Default Carrier

Can someone give me an estimate of age? 1974-75?????

Electric Carrier units

AC: Model 38HQ940300 Serial R055014
Heat: Model 40AQ030330JR Serial Q0A54360

Data plates on both were very hard to read. I can't seem to locate them in either of my reference books.

Thanks in advance!

Randy

Default Re: Carrier

According to my foolproof chart (which usually proves to be a fool)...

ANNNNNN This serial number was used from 1969 to 1990. The first alpha character is for the month of production.
A-M = Jan-Dec 1969-1979
N-Z = Jan-Dec 1980-1990

So the letter "R" would be May...

('I' and 'O' are not used)
The second digit, a numeric character is the production year
The balance of the numeric characters are the production sequence
e.g., A912345....this serial number would be a unit produced in Jan 1969
P512345....this unit would have been produced in Feb 1985

So the number "0" would be 1980 or 1990

or maybe not...

Neat chart David. The CARRIER HVAC section agreed with my chart. I wasn't all that sure about mine because it's quite old, but I feel better about it now.

And I'm going to file your chart for furture reference. Thanks...
