    whole unit has been in an power off status for over 2 hours when compressor was replaced and unit still malfunctioned

  • gonzales393 Apr 28, 2008

    Unit was installed end of 1999, 2 thermostats have been changed for other problems, compressor replaced last year.

  • gonzales393 Apr 28, 2008

    The repair was for the outside unit, no A/C at all, never reported inside problem since fan works manually,and I would leave it running all the time and let the outside unit kick on and off as needed, but now with the price of everything going up I am trying to cut all unneeded electrical use. I am currently trying to obtain a schematic or repair manual for unit, since I don't like to pay $90.00 an hour labor, Will figure this out. Thanks for the help.

What about the blower time delay relay: http://americanhvacparts.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=SEQ1370738&Category_Code=

This usually delays the blower until the air is cool, but if it's faulty it might not start the blower at all.

It looks like the condenser motor is working, as the copper tube is cold. However, it looks like the shaft that connects the condenser motor to the propeller blade (blower) is not functioning properly, or there is some kind of obstruction that is preventing the propeller from rotating.
If you are not familiar with this kind of work, I would recommend that you get a qualified A/C technician to look into this, or if it is under warranty, then get the local Goodman Service Center to send out a tech.
Hope that helps...

It sounds more like a loose contact if it works intermittently.
I would suggest to double check the wiring connections specially where they connect to a different board or panel.

    Click here to get a repair manual, it might not be the same as your appliance but the basic functions are the same.

    Just make sure to unplug or turn the breakers OFF when working on this appliance.

    All you need to do is to turn the AC completely off and unplug the power cable from the wall outlet and leave it turned off for 2 hrs
    and then turn the unit and then reset the unit circuit breaker.

    This will be onto the normal operation.
    Hope this helps

    Then you need to contact the technician as you have already spend money in getting the unit repaired you should consult that the work is still pending and he should take care of the issue.

Why is the inside fan is not running and hearing a gurgling sound with the outside unit still running?


The gurgling sound sounds like freon is flowing thru the system pipes. Is the larger of the 2 copper tubes running cold to the touch? Hi-Low module make also be the problem. It tells the inside fan when to turn off and on.

I have a Goodman A/C unit. When I turn on the therostat the outside fan does not turn though there is a mild buzz sound. The blower blows warm air inside of my house. What could the problem be?


Does the cpompressor come on if not the sound you here maybe the contactor. Check float switch inside. It is underneath the unit or in front of the air handler. Drain stopped up need to blow out drain. Check outside breakers. possible bad capacitor on unit. Need service tech. Rusty

Inside blower not starting every time


You have a voltage bleed somewhere or a short, whatever you want to call it. Do you have a control board on this unit where the relays are integrated into it or do you have the old type where the relay is separate? Anyway, you need to take a meter and take voltage readings to the motor when it's acting up and when it's running right. I have had the same problem with a Goodman unit before and it turned out to be the tstat! What I would do is remove the cover off the tstat and take a small jumper wire and touch the r terminal to the y terminal. If the motor starts right up, you know it's the tstat. If you have the same problem, then the only thing it can be is a low voltage short to the unit from the tstat, bad control board if you have one, or a bad relay. But if the unit is working fine in heat, it's probably not the relay. I hope this helps.

The contactor on the outside unit is sticking and must be replaced. The inside unit cycles off and the outside continues to run causing the refrigerant lines to freeze up.

Ac problems


Hello from KOOLBREEZES, this is a simle problem and easy to fix. You have 2-lines going to / from your outside unit. a SMALL COPPER -line and a LARGE COPPER line with insulations. The fat line is suppose to have moisture on it wheres it,s not insulated which tells you you have enough refrigerant gas comming back to he compressor but if its dry you,re low on freon and need a charge or the outside condenser is dirty and not getting rid of enough heat!
