Question about Goodman CKL60AR60 Air Conditioner

Goodman ac heat air handler starts noisily for about 30 seconds then stops. Condenser fan is okay. Inside fan works but seems weak. I can't find the model number, so I just picked the first one.

Find the rating tag on the motor for the centrifugal fan. Locate the FLA amp number! Using a clamp-on amp meter while the unit is at its full load running. Compare to the amp draw. If it is rated at say....FLA 28.6 amp and you take a reading of 16.2 or 23.1 then either the motor is failing or you are not getting proper supply voltage. Take a Volt reading of you supply voltage to insure there is enough voltage being supplied!

Inside the air handle there is a motor and a cage(squirrel). I am assuming this is the problem. The side that has the pilot light, take this cove off first, then the back cover. There is a switch so when you take the back cover off it opens the circuit. You will see a main board and to the left and behind is the motor and squirrel cage. I would kill power and then remove the bolts making sure I make the wires and where they go. Then just take the motor and cage out. You will need a allen wrench to remove cage, then replace motor. Hope this helps Tim

Communication problem. You say condenser stat and power are fine? if that means the condenser runs but the air handler doesn't that means the communication is good and the blower is not running. That may be a capacitor (you must have ammeter capable of checking microfarads) if not that check power it may be board driven. If no power to blower the board is bad assuming power is at board. If that is ok the blower motor is bad.

HE heat pump won't talk with old air handler?


The fact is, the air handler supplies the voltage, blower, and electric heat. In order for the heat pump to work correctly, the wiring from the thermostat and heat pump need to be hooked up right to the air handler. The thermostat is what tells which component to come on. If the fan stops, but the condenser keeps going, you either have a faulty fan relay on the air handler, faulty thermostat or wiring, faulty wiring at the heat pump, or the contacts on the new unit are sticking, which is highly doubtful considering it is working now. I hope I have helped you understand this a little more. Good luck and don't let them push you around, get someone that knows what they are looking at.

Were is the reset button on the unit?


Hi, here is the theory on the reset button on Air Conditioners. They reset via the breaker panel box in your house. Check that first before anything else. However if your unit is popping breakers, it is because the rating for the breaker is incorrect, or there is something that needs servicing usually in the outside unit called the condenser. That piece contains the compressor. A faulty compressor and pop the breaker. Or If the condenser fan that blows over the coils of the outside unit stops (common failure) The compressor will overheat and shut down. That may not trip the breaker but the house will get hot anyway. Usual action for this is to replace the condenser fan motor and starting capacitor. Make sure the speed rating and directional rotation for the replacement motor is the same as the motor removed.
There are other reasons why the system won't come one fully. If the wall thermostat is digital and does nothing. including turning on the fan. There will be a small fuse located on the circuit board of the air handler (part of Air Conditioner mounted inside the house. It houses the circulation fan). That fuse could be blown. That one shuts down just about everything.
On air handlers mounted up into the attic crawl space there is an overflow pan. This pan is mounted directly below the air handler. This pan can fill with water when the drain pain contained inside the air handler starts to overflow because the drain system to that is clogged.
There is a "float switch" mounted in the overflow pan wired to the system in such as way as to shut down the entire AC system if that pan fills.
The handling is to clear the obstruction in the Drip Pan inside the air handler. Then remove enough water from the overflow pan and the AC will run as though nothing has happened.
If you have more questions, write to me on this site.
One thing more. The capacitor alone in the Outside condenser unit can fail and that will stop the condenser completely if it is of a "split" design and used for both the compressor and fan. When replacing this unit alone, ALWAYS find the same specification part.
I hope this helps,
Have a Happy New Year,
Mark

Outside unit runs, air handler inside runs sometimes Is there a fan relay that will work sometime? can here freon circulating but fan will not run. Can cut off and restart, will come on sometime. ...


Their is a fan relay on combo gas heat and central air conditioning.
The reason is for heat you need slower fan speed than for air. How do they do it? They use a relay to shift the fan from low for to high for ac.

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.

My 5 ton Goodman Heat Pump won't go into heat or ac mode. Fan won't turn on. No noise from compressor. System is 1 1/2 yeras old.


Easy: Turn the "fan" switch to on at the thermostat and see if the blower starts. If no start, check breaker at breaker box. Check service disconnect at or near the air handler. With the breaker and/or service disconnect OFF check the 3 or 5 amp fuse inside the top cover in the air handler.
Not so easy: (You must know what you are doing for this part or let an HVAC Tech do it for you) Open thermostat and firmly jump the Y and R terminals to see if you get the compressor to start for no more than 30 seconds. (don't do it more than once.) Jump the G and R terminals to see if you get the blower to start. If so, u have a bad thermostat. If not, check the transformer inside the same cover in air handler for proper voltage. (24V. Make sure you also get 220 on the opposite side of the transformer)
If the blower comes on, but the heat pump doesnt start, open the side cover of the heat pump, with the thermostat on cool, and the temp. setting as low as possible for at least 10 minutes see if the contactor is pulled in. If so, check the capacitor and see if it's blown out. Be super careful these systems operate with 220v and the amperes are enough to kill you if you make a simple mistake.

WHEN THE HEATER COMES ON THE FAN STARTS INSTANTLY AND BLOWS COLD


Do you have a heat pump? If so this is normal. You are probably used to a gas furnace. There are heat pumps that do have a delay though. Look on the circuit board in the air handler. There may be a set of pins that say 0-30-60-90 yours may be at 0. Also some digital T-stats offer that function for delay off to get the extra heat or cold from the system. Find out what the model number of the air handler and call the Goodman supplier in your area to see if you have these options.
If you have a gas furnace and it's not delaying the blower there is definately something wrong.
