Question about Goodman CKL60AR60 Air Conditioner
Were freezing and compressor was running but lines are not freezing and compressor is off but airhandler fan motor is running and outside condensor fan still runs
Low refrigerant will cause this issue, as well as plugged coils, and a failed compressor.
Without gauges, all you can do to leak check is to examine the inside and outside coils for oily spots, indicating where the leak likely is. If you find any such spots, you can confirm by filling a sprey bottle with water and a dash of detergent. Mix well and spray onto the tubing, coils, etc. Leake will present in the form of a stream of bubbles, unless you are completely out of refrigerant, which is rarely the case. To check/clean the coils inside, trip the breaker and turn the thermostat switch to off. Open the cabinet by removing the screws. If you see heavy buildup on the air inlet side of the coils, you can get coil cleaner at Lowes/similar and apply. A medium bristled brush helps in removing the debris, but care must be taken not to damage the fins on the coil. Rinse thoroughly after application, following the directions. If you are cleaning the outside coils, again, trip the breaher/service disconnect and remove the top. Flush from the inside toward the outside with a garden hose, unless the debris is tightly packed and will not wash out, in which case service would normally be needed. It will usually wash out.
Compressor failure must be diagnosed by a tech. Usually, low refrigerant will prevent the compressor's coming on, that is, usually a switch in the refrigerant circuit is preventing it's operation. Less likely, but always possible, is that there is the failure of a component on the circuit board or power relay. Ants have been hnown to keep a power relay from operating properly, along with other components.
