Question about Heating & Cooling

I've got a goodman GSC140241AA ac unit (which is

I've got a goodman GSC140241AA ac unit (which is only 3 years old) and it stopped blowing cool air. The indoor and outdoor unit are working, as in turning on. I've noticed that the indoor unit is not sweating so I belive it has low freon, a technician confirmed and said it was leak from a bad evaporator coil. My question is should that part have gone bad that soon, and how would I replace it?

    I've called the home builder and the gave me the # to the installers, which was the technician that came out. They said all parts are covered but the labor is $800. I asked for them to break it down, ie how many man hours is it and the price per hour but was told it was a solid price, it was for the labor and the fee to go get the part. Two different answeres from technician.

    Would calling Goodman directly help at all, would they cover the warranty?

No it should not. If their is a leak and it can be reached the coil should be repairable. Replacing it will require a pro to replace it and recharge system. Not a user friendly item. Also may need a line drier and a vacuum pulled on system. You need a license to handle R22 and this may be an R 410a system which requires special gauges. But I would try to go back to the installer and or Goodman about the leak.

My AC unit model is CPLE60-1. It is running, blowing cool air but not cooling house. Any Suggestions? and what is the life expectancy of this unit?


Your Goodman unit is a five ton and should last 15 to 10 years with proper maintenance. Parts do wear out though during the normal life of piece of equipment.
Cooling problem may be due to low charge, broken ducting, or other low airflow problem. Need to verify freon charge and then go from there.

Goodman 3 ton outside unit fan not blowing


Motor, wiring and/or capacitor. If the sticker on the side of the motor isn't burned off you can get the motor info off that. Model numbers from the motor do little for locating the motor but my help. Best thing to do is get the AC motor specs and look up online (cheapest) or go to a motor shop. The specs you need would be as follows.
Horsepower-Such as 1/4 or 1/3
Voltage-Most likely 240/1 (240vac single phase)
Rotation-CW/CCW looking at the shaft end of the motor
Amps
Frame size
