Goodman ac unit ckl30-1l outside unit won't kick on

First check the breaker to the outside unit. some are on separate breakers. If you own a volt meter check top and bottom wires of the contactor . If you have voltage on the top and none on bottom, your coil isn't pulling the contactor in. If this is the case, you are not getting 24 volts to the coil. Check the fuse in the furnace case. Hope this helps.

Goodman ac unit ckl30-1l out unit won't kick on

Three main causes: float switch is activated in the inside drain pan to prevent water damage, Capacitor damaged by power surge, (the top where the wires connect will be puffed up, should be flat.) Low freon switch prevents compressor damage when there is not enough freon to carry the oil.

Goodman ckl30 1d outside unit not working is there a reset button on motor..should I try replacing the capacitor...something still blowing in home but not cold...I never changed a capacitor is it easy?

it probaly is the capacitor you can sometimes tell by the shape of it if it is dished out instead of dished in. you could use a stick to push in the contactor in if the outdoor fan is not running. low freon could keep the contactor from engaging.

the best way is to contact Goodman and ask them for the model, in base from the detail that you have. If you have some wiring diagram or instruc. manual you can identify it. if you do not have downloa give your model +mark+serial number and proceed: +

My Kennmore 79363 Gas Range/ Electric Oven electrical doesn't work. Started smelling electrical burning smell, tracked to oven. shut off breaker, smell stoped. Few hours later checked again after...

The person who installed the oven didn't do the connections up tight enough.
I would replace the breaker/power switch with a new one and trim back the wires if the burning is in the breaker. If on the rear of the oven, same applies with badly tightened connections.
If in doubt, call a qualified electrician. That will be better than having a fire!

My unit is interrupting the startup and burning the 220 breaker, any thougths?

I would say it sounds like the compressor shorted or one of the three wires is/are grounding out. This should trip the breaker not melt/burn it. The other option is that the condenser fan is not coming on thus causing the compressor to overload and toasting the breaker. I am assuming that you have a 30/40 amp breaker. Once you install a new breaker the turn the unit on and see if the outside fan is working and is the compressor is running. Hope this helps tim
