This is not even a repair issue.If it is hot out and it's on quite a bit,there will be much condensation.However,condensation on a circuit board is never good.Since it is only 1 week old and you can see this serious of a potential problem,especially the possibility of fire because of the circuit board,I would consider a different a/c unit.If they have to rig it to try to prevent failure,I would not even consider that ethical.Is this unit you're having the problem with a window unit?I would contact them,look for a better designed unit,and have them re-install...BETTER BE FREE,VERY LOW COST IF ANY.If they refuse,get as bad as they do such as ,I will talk to my lawyer about who would be at fault if this catches fire,stuff like that.I hate do that kind of stuff,but I am the type of person where I give back what I get from a store.If they still refuse and you bought it with a credit card,call them.They are willing to do much more for consumers than most people realize.That's all I have to suggest.Good luck and please let me know how you make out.

You may check you manual if that design is matched with the diagram on it. If you feel that the settings were heavy just like the condensation on the bottom, you may refer to goodman and I believe you have a free service technician that can work to since it is only 1 week old. I am sure if you avail the 30-day money back guarantee on that company. But just to make things better on your part, if they cant fix this unit, you may refer to local handler who is an expert to this product. You may also ask other people if they have encountered this same problem...

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

What should be the correct supply and discharge temperature of a goodman hvac


Depending on the temperature & humidity level in your house, the temperature difference of the air entering your air handler and the air blown into your house should be in the 16 - 21 degF range. The temperature difference of the air entering your condensing unit and the air leaving your condensing unit should be between 25 - 30 degrees, with 30 degrees being for older model units. Anything above 30 requires cleaning.

Rheem Air Handler will not run. This is a 2006 Rheem model RHLA-HM3617JA Air Handler. I replaced both the condenser and air handler circuit boards. I replaced the motor in the air handler.. The condenser...


Have you hard wired your fan motor to verify that the motor and or the capacitor are good? If you do a continuity test of the motor leads(with electricity off of course) you can see if the motor has open or grounded windings.
