Question about Heating & Cooling
Air filter was Filthy, system ran all night,,unit was frozen over ,Ive let it thaugh,out tried to start, NO FAN
System froze because the fan motor stopped working, could be that the fan motor is bad, or if it is a PSC it could be a bad capacitor.

Check that the fanmotor can spin freely. If not, can be caused by seized bearing on left side of fanblade, or foreign object, insect nest stuck in fanblade. If however it spins freely, check that fanmotor is being supplied with voltage (you sound technically capable of operating a volt meter). If power is supplied, fanmotor is faulty and needs replacing. If no voltage, problem lies with the pc board. If you know someone who is capable let them check the relays on the board. Also you can check that all plug on connectors are making good connection.

are you speaking of the outside fan or inside? compressor should be a little warm but not boiling hot. the unit could be low on freon. if low it will run a while but the compressor will overheat and shut off leaving the fan running by itself ouside. if nothing outside is running check power. if you have power check the contacted outside to make sure it's pulled in. contacters are bad about going out on goodman untis. Also ants can get under contacts.

If the compressor kicks on and runs fine, this usually indicates that the freon in the system is good. Is there anything else that can obstruct the air into the unit or into the cabin? I believe that this refrigerant will be R-22, and may be difficult or impossible to purchase without a license. I also think R-22 is sold in cylinders larger than you'd want. Check in your unit, though. If, by some slim chance, it is R134a, you CAN buy and install this yourself, but, again, I doubt it is. Your best bet would be to have a local technician put the gauges on it and recharge it. Be sure to check for leaks. If you're losing refrigerant, you need to get the leak stopped, or you are going to just throw your money away.

Check outside unit if unit and compressor are running feel the large line to see if it is cold. If compressor is running and line is not cold possible charge problems. You may have a capacitor problem outside. they go out quite often. You can change this yourself, Open up outside unit and the cap is the silver bullet with terminals out the top. Bad cap can cause compressor to not operate and also the fan. You need to clean the coil inside or at leat check the coil to see if it is clean. You can clean theis with a toilet brush do not go against the coil bit brush with the fins. You may need to call a service tech but try these options first. russ
