The unit has condensate run-off issues. This furnace is very unreliable and costly to repair.

"Worst Furnace EVER"

"Warranty - A Joke"
I have two Carrier furnaces in my home, one upstairs and one down. The upstairs in the attic exhaust blower stopped working just a few months outside the warranty of a new build home. I purchased my house in August and it went out the following 5-years later in the following winter. I donít have ac but will be installing this upcoming year; I was going to purchase twin Carrier units to go with my twin furnaces to the tune of $8000. To my chagrin, I found out that if I had registered my units within 30-days of purchase I would had gotten a 20-year warranty on the furnaces. I fought with Carrier over this and even filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau and basically was told to go pound pavement. Who the h**l reads all their warranty fine print within 30- days of moving!?! Who the h**l writes a warranty for a major appliance with this type of caveat!?! Now I have to pay almost $800 to have this fixed! Customer Service? Carrier doesnít offer Customer Service!!! They were even rude on the phone!

I had a Carrier 58MCB high efficiency gas fired furnace and air conditioner installed on 9/2010. The motor was bad and had to be replaced on 9/2013 only after three years. At a cost of $435.00 to me. The original Carrier 58 series, single speed motor was still running after 27 years. I would not recommend the variable speed motor to anyone.

"Base 90 Gas Furnace Model: 58MCB - Defective Part"
We've had our Carrier Gas Furnace for 4 mths (albeit the base model), and already had a defective part (Pressure Switch) replaced. Apparently, the technician himself replaced about 40 of the these parts this past year, never mind how many the other technicians replaced. So, how long or how many more defective parts will be replaced before Carrier does something about this and probably other problems. And to think we replaced a 23 yr old Lennox furnace (no problems at all) because it was recommended that for resale purposes it's better to have a high efficiency furnace (whatever the series).

I bought a new home in 2007 with a new Carrier furnace; I had anticipated a good working furnace for many years... So far, I've had to bring a Technician in twice because the furnace had broken down...the 1st time was to replace the motherboard, the 2nd time was to replace the blower motor. This furnace has cost me hundreds of dollars (warranty covers parts only and registered Carrier service Technician costs are ridiculous) in repairs already and it's only 4 years old. My warranty expires next year, and I'm dreading what the cost of this "bum" furnace will be then.
Other 58MCB Reviews
A thread on hvac-talk.com reveals a discussion about different Carrier models, including the 58MCB. One expert says that, even though the 58MCB is a base model, it is part of a high-efficiency series and is a quality product. Another contractor points out that technicians often quote base models because most homeowners want the lowest price possible.
A potential Carrier customer asks on gardenweb.com whether or not it would be worthwhile to upgrade from the 58MCB to a model with a variable speed blower, as the 58MCB has a single-speed blower. An expert comments that a variable speed blower provides more comfort and is therefore worthwhile, but it is up to the customer to decide on paying the price difference.
A Carrier 58MCB owner writes on justanswer.com that his blower has been running nonstop in the two months since installation. He had consulted a technician, who did not know why it was continuously running. An expert on the site explains to the owner how to disconnect a wire in the control panel, which will reportedly make the blower run only when the furnace is heating.
CARRIER 58MCB Model Numbers
The 58MCB is available in different models which vary in efficiency and capacity.

Carrier offers a 10-year limited warranty on the 58MCB parts and 20 years on the unitís heat exchanger. The warranty must be registered within 90 days of purchase by the customer; an unregistered furnace receives a 5-year parts warranty and 20 years on the heat exchanger. Secondary owners receive 10 years for parts and 20 years for the heat exchanger on a registered 58 MCB; however, an unregistered secondary furnace is only guaranteed for five years on both warranties.
