"Carrier Weather maker 9200= Junk"
This was supposed to be a top shelf furnace and yet it has needed a service call every year I have had it for some type of repair. When it is running it is efficient however when I have to pay for a $150 service call every year it makes it an expensive furnace to own. Lots of different issues have come up with this now my inducer fan has broken and it is a $500 part replacement so I am looking for a new furnace. Does someone want a rusty and unreliable furnace for a cheap price???

"Secondary heat exchanger warranty"
My review is based on their secondary heat exchanger warranty. Carrier had a lawsuit dealing with this problem, but you had to file by 2008 to benefit from it. Although they still have a warranty that states that they will pay for the part and labor for 20 years (or maybe even lifetime now). Well when I attempted to receive my warranty claim The carrier technicians were not willing to do the warranty labor for what Carrier was willing to pay them. I got the serious run around from both the company and the dealers. First you had to have a licensed Carrier dealer give you a $80 - $100 confirmation that it is broken, then they give you a bloated estimate, $500 - $600 over what Carrier the company is willing to pay. Therefore trying to sell you a new furnace instead. I went back and forth between them for a weak without heat. Each time I called a different installer they insisted on another $80 -$100 estimate!??! I finally gave up and got a better more efficient Rheem furnace at a less price than there so called, $500 discounted price. I will never, never, never deal with any Carrier associated company again!

Weathermaker 9200 58mxa100-16) High efficiency furnace has run good since I bought the house in 2003. Recently had what I suspected to be a cracked heat exchanger since I was getting exhaust smell in the house. (Which Carrier claims won't happen) Did some research and found a settlement in 2008 from a class action suit against Carrier. They are supposed to replace the hx and pay the 4hrs labor to do it. If someone is saying they will replace it and charge you labor they are ripping you off. read the settlement - you can find it on-line. Under no circumstances is the customer to be charged more. I called a couple of authorized Carrier installers and they didn't even know about the settlement. They also offer a "discount" if you want to just install a new system instead of replace a bad part with another bad part. That's probably the best option, but the discount doesn't offset the hefty price tag.

He has tried various fixes; the expert responds that it is probably the blower motor, which they say is not a terribly expensive repair. Several additional posts on this form are about problems with blowers in this unit.
Diychatroom.com features a discussion about a Weathermaker 9200 that turns off and on too often. The owner seems to think the furnace is perhaps too large for the home. This idea reiterates a point that the experts on the forums frequently repeat: the installation is the most important part of new HVAC equipment. The experts add that in this case a load calculation should have been performed before installation to determine the proper size.
