Question about Goodman CLQ36AR49 Air Conditioner
Greetings, I have 2 units, heatpumps. One is fine the larger unit is not cooling. I changed the filter. The fan comes on but there is water beneath the unit. Any ideas what the problem may be?
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
