But i was told it may just need freon. And any idea on how much this would cost ? I am in canada but all help would be appreciated . THANKS

R22 but it does not use it it is circulated in a closed loop, if the fan outside is running you may have to pull the brown wire at the split capacitor to see if the compressor is running. Also it is really important that the filters are changed and that the outdoor is clean allowing air to pass through. Turn off power before pulling the brown wire then reapply power for just a second listening for the compressor. If you hear it, turn off power, reconnect fan brown wire. Turn on power and feel if large line is cold to the touch like a good soda can should be around 45 to 55 degrees f. If not cold it need 3 to 4 pounds if the compressor is working which would indicate a leak.

    This depends. if the humming is coming from the contactor and is continuios while being called for yes it is normal.

    If it is a nice rumble low pitch its the compressor running properly.

    If it a hum than off than hum than off, its probably the split cap (looks like a can with wires running to it) which the compressor needs to run, it has a lable with the size I would guess its a 35/5microfarad 440v the five is the fan run cap.

    The refrigerant you will need is r22 and it runs 200-400 us dollars for a 30 lb can it will have a label indicating the factory charge up to a 20 ft. or 6 meters long line set.

Goodman cple30-1 heatpump. Fan spins. The freon line seem to have adequate pressure. My problem is it wont cool. Any help would be appreciated

I heat pump usually uses a reversing switch that is in the Freon line...and has a coil on it to switch it over from cool to heat...that could be bad, or the control circuit is not telling it to switch over...I would, while in the cool mode, chect the coil volatage and see if you have it.

Goodman Heat Pump laing heat and loud noise

Taking a little bit of time for heat is normal but the "pressure" thing you are referring to leads me to believe that the reversing valve is getting stuck. You will here that "pressure release" noise with a reversing valve but it should not be happening 5 minutes after start up.

99 dodge 1500 p/u has intermittrnt heating/cooling in the a/c mode.cools for about 1 minute then blows hot air for about 5 secs then cool again.any thoughts?

You may have over filled the freon. If the a/c system has to much pressure the pump kicks off and on. Hook a pressure gauge to it. Typically these rams take 2 cans of freon. Or 1.8 lbs i think. Your gauge should be in the blue/green area.. Not the yellow or the red. Hope this helps

Rv air conditioner problem

this is true...freon does not fade or get "used up" if freon is needed there HAS to b a leak.
heat strips are very expensive to use....option for the heat pump heating which will only use as much electricity as the a/c side.
heat strips= 220 v X 10kw= 22 amps compared to a compressor at ie= 10 amps.....typical draw for 18,000 btu

Goodman PC060-1B Package AC...Need Wiring Help

Depending on the size of your Electric heat you can use one set of wires because your unit does not run with the heat like the heat pump. The large set of wires going to the electric heat should be used. You may have to jumper a new set to the contactor. On Goodman unit come in L1 and L2 jumper to contactor. Very simple good luck. Rus

GSH13 Goodman heat pump split system is running a long time in cooling mode and will not cool below 74 degrees. A lot of condensation generated. The low side pressures 78 to 81 and high side pressures are...

Check sub cooling and super heat. the New ac units are very critical to charge. There is a charging chart on the inside of the cover to the unit outside. Check temp difference across coil. Should be 18 to 22 degress. If you have an ampmeter. Check the heat strips one 5 kw might be stuck.(sequencer). This would cause you not be able to pull down temp. Goodman unit are hard to charge to get the temp difference across coil. Feedback please

Extremely long time to get cool air with 5 ton 13 seer goodman heat pump which is 3 years old.

Check your filter. Make sure it is clean. Make sure the outdoor unit is operational. (power on). Clean your condenser coil with a garden hose. If possible check your evaporator coil. If it is dirty clean it. Your furnace (or air handler) blower speed should be set on high. All of your registers (supply & return) should be open and unobstructed. Check for proper thermostat settings. If none of this information solves your problem , then your units charge needs to be checked. You could be over or undercharged with freon.
Good luck......

I have a goodman acu model PGB030075-1A and it does not heat. The site glass is dark, not lit.

you can install a straight cool t stat that heats with the backup heat strip only. you can cool with ac only but using the heat pump reverse cycle will be a cheaper sourse of heat.have a pro look at it and give you some options. technology is changing so fast the best decision might be a new systemwith a new 10 year parts and labor warranty.
