It sounds like the outside condenser wires are still not hooked up correctly or there is a problem with the 24v electrical inside the unit. Describing what you have, I'm just banking on the connections. Now, if you have a heat pump system, there will be more wires and a little more difficult, but a normal split system will have two wires going from the furnace to the condenser. These two wires should be hooked to the Y(Yellow) terminal and the C(COM) terminal on the board inside the furnace. If it is a air handler unit, then it needs to be connected to the Blue and Yellow wires. The two outside condenser wires can be hooked up either way, it doesn't matter. I hope this is a simple fix for you and not something more. Good luck and I hope this helps.

I just installed this unit and can not get the blower to run

Seriously depends on what unit you have. Model # & serial #? You can "jump" R to G at the unit. If its a standard Goodman AHU there may be a terminal block or just some wires that were factory installed outside of the unit. R to G will send 24v to the blower relay, sequencer or board (depending on model) energizing the relay and then returning to common. If you have tried that you should ensure you have proper line voltage 220-240vac. at the service breakers on the AHU.

5 ton goodman package unit not coming on

If you look on the install manual. It says it will work for a heat pump without backup heat. No heat strips.........If you do not have strips the guide says as follows

"PLACE A JUMPER (PIECE OF WIRE) BETWEEN Y AND W IF YOU ARE USING A HEAT PUMP WITHOUT AUXILIARY/BACKUP HEAT." if this dosnt work check the fuse in the air handler you may have blown it if you did not turn the unit off before installing.

We have a new Amana 16 Seer Heat Pump chpf4860d6da and every time the unit turns on the house lights dim for a split second. We had the electrician and local power company check the incoming lines and...

I think you hit the nail on the head. The undersized (to light a gauge) wiring would cause that problem. In most cases it should be at least a 4 or 6 gauge wire. AC Units pull a lot of power in their start up or peak cycle. Hence, the need for the proper wiring.

What makes heat change over to aux heat?

depending on how your installer wired it
when you turn the unit on, it could use both to get to temp as quickly as possible
when you are out of balance, the outside temp is lower than 20 degrees, not alowing any heat to be captured by the heat pump
or when your compressor goes inot lockout, but thats a rare wire situation
finally again depending on wire install and t sat as a user option

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
