Goodman CK36-18: Outside fan kicks on, but

Goodman CK36-18: Outside fan kicks on, but compressor does not run. There are two control/signal wires coming from the house. I made sure those connections were good. I here an occassional noise, as though the capacitor is trying to start the compressor. The noise is there briefly, and then goes away.

Sounds like a bad capacitor. They can be bad and the fan will still run. Turn off power and check for burnt wires on the top of the contactor going to the capacitor or on the top of the capacitor.. Check terminals on the compressor also. When capacitors go bad they are slightly swollen. They can also look good and be bad . Could be compressor but start with capacitir and wires. IWork on a lot goodman units. Most of the time it is the cap.

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.

All the coils on the unit outside froze up


Hello, if the inside fan was not running then the evaporator coil cannot absorb enough heat to vaporize the refrigerant, and the suction line will freeze including the compressor. Liquid refrigerat instead of vapor passes thru the suction line into the compressor. Lack of airflow or a low refrigerant charge is what will cause the line to freeze. In your case it was no airflow

My Goodman Condensing Unit will have fan operation, but the compressor remains off. I've confirmed fuse and thermostat status, and everything appears normal, just no A/C. Any suggestions?


If you mean the fan on the outside unit is running,first I would replace the capacitor on the outside unit. Also check the wires on the compressor for a loose or broken wire.

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

My Goodman a/c unit will not turn on ..


You have a short circuit in the outside system. Either a bad compressor,bad fan motor or possibly a bad capacitor. Visually examine the capacitor. If it is bulged out anywhere,replace it. Check for burned wires on the capacitor and all other connections.
Remove the compressors wires from the circuit and restart the unit. If the fan runs the problem is in the compressor. If the fan does not run,the problem is with the fan motor.

Compressor will not start, GSC14-14 SEER


Control wires come from the thermostat to power the contactor coil. At the thermostat the red wire must power (switch) the yellow wire to make the contactor pull in to run the outside unit, Check power with a ac volt meter between the red wire and the yellow wire, with the heat/cool switch turned to off. If you do not have 24 volts ac, your wire may have an open from the thermostat to the outside unit, your transformer may be bad and not supplying power, or your contactor coil may be open

Blowing hot air, compressor not kicking on, just fan ? ?


are you speaking of the outside fan or inside? compressor should be a little warm but not boiling hot. the unit could be low on freon. if low it will run a while but the compressor will overheat and shut off leaving the fan running by itself ouside. if nothing outside is running check power. if you have power check the contacted outside to make sure it's pulled in. contacters are bad about going out on goodman untis. Also ants can get under contacts.

Blower in house runs, but compressor outside does not


Sounds like control voltage problem. Tsat mat be bad. It is hard to say without looking. Next time this happens. Have someone stands out side by the unit to see if the contactor is pulling in. When you turn the Tstat off and wait and turn it on you may be manually make the contact in the Tstat. If the fan and compressor are not running when you call for cool, Most of the time it is the control voltage. Let me know if the outside fan runs and the compressor does not. Rusty
