Re: leaking air conditioner unit

The problem maybe the same I am having. I have condensation forming under the drain pan do to the temp. difference from the cold water on top and the warmer air below the pan. To correct this I installed fiberglass insulation under the entire pan to keep the temp. Constant. This will prevent warm air contacting the bottom of the pan causing it to sweat. Chris

Re: leaking air conditioner unit

I suppose that the water is coming from the unit where the blower motor is. Condensation is created by the evaporator coil while its running and is suppose to drain into a pan under it and through a pipe to the outside. This pipe could be stopped up. The easiest way to fix that is to blow air through the pipe from the outside. It probably comes out close to the outside unit. It could be that your inside filter is dirty causing reduced air flow and making the evaporator freeze too. Change the filter. That may help. There are other steps that you could take if these don't help. Contact me by email if you need to. Cant run over there because I'm in Missouri but may be able to help in a chat room.

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.

sounds like there is a Freon leak and has been since it was installed and is going off on because of low charge, you will need to call a competent A/C repairer, more then likely the leak will be in the air handler, should cost under a $100 to fix. Good Luck Tim

your unit shouldnt flood your yard .. now check your unit to see where your drain from your unit ( inside)is going .. if that is going outside where your unit is then there is where your water is coming from..

No heat, got great a/c....

W1 and W2 are the differences from the single stage to the two stage. Im thinking its your thermostat is not programed for 1 heat / 1 cool. You probably had 2 heat / 1 cool before.
