Recheck the wiring on the thermostat and at the package unit to be sure that nobody took and wired them incorretly so that the heat worked.

5 ton goodman package unit not coming on


If you look on the install manual. It says it will work for a heat pump without backup heat. No heat strips.........If you do not have strips the guide says as follows

"PLACE A JUMPER (PIECE OF WIRE) BETWEEN Y AND W IF YOU ARE USING A HEAT PUMP WITHOUT AUXILIARY/BACKUP HEAT." if this dosnt work check the fuse in the air handler you may have blown it if you did not turn the unit off before installing.

Goodman package unit heat strips will not turn on


Put meter probes at in put terminal of the element if you read 220volts that mean your relay is good. if you got it there use amp meter on one leg of that element. You should read some amp draw there but if there is no amp draw it mean the element broke.

How old is the unit? Heat pumps don't work when it's real cold, you know it's limits. If it's not real cold outside, then it may be low on gas or such and need a service call.

OD model#, CKL36- 1F and the indoor model#, AR36-1. The indoor does not have the electric heat strip in it but has the place for it. I want to convert it to a heat pump. Is it a 3 ton system? How many KW...


You can use the existing air handler for a heat pump condenser unit up to 3 tons. The line set, evap coil are fine for a heat pump.
The electric heat strip issue can be another problem, you can put several different size strips in depending on what may be needed where you live, the power requirements will differ with each heat strip, for example a 5KW (5000 watt) heat strip requires a 2 pole 30 amp circuit for heat strip and air handler combination.

Wiring instructions for Thermostat Honeywell with Carrier Package


Jumper R to Rc and hook hot wire from transformer to R usually red wire
O = Reversing valve probably white or orange If you get heat when calling for cool or Vice Versa then switch wire from O to the B terminal.
Y = Contactor usually yellow
G = Blower usally green
Jumper Aux to E need to go to unit and use the wire that goes to your Auxiliary or 2nd stage heat
L = Light if you have this terminal on your unit then hook it up.
C = Common from transformer usually black, if you have this terminal on your unit hook this wire up.
Make sure you go to your unit and only hook these wires up if they go to these locations.

Its 28 degrees out side and my goodman 3.5 ton heat pump package unit is blowing cold air out of all my regesters


Sounds like the heat pump is not running. Check outside to see if the fan is spinning.

Try moving the thermostat to emergency heat and see if that gives you any heat. If it does, then you have heat until you can get a service technician to locate the problem with the heat pump. It could be a wide range if issues from bad thermostat to bad wiring to bad capacitor.

the problem sounds like 1 or 2 things either you have a bad sequencer for the heat strip or the emergency heat portion was not wired up.
