Carrier is one of the leading producers of furnaces. It has been in the industry for decades. In fact, it had also established its name through its innovative products and flexible services.
However, there is a probability that consumers may encounter issues even from known brands like Carrier. But then, this is not always the case. There may be consumers who would even refer the product to a friend or relative.
Therefore, there are consumers who smiled and there are those who frown. Every reaction and mood will entirely depend on their personal experience in using the product.
The features and benefits of a product are always presented on an enticing manner. However, the veracity of these words will be tested once it is already on the end-user, which is the consumer.
Therefore, the word of the consumer who actually used the product could be a testing-meter. It determines if the product is really effective or not.
Let us talk about the Carrier furnace problems. If you will research and go out to check what’s going on with the product, you will encounter consumers who are smiling because they like the furnace.
However, there are consumers who had Carrier furnace problems. A consumer in FAQ on heating equipment had had issues with his Carrier furnace. This furnace has model no. 58SXA100-JG. The unit had been working on and off.
Upon calling for a service tech, the consumer was informed that high temp switch has to be replaced. Following the techs advice, consumer replaced the temp switch. However, the unit worked for one day only.
The next day, it is not working so a technician was again scheduled. The same tech adjusted the set up of the temp switch. The unit worked for 10 days then stopped working again.
The process went on but the unit was not repaired. The furnace has been working intermittently since then. One probability is that the furnace might be already old.
A consumer named Blazek from Illinois has the same problem. He vented it out in consumers review section. His furnace is working intermittently. He had to replace one part of the furnace to another. However, the problem had been ongoing until the furnace had reached the end of its life period.
Twenty out of sixty three consumers said they are satisfied with their Carrier furnace. Twenty seven out of sixty three consumers yielded very unsatisfied. The others are either neutral or somewhat satisfied or unsatisfied.
If you will check the reviews and the reasons of their grievances; the common denominator of the Carrier furnace problems are the intermittent performance of the product.
There could be different reasons why a high percentage of the reviews pointed to the direction of intermittent performance of the unit.
Perhaps the reason is the units’ old age, an old model or other technical probabilities. Regardless of the reason behind said Carrier furnace problems, it reflects the performance of Carrier product as a whole.
Are you planning to buy a furnace? Regardless of the brand that you have in mind, do your assignment first. Make a research and ask around before you make your final decision.
