Goodman air conditioner not running

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!

Air conditioner isn't blowing cool air and it's not coming out of the vent very fast


Check to see if air is blowing out the back side of condersor,outside ,maybe fan not blowing on outside, or freon low.

If the power failure was due to a storm the blower motor may have shorted out. Check that the breaker for the inside unit has not tripped.

My a\c unit not cooling but the unit is running


check to see if the fresh air vent is blocked. If the unit is outside make sure nothing is blocking the air flow ie. grass, weeds, etc.

If these are clear, you probably need some "freon"/ coolant installed.

A/C fan is running but no cool air


Make sure the outside unit is running. If it is then you may need to get the unit charged.

Goodman A/C won't cool


Fan motor or capacitor has gone out. Running the unit with the motor not running can cause damage to your compressor

I had power blink off for a couple of seconds and then came back on. The Amana air conditioner RCC30A2E seem to be On but no cool air was blowing. I check breaker it was ok. I preceeded to check...


Check for fuses in the 24v wiring. Was anything running outside? The 24V X-former is located in the air handling unit. check for voltage on the air handler. if present, check output voltage at X-former. You should have 24V

AC unit outside blowing out cold air, vents


Sounds like compressor not running. may be a bad capacitor, could also be low on freon.

Heat pump not running


check your house circuit breakers first that should be labeled heatpump or outdoor unit
make sure it is on and or not tripped
then if you have a box outside near the outdoor unit open it up and see if there is a breaker or maybe fuses that could be blown

No cool air


turnn unit off and allow to unfreeze.
if it happens again you need to have a service check refrigerant pressure in your unit.
