My Goodman condenser which was recently replaced is making a severe swashing noise when it stops. Like a back flush or something. Need to know if this standard.

Normally if it does not sound right, it is not right. By your discription it sounds like your compressor is having a problem with flood back caused by a txv not metering properly, or an overcharged system. You will need a tech who can determine superheat and subcool for your refrigerant system. Find a tech who can determine these values. Superheat and subcool is normally around 8 -12 degrees. Superheat is the amount of additional heat the refrigerant picks up in the evaporator once it is turned to gas and is needed to keep liquid refrigerant from flooding back to the compressor. Compressor are designed to compress gas not liquid. Subcool is the additional cooling refrigerant undergoes once the refrigerant turns back into into liquid in the conderser. Subcool ensures the refrigerant remains in liquid form until it reaches the metering device. Only liquid suppied metering devices will pass the required amount of refrigerant to achieve the rated cooing or heating rates. If it is liquid flood back, your compressor will be damaged and will need to be replaced. Hope this helps

Compressor shut off for no reason

You need to to determine the superheat and subcooling to check for the proper operation of your system when the compressor is running. I ran into a case just yesterday, the breaker kept tripping. Unit had the same readings as yours. This one had a subcooling of >25 degrees and 0 degrees superheat indicating unit was overcharged. I took an extra 8 pounds of r22 out of the system. During the investigation I also determined the filter/drier was blocking the refrigerant flow causing the technician to overcharge the unit. To check filter/drier performance all you need to do is measure the upstream and downstream temperature. The difference should be less than 2 degrees. This one was 7 degrees indicating it was metering flow. If your compressor stops operating before determining superheat and subcooling, you can get a professional tech to recover and weigh out the refrigerant in your system. You can look on the nameplate data on the side of the outside unit and see the ounces of refrigerant it is charged. If the compressor is operable go ahead and adjust charge by recovering the excess refrigerant into a recovery container for that refrigerant. Normal superheat and subcooling is normally around 10 - 15 degrees.
Hope this helps

How do i trouble shoot/fix m1400 frosting pipe reezing up outside not cooling house

Get a high velocity air filter, not a pleated one. Check air into evaporator section clean and passing air well. Next, check proper operation of blower motor and wheel. Next, check for proper charge by performing a superheat and subcool calculation. You will need a repairmant to check these. Superheat and subcool will tell you if your unit is properly charged and if you metering device is working properly. A typical superheat and subcooling value is around 10 to 15 degrees.

Hvac superheat verses subcooling

superheat is the difference of line temperture at suction of the compressor to the pressure converted to temperture for freon used in system. subcooling is the difference of temperture measured on liquid line compared to pressure measured at discharge line converted to temperture for the freon used in system.

What is the subcooling temp. on a rheem 11 seer r22 01-98

Hello, there should be a chart inside the unit that states what the correct subcooling should be. If there is no chart the rule of thumb is 12 degrees of subcooling.

How to use it

Subcooling - The difference between the temperature of the Small copper line (Liquid Line) and the high-side (red) gauge temp on your manifold

Superheat - The difference between the temp. of the Suction line (Big copper) and the low side gauge (blue) temp

1) this is not a question.
2) the subcooling temperature should not be 80 degrees above ambient.

How long does it take to put a little R22 Freon in an Amana Central air unit

The manufacturers want you to let the system run for 10 to 15 minutes for the system to stabilize before adding freon. Then after adding it needs to balance out to check either superheat or the subcooling. Depends upon the metering device of the evaporator coil.
