Question about Goodman CLQ36AR49 Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Fan blows but not cold

We replaced the capacitor in our unit and it worked for about 12 hrs then tripped the breaker. when we reset the breaker the ac kicked back on and so far so good. just hope that the compressor isnt locking up. if it is the breaker will continue to trip and a tech will need to test the fan motor and compressor. good luck

Possible breaker is bad. Have an electrician do an amp test on the compressor which will tell you if the compressor is bad. That is the only way to test the compressor. I would change the breaker first due to the age of the breaker and (if it hasn't been changed out before) due to the amount of time the breaker has ran your a/c system. I f this breaker continues to trip I would have the units compressor checked on amps being pulled from electric service

My ac condenser keeps poping a breaker near th reversing valve


Before it trips, is it blowing cold air? If not, you could have a defective compressor start capacitor. Does the top fan spin? If not, its more than likely the start capacitor.

Duo therm brisk air ,does not blow cold air fan works but when condenser trys to turn on it draws 76 amps please help


You don't say what size unit you have. Does it draw 76 amps and then go to about 10 or 12 and you can hear the compressor running or does it draw 76 amps and the breaker trips. I suspect it draws 76 amps until the breaker trips. Confirm that the capacitor is niether shorted nor open. It may be worth your time to replace the capacitor, if you have one of the correct size available. If this does not get your unit running, it sounds like you are drawing Locked Rotor Amps, which means your compressor has physically siezed. There are a couple other posibilities, but looks like its time for a professional.

My unit was working fine until 3 days ago when the breaker tripped, I reset the breaker and worked fine for a day then tripped again when it tripped both the ac breaker andthe main in the trailer as well...


High amp draw can be caused by a few different things, so first check that incoming voltage to trailer is sufficient. (115 volts) Not unusual for some parks to install more hydro hook-ups on a feed line, and when all are up and running, your incoming voltage could be decreased. If your o.k. that way, then I'd start looking at the compressor circuit of your ac, in particular, the compressor start-up capacitor. The capacitor basically stores electricity and boosts it to higher voltage for compressor and fan start-ups to reduce current draw that will trip the breaker. Please have a knowledgeable electrician, or RV tech check this for you, as a capacitor can give a real good high voltage (possible fatal) shock, even when power is off to unit. I also suspect that the start relay has shorted (welded) itself due to high amp draw situation, and that is reason it comes on by itself.

I have a question on Coleman AC


First of all, an extension cord and GFI receptacle to run an AC unit will almost always blow either GFI or circuit breaker or both due to large current draw from AC unit. If an extension cord needs to be used, keep it as short as possible, and use the heavier gauge that is approved for AC use. What happens when you use an extension cord, is the voltage drop that will happen by the time the AC gets power. With any voltage drop, the amperage draw increases, so a 15 amp circuit breaker will most likely trip. Nowadays, all AC units are wired with a minimum 12 gauge wire rated for 20 amps.
You say nothing is happening now, is that to say that the fan only mode doesn't work on the AC unit either?

Outside unit trips the circuit breaker


seems that if it runs for 5 minutes there shouldnt be any shorted wires I would say your breaker needs replaced

Inside the air is blowing, but the outside unit fan isn't moving at all. HOUSE IT HOT!!!


Two things; outside does the compressor try to come on? If not you may have a switch\Thermotat problem. Also make sure the breaker to the outside unit hasn't tripped. If it has tripped there may still be a problem after you turn the breaker back on. If it's only the fan that's not coming on outside you will need a new capacitor or fan motor and compressor(if the fan motor is replaced you should have a new capacitor also. If it has been intensely hot your unit might have just gotten overworked. Then resetting the breaker is all that is needed. If you have continuos resettings you MUST call a qualified HVAC Tech.

Outside unit tripped the breaker. flip the breaker


Check the fan relay or contacts first. If the compressor comes on then your fan may be locked and will need replacing.

Bryant air condition fan outside not coming on


Check breaker for outside unit Also check to see if you ahve afloat switch on the inside air handler. Located under or in front of unit. It may be full of water and tripped. Blow out drain if tripped.

AC Fan doesn't blow cold air, frozen coil noticed outside, resetting power resolves temporarily


You need to call a reputable service technician.  The freezing up usually is associated with a low refrigerant charge or low air flow.  Check your return air filter and replace as needed.
