Question about Goodman CLJ36AR42 Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Fan motor will not run.

The outside unit with the model number CPLJ36-1 fan will not run. I replaced the contactor on the unit. It ran for about 20 minutes and then stopped again. The fan would run fine when the orginal contactor was manually activated. What else could be the issue?

Make sure the fan turns freely by hand. It is possible it is overheating and turning off.

Our hear pump digital display is working but the top fan doesn't seem to be working.we have been away from the UK for and the unit has not been used for a while so cld that be the reason?


If you are talking about the top fan of your outside condensing unit, it could be several things. The fan motor could have failed, the run capacitor could have failed, or the motor is not getting power. Most units have a contactor that turns on the fan and compressor at the same time. If you only have one contactor, the fan motor or capacitor has failed. If you are good with a meter, check to see if you have voltage on the fan leads AFTER the contactor. If you do, I would recommend replacing the fan motor and capacitor

Why tempstar 5000 High Efficiency a/c outside fan won't turn off ?


Sounds like your contactor is sticking in your outside unit. They could be welded shut.

A/c outside unit is not working- fan will not work.


I assuming that the black box is a 100 amp breaker, which is connected to your condsensing unit (outside unit). If you open the box and pull the fuse then this will turn off/kill the power to your unit. As far as the buzzing noise it could be that the contactor is engaged. Hopefully, your fan motor is burnt out or the capicator is bad. If you take the access cover off and check for voltage at the contactor you should know if it is the fan motor. The voltage will come in at the bottom T1 T2 T3, once the contactor is engaged L1 L2 L3 will have the same power. Of course if your contactor is not engaging then thats the probelm, you can manual engage the contactor by pushing it in. There will be four wires two running to the capicator and the other to the contactor, these are the wires that control the fan motor. The other three wires run to your compressor. Hope this Helps Tim

I was leaning towards a bad contactor. Either sticking sometimes or not making good contact. I would inspect the contactor for pits or burn marks near the contacts. DO SO WITH POWER OFF of course...but, what's the reset button you are referring to?? I'm assuming this is a heat pump, please send model number!!

Outside fan runs constantly Aux Heat only 50%


Let's start out by your statement that the fan would not run, then you changed the contactor, not it won't stop running.
I believe, based on your info, here's what you need to do. Kill power to the unit. The 2 wires bringing power to the outdoor unit should be on the top 2 terminals. The 2 fan wires should be on the bottom 2 terminals. This is providing that the contactor is mounted Vertical. The could be an outside chance that the unit has a short in it and you are getting voltage feedback somewhere.
Take another look.

Need info. on a Tempstar Comfort 2000 unit.


This is a 2 speed condenser fan control board, the tempstar part number is
1086071, if you google tempstar 1086071 you will receive 1 listing for the part for something like 44 bucks, but if you go to sears parts direct and enter the part number they have a factory authorized substitute part number 1088977 that you can order from them for $17.49, some tempstar units were shipped without this control unit and the 2 speed fan just runs off the contactor on high speed only to do that disconnect the control unit and connect the black and orange wires that ran from contactor to the control unit previously together, and then the fan should come on in high speed when the condenser is on. there is a kit that they shipped these control units http://icpindexing.mqgroup.com/documents/086477/48201222001.pdf, (just for you to look at) so all you really need to do is get the new part from sears or run the motor in high and get rid of the part all together, hope this helps.

Fan does not turn but motor seems to be running fine


Rain should not affect an outdoor unit. It is designed to be outside. The motor that you are hearing... could this just be your compressor running? If the condenser fan is not operational the compressor will run much louder. TURN THE POWER OFF! See if the fan will spin freely if it is pushed. If it doesn't replace the fan motor. If it does you need to check the power at the contactor going to the condenser fan motor. This is 220 volts BE CAREFULL.. If power is going to the motor and the motor is not running... Change the motor and capacitor. If no power is going to it it could be a bad contactor.
Good luck....
