Question about Goodman CLQ36AR49 Air Conditioner
I have a Goodman Condenser unit on my heat pump thats about 5 years old. Recently I noticed an intermittent buzzing noise coming from my fuse panel and I was able to correlate it to my Heat pump turning on and running. When it first turns on for heating and thereafter at an interval of every 60 seconds it makes an electrical buzzing noise at the condenser unit, this causes a similar noise at my fuse panel. It sounds like an electrical short, but the breaker (40 Amp) never cuts off. I've turned the unit off since it's only used to heat the basement.
What would be causing this? Seems to be very specific to a 60 second timer in the condenser unit.
Any help or advise is appreciated.
You stated capasitor was checked . if cap. is ok sometimes start terminal wire will burn into at compressor or you may have a loose connection causing a voltage drop (more than 10%).If both check ok try a hard start kit. Who knows it might start. good luck

It could be your compressor trying to start but not being able to do so. It shouldnt happen that often but in cold temp the overload protector may cycle that quickly. I reccomemnd to have it checked to salvage the expensive compressor.
