Did you see the guages connected to the system? If the compressor comes on and pumps the line down to a vacuum then the compressor is working. It sounds more like you have a restriction somewhere in the system. Most likely at the metering device or filter dryer. You can use an ohmeter to check the compressor windings yourself. The compressor only has 3 wires, Com(mon), Start, and Run. With the power off connect one meter lead to the Com leg. Next connect the other to the Run leg and read the meter. There should be some resistance there but not a lot. Next connect that meter lead to the Start leg and read the resistance. It should have more resistance than the Run leg but not be open. Next you can connect one lead to the Start and the other to the Run and you should get the sum of the Start and Run readings. Let me know what you get.

How do I check the compressor

What I would do first which is very simple is leave the fridge on for a bout 20 min. Unplug it, pull it out, pull the bottom cover off and place your hand on the compresser, if it is very hot, compresser is pooped. If it is not warm at all then I would first check the thermostat. If the thermostat is closing properly then you can check for power at the compresser by pulling the little black cover off of where the wires enter the compresser. If there is voltage there 120v then unplug the fridge and pull the connectors off of the terminals on the compresser, remembering where they go of corse. Between two of the terminals you should get a low resistance. Say 1.5 and through another set you should get a higher one. Say 4.6 then through the last test you should get those two nembers added up 6.1 if your meter says OL at any time that means you have an open winding and the compresser is done for. If your numbers do not add up then you may have a shorted winding and your compresser is done for. Good luck

I have a Goodman Model CPLE24-1A, Serial # 0207416067. First, can you tell me how old the unit is? Next the fan comes on in the outside unit and it sounds like the compresser trys to start but cant no

Hello, based on your serial number It looks like the unit was built in Feb of 07. If the compressor is trying to start you may either have a bad capacitor or one of the windings in the compressor is open. Start by replacing the capacitor as it is inexpensive, if it does not work than looks like your compressor will need to be replaced.

I have a Goodman model number CKL36-1D, serial number 0103555264. When was it manufactured? I was told that it was 3-5 years old. Please confirm...clarify. Thanks.

Serial number 0103 = 2001, March. It is now 2011 so your unit is just over 10 years old or about half its life has been used.
