You said the outdoor fan is not running, can you hear the compressor running? If you can hear the compressor running then start by checking the fan capacitor. If you can't hear the compressor, then check the breakers or fuses or disconnect. One of these should be located near the outside unit. If you look at the contactor you can see the contacts. When the unit is off they should not be touching, when it is on then the moveable contacts should be pulled down and touching the stationary contacts. You can get some on at the thermostat while you watch the contactor to see if it moves when they change the thermostat to call for a/c. Let me know what you find and I can give you more advice.

Will goodman outdoor ac work with bryant indoor unit


This is true as long as it is not a heat pump. Make sure they replace the piston (metering device to match the outdoor units required piston size. Or if the indoor coil is metered via TXV, it will automatically meter the refrigerant flow. If you are mismatching a system, make sure an acid test is performed on the old refrigerant and take appropriate measures with the new system if the test shows positive acid. They need to definitely install a liquid line drier.

I have a bryant fin. 15 years old. not getting cool air.i change the fiter.the fan is blowing.


Check the power to the outdoor AC...make sure it is running. If it is, someone will need to check to make sure the compressor is running and that the temperatures & pressures are good.

I think you may have 2 problems. Thje outdoor fan not coming on would cause the compressor to either go out on high discharge pressure or internal overload. Either the fan is bad or the capacitor is bad or both, which can be replaced.
The second problem is either the unit froze up on you and for the short time that it will cool before it quits. You may want to make sure you cool speed for your indoor unit is set to hi cool speed which is usually black

No cool air coming out of home air conditioner


Unless your compressor is burnt up, you probably don't need a new unit. If it's a 1998 it's not that old and you can get parts, the only thing is it's probably R-22 refrigerant and they must fix the leak in the unit if that's the problem before adding refrigerant and the refrigerant is expensive.. All they have in a heating and cooling system, that needs replaced, are a few parts. Outdoor unit has a fan motor,compressor, capacitors fan and compressor and a contactor. Furnace has a blower motor, capacitor, gas valve, fan and limit or furnace control board, which they still make replacement parts for.
My advice would be to call some more HVAC companies, till you find one, that is willing to fix your unit and not replace it..

What is the part number for the outdoor fan motor?


as old as this unit is you probably cannot read the label on the motor it is either a 1/4 or 1/3 horse power 230 volt motor. a generic motor will work fine, use a 1/3 to be sure. also replace the capacitor so it matches the new motor. if you can read the label the part number is on it, should be an HK # with about 7 more digits

Bryant Legacy Line air conditioning not blowing cool air..


Your outdoor condenser is in heat mode. Check the wires on the thermostat. Sounds like a small wiring problem and nothing else. Good luck. Please keep me posted as to you progress.

You are going to have to increase the amount of heat absorbed by the evaporator coil on the indoor section of your system. First change the filter. Second turn the power off to the outdoor section and leave the indoor fan running until all the ice on the evaporator coil has thawed this could take a few hours. Third you need to verify that you are getting adequate airflow across the indoor evaporator coil and the outdoor condenser coil both fans should be spinning at full speed and airflow should be unobstructed by dirty coil fins or debris Hopefully after you've done this you will have cold air blowing inside and the larger of the two lines entering the unit outside will be cool to the touch but not frozen or even frosted regardless of run time and the small one should be the slightly warm but not hot. If the larger line continues to freeze then it could indicate a number of problems but essentially your condensers cooling capacity is outrunning your evaporator coils ability to absorb heat from air stream circulating in your home.Hope it works out for you GL!

Do you have any frost on the lines going to the outside unit. If the large line is frosted your evaporator (Cooling coil in the furnace) could be frozen up. Operating it with the fan in automatic with the cooling on will sometimes be the cause of this condition.

If there is not frost on the large line going to the outside unit and you are getting air circulation inside the house the problem could be a loss of refrigerant charge. Look at the joints where the pipes were soldered to the inside and outside units for signs of oil. If you find oil at any point it is the indication of a refrigerant leak.
