First check the disconnect or circuit breaker for the outside unit. If that is ok then it sounds like you need to check the capacitor for the fan and compressor. You can do a visual check. If the capacitor looks swollen then it probably needs to be replace. You can also use a multimeter to check it. If you don't have a multimeter then take it to a heating and air supply and they can check it. Let me know what you find and if that's not it I'll give you some more suggestions.

Goodman Model CPLE24-1C - Two Units. One unit works fine, second outside unit will not engage.


It sounds like the run capacitor(silver can in control box) has failed if your comfortable around electrical you can change it; just replace it with the same rating as your other one. Make sure the power is off and write down it rating (i.e. 35+5 370 or 440 volts for a dual or 35 370 or 440 volts for a single).

I have a goodman gsc13 ac unit about 4 year old. When the temp gets around 90 or above outside the fan on the unit starts but the compressor does not. I had service check it out but that day they were...


It sounds like the unit may be over charged. Make sure the outside coils are clean and you have plenty of airflow coming out of the top of the outside unit. What could be happening is, when the temps get higher outside, so do the pressures in the system. The compressor has a thermal overload protection that will kick the compressor off if it gets to hot, which if the compressor is over charged, it will work twice as hard, over heat and shut off. You would need a technician to come out and get the refrigerant charge back to normal. Another thing that could be happening is a weak or faulty capacitor, which is a small round or oval metal object, found in the electrical compartment on the unit. This are fairly simple to change out if your comfortable with electric. I've also had to put what's called a hard start kit on compressors with the same problem, new and old. The hard start basically gives it that extra boost of power to get it up and going. I would start with the refrigerant charge and go from there. The electrical "humming" sound that you hear unless you turn the breaker to the furnace off, is the contactor on the outside unit having a call for cooling. The 24 volts come from the furnace, to the outside unit, and pulls the contactor in to power the unit with the 220 volts supplied. It is normal and you don't have to worry about that at all. I hope some of this helps and good luck!

Its possible that the contactor that closes to start the outdoor unit is not pulling in and passing power. You are hearing the coil humming since it is getting control power. Also first check that breaker for outdoor unit is not tripped

Carrier outside Unit will not power on. Every 45 sec's to a 1min it will make a humming sounds like its trying to power on but wont. The fan unit inside will come on but will not disburse cold air


You probably have a bad run capacitor in your outside unit. You will need to cal a service tech to test and replace it, until then turn your system off until it is repaired. Continuing to try to run it will over heat the compressor and fan motor and cause them damage.

The humming noise and dimming of the lights is an indication something in the outdoor unit is locked up or has failed.

Check the capacitor as it may have gone bad. If the capacitor is good, then you either have a failed motor, a failed compressor, or both.

Outdoor unit not coming on


turn on a/c and go outside. Listen to the condensing unit for humming from the compressor. If the outdoor fan and compressor wont come on, the capacitor may be bad and they dont have enough torque to start the motors.

RRUDD ACHIEVER 30, OUTSIDE FAN WON'T SPIN.


does the unit outside run at all,can you hear a humming noise or the compressor run or is it just dead.if you hear the comp. run or a humming noise then i would say it needs a new motor.but if you hear absolutely nothing out there,what i would do if you dont have a meter, is open panel on condenser and push the contacts in on the contactor when this is done its like jumpstarting the unit,it should all come on ,compressor and fan motor,if motor comes on then your contactor is bad (cost approx.$50.00) if it doesnot come on then its motor when replacing motor be sure to get a new capacitor with it (cost $80.00 to $120.00 plus cap 5mhz.$5.00 to $15.00) depends on where you get it home depo/menards/etc.high priced try granger or a local a/c distributor youll get it much cheaper.hope this helps

Heat pump not running


check your house circuit breakers first that should be labeled heatpump or outdoor unit
make sure it is on and or not tripped
then if you have a box outside near the outdoor unit open it up and see if there is a breaker or maybe fuses that could be blown

We had a lightning storm and now the ac wont work


Depending on where you live, there are electrical codes that require a 'disconnect' near the outside unit.. This is to be removed prior to servicing that unit and prevent the service person from getting injured if someone inadvertantly turned it on The humming sound you may be hearing may be the fan motor insise that unit, It is possible that the lightning strike generated a surge that damaged that fan motor winding.. With the protective screen removed and that unit disconnected from power.. try spinning the fan by hand to make sure it is free to turn, then reassemble everything and see if will start up. If it is a 220VAC system then you could also be missing one phase of power..You might want to contract an electrician for that aspect of troubleshooting. Be careful and goodluck..
