Question about Heating & Cooling

My goodman ac is leaking at the base in my basement. The technician filled the freon R22 and it is still leaking water at the base. Checked the pump and it is working. No clogged or blockage. Please if anyone out there can help me with this issue. It is costing me money.

Put a level across the top of air handler you may find its leaning away from the drain. your pan primary outlet may have rust or slime blockage permitting some condensation to make it out to your pump but not enough to keep up with whats being generated by the evap coil. the pan may have rotted out if it has a metal one. some plastic pans crack from stress. if the coil has been removed and reinstalled the guide clips on the pan may me misalifned so your pan may not drain before it overflows. wetness there means you probably have moisture or waterbuild up in the ductboard liner for the return. i have removed 20 gallons of water from inside the box before with no indication it was wet until the airhandler was removed and i could see inside it. assess your drain outlets and pan issues by removing the front panels with a 5/16 nut druver. hope this helps.

SOURCE: GMPN goodman furnace: Water leaks from the base.

Check the drain tubes inside the furnace. There may be a loose connection or a split tube.
The unit could also leak from the gasket between the secondary heat exchanger and the vent fan housing. The secondary heat exchanger ould also be leaking or cracked.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: freon leak in my central AC line

depends on how big the leak is. there is a product out that does seal very small pinhole leaks. i have had success with this product called super seal hvac. you will have to determine system size in tons and what type refrigerant it uses. just remember if your losing too much of your charge too fast that probably means the leak is to big for the product to work.

SOURCE: from where normally freon leak in central air condition system

you need to use a leak detector , the points that has potential to leak is in the joints , fittings, but you need also to check all portion of the pipes. including the cooling coil, and condenser coil.

No it should not. If their is a leak and it can be reached the coil should be repairable. Replacing it will require a pro to replace it and recharge system. Not a user friendly item. Also may need a line drier and a vacuum pulled on system. You need a license to handle R22 and this may be an R 410a system which requires special gauges. But I would try to go back to the installer and or Goodman about the leak.

On a cpkj 48-1B Goodman heat pump I am having condenser fan issues. runs full spedd for a while then cuts down to barely running, Even after changing the motor and capacitor.

Does the condenser utilise head pressure control to maintain head pressure? if so is the unit fully charged...r22. r410 Freon.If the unit is an older model. the fan motor only runs at 850 r.p.m design flaw. The newer units now run the fan at 1075. R.p.m. I have installed many Goodman split systems and was having problems similar to yours. Hope this. Helps you

Bad condenser unit GOODMAN

it is a 3 ton condensor you still can buy r22 freon condensors new but they have nitrogen charge and its expensive to charge I recommend to go with 3 ton goodman condensor which is new 410a puron and also change indoor coil and flush the line set so you dont endure the high cost of new copper lines these new systems come with 10 years warranty and the r22 systems come with only five years

After charging ac with 1&1/4 cans freon and disconnecting battery to reset comperssor now it clicks on& off no cool air what next?

My Jeep did the same thing, i had to first buy a little can of dye at AZ and run it through the system where you fill the freon. It will show you with the help of a UV light if there are any leaks in the AC pump, it will glow purple if it is leaking. Usually tho you can't just fill the AC w freon all the time, a mechanic will have to purge the AC system. I cannot remember the name of the unit but there is a canister that needs to be purged before just adding freon. It sounds like that is what's going on since the pump is engaging.

Goodman AC drip pan full and the filter is wet

so you used a hose to blow it out but nothing came out? if so the problem is in the piping. you must have 1/4 inch per foot of fall with no sags unless you are using a condensate pump

I have a goodman Model CKL 36-1K . It says Factory Charge oz R22 . Does that mean it uses R22 freon? The guy who sold it to me says it uses 410a and was only 2 or 3 years old. The serial # is 040637071 ....

Hello, the unit is a 3 ton and was built in 2004. 0z R22 stands for R-22 refrigerant. Not sure why he told you 410a but if the unit says R-22 than that must be used.

When I turn on the AC warm air blows through and never changes unless it's cold outside. Do I need to fiil or replace something?

Most probably just needs to have the AC serviced and refilled with coolant. Since the car is a '95. I had to bring in my to get the coolant refilled just a few weeks back and it is a 2004. We used to just call it a freon refill, but they don't use normal freon anymore, they use a coolant/refrigerant that is safer for the environment, but this doesn't matter for you. Just bring it in to your mechanic or to your dealer and have the AC serviced.

They should probably put in a dye as well to see if there is a coolant leak, If so, it is usually a very slow leak and repairing the whole AC unit wouldn't be worth it. Either way, it needs a fill.

Good luck!

I entered questions for the split Goodman HVAC system yesterday. Two people responded. In response to taa43-Tom, I will get more local opinions & quotes tomorrow. Do you live in the Southeast? ...

Better off taking good money and put into something with a warranty. its probably a 4 hour job to recover solder in new valve change drier pull vacuum recharge If your system is freezing up it may not be the valve could be a check valve. low freon dirty unit all would cause the unit to freeze up is the company competent in working on heat pumps don't get some body that can work on you want in FIXED . from what you said in your 2nd post i am not convinced its the valve. Tom p.s i am in the mid west prices are not too far out of line.

Doesnt take any water out

Most dehumidiers have a "Frost Guard" thermal protector on the condensor coil. This protector will turn the compressor off should the temperature fall below 65 degrees in the basement. The condensor fan will still continue to run anticipating the restart of the compressor.
Hence, 3 things could be wrong.
1. air temp.of basement is too cold
2. Frost guard could be faulty
3. Freon leak in condensor coil.
Assuring that basement temp. is above 65 degrees is about all you can do unless you have it checked out by a technician.
