When we started to use it a few days ago the blower came on but it never ignited the furnace so we have no heat. I cleaned the dust from the air intake upstairs -- still nothing. Help if you can -- furnace is in the basement.Post created: 2015-10-14 Type of Equipment: Furnace Views: 238

Blower worked when we started to use it this month, but it never lets the gas ignite to the burners So we have no heat even when we turn the thermostat to 80 degrees . It it a Carrier Comfort 80 model #58DLA070___13112 installed by Reeder Heating of Anderson , Ind. in 2000's. It has always worked until this heating season. We have done nothing just cleaned the vents upstairs: it is a small house and insulated. It wasn't used for several years as we didn't have it finished. But it is working fine the last few years up to this week. We used it up to May of this year just fine.

Couple of ideas for you.
The manual for your furnace is here: http://dms.hvacpartners.com//docs/1009/Public/01/OM58-131.pdf, and Carrier has provided instructions for startup.
(They also offer the following warning: "If a suspected malfunction occurs with your gas control system, such as the burners do not light when they should, refer to the shutdown procedures on inside of main furnace door, or in the Shutting Down Your Furnace section and call your dealer as soon as possible.")
If the manual doesn't help you sort this out -- or you don't feel comfortable and qualified to take the steps listed in the manual -- then we recommend that you hire a licensed heating contractor to help you sort out what's going on. You can go back to the company that installed the unit, ask your neighbors for recommendations, or we can help you find a contractor here: https://www.furnacecompare.com/perl/find_contractors.pl.
