In Topic: Carrier WeatherMaker with Code 31

I checked the vents and they appeared to be clear.  I then took off the top tube to the combustion chamber and (ooops) sucked through it.  I got a throat peppering of debris.  The furnace started because the tube was off.  I then reconnected the tubing and the furnace kept running.  Did I need to cycle the power after restarting?  If not, I believe the problem was blockage in the tubing.

 

Thanks all,

dgp

From the photo, do I use the top tubing on bottom tubing?

 

And this is the pressure switch, correct?

 

Thanks to all three,

In Topic: Slow Dip on Rudd Power Vent Water Heater

 Note that some water heaters have a longer than standard valve because they have thick insulation on the tank. ie: http://t.homedepot.c...N&showPLP=false
Try to avoid the cheap ones. Not worth the time.

I actually did get a pressure valve from Home Depot with too short an extension and had to take it back.  The longer valve was needed to get through the insulation.  Unfortunately, I didn't heed your warning and had to make two trips.  Now all is well.  Thanks Yamabushi.

The pressure valve looks like a standardized part.  Can I simply go to Home Depot and get something like this Valve?

 

Or perhaps the pressure setting has to match.  I've tried the other suggestions and feel I simply need to replace it.

Yamabushi, I owe you a Mountain Dew.  Thanks for the instructions.
