    Unit seems to be running fine - but ac guy said there is a "refrigerant" restriction. Different ac guy said I need to replace 7.5 run capacitor. Still another guy said need to clean coil and $750 to clean coil and clean screen in meter device?

    Is the unit freezing up? Sounds kind of fishey on what they said was wrong. With a restriction you will be freezing up on the lines. Have you changed your filter lately?

    what made you call them? does the inside blower start right up?

  • Jeana Oct 22, 2013

    Everything seems to be workng fine. This was a regular maintenance call that started everything. I have unit professionally checked and service every 6 months. Change filter every month. They said "partial" restriction. Lines are not freezing that I know of. I am quite ill - emphysema - therefore I am very meticulous about changing filters. Also just had all ducts cleaned professionally.

    WIth my experience with heat and air if the lines are not freezing up then you dont' have restriction. Three is no such thing as partial restriction its either restricted or not If you have a restriction then your pressures are below freezing and your unit would be freezing up. IF the unit is cooling and shutting offwehn it gets to the desired temp I would forget this..

Replaced cracked heat exchanger on Goodman gas furnace( model# GMPN060-3) main limit trips constantly. Temperature at limit reaches up to 250 degrees. Downflow application, clean evap. coil and no return...

It may help if you increased the blower speed. It sounds like you have a restriction in either the return air duct or in the heat exchanger. Does it help to open the blower door panel. If so, you have confirmed a restriction. How do the burners look? Are they good and blue or yellow? Are the correct orifices being used for the type of gas? I know I am asking more questions than you, but it may help us with the answers. Good luck to you Wade.

Runs on emergency mode

By emergency mode I am assuming that you have a heat pump connected to the furnace. If so your heat pump is not functioning properly. For this I recommend a service man. To many possible problems in a heat pump to diagnos over the computer

Goodman with 2 thermostats, freezes in summer, no heat in winter

is the system zoned? if so maybe the zoning control board to the damper motor is wired improperly. when a system freezez its because of 1- restricted air flow across coil, (maybe dirty filter) or 2-low refrigerant charge. again could depend on how its zoned.
