Global.netOur ac/heating unit is approx 2 years old. The unit triped the breaker resulting in the fan continueing to run, but the cooling unit no longer cooled.. Re set the breaker and unit immediately...


I would check all the connections at the breaker panel, and in the disconnect and in the control panel of the unit, the connections must be tight. If the breaker is sized to small a dirty coil could be to blame if so give it the hose, a full solid stream and be thorough is cleaning it.

My goodman furnance will not bow out air only the fan works . what should i do


Check all the easy things first. Check that all the settings on the thermostat are correct for AC. Does the AC unit run? If not check the electrical panel breakers to see if the AC unit breaker is tripped. If it is tripped, reset it. If it continues to trip, call are reputable service company. There are little or no items for "do-it-yourself" unless you have the training and equipment to service AC. Good luck.

I turned my ac off yesterday. I turned it back on tonight and it would not turn on. I noticed it was flashing (Change batteries) so I put new ones in. I waited till the cool on stopped flashing and it...


Turn the thermostat to fan only and insure you get air blowing through the registers or feel air pulling in at the return air. If YES then make sure you have the thermostat programmed correctly to call for cooling when set to auto! Also the start/run capacitor may be failed out side at the condensor unit. They are cheap to replace but dangerous to handle so becareful. If NO then you are not getting signal to the blower and may have a failed transformer that converts 120v to 24v for the thermostat controls. Also double check your breakers in your service panel to see if they tripped for some reason. A failing or weak breaker can cause this symptom aswell!

The a/c unit outside doesnt come on but the fan inside of the house is blowing, the unit is not cooling the house. I have a goodman unit.


Hi, this is a split system Goodman. With the j36 in the model number, that tells me it is a 3 1/2 ton unit. If the outdoor condensing unit is off and doing nothing at all, no fan on top running, no compressor or anything, it sounds as though you have lost power to it. The high voltage to the outdoor unit is seperate from the indoor unit. When it is not running, you have only warm air from the indoor unit. Before I have you do anything, go out to the unit. Take a water hose being careful not to bend the fins on the coil, and wash just the coil very good. If its dirty, it can cause the pressures in the system to rise very high and blow a fuse or trip a breaker. When you are done washing it, you should have a electrical box mounted on the wall that feeds power to this unit. First, find your main breaker box to your home. It should be where the meter is. Find it and it will have several different breakers in it. They may or may not be marked. Look for a double - pole 30 to 40 amp breaker that should say a/c, if it was marked. If not, look and touch them, it will be 2 breakers together and feel if they are tripped. If so, turn it off with a hard motion. Then, back on the same way. Watch to see if it holds and does not trip on you. If its ok, go to the outdoor unit. Make sure the thermostat is on auto/cool and turned way down for it to come on. If it was a breaker and its running, more then likely the dirt from coil caused it to over amp and trip. Now, if there is power and breaker is on but still not on, open the box at the unit. It may have a pull out type plug, or breakers. If it has a breaker, turn it off and on like the other. If it doesn't, behind a plastic panel you will have 2- fuses. Turn off power at main box breaker, and remove both fuses. They are cheap, so go get 2 at a hardware store and replace them. You can have them ohmed out to see if one was bad. After installing the new ones and you turn it on, and all is good, that was your problem. May sure you have power to this outside unit. If it was a blown fuse or tripped breaker and this continues to happen, you may have a internal compressor or condenser fan motor problem. Try the things I have said first. This may be the only problem you have. I do this for a living, 33 years and a licensed contractor. Please keep me posted and I will continue to help you if you need me. Let me know after you check everything.
Sincerely,
Shastalaker7 :)

Fan blows but not cold


possible breaker is bad. Have an electrician do an amp test on the compressor which will tell you if the compressor is bad. That is the only way to test the compressor. I would change the breaker first due to the age of the breaker and (if it hasn't been changed out before) due to the amount of time the breaker has ran your a/c system. I f this breaker continues to trip I would have the units compressor checked on amps being pulled from electric service

AC breaker trips after 10 minutes


Whats the amp breaker? Is this for the inside unit or the outside condenser? If the inside and gas heat you have a bad fan motor, If its an electric furnace , the same, but if its the outside unit, the fan could be going bad, locking up and the compressor still runs and pulls high ampsand tripps breaker or the compressor is just pulling too many amps due to plugged coils with dirt , grass or weeds blocking airflow.(koolbreezes74401@yahoo.com)
