Question about Goodman CLQ36AR49 Air Conditioner
Already replaced capasitor
Hi, you have replaced the run capacitor already. Has the outdoor unit tried to run at all? You have probably checked the main breaker already to make sure you have high voltage to the unit. If not, do this. Also, you will have a disconnect box at the unit. Some or most people don't know this, but if you remove the plastic cover in this small box, you will have 2- 30 to 35 amp fuses inside that will blow . If one is blown, it will not run. I would recommend replacing both even if only one is blown. Now, if you have had high voltage to this unit all this time, and the outdoor condenser fan motor is running but the compressor does not start, this may be your problem. I don't know unless you tell me more on what this unit is or is not doing? All I can do is give you some things to check based on what you have said. When you say you replaced the capacitor, i am thinking you have power, fan on, but no compressor? If this is the case, the compressor may have a locked rotor, or may be shorted.If you have a voltage meter, make sure you have 24 volt control voltage coming from the indoor unit to energize the contactor coil to start things in motion. If the compressor does not come on, and fan is running, make sure you have a full charge of freon in system, and its not off on its low pressure switch. You can check this switch by jumping across it from one side to the other and restoring power. If it starts and runs, shut it back off quick and you will know you have a leak and lost your charge. The switch will be around the compressor area mounted onto and silver soldered to the larger of the copper lines.It has 2-BLUE wires connected to it. The high pressure switch will have 2-RED wires to it. What works best is if you have a piece of insulated wire with to clips on each end to jump it out. Leave the existing wires on the spades, you may have to raise them up to get to metal, and connect the lead. If its out or low enough on freon and the compressor is good, the unit will fire right up. Anyway, try and check what I have asked you to do, and let me know what you have found out. Try and give me more information on what this unit is doing or not. It is a 3 ton unit, I know this. About a 14 seer. This model has been discontinued, but parts are and will always be available for it. I know this is a long solution, but I need to know as much as possible in order to help you on this. Heck, it just maybe a blown fuse? Keep me posted on this. Best of luck to you. I will be waiting to hear back.
