Goodman not working on auto on in the "on" position

My unit is about 3 years old. It seems to be blowing out cold air but the temp on the thermostat doesn't go down either.

    No, the outside is not running.

    If the outside unit is not running check high voltage power to the unit for 220 volts.

    The defrost board on the outside unit has a red wire on it, it should be labeled 24v.

    Carefully unplug then re-plug the wire on the board.

What is going on with our Goodman unit?


If your going to pay that much just have them put in a new unit. It is not that much more and you can get free financing. All the repairman can do is guess and keep putting in new parts till it works. Had a new unit put in and it still didn't work found out it was a bad thermostat. But at lest we don't have the repair bills or high electric bill anymore so it paid for its self in saved money.

What happen when your hvac blows cold air and the heat is set at 73


Sounds like you have a thermostat problem. If your thermostat is not triggering the furnace to ON/HEAT you will not the heat you desire. IF you know how to trigger the furnace you could jump your furnace controller wires BUT DON'T do this. Instead, get another thermostat and try it. But be sure to get the same rated thermostat... take it with you when looking for a replacement.
Not sure about everything going on with your unit based upon what you provided but your thermostat should show the current temp and the temp you set. It also show the mode that the thermostat is in (HEAT / COOL / AUTO) Manually select heat, then increase temp above the current temp setting. listen for furnace to activate or wait a few minutes for warm air output. If not, you'll have to see assistance trom a local heating and cooling company.

WHEN THE HEATER COMES ON THE FAN STARTS INSTANTLY AND BLOWS COLD


Do you have a heat pump? If so this is normal. You are probably used to a gas furnace. There are heat pumps that do have a delay though. Look on the circuit board in the air handler. There may be a set of pins that say 0-30-60-90 yours may be at 0. Also some digital T-stats offer that function for delay off to get the extra heat or cold from the system. Find out what the model number of the air handler and call the Goodman supplier in your area to see if you have these options.
If you have a gas furnace and it's not delaying the blower there is definately something wrong.

Goodman Furnace/AC unit not working 3a fuse blows even after replacement. once thermostat is turned on and clicks to start ac unit the fuse blows


3 amp is standard.the fuse is blowing to protect the transformer.It is telling you that there is a short in the low voltage wiring.Goodman also had an issue with the coil shorting on the contactor.To prevent damage.....i'd call a pro.It should be a fairly simple repair.

Goodman air conditioner not running


2 summers ago, exact same problem with one of our two units outside. contractor that installed the unit when home was built was not helpful and not able to come out. another a/c company explained they would not be able to make it that day, but offered knowledge that often times in my area (San Antonio, TX) ants get into the electrical contacts of the mechanical switch and block the current.

following instructions to trip all the breakers inline and checking this it was confirmed, i cleaned the contacts with pencil erasers (a trick i learned with model car electric leads) and sure enough it's still working 2 years later.

believe it or not the same year my water well had the same symptoms and it turned out to be the mechanical switch was blocked by ants also!
