First off, the unit shouldn't be running continuously for an hour, that's a sign of the unit being undersized for the house. So, therefor the house is probably heating up so quickly that the compressor doesn't have time to equal out pressures to restart again, especially in the 100 degrees.

I have a Goodman CK18-1B ac unit.outside fan will run for awhile then just shut off, compressor stays running like it should


Are you heating or cooling? If cooling is the compressor overheating? Some outdoor fans run only when condenser reaches a certain temperature. If it is in fact a problem, a capacitor is much cheaper than a motor. Replace the cap, if it fixed it, awesome, if not, you compressor will be happy. Honestly does sound like the motor but go cap first. Best wishes!!

How frequently should the compressor run on a fridge?


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

The model number provided does not register. Your model number is located on the inside wall of your fresh food section.

Your freezer is your only source of cooling. It will meet its setting before meeting the refrigerator temperature.

The normal setting are -2 to +2 degrees F. for the freezer and 35 -40 degrees F. for your fresh food section.

Your freezer will go about 10 degrees F. above the set temperature. Then when it reaches 10 degrees F. below the set temperature the compressor will kick in.

You have condensing coils either under your unit or a canister in the back which gets ride of the heat. When the condensing coil is plugged up with dust, this could affect your cooling by as much as 40 degrees.

I do not think this is your total problem.

Feel the face of your separator wall between your freezer and fresh food section. Is it hot?

Your problem is your condenser fan in the lower right back of you unit is burned out.

So, you can not dissipate the heat.

Remove the lower back cover. Take a common household fan to blow air under your unit.

Your compressor is running to make up for the heat that the condenser fan can not dissipate.

Details I have a problem with a Goodman Model GSH130601AA, ( 5 Ton, 13 Seer heat pump) central air unit, installed 06/15/2006. (I know, I saw online reviews but unit was put in before I saw negative e


The fan motor is bad and needs replaced. Depending on how mechanically inclined you are, you can replace it yourself fairly easy, the hardest part being the fan blade without a hub puller. Just take your old one in with you to a local A/C supply store. The compressor is more than likely kicked off on thermal protection because of the fan motor, happens every time. After the compressor cools back down, the overload kicks back in and the compressor will start. I would also replace the capacitor while I was there, just for preventive maintience because they go out all the time, plus they are cheap. Just make sure you have the full 220v to the unit before diagnosing the problem, and make sure it is completely off when working on it, capacitors hold a charge, just in case you didn't know already. As for the Goodman problem, people never give the full story behind these units. For one, it may say Goodman on the cover, but the motor and compressor are made by the same companies other brands use, just look at the compressor brand, probably a Copeland or a Bristol used in various brands. Two, the reason that there are more negative things said about these units are simple, more units sold, more people have them, there will obviously be more to talk about. Kind of like more money, more problems. Nothing is built like it was 15 to 20 years ago. Goodman keeps their price low by not advertising for the most part. And then you have units like Lennox that are supposed to be good, cost more to buy, and absolutely too expensive when repairing and finding parts. Just so you don't think I'm a Goodman rep or anything, I prefer American Standard equipment over anything else Ha! This is of course all from a service aspect from dealing with this everyday, but still just an opinion. I hope I have helped you and get you to cooler days, and sorry about going on and on, just thought you might like a view from someone on the inside! Have a good one and good luck!

Goodman model CLJ30-1D humming but not cooling? Help it's 9pm and 100 degrees outside


Hello, so both the fan and compressor were not running? Sound like the capacitor is bad, usually when the temp gets that hot the capacitor overheats and goes bad. The capacitor is located in the outdoor unit inside the control panel, it looks like a round or oval can with wires connected to it.

Goodman central air conditioner not blowing normally


It sounds like the compressor is not coming on in the outside unit. If it worked fine and was cooling before, then your compressor probably over-heated and tripped the internal overload switch which causes it to stay off while everything else is working. The most common cause of your compressor over heating is an incorrect refrigerant charge, though it could be a few other things like a restriction in the copper line set. You will be able to hear the fan motor and the compressor kick on if you listen close while the system first turns on. If the compressor is over-heated, then after it cools to a save temperature, it will come on again, but only till it over-heats again. I would have the charge checked on the system, but remember that if the compressor is over-heated when the technician gets there, there is nothing he can do until it cools down and time is money! It's best to not run it until the problem gets figured out. Hope this helps and points you in the right direction. Good luck!

Air conditioner constantly running, not cooling house


Check and see if it is froze up. Check big line at outside unit for ice. check filter and replace as needed. Check outside fan to see if it is running. Wash out outside coil If fan and compressor are running and has hot small line at outside unit. If not froze up and coil is clean you will need to call in a pro. If compress over heated you may need to wait for it to restart if coil was dirty. Again make sure out door fan and or unit is running and clean.

Compressor fan not running


Does it look like the coils are frosting over? Is it steaming? Keep watching, after about 30 min does the fan come back on?

If yes to any/all the above then the unit is probably in defrost mode and yes the fan will stop blowing during that time, but restart when the unit goes back into regular heat mode.

During this time you will likely notice warmer heat from the vents than normal and the "AUX or EM HEAT" light will be on.

That is your backup heat system. It should automatically come on during a defrost cycle.

This is my first central heating and cooling unit the heat will come on and heat the house but the big fan inside the unit is not running like it did when we would run the ac is this normal


I assume you are reffering to the compressor outside not running. If so this is for A/C only. In fact once the cold is here to stay you should shut off the compressor "breaker" (located either outide next to unit or in fuse panel) and get a good quality cover for winter. This will keep the leaves and snow out of the unit. Just dont forget to take it off in the summer before you run the A/C or you will damage the system.

Goodman compressor cuts off when temp too high


I believe you have 1 of 2 problems going on here your system may be overcharged causing the compressor to cut out on a overload relay circuit internally, or it also could be tripping out a high pressure switch which could be from an overcharged system or a dirty condenser. I would have the tech come out on a 90 degree day and put the gauges on and check the pressures while it is operating under a full load.

Hope this helps you.
