Question about Goodman CKL60AR60 Air Conditioner

4 Answers

Goodman CKL60-1L The AC unit has ice on the coil leading to the house. The central core under fan has ice on it as well. The house is not getting barely getting cool. I would turn the AC on during the day and turn the system all the way off at night could this have caused the icing and air blockage?

Icing up is either 1--or 2 things, low-airflow across the indoor coils, or low on freon, bottomline! koolbreezes74401@yahoo.com

Four things cause icing up:
( 1 ) Is your filter clean? dirty filter blocks air flow causing iceing up. replace filter
( 2 ) Do you hear the Indoor fan running? If the fans not running the unit ices up. Check Capacitor to fan if good.
Bad fan motor... replace fan motor and cap. If both good
( 3 ) Check Air Handler evap coil if dirty and or clogged, restricts air flow causing unit to ice up. Use toilet brush to clean.
This is always a big possibility if you have pets.
( 4 ) If the above are not present then you are low on refrigerant.
Low refrigerant will cause icing up because the gas does not flash properly. This will require a service tech.
refrigerant leaks can be as simple as a loose cap on the king valve, leaking schrader core, to coil leak.
Have the service tech show you the leak. If it is in a copper line it can be fixed. If the system is over 10 years old limit the amount you want to spend. 10 years is the standard life expectantcy anymore. Good luck

Goodman central air conditioning. Little air is coming from the vents in the house and the air that is coming out isnt very cold


have the central unit blower/fan cleaned as they block up from dust and other particles so that they eventually look like logs and do not move air like they should. Have the unit gas pressure tested for correct amount of gas

Have ice build up on line leading into outside unit and ice buidup on inside units on my goodman air conditioner


Turn the system off on the thermostat and set the fan to "ON", this will thaw the ice faster if it hasn't already. When the system has completely thawed, which could take hours sometimes, depending on how bad it's frozen, then turn system back to "Cool" and start these checks>

1. Make sure filters are clean!
2. Make sure there is proper airflow through vents.
3. Make sure outside condenser fan motor is running.

If you have either no or minimal airflow, check the indoor blower to make sure it's working, if it is, the evaporator coil is dirty restricting the airflow. Be sure the system is thawed because the ice will also block the airflow!

If the condenser fan motor is not running, either the capacitor or the fan motor will need to be replaced.

If your filters are clean, you have good airflow through the house, and everything comes on like it should, it will most likely be the charge of refrigerant in the system is too low and you have a leak somewhere. If you have to have it charged, be sure the system is thawed before the technician gets there, he will not be able to do anything while it's froze.

Hope this helps and good luck!

I have a Goodman AC unit that isn't working. I believe its the fuse. My power went out and the ac unit stopped working. the first time the repair guy said it was the fuse. I don't want to spend...


Generally, the fuses are located in a box outside by the outdoor unit. The box has a door on it and you will probably have to pull a cartridge out and the fuses will be behind the cartridge. If you don't have an ohm meter to check the fuses , just go to home depot, lowes or another hardware store where they can check them for you. Be sure to check the circuit breakers too.

Ac fan on, blowing air, but not cold


Check outside unit if unit and compressor are running feel the large line to see if it is cold. If compressor is running and line is not cold possible charge problems. You may have a capacitor problem outside. they go out quite often. You can change this yourself, Open up outside unit and the cap is the silver bullet with terminals out the top. Bad cap can cause compressor to not operate and also the fan. You need to clean the coil inside or at leat check the coil to see if it is clean. You can clean theis with a toilet brush do not go against the coil bit brush with the fins. You may need to call a service tech but try these options first. russ

Not puuling humidity out


To answer with any clarity I need to know is this a window type unit or central and what kind of thermostat do you have electronic display or no display just t knob pointer? Also I need to know what is running and what is not running when your trying to get it to dehum. I.E. Fan only Fan and compressor only Fan out side and compressor unknown if it is running...

And here is a real stickler, you said it has a leak and had to have a charge of refrigerant. What kind of refrigerant is it R22, R134A, R410A... And for sure was the evaporator coil still iced up when you decided it was low on charge or was it defrosted and room temperature?

All these questions have to be answered to get you steered into the correct area.

A low charge diagnosis for instance can be miss read if the evaporator is iced up or has any ice in or on it. A sticking thermostat, relay, causing the compressor to run on when it should be off, or air flow blocked or the fan motor on the evaporator cutting off when it should be on or a dirty filter or closed vent, or misplaced thermostat sensor could all lead to a freeze up of the inside coil as well as a few dozen other things other than low charge.

If these ideas give you an indication as to where to look or what to check futher please rate me as high as you can. If you need more information I need you to answer soem of the above questions with as much clarity as you can. And thanks for using fixya.

The ice buildup comes from low refrigerant or poor airflow.
Is your indoor fan runnig OK?
Are your evaporator coils clean of dust and dirt?
If fan is good and coils are clean, call a service tech to check your refrigerant charge.
