Question about Heating & Cooling

Fan in my Central Cooling Conditioner Unit are not running

Why the fan on my unit (outside) are not moving?
Make is Goodman model number CK36-1A
I know there is power coming to it because ai hear a humming sound I think coming from the compressor.

The fan inside blows air fine , but NOT cool air.
I was told that it might be the capacitator.
Is a way to make it start , like poking it with a stick?
Do you know the capacitator part number?

AC volts 208/330 Phase 1 Hertz 60
Voltage range min 197 max 253
Max Fuse amps or HACR circuit breaker 40
Compressor RLA 17.3 LRA 89.0
fan motor FLA 1.3 HP 1/6

    I have the same model, ck36-1a, installed at a house I am buying. The inspector caught it. Fan does not spin, yet I hear it hum. Other forums I have read say that while it is humming, try to spin the blades manually, with a paint stirrer (thin stick) and if the fan trys or starts to spin, it is the capacitor. If the blades make no attempt to keep spinning, it is the fan motor. Anyone have any tips for changing the capacitor? Do you need to discharge the old one?

Seriously you guys are silly. it is either the capacitor or the fan motor, period. you don't need to be a trained technician to know how to work on it; this is a myth. however, you need to respect the difference in danger between 120v and 240v components and recognize that more serious precautions are to be taken before working on these machines. at the very least, make the entire system electrically neutral by manually switching off at the outdoor breaker. then proceed with caution as those capacitors are big enough to hurt.

NEVER POKE AT ANY PRODUCT on a heating and cooling system it need to be serviced by a trained tech that knows what is going on in the unit, poking around can cause death and at the least a large sum of money if you poke the wrong place

Does the goodman air conditioner have a reset button? running but not cooling

Is the fan in the outside unit rrunning? If not, then it is either the contactor relay or the capacitor. so far this is the cheapest place I have found for genuine Goodman parts.

I need help with a buzzing sound in my air conditioner.

It is probably the compressor humming. They can make some funny noises especially on start for a while. If the unit is not cooling it may be the start capacitor or the comressor may be locked up.

AC Fan outside running slow

The brown wire goes to the capacitor. It probably shorted out with the nicked wire. Replace the capacitor.

Hello, We bought a Perry Home in Georgetown TX last March and it is still under its two year warranty. Our air conditioner stopped cooling today. It has been working well for over 1 year. We came home...

You have a 10 year warranty on your AC. Call a Goodman rep and have it serviced. It will probably be a bad compressor capacitor. Bad wire or no refrigerant.

Goodman CK60-1C model central AC unit blwing hot air

Clicking sound is the contactor engaging to start the outside unit. Check for a burnt off wire at the contactor. For some reason you are not getting power to the outside unit. If you find a burnt off wire shut off all power to it then remake the connection at the point of the circuit break.
