Goodman heat pump not heating

I have an older heat pump ( Goodman model PGB036100-1A REV A). This morning it would come on for about 1 minute then shut off. There is a LED light that blinks 4 times when it shuts off. According to the back of the panel this is indicating that its a problem with the open limit switch. I called a service technician and was told to shut the heat off for a few minutes and then turn it back on. After doing so the heat has not came back on at all, only blowing out cold air. Any suggestions on what the culprit is and what I can do to fix it? The service tech wants $75.00 to come out and look at it plus $75.00 an hour plus parts to fix it, money that I do not have right now.

    Are you refering to a thermostat thats inside the unit itself? The only thing that I have seen behind the panel that I removed is the main circuit board. Thats where I seen the LED light that was blinking 4 times and the back of that panel had the trouble shooter codes and said that 4 blinks indicated the open limit switch. How would I check the thermostat ( assuming that I can find it...lol! )?

    I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM. MY REPAIRMAN CHARGED $190,00, AND STILL DOESN'T WORK RIGHT. HEATS FOR A MINUTE, BUT MOSTLY JUSTS BLOWS LIGHTLY WARM AIR. STAYS COOL ON ONE SIDE OF THE HOUSE, WHILE THE OTHER HEAT PUMP WILL RUN YOU OUT OF THE HOUSE.

    Have You Checked The Thermostat? It Will Be Right Next To Where The Unit Fires.

Just wanted to post an update and let everyone know that I had a technician come out to look it over and he says that it is the open limit switch thats gone bad. He was supposed to return this morning to replace it but instead he called and said that no one has that particular one in stock and that it will be tomorrow before he can get it ( just my luck! lol ). I would like to thank everyone and hope all of you have a great day!

My 5 ton Goodman Heat Pump won't go into heat or ac mode. Fan won't turn on. No noise from compressor. System is 1 1/2 yeras old.


Easy: Turn the "fan" switch to on at the thermostat and see if the blower starts. If no start, check breaker at breaker box. Check service disconnect at or near the air handler. With the breaker and/or service disconnect OFF check the 3 or 5 amp fuse inside the top cover in the air handler.
Not so easy: (You must know what you are doing for this part or let an HVAC Tech do it for you) Open thermostat and firmly jump the Y and R terminals to see if you get the compressor to start for no more than 30 seconds. (don't do it more than once.) Jump the G and R terminals to see if you get the blower to start. If so, u have a bad thermostat. If not, check the transformer inside the same cover in air handler for proper voltage. (24V. Make sure you also get 220 on the opposite side of the transformer)
If the blower comes on, but the heat pump doesnt start, open the side cover of the heat pump, with the thermostat on cool, and the temp. setting as low as possible for at least 10 minutes see if the contactor is pulled in. If so, check the capacitor and see if it's blown out. Be super careful these systems operate with 220v and the amperes are enough to kill you if you make a simple mistake.

I HAVE A GOODMAN CPL E30-1 , HOW DO YOU CHECK THE HEAT STRIPS ARE WORKING ? WERE WOULD CHECK THE TEMP AT ?HOW CAN YOU TELL IF THE HEAT PUMP IS WORKING RIGHT .WHAT IS THE COMMON THINGS A TECH SOULD CHECK...


First, you need to get the spec sheet for that unit from www.goodmanmfg.com, go to bottom, click on Partner link, then put in goodman for id, dealer for pass, go to InfoFinder in the Toolkit. under model, put CPLE, under lit type dropdown put spec sheet. Click on the RED SS number in the fourth column. In the spec sheet, print out the Expanded Heating Data sheet for your CPLE30. It shows the outdoor ambient temp, follow that column to the bottom and it shows the pressures you should have. They are very very close it unit is working correctly. It also has a DeltaT for airflow. So, now you can put stat at 1 degree differential so only heat pump comes on and check temp rise and pressures. If both pressures are low, you have lost some charge. As for heat strips, turn stat up 2 or more degrees or put it in Emergency heat. Then the strips should come on....sequencer may delay stages. Then you need to use amp clamp to see if individual heat elements are pulling amps. In E heat, you need to go online and get a CFM/Kw temp rise chart. It will show you what your temp rise from return to supply should be at your cfm with the amount of heat you have..i.e. 10kw, 15kw, etc. If it is cold out and your heat pump is running with no aux heat, the temp rise will get lower as the outdoor temp falls, so alone it will not be able to keep up.

I would like to know the specifications of my Goodman model CPKE42-18 AC/Heat pump system. BTUs heating and cooling? Thank You,


Many HVAC people talk in tonnage. One ton is equal to 12,000 Btus. Therefore your model specifies your cooling tonnage at 3 and 1\2 tons. Your heating would be determined by how many if any supllimentary heat strips are added. If you live in Anahiem or Miami that's not really important. But if you live anywhere that gets down into the 40's at night you'll want strips. Cooling wise depending on where you live and what your insulation is like, I'd say your unit is good for 1100-1300 Sq feet of living space.

Goodman with 2 thermostats, freezes in summer, no heat in winter


is the system zoned? if so maybe the zoning control board to the damper motor is wired improperly. when a system freezez its because of 1- restricted air flow across coil, (maybe dirty filter) or 2-low refrigerant charge. again could depend on how its zoned.

Goodman PHJK048 Heat Pump Package


ok...where to start.lol ....the thermostat is just a switch.It will tell the unit to run or not run.if you measure the temp with the heatpump running,the air is warmer than 68 but it feels cool to you because your body is 98.6.The unit will run more often and for longer periods when the temperature drops outside for a few reasons.First,your house has more of a load to heat,meaning you have more heat loss because of the difference in temperatures outside and inside.Second,your heat pump pulls heat from the outside air.The colder the air outside,the less btu's for it to pull.If you have anymore questions hillbuck29@aol.com Hope this helps,Dave
