Question about Goodman Heating & Cooling
Goodman GSZ130241A / ARUF182416
The Goodman unit now sounds like this during the defrost cycle:
The unit ran reasonably quiet for several months (installed Nov 2008) with just a very short clang at start.
New HVAC tech had a quick look at unit and is returning in a day or so when he has more time to remove refrigerant as a start in diagnosing problem.
Here is what he found:
40 F outdoor ambient - 73 F indoor
Hi PR 410 / Lo PR 96 Discharge temp 158
Air handler tested w/ actual measured voltage/current:
Hi speed: 19 F temp rise = 947 CFM
Mid speed: 21 F temp rise = 856 CFM
Unit was originally charged by weight (6 oz added) by different tech who said unit was installed correctly. They state that this is ''normal'' noise.
Could the factory overcharge (if that is the case) or other malfunction creating high pressures cause permanent damage to scroll resulting in this noise?
The unit heated (and defrosted) very good and the original noise levels were better than a neighbors unit. I was very pleased with it until it started making this noise.
Overcharged temperature split times cfm gives you btu's did he check static pressure .50 or less
