[HVAC] HELP! Water in pressure switch and potentially in inducer motor
My 10 year old carrier furnace refused to turn on. Essentially, when I turn on the furnace, the inducer would start spinning for about 15 seconds, and I will hear clicking sound closer to the 10 second mark, and in the end the furnace will shut itself down. This will loop for 4-5 times until the furnace lock itself down due to many fail attempts. I get check inducer motor error code with this.
After a week or so, when I turn on the furnace, the inducer motor doesn’t even spin. The entire furnace is quiet and refuse to start in any form and I simply get a pressure switch open error code.
Eventually, I Got a technician to come and have a look. He initially said I need a board replacement. But after he took out the entire pressure switch, it is filled with water, in which he said is not normal and would need replacement. Does this conclusion make sense based on my facts?
The replacement would cost a thousand buck. Any recommendations from you guys? I’m a complete noob in this field and for myself to replace it is kind of out of the picture.
