Question about Goodman Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

My brand new HVAC unit is not able to maintain the heat in the house. The unit itself seems to be running fine but there was an accumulation of snow and ice on the fan unit. When I knocked all the snow and ice off the fan assembly I noticed that there was an accumulation of ice at the bottom of the assembly. The fan is running unobstructed, but when the overnight temps get below freezing, it's unable to keep the temp in the house above 60 degrees.

I hope the air condition is feet to your home ,if u have ceiling tall
the heat will stay high point ,and the air condtion will be on most of the time. if not
and the mode is heat
firrst:

clean the filter in evaporator (out side the house).
check and see if the engine of the evporator work and runing.
without wibrtion.
but the main reason is most unit hvac are not inverter,
so that mean if the tempratore out side is beneed to 5 degree Celsius (most of the time night) the unit will be frozen.
60 degrees f = 14 degrees c
you can defrost the buy chnge to mode cool.
other cohice ic to check the dieicer if u have it.

My Carrier Infinity system Model FE4A is leaking water from the bottom of the unit on to the basement floor. How do I stop the leak?


have your HVAC technician check the pressures in your unit...sounds like you may have low pressure. You should NOT be having any ice build up to melt off.

its fine you like it cold. an its humid where u are.
you might need a drop of freon as it can be low when over cold . needs to be no colder than 33. or 34 better for best run. sometimes you have to top off or remove some freon from a unit when new installed, the tubing length makes the variant usually .
that tray should drain normally . the exit tube is restricted .or freezing . try a water hose running up it in reverse anyway for a few secs dont drown your house. if u can watch the pan they have an access vent to watch an clean it. it all in how much you want to be involved in this.
is your filter too restricting take it off it should not pull at you or change much in flow w/o or with it.

Running the equipment on 72 degrees would cause the compressor and fan to work harder on hot days. This will definitely place more strain on your capacitor. These capacitor problems usually happen on the hottest days. I would suspect the capacitor, not the fan. I'm an HVAC tech, so I would Check both with my multimeter

I have noticed my heat pump is freezing up on the outside unit, we have had freezing rain and snow the last 2 days but I have never noticed ice accumulation on the outside of the unit, it also seems like...


In freezing weather the heat pump efficiency drops. The freezing is normal. The equipment has a board and sensor to defrost your heat pump. Now this system can fail but freezing rain and snow get pulled into the unit get pulled into the unit coil and freeze blocking airflow. You can defrost the unit by turning it to cooling. This is what the defrost board does automatically.

House HVAC Not Blowing


If the outside unit is running and the inside unit is not, probably a problem with the fan motor itself or its capacitor. If you have to have someone repair or replace the fan $200-$250 with parts, a capacitor for a service call and part $100 or so. Check it yourself first to see if there is anything obvious broken wire, hot connection, etc if you feel safe doing that. Turn the power off first. There is also a chance the thermostat could be the problem. Have you tried running the fan on the thermostat "fan on" setting?

Compressor valve failure


That is not correct. The system is not mis-matched. They just put a heavy condensor outside to get more air volume for your house. The failure of the valve is not to common of a failure but can and will fail. The problem with Palm Springs is the weather you get there, From very hot to very windy with sand storms to freezing rain and sometimes snow depending on where you are. What is the tech wanting to cahrge to replace the valve? Also this is something that should have been looked at closey and examined before the home was bought and that should have been known by the realator
