Question about Goodman CKL49AR49 Air Conditioner

Goodman thermostats 1c26-179

I live in a condo that is 1 of 4 in our building.  I have two zones for my ac/heat that are separate of each other.  There is one furnace that controls all the units downstairs for heat and hot water.  If there is a problem with the entire building, the management company pays, if it has to do with our unit only, we do.  This is important to know because I am unsure of what is causing the problem and who is responsible to fix it.  Both my units no longer work correctly.  Our upstairs unit (A) stopped working altogether and the management company sent a professional to fix it.  It was discovered that it was heating up, just not getting the water to make it work.  It was fixed, downstairs (I'm not sure what this means) but the problem was not in our unit.  The heat came on and worked for several hours correctly.  Then, the auto mode no longer worked.  I can turn the heat on by turning the thermostat up high and letting it run until warm enough, and then I manually shut it off. At this point I was told the issue was now my problem, i.e. I have to pay an electrician to come out.  We have made do for the time being because of finances.  This all began about 4 weeks ago.  Today, my second unit (B) is causing problems.  It appears to be confused about which mode it is in.  To make sure the heat works, I must turn the temperature down like I was running the AC.  The auto switch also seems to not be working properly.  I called the management company who is convinced the problem has to do with the thermostats themselves believing it a coincidence that I am having problems with two separate units at the same time.  I would like to use an electrician as a last resort since money is tight.  I also want to feel satisfied that the problem is not the responsibility of the management company before I reach for the checkbook.  And, if I can replace a simple part myself, I'd prefer to go that route.

    Thank you, this is encouraging.  I've started to search for the part and haven't found it yet (though I've just started to look).  What if I can't find the exact model?

    I'm not sure, though I know it is controlled by hot water down in our basement.  Does this tell you anything?

The problems you are describing do sound like thermostat. These are simple to change as long as you get exactly the same thermostat as a replacement. That way you simply put the wires on the same screws as they were on the original thermostat.

My comfort zone 2 thermostat and unit is brand new. I have 2 zones. AC works fine in both zones but when I needed heat only zone 1 heats which is downstairs. Zone 2 which is upstairs, does not heat.

I would call out the installer, you said it was new, so it should be under warranty.
The "W" wire is traditionally the call for heat which may not be getting to the upstairs unit, and if it is, then the unit needs to be diagnosed.

Good day! A condo suite has a programable digital thermostat operating on 24v for heat (geothermal heat pump solenoid valve) ac, and a humidifier to control. When the humidifier kicks the fan coil...

Hi, start at the thermostat on this unit if nothing else has been done as far as trouble shooting and repairs. 3 months doesn't mean a thing when it comes to a/c and refrigeration & heating parts. Check the stat operation, or replace it, and I am 99.9% sure this will solve your control problems.
Sincerely, and a good day to you!

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 PC060-1B Package AC...Need Wiring Help

Depending on the size of your Electric heat you can use one set of wires because your unit does not run with the heat like the heat pump. The large set of wires going to the electric heat should be used. You may have to jumper a new set to the contactor. On Goodman unit come in L1 and L2 jumper to contactor. Very simple good luck. Rus

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.
