Topics I've Started

Carrier WeatherMaker with Code 31

03 November 2013 - 11:32 AM

My Carrier WeatherMaker 9200 stopped heating with a code 31.  From reading the forum and manuals it looks like it could be one of several things.


  • Blocked drainage
  • Blocked air duct
  • Pressure Switch Failure
  • Inducer Motor

The motor spins when the system attempts to fire up.  I never see a glow in the burner view port.  I have been unable to locate the inlet from the manual which shows where to pour antifreeze went winterizing.  I read that you could pour water through to see if the drain is clogged.


When this first happened, it was off for a day, then came back on by itself.  For that reason, I was led to believe it was the drainage.  Perhaps the Pressure Switch is getting flaky.  Is there a way to test the switch?  Or should I simply replace it and work from there?



Slow Dip on Rudd Power Vent Water Heater

24 October 2013 - 04:14 PM

I have a slow drip from my Rudd Water Heater through the Temp and Pressure Relief Value.


The heater is a Power Vent model PVP75FW


We are on well water and the water contains minerals which have damaged other appliances.  We have installed a CSI filter recently.


So, being a relief valve, I'm wondering if it is "Relieving" itself or if I may have a damaged valve.


And just out of curiosity, how many others type "value" for "valve".  I seem to do it all the time.



By "slow leak" I mean perhaps just under a gallon over 30 hours or so.

Freezer check underway for ice build-up -- defrost heater, thermostat

07 May 2012 - 09:07 AM

I have the GSS25LGMAWW side by side refrigerator with ice building up in the freezer bottom. I imagine I have a problem with either the defrost heater or perhaps the thermostat. However, I'm not sure how I should approach the problem. I have an old refrigerator in the garage, so I transfered all the food and I have the back panel off of the freeze unit. I also watched the video on the mudda board test, but I'm not sure how to access the board.

Any help on connectivity testing for this model would be greatly appreciated. The have full access to the front, as well as, the back and the beast is fully emptied and dried out.


Clanking Video - GE front load 6260FWW

07 June 2011 - 07:14 AM

I have a schedule maintenance for this washer, yet I'm wondering if it is something I can access myself.

Washer rattling video

A loose metal object is rolling around between the metal inner drum and the outter plastic. The bearings appear to be packed and the spinning is smooth, so I don't imagine it is a loose bearing. Perhaps a support screw came loose. The front load is less than 5 years old. I'm wondering if I can easily access the inside compartment to remove/reinstall the loose item. Any thoughts?
