inducer motor

    Hi all, my draft inducer is hesitating periodically when it starts. I suspect it's a loose black wire I noticed - coming out of the bottom white connector (circled in bottom of photo). Do I need to use the white connector? Would I be able to cut the black wires and connect them via spade...

    So I've been frustrated trying to figure out a furnace issue. The inducer blower turns on but the igniter won't glow. After a while of troubleshooting, I figured out the igniter is fine but there doesn't seem to be enough airflow from the blower to close the pressure switch. I thought maybe...

    Good evening, I have a York YP9C furnace. When I went to switch on the heat, nothing happened. Looking at the control board (FCB), i have 3 quick red blinking lights to indicate a pressure switch issue, however this is due to the inducer motor not turning on. I have diagnosed to board myself...

    Hey Gang, First time poster here. Went to fire up the heat for the first time this season yesterday, and after 30 minutes I noticed it had been blowing the whole time, but there was no heat. This is a model number GUI075A012AIN. Taking a closer look, I saw that I had three blinking lights...

    Hi everyone. I have a strange question that I was hoping for some opinions on. Three days ago, I had someone out to do a 30-point inspection on my furnace which was functioning properly. I was expecting a sales pitch and I have some experience with HVAC and a lot of experience with...

    The draft inducer on my furnace is not coming on. The switch clicks like it is telling the inducer motor to kick on, then the furnace ingnitor comes on and the furnace is heating. But the heated air is not going anywhere since the inducer isn’t coming on. Is it safe to say I need to replace the...

    New member here. I have an old Ruud Silhouette 2 75,000 BTU 80% upflow gas furnace from 1995, and ever since yesterday the blower motor and inducer stay on after every heat cycle unless I turn the power off to the furnace and wait about 15 mins to turn it back on. If I turn the power back on any...

    Hi there, thanks for reading this thread. We have a 15 years old Day&Night gas furnace that has been working fine until now. For some reasons over the past two weeks, the unit (furnace) became so hot that it would just shut down by itself, which we will have to then go to the basement and...

    I have a Carrier 58CTA135 furnace that is 5 years old. The inducer motor recently failed. A tech installed a new motor today, but after working with it for nearly 2 hours, he told me he could not get the motor to spin without the inducer wheel hitting the housing. He recommended I replace...

    Hey all. I have a Carrier 58 PAV Furnace, and for the past several days it's been making an increasingly disturbing noise, a high pitched humming/whistling noise, that is coming from the induction motor assembly. When the motor assembly turns off, it sounds like a jet engine powering down...

    Hi, I have a Carrier 58PAV07-08, series 180, s/n 2801A50213 It started intermittently making noises. The noises generally start before the burner kicks in, and last until the end of the shutdown sequence. From my reading here, that would seem to indicate the induction motor. The inducer...

    Hi, I recently had a repairman tell me my control board was bad, the hot surface igniter was reading high, and the inducer motor bearings were going out...and I need a new furnace due to cost to fix. I decided to repair it myself and now I'm a bit stuck. I replaced the the control board and...
