Customer Question
I waited too long...

I waited too long to change my filter, and now I'm getting a 3-1 status code on my Carrier furnace unit. How do I clear the code?

Contractor's Assistant: Did you check the furnace's filters?

Changed it last night.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

If I can. I'm no HVAC guy, but pretty know-how mechanically.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Carrier model number 58MXB060-F-11116

Let's start by turning power off and back on.If that does not clear code we will go from here.

I have pulled a manual on unit and the 31 is not a limit code.It is a pressure switch code.

Does small vent motor come on?
