Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

Can a Goodman AC unit with a model number of a 24BTU-2 ton unit be upgraded to a 3 ton unit by changing the piston and the settings on the blower? They are also going to install a 3 ton compressor outside. Would this provide the same cooling capacity and performance of changing the actural HVAC unit to a 3 ton unit and would Goodman give me directions stating as much?


Answers :

They would need to change the coil indoors to a 3 ton. If the blower speed can be increased it should be fine.

Purchased Goodman 5 ton unit in 2007. The problem we are having is: When you turn the unit on and set it at 76deg. the temp states on the controller it set at 81 deg in the house, BUT it would not cool enough to bring the house temp up to 78deg. the unit stayed on all evening, and remained at 86 deg without ever shutting off.... I know thta is going to hurt at bill time. Any help you can provide would be appreiated..... My email address is: [email protected]


Your system could have lost its refrigerant charge through a leak. Check for visual signs of oil at any soldered joints. This would indicate a leak at a point where some oil is visible. Also check for frost on the big line that returns to the outside ... Goodman Air Conditioners

Compressor motors are constantly grounding each time the compressors are replaced. A new run capacitor is installed with compressor. A thorough cleanup and evacuation is performed with each compressor change. Why is this continually happening. The system is within one year old. It is a ton and a half straight cool unit.

Do you have any frost on the lines going to the outside unit. If the large line is frosted your evaporator (Cooling coil in the furnace) could be frozen up. Operating it with the fan in automatic with the cooling on will sometimes be the cause of thi ... Goodman CLQ36AR49 Air Conditioner

I just installed a Goodman GSX130421 3.5 Ton R410a unit alnog with a Goodman CAPF3642c6 3.5 Ton Evap. The outside unit cam with a #076 oriface, along with instructions to put it in. The Evap came with a #78. I put the #76 in, I evacuated the Evapand lines back to the O/S unit. It held 1050 microns for 10 min. The unit hardly cools the Discharge is 430psi, Suction is pegged, outside temp is 93 deg F. High humidity. Where do I go from here?


Since you got it new i think the best way to get this fixed would be to cotact the manufaturer instead of playibg around with things, however these are the causes of the problem : your condenser may be dirty and the evaporator coils should be cleaned ... Goodman Air Conditioners

Unit runs but will not cool. Fanruns fine but when turn dial to cool the compressor kicks in for about a second or two the kicks out. Fan works on cool but it will not produce cool air at any temp setting. I have cleaned filter and removed cometic facing and vacuumed the coil face. It was pretty dirty but after all that still would not cool, Unit is installed in a RV and power is provided from house. Gen4erator is also available for power. Unit is difficult to remove from RV and space to get at

AC Out. Two year old house. Goodman A/C, two units one for upstairs. Cleaned coils of both outside unit, replaced filters, re-set breakers. Upstairs is cooling. Downstairs unit is running outside, not circulating air inside (inside temp 87). Vents inside are cool to touch, no air. Outside unit fan is pulling, but air exhaust is cool. Compressor ? Should air be circulating even if compressor not functioning. Is there anything in attic exchange that would affect downstairs circulation. Thanks.


Assuming that the 2 systems are isolated, that there isn't any cross over between the systems...It is normal for an air conditioner system, from window unit to central, to be able to circulate the air, even if not cooling. This is known ... Air Conditioners

Why would cool air be blowing out of my central ac unit condensor that sits outside? The other unit I have next to it blows out warm air and responds well to thermostat changes. The unit blowing cool air still cools the rooms it contros... but much slower than the other unit does.


It probably has a low refrigerant charge. The air coming out of the outside unit should be warmer than the outdoor temperature when in the cooling mode and if it's a heat pump it should be colder than the outdoor temperature in the the heating mode. ... Goodman CKL24AR24 Air Conditioner

I replaced my outside unit with a 3 ton goodman heat pump unit. My old unit was a 3 ton bryant and the compressor burned up in it. I left the old unit under the house since it seemed to be in good condition. the pump worked fine on ac to start off. But then you had to switch it in heat and back to ac for it to work. So the tech replaced the expansion value and put filters in both lines. I still have to switch it back to heat to get the ac to work. The tech told me that i would have to repla

Have two new 5 ton Infinity air conditioning units with gas furnace in residential installation. Repeatedly getting "change filter" warning. Indicated CFM is 1400 on high cool. This seems low to me. Shouldnt the CFM be closer to 400 to 450 CFM per ton? Could the problem be caused by undersizing the ducts? What CFM is recommended for the 5 ton unit on high? Hank Haeseker, PE


Hi,\015\012Yes, you are correct... the air flow should be at least 400 CFM/Ton for good efficiency. 350/ton if you have a dehumidification mode....\015\012But under 300 is totally unacceptable...\015\012The problem probably is the d ... Carrier Air Conditioners

Just bought a new 3 ton 16 seer Trane for a 1700 square foot house, but it is not cooling properly. I can't get the unit to drop below 75 degrees. I had the unit on for 2 ½ hours starting at 8:00am and it dropped from 76 degrees to 75 degrees. The installer failed to change the AC amps in the circuit breaker to 45. Currently the amps I have now is 36. Does that make any difference. It is 86 degrees outside. Any advice to my cooling problem. ? Thanks


Hi,\015\012I would not get too excite4d about this yet...if you are 10 degrees cooler then the outside you are definetly cooling and the mass of the house is also warm because you have just started the unit...give it at least a day...more impor ... Air Conditioners

To whom it may conern, I live in a 2 bedroom/ 1 bath 760 sq. ft apartment with a 2 Ton A/C unit. We had trouble with our a/c unit and the maintence (which is A/C licensed) replaced it with a 410A unit. He only replaced the outside unit and it did not want to cool. The manufacturer of the unit said that it already came with the right amount of refrigerant. So he cleaned the coil inside and it didn't work. Then the manufacurer of the unit recommended to change the coil which he did and i

I have a Coleman roof mounted AC unit on a travel trailer. The unit model is 83338715. The unit just blows cool air not cold air like it should. I was told to replace the "Hard Start Capacitor" and "PTCR Start Device" which I did. This did not remedy the problem. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Could the problem be the "Compressor Run Capacitor"? Reason being that I hear no change in the blower sound when the unit kicks on???


Blowing 'cool air' could mean - room temperature air or it could be 'cool' because the system is low on refrigerant, and just barely doing any 'cooling' at all.\012\012To determine which is which - you need to know "for sure" if the compressor ... Air Conditioners

Hello, my HVAC is constantly freezing, even after freon is added. I was told that I have a leak in the coils and need to chance the air handler - the outside unit is about 10 years old - air handler about 18 years old. I would like to get only the air handler for my R22 outside condensing unit. My question is if in the future can I use this same 3.5 ton air handler with a new 410 condensing unit once my outside unit needs to be replaced. In other words can a Goodman air handler be used firs

Have a 15 year old Ruud 2.5 ton condenser that broke down (one of 2 units - the other is still working fine0. The furnaces are 4 years old. They are interconnected - not zoned for our 4200 sq. ft. house. Do i need to replace BOTH condensers because of the freon 410 requirement? Also thinking of going to a 3 ton since the upstairs is never very cool when its hot out. Would this help? If we go to 3 ton, do I need to replace the 2.5 that's working at the same time?


I am not sure what you mean by "interconnected". Basic cooling capacity should be figured on 1 ton of cooling per 500 sq. ft. of space. That would be 4 tons per 2000 sq. ft. You currently operate on 5 tons totally. You require 8 tons of cooling. Othe ... Ruud UAKA042 Air Conditioner

I have a Goodman AR61 and it is not cooling. I have recently had the system recharged, because I thought it may have been low. When the service guy came out he said I had plenty of charge in the unit, but he went ahead and topped it off to be safe. He told me that the unit was not circulating because of a frozen coil. Which happens because it may be dity. I told him time were a little tight how much would it be to clean it out. He said give it awhile until it melted and I could clean it myself.


Coils get frozen when freon is low or a restriction on a capillary.The reason he got good readings was because the unit evaporator was iced up. He should have run the system on fan only to melt all the ice and get true readings before charging it. ... Air Conditioners

I have a 2002 year model trailer, it has a Duo Therm Quick Cool High Efficiency by Dometic. Because the fan motor would not start by itself, it popped the breaker after a couple minutes the first time I turned it on this year. I took the top off the unit and give the fan a little spin and it would then run. Once again after a few minutes the breaker popped. I changed the capacitor for the fan but it does the same thing. Could it be the armature in the motor causing the problem? Any sug
