Question about Goodman CLQ36AR49 Air Conditioner

1 Answer

I have a goodman heat pump system and the fan turns on and off several times at the beginning of the cycle, but not every time. And sometimes it bangs really loudly but not other times when it is doing this. I had the fan replaced and that is not it? The a/c guy said he does not know what it is? Any ideas?

Sounds like it could be an issues with your defrost control board this device allows the fan to shut off during the defrost cycle of operation in cooling the relay is in the closed position allowing power to the fan this relay on the board could have bad contacts a highly suggest calling a contractor that specializes in heat pumps and would also question why a part was replaced and you still have the same problem did they credit you any money back?

Furnance running all the time never shuts off


Turn the thermostats fan position to Auto instead of ON. If it already is in Auto, then there is a fan relay stuck in the board.

Goodman furnace fan cylcing


The fan switch is set to turn on at approximately 125 degrees and run until the heat exchanger temp drops to around 105 degrees. With age the sensitivity of this switch varies and summer heat can cause the switch to turn on if the outside temp is over 100 degrees. Only the fan is running, not the burner but you can shut off the power to the unit if this is an issue.

the fan would need to be changed also it may have over heated the pump. if it has been left for a long time in this way it could of done more damage. you could be luck and that the fan might be telling the unit control its not moving so it will not turn on. but to find this out you will need to replace the fan if the fan has 3 or more wire it would have this feature.

I have an armstrong heat pump and am curious about how the defrost cycle works.


Rather lengthy but here it is.
The outside unit(heat pump) has a reversing valve, a defrost board, a crankcase heater, a metering device(txv or piston) and an accumulator. This is what makes it a heat pump instead of a straight air condensing unit.
When in the heat mode the outside unit becomes the evaporator and the inside unit becomes the condensing unit.Before somebody corrects me i am just stating what is different in a heat pump.
When the system goes into defrost several things happen. First the system has to call for a defrost cycle. This happens on a time and temperature sequence. When the defrost board times out for a defrost check(the defrost board has a jumper pin to determine how long before the system will check for a temperature(thermal switch) is open or closed. This switch is in the normally open position. It will close at 35 degrees(depends on the switch). This switch is located on the copper line in the condensing unit. If this switch is closed then the system will go into defrost. Now for the good part. This will shut down the outside fan, switch the reversing valve, and the outside unit will essentially go into cool mode. Because the fan is off the compressor will heat up very rapidly and the refrigerant passing thru the coils will be hot as well. This will cause the ice buildup on the outside unit to melt(defrost). This will continue until a temperature is met or it times out. Then the system will return to the heat cycle. One other thing, depending on how your system is wired the inside unit will turn on the auxillary heat while the defrost cycle is in process. That way you will still have heat while the defrost cycle is in process.
It is not uncommon for steam to come out of your outside unit while this is going on. It can also be quiet noisey sometimes.
Hope this explains what you wanted to know. If not just reply to this with any other question you have about the cycle.

The heat come on turn off but fan will not shout off.


if you have a gas or oil furnace then the limit control is probably bad. If you have electric heat or a heat pump then the sequencer is probably bad. But first make sure the thermostat is not set to "FAN". The thermostat must be set to "AUTO". Many systems have a time delay on the fan to capture the remaining heat after it completes a heating cycle. Usually several minutes.

Heat pump fan does not always turn on when heat pumd does. Is this a fan relay problem? If so, is this something a homeowner can replace?


if you are talking about the indoor fan on the unit and it is a electric heater then yes there is a fan relay that control the fan operation that is common to fail on these units.. it is fairly easy to replace and can be purchased on line at diiferent heating sites... type in goodman heating parts in a search engine and locate the relay you need... if you are talking about the outdoor fan motor then need to check a few things there is a capacitor that helps motor start that could be weak /by the way there is also a capacitor on the indoor unit you want to check to .... it usually is 5-20 microfarads that requires a meter or tester that can check the farads on capacitor... make sure these are good... the outside unit will sometimes not have the fan motor run if the unit is in a defrost cycle but should only stay of for 5-15 minutes at a time and only if it is in a defrost cycle ... hope this helps you out repost if you have anymore questions...

Goodman air handlers (inside unit) fan have a delay timer that turn on the fan ,sometimes up to 3 minutes after the outside unit is on,this makes the a/c more efficiency.

Inside blower not starting every time


You have a voltage bleed somewhere or a short, whatever you want to call it. Do you have a control board on this unit where the relays are integrated into it or do you have the old type where the relay is separate? Anyway, you need to take a meter and take voltage readings to the motor when it's acting up and when it's running right. I have had the same problem with a Goodman unit before and it turned out to be the tstat! What I would do is remove the cover off the tstat and take a small jumper wire and touch the r terminal to the y terminal. If the motor starts right up, you know it's the tstat. If you have the same problem, then the only thing it can be is a low voltage short to the unit from the tstat, bad control board if you have one, or a bad relay. But if the unit is working fine in heat, it's probably not the relay. I hope this helps.

Compressor fan not running


Does it look like the coils are frosting over? Is it steaming? Keep watching, after about 30 min does the fan come back on?

If yes to any/all the above then the unit is probably in defrost mode and yes the fan will stop blowing during that time, but restart when the unit goes back into regular heat mode.

During this time you will likely notice warmer heat from the vents than normal and the "AUX or EM HEAT" light will be on.

That is your backup heat system. It should automatically come on during a defrost cycle.

Inside blower not starting every time


That's a weird problem. I wonder if the outside compressor is drawing down the voltage in the breaker box enuff to keep the blower from starting up. If you're set to cool but the thermostat is NOT calling for the AC, can you manually turn the blower on fathfully? If so, I would check all wiring connections in the breaker box to make sure they are tight and free from tarnish or corrosion. You may even need to contact your power company and have a higher amperage line installed outside. Do your house lights blink noticably when the compressor kicks on?

While you're resolving this, you could start the blower manually and just leave it on. The compressor cycling on/off shouldn't stop the blower once it's running and it won't draw much current... couple bucks a month maybe.

Hope that helps...
