Question about Goodman CLQ36AR49 Air Conditioner

3 Answers

5 year old Goodman CKJ48-1A Condenser Unit

The compressor has been burning the wires and contacts at the compressor conection.

The pressures at 95 degrees outside were 70/275 for a long time, but lately they increased on the low side and decreased on the high side at the same 95 degrees outside 83/250.

I am getting 63 degrees inside of the house when the external temperature is 95, but the burning of the conectors is becoming worse.

Can you help.

Do what they said also when those pressures equalizing it might be your compressor going out

Check your sources of power all the way back to the meter can. odds are a breaker or wire is loose or burned and starving a line for voltage. check breaker wires for snugness and pull breakers and look at the back side where they clamp on to buss bars. you should see clean copper and silver connections. no black, no gray and no charr. be sure wires are snug in breakers. heat and amps over time cause expansion and contraction of dissimilar metals aka loose wires and poor connections equal high heat and amps and loose wires and burned connections. you may also have a weak start cap run cap or loose compressor terminal. all should be checked.

The high side psi. should be at least around 100# ps more than the low side psi. The low side psi sounds ok, but the high side tells you the problem is the outside condenser is plugging up! Go to an ac supply house,and buy a gallon of coil cleanner and dilute it and fully clean the outside condenser coils ,after it's cleaned ,check the charge now!

Why does the compressor on my goodman package unit turn on and off before completing a cycle?


There is several possible causes. The most probable cause is wrong charge. Many units have a low suction safety on the low pressure side of the compressor. There is often a high pressure swithch to guard against over pressure also on the high pressure side. If your unit has the condensing fan stop in mid cycle, the compressor has inherent motor contacts inside the compressor to help guard the compressor from overheating. I just recently had to replace several customers main contactor because the contactor contacts were severly burned and sometimes could pass current and sometimes could not. I also had a few customers whose condensing unit was so dirty that the compressor was overheating causing the inherent motor contacts to open. Hope this gives you some ideas to look.

My goodman unit (1994) makes the loud noise, like a buzzing noise. The unit works, the blower blows air into the house, the air is cold, but the outside fan that blows across the condenser piping isn'


you need to replace your condensing fan motor. the noise you are hearing is the compressor working against a lot of pressure because the heat is building up in you condensing unit. Prolonged operation without an operating condensing fan motor will cause your compressor to burn up, and then you will have the cost of a compressor changeout to the cost of a condensing fan motor.

I have a ckL 36-1L CONDENSER UNIT BY GOODMAN I NEED A PICTUR E DIAGRAM TO WIRE UP THE WIRES FROM THE COMPRESSOR TO THE CAPACITOR TO THE CONTACTOR TO THE 24VOLT T-STAT WIRES TO MAKE THE CONDENSER UNIT...


Hi, I can tell you how to wire it, but no diagram. Take the common wire from the compressor, look on the terminal cover or straight at the terminals and you will see C, R, and S. Wire colors vary. C is common on the capacitor, R goes to herm on the capacitor, and S goes to the load side of the contactor, or outlet side, to one of the un- used terminals on either side of 220 volts. That takes care of compressor, R, Run, S, Start, and C, for Common. Low voltage wires will be 2 -18gauge wires coming off each side of the coil on the contactor, connected to the 2-wires coming from your indoor unit, 24 volts. Your off and running unless its off on low pressure switch, and then it will start when you start adding freon.I hope I have been of help to you.

I have a Goodman heat pump and the condenser fan and compressor will not switch on. The board green light says improperly grounded or flame sensor not sensing flame (both are incorrect). The AUX heat (gas)...


Does the indoor fan run? Place the fan switch in run. If it doesn't run then the transformer could be bad. Also, there could possibly be some high and low pressure switches that would keep you from getting the 24vac to the contactor. First rule out the thermostat by removing the face and installing a jumper wire between the R and Y terminals. This should make the outside unit run. If it does then your thermostat is not passing 24vac to the unit and should be replaced. If it doesn't run with the jumper in, then your problem is in the outside unit. Trace out the yellow wire from the thermostat in the outside unit and check the components that the wire goes through (high and low pressure switches). Let me know what you find so I can offer more help if needed.

Five year old goodman unit compressor gone bad. Should I just replace the compressor or should I get new air handler and condensing unit. Really don't want to spend the money, can really use it somewhere...


Depends on if your going to stay with the old refrigerent system of R 22 ro upgrade to the new R410A system. I have been upgreading my customers to 410A if the compressor has failed. Replacement of all components recomended on a compressor burn out.

We have a Goodman CKL49-1 - 10 Seer - 4 Ton Condenser. One of the wires that fires the compressor keeps burning and, of course, the compressor won't come on. It is beginning to happen every couple of days....


A bad connection in the power wiring, the circuit breaker, disconnect, capacitor(s) or in the compressor contactor (worn contactor) can cause this due to very high resistance and subsequent heat production. If the unit will run, it should be amped checked to trace the cause.

This assumes that the wiring is correct and that the unit was functioning properly before these issues manifested themselves.

Home unit 3 ton won't run


The small capacitor is for the fan motor the other for thecompresor .You can try conecting a booster (or hot start) in paralel to the comp.capacitor .If this doesnt work you have to replace the compresor.

GOODMAN MODEL CKJ30-1A


I think you mean compressor rather than condenser. Take the panel that covers the controls off the unit. If the clicking noise is the contacter, and it is engaging when the power is turned on, then follow the wires to the compressor, remove the little plastic cover and look for wires that are burnt or otherwise not making contact with the compressor terminals. If the wires are good and you have a volt meter, set it to ohms, TURN OFF THE POWER, remove the wires on the compressor. (remember where C,S,R, goes) touch the meter to any 2 terminals on the compressor. They all 3 should have continuity to each other. No continuity=new compressor. If the contacter is not making the clicking noise when the power is turned on, then you have another problem that I'll need more info. to help.

Goodman Condenser - Heat - Buzzing Noise every 60 seconds


It could be your compressor trying to start but not being able to do so. It shouldnt happen that often but in cold temp the overload protector may cycle that quickly. I reccomemnd to have it checked to salvage the expensive compressor.
