Goodman split unit that heats instead of cools

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

    My airhandler comes on every 9 to 15 minutes for about 30 seconds. No heat no cooling just moving air. How do I stop this?

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

There is no schematic or number on air handler .outside unit is Goodman # CPE48-1FB.How can i get a schematic for Air handler.


I need more info than just the outdoor unit number. The air handler will be a specific number. If you pull the access panel off the heater, there will be a faceplate inside with the unit name and model number as well as a schematic on the back side of the door.

Heating element does not come on when thermostat is set to heat. This is a Janitrol A49-10 air handler. Does anyone have some schematics for this unit ?


I do not have the schematic but if you take the upper door panel off and you will see what looks like a limit switch to the left and right. these are the fusable link connections to the heating elements. start there and that should be your problem

Goodman SSX16 split system not working


Defective thermostat wire.
Defective contactor.
With the t-stat set for cool and turned down on a low temperature, check for 24 volts at the contactor low voltage hookup. If you have 24 volts, replace the contactor.
You can manually close the contactor to make sure the high voltage is going through it.

Wiring diagam for goodman heatpump and air handler to thermostate


On your t-stat you have Y, W1, W2, R, O, G, B or C or X. Y is your cooling circuit and will be the same in the air handler and heat pump unit, use the yellow wire for this circuit. W1 and W2 are your back up elec. or gas heat. Depending on how many kws or heat strips you have and t-stat wires you will put the white wire to W1 in both the t-stat and air handler. W2 is for your second stage back up heat if air handler calls for it, this will be a tan or brown or black t-stat wire and goes to W2 on t-stat and air handler. R is half of your 24v control power from the transformer and is the red wire and goes to the t-stat, air handler, and heat pump. O is for the reversing valve in the heat pump that switches it from heating and cooling. You guessed it the orange wire connect to t-stat and heat pump. G is for the blower and is the green wire to the t-stat and air handler. B or C or X is known as the common which is the other half of control circuit from 24v transform it is the blue wire and goes to the t-stat, air handler, and heat pump.
