If your uniy is not producing water then check if the compressor is running. Whether you have a central or a wall unit you will hear the compressor come on. There is a way to check the compressor by removing the compressor cover and wires then ohming out the compressor terminals. REMEMBER THE ORDER THAT YOU TOOK OFF THE WIRES. You,ll have run [R], start [S], and common [C] you should a reading across all three. If one or more do not show a reading then the compressor has an open winding. If all have readings then the compressor motor is ok. Check for burnt or broken wire which might have saw when you opened it. If the compressor is running then you are low on refrigerant.

Even quicker turn it on . wait ten minutes . did you hear the compressor run ? feel the top of the compressor dome is it hot? then it was either running or tried to run. if its ice cold then it lacks voltage and you can back trace voltage sources to contactor usually. think of it this way. if fan motor outside is on then you are getting a signal from stat to cool. the fan comes on and therefore the compressor should be on also. if its not then you have a high voltage problem to the compressor this is usually a contactor. check contactor with a meter to be sure contacts are feeeding 230 volts to compressor. if it is feeding then the cap may be bad test it or pull it and have motor shop test it. if its good then kill power and inspect the wires going into the compressor. sometimes they burn off. get a lug repair kit if they are . be sure you kill power to do you inspections. be sure you know how to use a meter. be careful.if the unit has been off several hours and you crank it up and the fan motor outside doesn't come on then the motor or cap is bad, that will soon cause the compressor not to run. check ,test the cap and if good ,replace the motor. wire for wire in exact configuration you removed it. more specifically be sure the fan blade is exactly as far from the grill on the new motor as it was on the old motor. check rotation of the blade , most new motors are reversible with a set of reversing leads that are on the side of the motor. be sure blade is snug to shaft, motor is snug to grill or mounting cradle , amps are under rated perf value and cap is correct for new mpotor

We gave a Goodmn Hertz 60 Phase I heat pump - installed this summer....worked great for cooling..now that temps are dropping we are needing heat. When we turn it on it comes on but never heats. Think it...


If you changed the unit but didn't change the thermostat it is possible that the thermostat that you have will not work with that unit. I see that the unit you installed is a heat pump, you may have a straight cool T-Stat. If you put the T-Stat in the "Auto" "Heat" mode the outdoor fan and the compressor should be workng as well as the blower fan. If it turns out that the outdoor fan and compressor are not running you will want to buy a Thernostat that is compatable with heatpumps should be 2 heat/ 1 cool

Heat pump not running


check your house circuit breakers first that should be labeled heatpump or outdoor unit
make sure it is on and or not tripped
then if you have a box outside near the outdoor unit open it up and see if there is a breaker or maybe fuses that could be blown

Heatpump A/C not working


First,Turn on the heat cycle (Not Emergency)and see if the outside unit come on,If not,and you don't have low voltage outside,Go to the inside unit and test the transformer,If you have low voltage from the transformer but not outside,It is the low voltage wires,If you don't have low voltage from the transformer,It's the transformer.If you have low voltage outside when in heat mode,but the unit won't come on,It's the contactor.Let me know if you need more help.

I have Goodman combination heating and cooling outdoor unit PBB series. I am wanting to know if when the heat is on should the fan outside turn or is that only ac


If it's a heatpump, then yes the outdoor fan will turn unless the unit is going in defrost mode. But for the majority of the time a heat pump is operating in heat mode, the outdoor fan is running.

Goodman heatpump. Crazy pressure in heat mode


Check the TXV valve on the outdoor unit, it could be stuck closed. We have been experiencing the same problems with the 410 systems and the TXV was the culprit. Good Luck
