You should have liquid line filter/dryer that maybe restricted or there is a restriction in the orfice inside the evap coil normal operating pressures are 68/ 180

Goodman unit runs and at the a-coil there is a piston where your suction and liquid lines connect. On the liquid side the piston is cold but warm on the other side of piston. A/C unit will not cool.


That piston is the metering device. On the liquid line, before the metering device it is always warm (this is sub cooled, high pressure liquid), but should flash to low pressure, lower temperature vapor once it passes through the metering device. The suction and liquid line never connect together.The liquid line brings liquid from the condenser to the evaporator. The suction line brings super heated vapor from the evaporator to the compressor. Since the unit does run, I'd have to put a gauge on it,but if I had to guess, I'd guess you have high head pressure. Check for dirt or debris on the condenser, check for proper clearance of the condensing unit and check for operation and directional rotation of the condenser fan. This could also be the result of an over charge.

Charging an air conditioning system


R22 systems should run a 68# to 70# suction pressue. If you look at the suction guage at 68# that is a 40 deg evaporator coil temp.

High suction press (98psi), normal head press (140psi); full sight glass;low super heat (10 degrees);normal subcooling (13 degrees) new txv, new evaporator, new condensing unit 70 degree air from vents ...


lower fan speed.....and double check head pressure, sounds very low!!! should be around 250-275.....also make sure the return air grill is large enough.

Ac won't go down past 78 F while operating the presures are 15/ 150 psi. I think it needs charge. But how much charge what pressure does the low side need to be at?


The temperature outside and pressure chart are needed to accurately determine the proper charge. (temperature pressure charts to calculate heat gain) However the low side of the unit should read around 70 and the high around 210. This is a really broad generalization and I do not recommend you charge your unit just on this info. It will get you close if you are using R-22 and the unit is properly cleaned. A dirty evaporator coil will cause a severe low pressure reading on the low pressure side.

AC not cooling


first off you should have a four ton unit. what is your super heat? is it pulling attic or outside air?

Air not cold enough to cool house


Make sure the outside fan is running. Also check the high side pressure, I assume the 70# is the low side pressure, so you can tell what the compressor is doing. If the fan and compressor are both working, make sure there is good airflow through outdoor coil and check that it is clean. Let me know what you find.

I assume r-22 refrigerant by the pressure... you have a saturate temperature of approximately 41 degree and 71 degrees at the service port this equates to a 30 degree superheat. a condenser saturation temperature of 105 degrees and since the liquid line temp at the service valve is not given only the enterin indoor coil on the liquid line a 96 degree temperature this would equate to a subcooling temperatureof about nine degrees. You have too high of a superheat reading. verify that the bulb for the txv is correctly positioned and insulated. if it is then you need to remove the bulb from the suction line, hold it in your hand to warm it up and see if the superheat changes. you could also have issues with your ductwork. If the supply temperture is around 50-55 degrees then the unit is doing all it can.. Check the txv and the ductwork as the subcooling indicates that the condenser side is doing it's job, but the superheat readings indicate that you are starving the evaporator..

GSH13 Goodman heat pump split system is running a long time in cooling mode and will not cool below 74 degrees. A lot of condensation generated. The low side pressures 78 to 81 and high side pressures are...


Check sub cooling and super heat. the New ac units are very critical to charge. There is a charging chart on the inside of the cover to the unit outside. Check temp difference across coil. Should be 18 to 22 degress. If you have an ampmeter. Check the heat strips one 5 kw might be stuck.(sequencer). This would cause you not be able to pull down temp. Goodman unit are hard to charge to get the temp difference across coil. Feedback please

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!
