Question about Goodman CKL60AR60 Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Yes, I recently put in a new central air unit. I used copper tubbing which what 3/4. But my first mistake I used some tubbing off of my old unit, trying to save a penny. It worked fine for a bit but eventually blew, I think because of all the pressure from the 90 degree elbow I put on it. Anyway, I replaced it with 3/4 tubbing and and put a coupling to inter join to th other tubbing. I solder and solder each joint but when I put a vaccum on it, it will not hold. So,I am wondering could a hole developed somewhere else or I just not soldering good enough. How can I find the leak on this system? I was told that the air condition peeps us dye. Can you get a hold of that with out a license? If so, please if you would, give some advice. Cause, its hot. Thks!

Sounds like it is turning into a mess you can make a soap solution over the joints with a little pressure the leak will bubble once you get your leaks fixed pull a real good vacuum couple hours and change your vacuum pump oil. good luck that's a lot of info for free. Tom

Does anyone know how much I can get for the coils at a metal scrap yard about AC unit?


It really depends on the prices of metal in the stock market. The best thing to do is call the scrap yard and ask since the prices change regularly. Recently, the price was around $1.70 a lb. for coils.

Need to change a broken blower motor in RUUD central air unit. Old central air blower motor (GE electric) was connected with brown and orange wire to 15 MHD capacitor. Another orange wire from central air...


on the motor should be a diagram detailing the wires. brown white goes to either side of the capacitor and brown wire to other side of capacitor. hi speed goes to normally open contact on the indoor fan relay and the wire designated common on the motor goes to the other side of power from the relay contacts.

I have central air and I was wondering how do you put freon in it because its not blowing out cool air


Is the compressor starting? On the outdoor unit you will see a large copper pipe and a small copper pipe. Is the larger of the two cold to the touch? wet? Just because a central air system is not blowing cool air does not mean it needs freon. If you have clogged filters it cannot do an air exchange. So, I would recommend checking the easiest things first before adding Freon.Most people make the mistake of adding Freon and overcharge their system. In a low load situation you can slug the compressor with liquid and your system is ruined. If you do have to add Freon it indicates that you have a leak. An AC System is a closed system and if it is working properly you should not have to add Freon.

My outside unit runs a little while then shuts off.


More likely the out door fan motor has bad bearings and that would cause the out door unit to run for 15 to 20 min but it could be low on freon
when the out door unit runs after 3 to 5 min the larger of the two copper lines going into the unit should be ice cold

If the thermostat you just installed has a time delay that will keep the indoor blower motor running for up to 5 min after the unit shuts off

I have a GE central air conditioner model


If you are talking about the indoor fan it is probably a bad capacitor. Replace the fan motor capacitor. And YES, if the fan motor needs replacing too, you can DO-IT-YOURSELF.

Central Air not cooling properly


This tubbing carries the refrigerant. The small line is flowing to their inside air handler. If the line is hot it is an indication that the outside unit is not able to release the heat. The most common reason is that the coil (looks like a car radiator) is dirty or plugged. This can be cleaned with a brush or sometimes a garden hose. They do make acid type cleaners for doing this, but the use of the acids are restricted in some areas.

By the way the other black pipe should have a larger copper line behind the black insulation. That line should be cold and sweaty like a nice glass of ice tea:)
