I have a recently installed('07) Goodman outside condenser that always seems to have a puddle of excess water under it, around the base, and on top of the slab it sits on. I worried about eventual rusting. It does seem to have gotten progressively worse through the Florida summer to the point of algae growth on to top the slab in the sitting water. It has also been very loud since day one, I had the installation company out twice to complain about the noise and they claimed it was normal for a Goodman. They installed a compressor blanket but it is still annoyingly loud. It starts up fairly quiet but get's progressivly louder with time. I have compared both the moisture and noise level to every other unit I see and none compare in either catagory. Any ideas??? Thank you.....J.P>

First of all, refridgerant is a gas. All AC systems leak water due to the condensation from the ice cold pipes meeting the hot ambient temps. Look around at most other cars in parking lots, anyone using they're ac will have a puddle. Get other opinions before you act.
Hello, it sounds like your condensate line is clogged and not be able to drain into the condensate pump or your condensate pan is cracked and leaking. Best thing to do is clean the condensate line with a shop vac and see if the water will start to drain, if not looks like the pan is cracked.
There shouldn't be a reset switch. The only units I've ever seen or heard of having a reset switch were old Rheem condenser, they had a high pressure switch that you could reset by pressing a red plastic button, but even Rheems no longer have them and I've never heard of Goodman using them.
What problem are you having with your A/C system? And why are you looking for a reset for it? Please repost your question and give us a bit more info so that we may help you with your probelm.
your unit shouldnt flood your yard .. now check your unit to see where your drain from your unit ( inside)is going .. if that is going outside where your unit is then there is where your water is coming from..
there is a drain from the a/c housing that runs the water condensation to the outside of the vehicle, it should be on the lower passenger side of the firewall under the hood. sometimes these will clog with dirt and debris causing the condensed water from the evaporator core to build up and drain on the passenger floorboard. if it is coolant you are seeing then u have to replace the heater core.
Is the condenser fan (outside) turning? You mention that it's hot but don't say if it's turning or not.
These fan motors normally run pretty hot, but not so much that they shut down due to internal thermal overload protectors.
Both the compressor and the fan have termperature overload protectors to keep them from burning out the motor in the event of an overheated condition. The condenser fan must be running or high freon pressure will put an excessive load on the compressor and it will 'kick out' the high-temp overload protector.
Turn off the unit by pulling the outside disconnect (in a small box near the outside compressor unit) or flip the AC breakers in the breaker box. Wait about 30 minutes for the unit to cool off and turn it back on. If the compressor and fan both run for awhile then kick back off, or the fan motor seems to be working under excessive strain, you've probably got a bad motor start condenser (inside the unit) that little round can that is connected through the fan motor wiring. If it's swollen or leaking, it's almost surely defective and even if it's not, excessive load on the motor is a classic sign of a bad start condenser.
You can usually find these at electrical supply stores, well-stocked hardware stores, or most certainly at an HVAC parts house. Be sure to replace the old one with one of the EXACT same value (in voltage and Microfarads (mF) capacity. The shape may be a little different, but as long as the electrical characteristics are the same and is rated at the same or higher voltage than the original, it will work.
Connect the new condenser, mount it to the frame, and restart the unit. This should take care of the problem.
The evaporator is probably not excessively condensing in as much as the amount of condensate is directly proportional to the amount of humidity in the air. It sounds like the problem is more likely the primary drain is restricted by algae; if this is the case I suggest pouring a cup of bleach in the primary drain and see if that clears the primary drain. Note: the secondary is just that it is designed to keep the water from overflowing into the house. Hope this helps!
