"Inducer fan motor failure"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

This furnace is just over 6 years old. The inducer fan motor failed. Cost of a new one is over $940. The Carrier warranty ran out just over a year ago. Customer care is not interested in any form of assistance. Basically told me to get lost – politely. It would have been easier communicating with a brick! Last time I buy a Carrier product. A motor like this should last the life of the unit.

"Carrier is Junk"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

As part of new construction, the builder installed a Carrier Infinity gas furnace (Model 58mbv) in April 2006. In June 2011, the blower motor went out. Since it was outside of the 5 year waranty, cost to replace was $1,029. In June 2014, started to experience air conditioning problems. Like others that have posted on here, the cause was a leak in the evaporator coils. Cost to replace was $1,500. So in just 3 years, I have shelled out over $2,500 on this piece of junk and the furnace is only 8 years old. I had a Trane furnace and air conditioner in my other house and never had a repair problem with either the furnace or air conditioner in 17 years. Wish now I would have insisted the builder install a Trane furnace and air conditioner. Never again will I have Carrier. If I continue to have problems with this furnace, will cut my losses and replace the Carrier furnace with a Trane furnace.

"Don’t buy a Carrier Product"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

We purchased an Infinity 96 Furnace in 2005. It has stopped working every winter. Most repairs were not covered under warranty. We purchased the furnace from Cozy Comfort Plus Inc. In Toronto, on and when we complained, they said they’d be happy to sell us another furnace. This year we have a warranty with Direct Energy but they’ve been out three times in the last three weeks and can’t seem to keep it going. It’s now 5 degrees in our house. My wife and children are in a hotel. Don’t buy a Carrier if you don’t want this to happen to you!

"58uvb60-14 2 stage"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

Had my Carrier installed by one of Carrier’s recommended dealer in Kentwood, Michigan. In August of 2010. This would have been my 3rd summer turning our ac on with zero results. Repairman came out, we were his 4th call this week for same unit and same problem, corrosion coil. What was suppose to be a 3-hour warranty job turned into a 2-day process due to the toxic chemicals that were now in. y system. I was also told that, although Carrier is aware of the faulty coil they will not cover the labor. Here is the fun part, a friend of mine in a different town had the same unit installed and all parts and labor were covered. Stay tuned, we will see who is telling the truth soon. Carrier or Kentwood Plumbing and Heating. The biggest issue however is Carrier has a huge issue with the coils and they need to do something about it. We had toxic chemicals in our unit, who’s to say if my family was breathing any of that in.

"Infinity 96"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

Very disappointed in the Carrier furnace and the company. We bought a Carrier furnace 6 years ago ($5600!) and 5 years later we started having problems. We have had to pay for many service calls and now it’s finally broken down- basically, the cost to repair is too high and with no guarantee that something else won’t go wrong we figure we may as well invest in a new furnace… but it certainly won’t be a Carrier!! …Nor will I recommend this product to anyone.


Other Infinity 96 Reviews

Comments on HVAC-Talk message boards and heating contractor sites are mixed in opinion but generally favor the Carrier equipment:

  • In the HVAC-Talk forums some posters claim that Carrier’s air blowers and inducer motors are loud and rattling but do run consistently and provide good results.
  • Others in the HVAC-Talk forums state that Carrier requires a considerable amount of precision and maintenance to run, but the wiring is easy and consistent with industry standards, and repairs are very easy to conduct.
  • One author at the HVAC-Talk forums claimed that a Carrier’s inducer motor failed after 13 years and was easy to fix.
  • Another person, presumably a professional in the heating and cooling industry, insisted Carrier was one of the best brands on the market, in engineering, performance, and dependability.
