Question about Goodman CLJ36AR42 Air Conditioner

1 Answer

2 weeks ago one of my units stopped working properly. It got warm during the night even though I heard the unit running. I shut it off and called for repair service. They changed the thermostat and it worked again,until 2 night later same thing. I called another repair service and he found that it needed freon. For the last 2 weeks it has been cooling fine even with Fla.hot temperatures of 85-90 degrees. Last night same problem unit running and not putting out air thru the vents. Shut it off for a few hours turned it back on again, now it is sending out cold air... what is up with this unit? please help

Sounds like the coils inside the air handler/furnace are freezing up. likely cause is the freon charge is incorrect (probably undercharged). it may have been correct when the tech did the work but some may have leaked out. it is slightly possible too that the system is overcharged. you should have the system pressure verified, and then have it checked for leaks.

What is life span of rinnai 1001F propane heater? have had mine 10 years and it continues to shut itself off at night mostly even though just had entire unit cleaned. this happened a few years ago as well...


I often get customers calling about the same issue. I have found that the units have three gas solenoids that tend to heat up and close randomly. I usually chang out all three. Takes about an hour and parts run about $150. If that does not work, you are probably looking at replacing the PC board. The 1001FA/VA models you can still get parts for, the 1001FA-2 models not so.

Fridge on top freezer on bottom the freezer works but the fridge wont cool it stays warm


Hi,
Usually when this happens it is because of a problem with the fan that moves cold air from the freezer section of your unit to the refrigerator section. Either the fan has gone bad or the unit has frosted up to the point of stopping the fan. Try defrosting (unplugging) the unit over night and then check it to see if the fan runs. If not then replace the fan. If it runs and then stops after awhile like days or even a few weeks, then you may need a defrost timer.

I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!!

AC roof unit stops cooling after rain


No, the units are sealed and the rain should not have affected the system at all. I would remove the outer cover of the unit and access the capacitors. Your start capacitor may be bad. You can visually inspect this and tell if there is a problem. Small black relay on top of capacitor often burns out, if so, replace capacitor and relay. If this looks fine, then we need to start at the thermostat and work our way forward.

Thanks,

Jeff

Bath tube plumbing is making vibrating sound then shutting off


Replace the cartridge even if its new. The vibrating is from the internal workings of the stem. It also effects the volume of water.

When the unit does what you say does the fan motor outside stop also , if it does that means it is in defrost mode and should kick back over to normal after the system heats up the coil enough

Fridgidaire ac window unit


More than likely this unit could be fixed reasonably. It sounds from your explanation like a bad connection inside the control panel of your unit. Could possibly be what is called a cold soldered joint.
