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!

    OK, forget step 4 (cleanning the condenser coil for now) and lets go to step 2--3. Checking the indoor airflow across the indoor coil. this unit is designed to have a certain cfm per minutes across the indoor coil when clean and running right. Now, here' the problem. Low air flow caused by dirty filter, dirty fan blades,and last plugged inside a-coil. Check the airflow out the farthest vent from the unit, which they all should be close to the same cfms. If the farthest vent has a marked less airflow, then your problem is low air flow first ...2ond , clean the condenser coil with high preassure,(put your thumb on the end of the water hose .when in doubt, call 918-360-9272 or email koolbreezeshadiagnostic.smrated.com.

Why can't I lower my honeywell 8500 below 67 on cool?


With a two story house you have to be aware that cold air flows downwards so any cold air coming from an ac unit will flow downstairs( normally down the stairway) so unless you can close off the down stairs then the up stairs unit will be cooling downstairs as well. Ac units have a thermostat located in the air intake and it cools until the cold air has risen to that point. In effect the space above the ac unit will be hotter than the floor. Knowing how they work ,you can see that the upstairs unit will never reach the set temperature because the cold air is continually heating from the house and will never get to the top thermostat.
So your solutions are
1-- fit controls that restrict the cold air from leaving the upper floor (Doors)
2--don't run the upper ac unit unless you are living up there (waste of money
)3 place an ac in each upper room and keep the room door closed

My condensor fan and compressor on my Carrier AC (Model# 38ckc036350) stopped working, so I replaced my capacitor and they both work fine now. The problem is my house won't cool down. There is c


Often after a repair has been made, the air conditioner will take hours to readjust back to normal. When the system has been off for to long, not only does the heat in the house rise, but so does the humidity, which has to be pulled out of the air first before it really starts dropping in temp. You could have a low charge on refrigerant, dirty filters, etc. More than once I have ran into things that were just coincidence after a repair that showed up. Since you just replaced the capacitor, I would make sure the fan motor is turning in the right direction and there is nice air flow coming out of the condenser, some times if one wire is wrong, it can cause it to spin backwards, which will work, but just barely. The air needs to be pulled through the coils, not pushed. Hope this helps!

I think my goodman refrigerated air system may iced up. How do I know and how do I thaw it so I can cool my house


Hello, usually the suction line will begin to ice up ( the pipe with insulation on it) if there is a airflow problem or a low refrigerant charge, to thaw it out just turn off the ac and set the thermostat to fan. Now the unit will need to be serviced because if it keeps running this way the compressor can get severly damaged.

We have a3 yr old Goodman CAPF3030B6AA Airconditioner and Furnace. The Air conditioner hasnt worked right all summer. Its 102 degrees outside and we can set the thermostat on 72 degrees and it will be...


A/C units have a design temperature of 90F. Now when the temperature is above 90F they start to have trouble keeping up. Depending on how well your unit is sized for the house, you will notice when the temp is over 90F. I don't know if who ever looked at your unit checked the refrigerant pressures since you said he checked the temps but I assume he did, however, it could possibly need charging.

Hi I have a goodman it wont turn on , the only


check voltage at the contactor (coil) when the thermostat calls for cooling and see if you still get 28vac; if you do, it has to be a bad contactor coil, if not, which i suspect, you either have a short in the thermostat wire going to the contactor coil or a faulty control transformer; check for loose or broken wires

Wont get cool, can you refill?


Does AC turn on at all? if yes, remove front cover, do coils get cool at all? if no, thermostat may be bad telling unti that the desired temp reached is satified.. or.. you have the desired temp too low, if you have it set for 75 degrees, and it is 72 in your house, the fan will run and no cool air will be present.

Compressor runs 45 seconds off for 2 minutes cycles like this no voltage change


In order to accurately determine and diagnose the problem, a more detailed description of the problem needs to be communicated as opposed to normal operation of the system so a repair person can determine that there is in fact a problem. There's a big difference between solving a problem via text as opposed to seeing what is wrong in the field. They rarely are the same.

Goodman condenser sequence of operation on a matched system. Call for cool, condenser starts, 15-30 seconds later blower motor starts, cool satisfied, condenser shuts down, 15-45 seconds later blower motor shuts down. House heats ups and a call for cool via the thermostat starts another cycle.

Based on normal operation it is impossible to determine whats wrong with the information given. There are perhaps 5 voltage measurements in the system that you could be referring to.

No cool air. Thermostat AUX light turned on


I suggest you call a qualified service repair man. There are as many ways to connect a heat pump as there are people doing them. Nothing is standard industry wide that has anything to do directly with color codes, so it would be meaningless to go into them here. The terminals may be adapted to standard but but the thermostat manufacturer may not follow any terminal designations.

However you may just have an extra wire touching one of the terminals inside the thermostat. You can check this by removing the cover. Look where the wires attach to the terminal screws on the thermostat. Sometimes a new service person cuts the insulation back too far here or in the outdoor or indoor units and a "whisker" from one wire can touch the other terminals. A whisker is not the normal case try and move it away from another terminal if its is touching there. However, you may have jumpers in place especially if you have W, W1, W2... at any of the 3 sections, meaning the outdoor, indoor and thermostat.

If you can tell me the terminal designations R,Y, W1, W2, E, G, O, (B)... at the thermostat and the color thereon each, then at the indoor unit terminals or wire designations and the color there, then at the outdoor unit and the color thereon each terminal or wire designation there. I might be able to help if the above whisker check you don't find anything.:
