Question about Goodman CKL42AR42 Air Conditioner

Goodman A/C model ch42-1 cooling fan not working

The compressor starts but the cooling fan does not. If I slightly push the fan blade, the fan will spool up to full speed. The fan motor moves freely, not locked up. Does the fan motor have a start winding in it, in addition to the start capacitor. Should I just replace the capacitor or doy ou think a start winding is broken?

These motors start with the capacitor,that could be the problem in most of the cases ,but sometimes even if the capacitor is new they don't start or after a while they stop by overload.First try replacing the capacitor(no more than $10) and keep an eye on it beacause if this fan at the condensing unit doesn't work it could damage the compresor.

Goodman heatpump fan runs, condenser wont start


Either the condenser fan has bad bearings, or it has a defective fan capacitor.
Turn off the breaker to the outside unit.
Spin the fan blade by hand.
If the fan blade spins easily and will spin a few revolutions with no problem the fan bearings are good.
If not, replace the fan motor due to bad bearings.
I am pretty sure you fan motor is bad because with a bad capacitor the fan motor will not get up to speed and may just sit and overheat.
I'm leaning toward a bad fan motor.

Ac compressor will not start


Hello, sounds like a faulty capacitor. Check the capacitor to see if it is puffed up at the terminals. It will be located inside the outside unit and looks like like a can that is oval or round.

I have a goodman cpe30-1ab we set it to cool the out side pump and fan run about 5min and shut down the power relay starts to buzz and the fan moter gets hot real hot. all three wires to the fan have 110...


This could be several things. First turn of the power and make sure the fan turns freely using a screwdriver or something else that you can reach the blades with. If they do not turn easily you may need a new fan motor. If the fan stops, head pressure on the compressor will go up until it trips the High Pressure switch. It will also make the fan work harder so that it gets extremely hot just as you describe. Let me know what you find and we can go from there.

Fan motor or capacitor has gone out. Running the unit with the motor not running can cause damage to your compressor

3 year-old Goodman compressor/heat pump terribly loud @ start


Without being there to see it and have only your description in front of me, it sounds like the fan blade could be out of balance.......but it sounds more like a loose fan blade hub. Most Goodman units offer a minimum 5 year parts warranty. The Labor warranty is questionable, but the installing contractor or the Goodman Distributor should be able to give you that information. Of course this would cover manufacturer problems and not physical damage. As far as a history of this problem with Goodman..........I've seen it with every brand. If there is a problem getting it under warranty, you might be able to purchase the blade yourself. Before replacing the fan blade, I recommend disconnecting the motor wires from the contactor, tape off the ends and remember exactly where they were attached.....then start the unit to see if the noise is still evident, if so, it's probably your compressor. I recommend a certified repairman....not the one that quoted you $800.00. If you hear only the compressor start up and not the loud noise you are discribing, then try replacing the blade first.

I hope you find this information to be very helpful to you. :-)

Goodman air conditioner will not turn on outside


When ever you hear a buzzing like you are hearing means one thing one of the fuses on the outside disconnect box is bad. Only getting 1/2 the power. Find the bad fuse and get the same size and will be good to go. ken
