Question about Goodman CLQ36AR49 Air Conditioner
I noticed that not so cool air was blowing out of A/C vents. I went outside to check on a/c unit to find only one was running. Looked at lines to house and noticed no leaks or frost. i dropped the temp on thermostat to try and kick it on but it didnt work. Unit next to it for upstairs seems to run fine. I also checked breaker to see if it was tripped but it was fine. Units are only 3 yrs old. Any suggestions?
2 summers ago, exact same problem with one of our two units outside. contractor that installed the unit when home was built was not helpful and not able to come out. another a/c company explained they would not be able to make it that day, but offered knowledge that often times in my area (San Antonio, TX) ants get into the electrical contacts of the mechanical switch and block the current.
following instructions to trip all the breakers inline and checking this it was confirmed, i cleaned the contacts with pencil erasers (a trick i learned with model car electric leads) and sure enough it's still working 2 years later.
believe it or not the same year my water well had the same symptoms and it turned out to be the mechanical switch was blocked by ants also!
