I have a Goodman split unit installed. The inside furnace works fine. When the system is turned on the outside unit makes a slight "popping" sound like the current is getting there but the fan will not start. I have replaced the capacitor but it is still doing the same thing. Please advise. Thank You, Dan Clevenger. [email protected]

My air conditioning unit stop working (outside unit). When I turn the unit I notice a buzzz sound comming from the unit. I have pressed the reset button on the unit to see it that would help but nothing happend. I check to see if there was electricity with a voltemeter and the unit is getting current all the way to the capacitor. I turned the power off to the unit to check if the capacitor had a charge and it did. What other things should I be checking? Also, the fand do not turn on! model numbe


Hi, what is happening is, you have power to the outdoor unit. I am glad you have a volt meter. This system is a split unit,condenser outside and indoor unit. This is what you need to check, and what the buzzing is, and why the fan and compressor will ... Ruud UAMB Air Conditioner

Not a GE unit. I charged unit with refrigerant and powered up unit. After running for @ a minute it shut off, having no power light at all. I found a set of wires reversed that were going to the outdoor unit. after fixing the wires i can't get the unit to come back on. The breaker is not popped and I assume there is some kind of fuse or overload that I have to manually reset or replace. It is a chinese (i think) made unit Air Control


Since most of these units, come precharged for line sets up to 125' in some models, the fact that you charged it, concerns me. Second you made no mention of the king valve, did you open it.\015\012 Then your diagnosis speaks to overvcharge, an ... GE Quiet-Aire Ductless Mini Split System Air Conditioner

Goodman outdoor a/c unit top fan stopped working while the family was away from home and now the compressor will not turn on. Only thing happening when a/c turned on inside is the indoor unit kicks on and the outdoor top fan begins humming and getting very hot to touch. Unit is only 5-7 years old. It is a Goodman CKL42-1L. Please, anyone with suggestions is appreciated. Definetly do not have money to replace the entire unit at this time.

No cooling I received a call from my tenant that they have no ac. When i get my inspection of the unit to find an extremely durty air filter, which i replaced. Also i cleaned the a coil which was also full with dust. So i figured the time it took me to to do all that cleaning that the unit had time to reset it self. Long story short i still have no cooling at all still. through the first sequence of operation every thing seems ok . dtill no cooling

I have a window unit haier 5200btu and for the first time all season it has collected water in the front and is now spiting it out into my home. i have it on a good tilt and i dont see why it would start to do this now. it is less then a summer old. i really just wanna know how to get the water out of the front so i can run my unit again. and im sure this isnt a good thing but we put our own drain holes in and they have been doing fine all summer.


The drain is probably clogged since you put the holes in yourself I would take pipe cleaner or compressed air and see if this helps it drain. Hope this helps tim ... Haier ESA3055 5200 BTU Energy Star Qualified Air Conditioners ESA3055

Lightning struck outside our house last night. Air does not work. Unit outside does but the thermostat smelled like the wires were melting. Husband got a new thermostat but we can't get the unit to come on. Any Advice?


Lightning is in KVolt range, the exterior unit is most likely damaged at the low voltage cables to the thermostat, melted out, should get a sparky in to trace the lowV lines, and check out the unit, lightning is not forgiving ... Intertherm Air Conditioners

One of the goodman condensing unit for my house starts good every thing works fine, but it runs OK for couple of hours and by then the refrigerant line connecting the unit condenses and it will not blow cool air. I have to turn it off, may be for couple of hours and start again and it works Ok till the copper line gets condensed and problem repeats.


The refrigerant line is actually supposed to condensate, but if you mean "freeze up", thats a problem. The condensation occurs because the line temp is lower than the outside temp, kinda like a soda can outside. From what you described, Im pretty sur ... Goodman CKL60AR60 Air Conditioner

Heat pump shut off 1 to 2 minutes, service yesterday for same problem told low on freon. Added freon, worked fine until it went thorugh first defrost, now back to same thing. Tech says compressor not getting signal from thermostat. After resetting T-stat, unit came on. Unit works on cooling and Aux heat, but no heat pump.


It is possible that you have one or a combination of a few different problems here.If your heat pump will not come on but the air handler works, the first thing you want to check is that the circuit breaker and disconnect for the heat pum ... Carrier Air Conditioners

I have a Carrier whole house Air Conditioner I want to replace. It is model 38EN048320. @ things: 1. What "ton" is that AC rated at? It's so old I can't find what size it is so hard to pick a replacement. 2. With todays models they are all high efficency, should I get the same size replacement or can you step down a notch based on the efficency in models made today? I know a contractor would figure this all out but I'm doing this job myself as I have done this before.


1. 3 Ton Up To 4 Ton 2. You should get the same size - high efficiency means that for the same heat extracted from the residence the unit consumes less electricity than an older one. How much less is explained in the ratings: if your prese ... Air Conditioners

I have a brand new, 6/11/2010 Friedrich Wall Master 13C30 (It replaced a Friedrich Wallmaster), same size. I am getting the "mist" out of the unit as soon as it is turned on, and it continues! The sleeve is tilted, as the replaced unit always drained to the outside correctly. There is nothing to clean or "fix" to my knowledge. Can't call Friedrich until Monday 6/14. Thanks in advance.

No heat We had the mini split installed and have not needed the air conditioner yet. But now that I want the heat on, I can't get any. The indoor unit lights up and the fan comes on but only blows cold air. I have checked everything I dare to, and noticed that the outside unit doesn't seem to be running. I am reluctant to call the guy who installed it because he was not a happy guy to do it in the first place. But he was the builders choice. Any suggestions of things to check into myself?


From my experience, when a new heat pump unit doesn't switch over from one to another, its most often the thermostat isn't wired correctly. The reversing valve needs energized or the common is ... Sanyo 09KHS51 Ductless Mini Split Air Conditioner

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

The bolt, screw, whatever that holds the squirrel cage in place has broken off our unit. What size and type do I need to get to replace it? It's on a shaft with one flat side, and there is a place for a bolt or flat-head screw, but nothing in it, and it's making a horrible, metal on metal noise, with the squirrel cage moving freely from left to right on the shaft.
