SOURCE: window ac unit is not blowing cold air

When the unit is running, go outside and put your hand near the condenser fins, this air that comes out should be slightly warmer than the ambient temp. If it is not you will need to take the unit out of the window and out of its outer case and clean the condenser fins from the inside, this is no easy task as it is very hard to reach. You will want to get a small (toothbrushed sized) brass bristled brush with a long handle. Make sure the evaporator coil (in the front) recieves the same attention and wash the mesh filter that goes in front of the evaporator. Re- assemble and enjoy the cold air.

SOURCE: Blowing hot air, compressor not kicking on, just fan ? ?

are you speaking of the outside fan or inside? compressor should be a little warm but not boiling hot. the unit could be low on freon. if low it will run a while but the compressor will overheat and shut off leaving the fan running by itself ouside. if nothing outside is running check power. if you have power check the contacted outside to make sure it's pulled in. contacters are bad about going out on goodman untis. Also ants can get under contacts.

You have either a faulty thermostat, dirty condenser and evaporator or a faulty run capacitor. Need to service soon before the compressor is damaged. Sea Breeze

Why does it just blow cool air?


Check outside condensing unit. Should feel warm to hot air blowing out of the top. If cool to outside air temperature blowing off you likely have a refrigerant problem

What is wrong with my Goodman AC unit?


Sounds like it has no power getting to it at all. Dont forget that some circuit breakers have UP as ON and some have DOWN as ON. Do not just assume a common way is always the same. You may even have to have one UP and the other DOWN as on. Check what the switch or circuit breaker has written on it to be sure.
AIR CONDITIONERS run like a refrigerator, they manufacture their own Heat or Cool and blow air past the unit to give hot or cold air to cool or heat the Room. These do not require flowing water.
Sometimes people (wrongly) call EVAPORATIVE COOLERS air conditioners. (An evaporative cooler just blows AIR past flowing water to humidify the flowing air and therefore "cool" the area)
An evaporative cooler therefore would require running water and without flowing water, the unit may not start due to the installation of a "fail safe" switch. An evaporative cooler would generally have a large box mounted on your roof with open sides with filters which are kept moist by the running water and through which the fresh air is sucked and pumped into your home.
There are varying thoughts on both, I personally consider the REFRIGERATED style as the most effective type, but they are more expensive to install and run.

The front ac unit has very poor cooling and left running, freezes up and drips water out of the ceiling grill. I s the unit shot?


Ensure the air filter and evaporator coils are clean. If they are clean and everything is running properly, then the unit may need refrigerant. It depends on the age of your equipment and the location of the leak (price to repair) as to whether or not the unit is shot. Check your air filter and evaporator coil first. :-)

Stops blowing air


remove cover at ceiling so you can see in at fins and see if they are frosting up bad. If they are, I suspect during AC installation, they didn't open up ducts on discharge properly and air flow is restricted, which will cause freeze up, especially if low flow from discharge ducts. I'm assuming it is a ducted system. You may have to remove or drop down entire ceiling assy, to see if the ducts into ceiling have any blockage. Sometimes they don't cut rubber roof material back far enough, or misaligned ducts and cause restricted flow to ceiling vents, which will cause unit to frost up, which kicks out compressor until frost is melted, then compressor kicks back in and cooling happens again.

Air on heat pump not cool outside unit humming but not kicking on


This could be an inoperative condenser fan.System will kick off on high pressure without proper air flow.The hum indicates voltage is present. Providing the fan motor is not locked up and will spin,Check your run capacitor which helps boost the motor voltage initially and will get it turning.If the cap is good,you may be faced with motor replacement....good luck

My window Ac unit wont cool, I had problems with the cooling element icing over but now the ac wont kick on the fan still blows, and Iv only had this unit for two weeks.


You are low on freon. There is a pressure switch that will not allow the compressor to kick on in order to protect the compressor. The freezing up of the unit is an indication of a leak or air flow blockage.

Hi!!

It not uncommon for the condenser motor to blow out, if evertything else is ok. The unit will kick in normally and you'll start getting cold air inside. Since the condenser is not doing its job, the unit's thermal protection will cut off compressor until cools down and then will start again.

Replace condenser motor (around $100) ASAP and do not use unit until then, othewise, major damage to the unit can occur.
