Goodman GMP075-3 Random Incomplete startup

Will run good for a day, then I'll come home and notice it cold in the house.
Sometimes, turning power off to furnace, and turning it back makes it start working for a while.
Other times, the draft motor will spin up for a few seconds, then stop - solid red light. If I wait a while, it will try again. If I power off and power on, the same thing happens, but the motor starts for even a shorter time. 
I replace the thermostat, thinking that I'm getting marginal voltage through, that seemed to help, but then next day, same issue.
I measured 29 volts at the transformer.
Since there is no light flashing, it's like it thinks that the thermostat says it should stop, and not an issue with limit switches, pressure switches, etc.

    I assume that the draft motor starts, and after a set period of time, the pressure switch is expected to close. What is that time period, cuz at times when I turn on the furnace, the draft moter spins for less than 1 second.


    My red LED is on constantly from the beginning.

If the draft motor starts then shuts right off and then a red light comes on usually means that there is a blockage somewhere. Check the pressure switch line, make sure that it is clear and the hole in the heater that the pressure switch vaccum line runs to is open. If that checks out then make sure that your flue vent cap is on and that it is not pressed down on the flue vent and that the gases can vent properly

    There is not a set period of time. It depends on basically the pressure inside of the flue to how long the pressure switch will take before it opens or closes. It should run for 30 seconds when all is up and fine until it kicks on the ignitor and run for 30 seconds after the heater is off to continue to remove gases from the heat exchanger. This is a VERY common problem among all heaters. The vent hole i the furnace is VERY small so just a peice of dust can block it and you are stuck without heat..

My furnace will not come on sometimes, if I power it off with pwr switch or access door interlock it will ignite and run fine for hours or days, then I notice it's cold and furnace not running, cycle


I have found this to be defective door interlock action. The switch is held closed by pressure from the sheet metal door - poor design. The purpose of the interlock is to shut down the furnace for service, a safety feature. If you bypass the switch, you defeat its safety purpose. Sometimes practicality overrides the need for safety.

If the power failure was due to a storm the blower motor may have shorted out. Check that the breaker for the inside unit has not tripped.

What is wrong with my Goodman AC unit?


Sounds like it has no power getting to it at all. Dont forget that some circuit breakers have UP as ON and some have DOWN as ON. Do not just assume a common way is always the same. You may even have to have one UP and the other DOWN as on. Check what the switch or circuit breaker has written on it to be sure.
AIR CONDITIONERS run like a refrigerator, they manufacture their own Heat or Cool and blow air past the unit to give hot or cold air to cool or heat the Room. These do not require flowing water.
Sometimes people (wrongly) call EVAPORATIVE COOLERS air conditioners. (An evaporative cooler just blows AIR past flowing water to humidify the flowing air and therefore "cool" the area)
An evaporative cooler therefore would require running water and without flowing water, the unit may not start due to the installation of a "fail safe" switch. An evaporative cooler would generally have a large box mounted on your roof with open sides with filters which are kept moist by the running water and through which the fresh air is sucked and pumped into your home.
There are varying thoughts on both, I personally consider the REFRIGERATED style as the most effective type, but they are more expensive to install and run.

I have a goodman 6mnte080-4. Home had power failure and furnace went to working intermittently. led is on 8 flash- ignitor or improper ground.. sometimes runs through full cycle--sometimes hot surface...


Check out the green wire going to the gas valve for proper ground,and also check all wires for good connections......... for the intermitting start / stopping and sand the fame sensor pin, this should do the trick.

Hi, just replaced the capacitor thinking that would solve the problem but it appears it did not. The motor outside would kick on the unit inside would kick on but the blower motor inside works sometimes...


Turn off the power to the air handler(indoor unit). Remove the access panel. From the motor,trace the wires back to the fan relay. One wire will probably trace back to the incoming power terminal. The other is the fan relay. It could be intermittent thermostat signal to the relay or a bad relay.
To verify if the fan motor is good,you can remove the one wire from the relay and re-attach it to the other side of the incoming power terminal. If it runs OK there,replace the relay. If it does not run,replace the blower motor.

Goodman a/c blower runs on auto and humidity problems


Is the air cold inside? You are talking about the fan inside? Have system check for freon but more than likely, it sounds like a t'stat problem. And it's not normal for the fan to run constantly.

Goodman heats but defrosts turns on before desired temp.


Yes. The defrost cycle of a heat pump is actually turning on your airconditioning to heat up the condenser to thaw it out. During this cycle your electric strip heaters "should" be adequate enough to compensate for the a/c being on. At about 30 - 34 degrees outdoor temp there is not enough heat in the air to to adequately heat your home with the heat pump only. Some technitions will use an outdoor thermostat to turn off the heat pump when it is under 34 degrees outside. If you are to cold when its under 34 degrees intall more electric strip heaters.. But if you do this your electric bill may go up significantly.
Welcome to the wonderful world of electric heat pumps (lol).
Good luck.
