Condensate Pump Issue

Postby tatlikacik » Tue Dec 27, 2011 9:43 am

I've a Carrier 92 Comport furnace and condensate pump (little giant VCMA 15ULST) attached to it. All of a sudden pump cannot push water up on tube. I cleaned the pump. but nothing changed.

1) is that normal that I get soo much water in the pump? - winter time -
2) pump is working fine - i think - but not much power to push water in the tube....do you think pump can go bad like that? do I need a get another pump.

Thanks for you help.

Well if it is not pushing water chances are your pump is bad but make sure your hose is not clogged.

I am assuming that the pump is running but it just can't pump the water high enough.
If you hear nothing then I'd confirm that its getting power and that the float switches are working. If you've got power and the lower float switch is working then a new pump assy is in order.
Many condensate pump assy are less than 100 bucks.
