Question about Goodman CLQ36AR49 Air Conditioner

1 Answer

GSH13 Goodman heat pump split system is running a long time in cooling mode and will not cool below 74 degrees. A lot of condensation generated. The low side pressures 78 to 81 and high side pressures are 180 to 200 psi. Energized and deenergized the reversing valve several times.Pumped down the sytem (pumped down well) and checked the flowrater for any type of obstruction. Have a sight glass on the system - will get clear then bubble up. System is in the second cooling season with clean air filters and evap. Not really satisfied with the first year performance.

    Temp difference across coil is 15 degrees at best. No heat strip engaged. superheat varies from1 to 3 and head pressure will not rise appreciably. superheat target at time it was checked should have been at 7 to 8.

    Someone, please read fully the original posting and my following comment. I believe that the reversing valve is partially engaging in the cooling mode, but want to be sure that the valves in the compressor are not the problem. As I stated earlier, I did pump the system down (pumped all the way) to check for obstruction with the flowrater.

    Will replacing the reversing valve solve this problem?

Check sub cooling and super heat. the New ac units are very critical to charge. There is a charging chart on the inside of the cover to the unit outside. Check temp difference across coil. Should be 18 to 22 degress. If you have an ampmeter. Check the heat strips one 5 kw might be stuck.(sequencer). This would cause you not be able to pull down temp. Goodman unit are hard to charge to get the temp difference across coil. Feedback please

Goodman gph1348m41ac unit is blowing cool air in heat mode with mid 30s ambient outdoor temp. I turn it off then on and will usually blow warm air but this cycle is becoming more repetitive. any expert...


A heat pump on the optimal heating day (about 50 degrees ambient) will only deliver approximately 85 degree air as compared to 125 degree air from a fossil fueled furnace. The colder the outdoor air is the less heat there is available to be transferred to the living space. At 30 degrees, the heat transfer capability is getting close to negligible meaning the run cycles will be approaching continuous and eventually as the heat pump along cannot maintain setpoint, the outdoor stat or stats will bring on auxilliary heat in the air handler.

If your ambient temp is below the 'balance point' of the heat pump, the house temp will drop a little lower and most times energize the heat strips through the outdoor t-stat. Your outdoor stat could be set too low for the heat pump to carry the structure all the way down to the balance point so when you turn it off and back on, the lower indoor temp automatically brings on the heat pump plus a heat strip or two, thus the warmer air. Second stage on the stat satisfies due to the heat strip, drops them out of the circuit and the heat pump is left running on first stage heat delivering the perceived cold air.

Your outdoor stat could also be not functioning correctly and not allowing the heaters to come on until the system is turned back on reestablishing the two stage call for heat.

Tons of possibilities and not enough room to list....

Goodman heat pump model gph1442h41aa will not turn on


first confirm that the condensing unit outside is getting power or even a command to come on .check function of thermostat your t-stat may command heat in the cooling mode.instead of the heat mode, being a heating system generated by a cooling condensor. also check bateries in t-stat. make sure breker in the panel box is on ,it is a double breaker usualy marked with an amp rating of 20 ,or a 30 on it . also check disconnect switch located next to your outdoor condensor usualy a gray box on wall of building. make sure its on or diconnect tab is pluged in . hope this was helpful. good luck.

Rheem split system condenser high pressure limit/safety needs resetting frequently before it reaches the set temp of 76 degrees faren. what's wrong and what do i need to check?


Is the outdoor fan running? The fan cools the coils and compressor, therefore keeping the high pressure low enough to run. Either the fan is not working or its not spinning fast enough. Check the capacitor, or just replace it.

The system is on in cooling mode and I have it set for 16 degrees celsius. It does not drop to below 24 degrees. I have it set up correctly but just doesn't seem to want to get cool. Any...


If you're running the dehumidifier at the same time as the cool mode. That's the problem. The dehumidifier mode generates heat and the cool mode operates at half capacity, when both are run at the same time.

To obtain a copy of the Owners Manual for your model contact the Danby Consumer help line: 800-263-2629, as your model has been retired. They can email you and copy as an attachment.

I have a goodman self contained heat pump that is 3 and 1/2 years old. I wake in the night to hear what sounds like the fan runnning and running and running and air moving thru the vents. Then I will hear...


Heat pumps are a very efficient design when working properly. But lose efficiency the colder it gets outdoors. I usually tell people when it drops below freezing to turn the thermostat to aux or em. heat. A heat pump can remove heat from 20°f air. But not very well. More heat at 30°f air, obviously, and so on. So the colder it is outdoors, the longer it will operate to remove heat from outdoors. And then, if it can't keep up, it brings on the electric heat elements to compensate. Now you are running both outdoor and indoor heat. This is where it's inefficient and costly. Also, the outdoor will start to freeze up. This is normal unless you can see a substantial amount of ice. The heat pump will engage defrost mode, cycling on the electric heat indoors. And defrost mode is actually cooling mode! The reversing valve in the heat pump switches to cooling mode, cycles off the outdoor fan, and defrosts for a set time or temp. So now your electric heat is engaged, and your indoor coil is a COLD coil! Not hot! Very inefficient. These 2 things are why your elec bill is higher in the winter. So it makes sense to me, if the elec heat is going to be on anyway, to move the tstat to aux or em. heat, when it's going to be below freezing outdoors. This will turn off the heat pump and use elected heat only. The only down side to this is, if you don't have enough elec heat to keep you warm, you may need both heat pump and elec heat. So trial end error until you find what works. Also, have a qualified tech check the system for operation and efficiency. Hope this helps!

Installed 18000 btu split system heat pump and condensing unit is freezing up in cold weather 15 degrees out side air.


Actuall, out door fan sucks fresh air to cool the condensor when it's on "Cool" mode. If it is in " Heat mode' if the fan should run only on pressure build up. May be pressure switch is faulty.
Melt the ice with Torch gun, and check again.

Fan not running on Heat Pum


That does not sound normal at all, I have a Goodman Heatpump and the Fan on the Evaporator (outside unit) should run as soon as it starts up!
The only delay you should be seeing is when the unit starts, the fan in the AHU starts 5 seconds after and runs for about 1.5 minutes after shutdown.

THANK YOU


Are you saying your air conditioner does not work? If so, make sure the ac is mode is select and not on heat. Then turn your thermostate down to around 74 degrees . The heat/cool select is on your thermostat. Good luck and keep in touch.
