Question about Goodman CLQ36AR49 Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Hi. We have a Goodman CK49-15 and AC guy just told us that comopressor is fried and said he cannot get another one and a replacement for the whole system will be over $9K. Just curious if that seems reasonable and wondered about your opinion. He said that old type freon will be hard to get soon so we should just upgrade. Easy fo him to say :) Thanks much Mike in Dallas

Hi, and no, no, no,!! There is still plenty off the R-22 freon units that have been made, and there is plenty of the R-22 to last for another 15 years or so. If your compressor is fried, it should be around $12 to $1600.00 to replace it. This includes recovering freon, replacing the compressor, a new suction and liquid line drier and a new run capacitor. In fact, they sell a complete compressor change out kit for your unit right this minute, includes every thing he needs to to the job.This is a 3 ton unit and the price he quoted you was awefull!!! There are plenty of compressors on the market for your unit every where, he's just trying to sell you the new R410-a unit and stick it to you on the price. Call around and give them your model number and tell them your compressor is bad. Get several estimates. That compressor is available today, and I could call my supplier and have one with in the hour. Go with a new compressor, it will be years before they use up the R-22 we have. They still haven't used up the R-12. Please don't forget to rate me as I know you will be kind, and let me know if you need my help.

My AC unit comes on, but the fan doesn't work or blow air

The condenser fan motor has gone bad... this is a very common problem. Find the specs. on the side of the motor and then get a replacement from Goodman or from a company like
The fan motor is rather easy to replace, the worst part is getting the fan blades off of the shaft of the old motor. Use WD-40 and be patient...

Goodman unit you can use a 1/4 hp or 1/3 hp cond. fan motor but it does sound like a cap. Replace cap first. Its very easy to do just open up panel and replace the silver bullet with terminals out the top. It will say on the side what size it is like 40uf 5uf or something like that. Thats most likely your problem. Russ

Air conditioning unit

Hi! AC Unit
Sorry you have had so much trouble. Sounds like with the factory warranty being in effect the whole outside condensing unit should be replaced. With this type of problem there could be some blockage in the AC lines. With out some pressure reading it is hard to tell if the expansion tube is plugged, or there is some other major problem. If your service tech is unable to diagnose the problem you may need to get a third opinion. Goodman may have a factory representative in your area. You may be able to find some help with a different dealer or online. Good Luck! I will try and look for any changes.
