No power will not let contactor pull in on outside unit - if capicitor is for fan and compressor and bad - neither will come on when contactor pulls in - low freon press. switch or if outside fan tripped unit on high pressure - could be manual reset - thermostat wires bad would not let run signal get to outside unit

Inside fan turns on when outside unit is in defrost mode when heat is selected. This causes it to blow cold air for about 10 to 15 minutes prior to the outside fan starting.


The inside fan will run while the unit is in defrost. The electric heat strips should kick on to help prevent you from feeling this cold air. When the unit is in defrost it is essentially running in the A/C mode. You should make sure the electric heat elements are working then go from there.

Goodman central air conditioner not blowing normally


It sounds like the compressor is not coming on in the outside unit. If it worked fine and was cooling before, then your compressor probably over-heated and tripped the internal overload switch which causes it to stay off while everything else is working. The most common cause of your compressor over heating is an incorrect refrigerant charge, though it could be a few other things like a restriction in the copper line set. You will be able to hear the fan motor and the compressor kick on if you listen close while the system first turns on. If the compressor is over-heated, then after it cools to a save temperature, it will come on again, but only till it over-heats again. I would have the charge checked on the system, but remember that if the compressor is over-heated when the technician gets there, there is nothing he can do until it cools down and time is money! It's best to not run it until the problem gets figured out. Hope this helps and points you in the right direction. Good luck!

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.

A/c unit outside will not come on.


More than likely, your AC unit is on it's own breaker inside or outside the house. If it is, it is very possible that the breaker is either flipped or blown. This is a problem I would HIGHLY recommend that you contact a professional for due to the nature. If you flip the breaker back on, you could cause a surge to the unit, thus "frying" it, or it could cause a fire inside/outside the home.

Weather King AC


The motor of your air mover in the inside unit has failed.
It is responsible for circulating the air through the exchanger and your home.
This may be located in an attic space depending on the construction of your house.

Running the cooling with this not working could cause your outside unit to operate continuously or fail.

A more remote possibility is that the thermostat has failed and is only causing the outside unit to run.

A/C quit running


This question is really to broad to answer. There are several things that could cause it to stop running. I think I would turn everything off, let it cool down for several hours and try it again. When you kick it back on, take note of what is running and what's not running. Inside fan, outside fan, compressor. If the outside unit will not run at all it could be as simple as a grasshopper caught in the contacts. If you hear the compressor running outside but no outside fan, The fan motor probably needs replaced. Please make sure that all power to the unit is TURNED OFF before removing cover plates on outside unit and before trying to remove insects from contact points. Check all wiring inside outside unit while it is open. Also check capacitors for swelling or leaking. If you don't know how to turn all the power off or open the outside unit, you need to call a professional AC technician. Hope this helps. kstfas
