #2????? Sounds like the sensor for the inducer motor is not sensing the combustion chamber pressure. Could be because of the water??
