Question about Goodman CPLE24-1 Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Goodman heat pump stopped cooling

Hello - I have a Goodman CPLE24-1b - Working fine when I came home from work last night - was running and blowing cool for first hour at home, then stopped blowing cool. Fans (in and out) run - capacitor not leaking or bulged - but not cooling - compressor hot to touch (took top off unit to reach in and feel it)
Doesn't sound like compressor is running. Notice a power dip when it tries to kick on (UPS in utility room for other items bleets for 1/2 a second).
Thoughts? Can compressors sieze like in a car?
Thanks! -denis

Yes, but I would try a "hard-start" kit before replacing the compressor itself

Goodman heating system


It really depends on the type of system you have. You will either have a furnace, high efficiency furnace, heat pump system, heat pump with gas or electric back up heat. All these systems operate differently and the problem that you are having could be caused by multiple issues, depending on which system it is. More info will be greatly appreciated. Make sure to check all filters and air flow first before going any further. The system could be over heating and tripping a limit, causing the system to stop producing heat until the unit has cooled back down.

I have a Goodman CE48-1GC outdoor unit, it just stopped working last night completely. I have verified the control switch is in fact being engaged when on A/C, however the fan and compressor are not...


A defective capacitor will prevent the compressor from starting. If as you say, the contactor is engaging, then it's either a defective capacitor or compressor motor. I'd check both, starting with the capacitor. The fact that the contactor is working, eliminates some other possibilities.

Where can I find the specs for an earlier Goodman heat pump?


You say 2 to 3 years... I'm assuming the unit is older than that. Especially being r22. What about the first 10 years??? Normally you will get 400 to 500 sqft per ton of cooling, but, that depends on heat load calculations. If the unit wasn't big enough you would have had this issue 10 years ago, not when the system kept running low on refrigerant. At first guess I would say a 2 ton unit is not big enough but if it worked fine for 10 years...wuth all that in mind, if it were me, (a seasoned professional) I would spend 1800 to fix my 15 year old r22 unit before I spent $4000 on a new r410a piece of junk. Best Wishes!!

I have a heat pump model ARUF 042-00A-1A. There is only air blowing but no heat comming out. What can we do? Thanks


Heat pumps are like a refrigerator. Check the "pump" part is working properly. and is cooling one side, heating the other.

If not - maybe run out of gas (needing technical repair and refill) - or a motor fault.

Heat Pump Stops Working only in the Early Morning


When the unit does what you say does the fan motor outside stop also , if it does that means it is in defrost mode and should kick back over to normal after the system heats up the coil enough

Goodman PHJK048 Heat Pump Package


ok...where to start.lol ....the thermostat is just a switch.It will tell the unit to run or not run.if you measure the temp with the heatpump running,the air is warmer than 68 but it feels cool to you because your body is 98.6.The unit will run more often and for longer periods when the temperature drops outside for a few reasons.First,your house has more of a load to heat,meaning you have more heat loss because of the difference in temperatures outside and inside.Second,your heat pump pulls heat from the outside air.The colder the air outside,the less btu's for it to pull.If you have anymore questions hillbuck29@aol.com Hope this helps,Dave

Goodman ac / heat pump


I just had a new unit installed and I am surfing for troubleshooting tips too. My unit is doing the same... cools well heat sucks. my problem has been isolated down to the reversing valve... It is constantly energised which means it is constantly in a/c mode even when kicking on the heat strips... We disconnected a line at the thermostat and it is working well as a heater now. You may want to check yours to see if it is actually kicking over into to heat mode... -rob
