You have a very dirty condenser coil (Outside unit). This goodman A/C you have is very hard to get clean it a terrible design you have to take the top off of the unit get a coil cleaner I like Foaminator and clean the coil for an hour spraying from the inside and outside numerous time. Heres how to verify if its a dirty coil put your hand over the top of the unit it should be putting out a lot of air blowing your hair back. If its dirty the air will be very hot and it wont blow your hair back. Let me know ok
two things to try first to get you pointed in the right direction. First disconnect the R or RH wire from the T-Stat. If the furnace turns off (Stops firing w/ fan to turn offabout 90 sec. later) then you more than likely have a bad Thermistat. If it continues to run Pull the R wire from the Furnace circuit board. put door back on furnace if it stops you have a short in the wire. Still Running? Most likely a bad curcuit board. Hope this helps.
Sounds like it is overloading and tripping the circuit breaker (that thing that pops up). More than likely when the fan fell down it stopped the blade from turning which caused the motor to overheat, melting the windings insulation which caused them to short out which causes the circuit breaker to trip.
Sorry, you are going to have to get a new motor to go with the new lid.........
Check the wiring of the fan motor and the compressor itself.There is some short circuit that trips off the circuit breaker or blows the fuses. Do the following isolation procedure:
Disconnect the fan motor from the circuit then turn the ACU on.
If the switch does not pop up then the fan motor is the culprit. The windings are probably damaged and shorted when the fan fell down. The fan motor bushing/bearing are most probably damaged and caused the rotor to touch the stator and eventually damaged the windings. In this case replacement of the fan motor is the key.
If the switch still pops up, disconnect the compressor then run the fan motor.
If the popping up of the switch disappears, replace the compressor. You may need the service of qualified appliance technician to do job.
Did you tip the unit on its side or its back to change the switch? If so, then read on and I may have an idea for you: The water level is controlled by a small pipe that goes into the drum somewhere low down and leads up to a little bellows device (It looks like a spinning top, about 4 inches or so in diameter with a (usually clear plastic) pipe about the thickness of a pencil connected to it and 2 wires. The other end of the pipe is immersed in the water in the tub and as the water rises, so it slightly compresses the air in the pipe, operating the bellows device and throwing a power switch to isolate the water inlet valve. If you have tipped the unit on its side or back, a little water may have got into this pipe. With the water in the pipe, more water is required in the tub before the air in the pipe is compressed enough to operate the bellows. Find the unit, find the pipe, clear out any water in it and the chances are that you fix your problem.
You MUST WEIGH IN THE NEW CHARGE OF R-22. There should be a label on the side of the a/c unit that states what the factory charge was. This is only a starting point. Once you have the factory charge in the system, then turn on the unit and allow it to stabilize (5 min) . Check pressure on low side and check teperature on low side pipe. Temperature of pipe should be 8 to 15 degrees above what the boiling point of the refrigerant is for the current pressure you are reading. If the temperature is more than 15 degrees, add R-22 in 4oz increments allowing 5min in between each time you add until you are in the "zone". When you do this, your head pressure needs to be 225-250. if you need to cover the coil or block the outdoor fan to do this then do it. Hook up the vacuum pump and start over
You need to clean the reading head. When doing this you need to be very careful about static electricity. And never run the unit with anything more than the lid off.
First there are 3 screws on each side that take a side cover off.
Second there are 2 more screws that hold the lid on. Once the screws are removed lift the back of the lid first and tilt forward to clear the front switches.
Third; Remove the top of the DVD unit, to do this there are two screws and two tabs that hold the top on the DVD unit.
Fourth; To clean I used a vacum, but you can use canned air. But be very careful. These are very delicate parts.
Do not let the vacum touch any of the electronic parts. Do not do this with the unit plugged in. Before you test the Player put the top of the DVD unit back on. You can leave the main lid off at this point.
