Question about Goodman CLQ36AR49 Air Conditioner
Posted by Anonymous on
The problem is in the thermostat wiring. Y1 on an air conditioner, brings on the cooling. On a heat pump, it brings on the compressor, which generally fails to heat mode. The O wire operates the reversing valve, which brings on cooling. If these wires are reversed, or not hooked up, you will not get cooling.

As a certified heat pump specialist, I can assure you there are many things that can cause it to run warm or hot in the cooling mode. You have provided insufficient data and information to troubleshoot here. Is the system NEWLY installed. If so. Was it working properly and then all of a sudden started blowing warm air? Previous response regarding the proper 24-volt wiring is one thing I would check. I've had several customers in years past whose pet dogs chewed through the thermostat wire leading to the outdoor unit - and wire nuts fixed the problem. I've also found stuck reversing valves - some were fixed by simply switching the thermostat from Cool to Heat approximately 20 times while others had to be totally replaced. I've also found several customers who simply only needed to change their return air filter, turn the system to Heat for 15 minutes to melt ICE accumulation on their indoor coils, then turn system back to Cool. And, I've found other customers who had either not enough or too much Freon in their system causing problems. So, those are the areas that I, personally, would check on my own heat pump system; and, in that order. Good luck.

Also check some units energize in heat some in a.c. if your system worked fine then started blowing heat you could have a bad heat sequencer causing electric heat to run. also the reversing valve in the condenser might have failed otherwise check your tstat and change "o" to "b"
