infoengr Posted January 1, 2010 Report Share Posted January 1, 2010 I have a technical question regarding implementation of my Carrier furnace within my residence. Specifically, the furnance has been installed for 17 years and I have not had any problems with it. I have noticed that occassionally (less than once a year) the pilot light will extinguish preventing ignition of the main burners during a call for heat. However, I have noticed that during a call to heat where the pilot is not lit, the inducer motor starts followed by the blower without the burners lighting (presumably due to the lack of the gas valve being opened with no pilot). When the pilot is not lit, continuous inducer/blower occurs. Is this the desired mode of operation of the furnace. If the pilot should go out when no one is in the residence for an extended period of time, the inducer/blower will continue to run as the residence will not be heated. Please advise. Thank you.
