My Carrier 58MCB140-20 is...

My Carrier 58MCB140-20 is producing no heat. The blower goes on for just a few minutes.

Contractor's Assistant: Did you double-check the thermostat's settings? And what about the filters?

I replaced the filter 10 days ago, and I've reprogrammed the thermostat. It had been set to "hold."

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

No, but it's late. I may need to call someone tomorrow. I don't see a pilot light--should I?

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

I don't see a pilot light. Should I?

What is the Rand W?
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
I’ve got the R and W wires. How can I “jump” them? The connections are a bit different from your diagram. There is no screw connection.
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
The wires just plug in...

Do you have a pic you can attach? You can use needle nose pliers to jump

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
No.Could it be the programming of the thermostat?

Blower was on for a few minutes, now off. I’m at the thermostat

Jump R and W

Ask Your Own HVAC Question

Yes remove front to expose wires

Ask Your Own HVAC Question

Did you remove cover>No pic

Ask Your Own HVAC Question

OK tis is a two wire so no W here. e would need a meter to troubleshoot to see if we have 24 at the red and blue R and C at that zone cotroller.

you can get an inexpensive one at Walmart for about 15 bucks if you would like to troubleshoot and I would be happy to guide you.

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Okay. I’ll get one tomorrow, and I’ll get back in touch.At least I now know that it’s a thermostat issue. Thanks.
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Check between R and C—on which panel? The thermostat control has no R and C wires.Between the R and C wires on the Zone Control, or on the furnace?
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Got it. Thanks!

Thanks for letting me work with you
