Question about Heating & Cooling
I have a Goodman CPLE24-1C air conditioner that is remotely connected to a Janitrol AR24-1 (Goodman HKR-05) air handler. The unit cools very well for the first 30 to 45 minutes. Then it starts sending hot air out the air vents and the fan on the outside unit moves very slowly and the outside unit is hot enough to burn you if you touch it. Any ideas? Thanks Mark
Hi, Could be a run capacitor on the fan motor. They usually swell up and or leak when they go bad. If not, the only real way to test them it with a specific capacitor tester. A new capacitor would be cheaper. Make sure that the outside unit is disconnected from power before opening it up, try to spin the fan blade by hand. If it doesn't spin freely it may need oiled if possible. See above solution. Your problem is the fan motor though so if this don't do it, It will have to be replaced. If this helps, Please rate my solution. Thanks, kstfas

It appears the nuetral wire or improper grounding if its 120V unit. 220v unit will be a loose phase off of line one or two in panel box or unit connection. If this problem is common between other units it will be a factory design problem allow a single phase simulation to occur. Loss off phase would cause motor to slow down and overheat. Once outside unit is not functioning correctly where the outside condensor is not removing the heat through the condensor, you will get hot air through the inside mini split system.

Try this. Turn off the system and remove and inspect the air filter in the air handler for a restriction. If you find no restriction, go outside and turn off the outside unit by shutting off the disconnect switch. Turn on the system and keep the inside unit blowing for 3 hours. Then go back outside and switch on the outside unit. If the air conditioner blows cold air again it means that the inside coil is freezing up due to lack of refrigerant or something else. The slow moving outside fan could indicate that it is bound up and going off on thermal overload. Listen to see if the motor makes a moaning sound. Lubricate it if you can get to any of the oil holes in located in the end caps of the motor. At any rate you may need to call a technician. Good Luck
