This is a sign the compressor has seen it's last days. Sorry it's time to buy a new one.

Disconnect the power before servicing!!!
Check the capacitors. If there's only one, check to make sure it is not shorted. If there is a second smaller one, make sure it is not open. Sometimes they are dual (in the same case) but the same applies. If you suspect the cap(s) to be bad, replace with like parts. This may bring 'er back to life.

Good luck!

Condencer runs for 20 sec then off keeps repeting after 2 or 3 min goodman central system


Seems like it trying to start and then cuts out , possibly on overload. Try the machine on fan blow only , that will check the indoor unit to see if that is working. Then try cool or heat function while listening to the machine starting. If you hear a loud humming just as the fan starts, and then it cuts out, It could be a compressor issue. Possibly the start capacitor has failed.

My goodman unit (1994) makes the loud noise, like a buzzing noise. The unit works, the blower blows air into the house, the air is cold, but the outside fan that blows across the condenser piping isn'


you need to replace your condensing fan motor. the noise you are hearing is the compressor working against a lot of pressure because the heat is building up in you condensing unit. Prolonged operation without an operating condensing fan motor will cause your compressor to burn up, and then you will have the cost of a compressor changeout to the cost of a condensing fan motor.

1. check to make sure your 220volts is there at disconnect box.
2. check if you 24volts at contactor at the outside unit.
3. if you got it all check the capacitor.

UNIT IS NOT FUNCTIONING.


See if you can hear the compressor start, if that does not start and your fan hums, it is most likely your dual capacitor. If compressor starts and fan hums, it is most likely your fan.

Goodman Air handler blowing fuse if switch outside unit not runni


Sounds like your compressor in your heat pump is siezed . You can try a "Hard Start" Capacitor...which basically gives your compressor a kickstart and works 95% of the time when compressors get older....It's hooked up in parallel with the existing Capacitor...if you're not familiar with Electrical etc I would call an expert and mention what I said . If this doesn't work you will likely need a new Compressor/Unit . You could also have a short to ground in the heat pump side....likely the compressor is the problem however the original Capacitor could also be the problem

Have a janitrol cple24. Replaced both outdoor fuses and contactor and still have buzzing. What else could be the problem?


does the unit work properly and still buzz? loose mounting screws on a contactor will create a buzzing noise
is the compressor humming -try a hard start capacitor/boost capacitor
is there 220v at the contactor

I have a goodman furnace and ac unit the fan and heat work but every time i turn the ac on it blows the low voltage fuse ive replaced all low voltage wires to outside unit and thermostat i also replaced...


Look at the contactor on the condensing unit, remove the low voltage wires to the contactor and turn on the system. If the low voltage fuse doesn't blow, replace the contactor.

Goodman Furnace/AC unit not working 3a fuse blows even after replacement. once thermostat is turned on and clicks to start ac unit the fuse blows


3 amp is standard.the fuse is blowing to protect the transformer.It is telling you that there is a short in the low voltage wiring.Goodman also had an issue with the coil shorting on the contactor.To prevent damage.....i'd call a pro.It should be a fairly simple repair.

It is probably either the Compressor and or the capacitor that has failed. The compressor will hum and pull a lot of amps when it has seized up. Sounds like it is time for a new unit.
