Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I cannot remove the General electric motor from my Goodman furnace

Goodman Furnace Model # GMPN080-4 REV B
Serial # 0111624331

The motor is faulty -it would not turn. It would only hum. Started to do this at the end of February. Did not need to use furnace. Now weather is quite warm and the motor is responsible for pushing cool air when the air conditioner is on. I removed the 3 outer bracket bolts that held the motor in place as it sat centered in the drum like metalwork. But I cannot get the motor and attached fan to pass back out the hole so i can replace the motor. Is the fan attachment on the motor shaft supposed to come off? And How? What to do? I could use some help,... please.

Oil the Day Lights out of it. Take Entire Squirl Cage out as one assembly so you can work with it. Use penatrating oil for days before trying to remove . You can accelerate the process with blow torch heat oil repeatedly. Loosen hex allen screw Hold shaft twist fan assembly to try to break free use a punch and hammer to push shaft out. Good luck

It's a brand new unit but it blows air so hard and makes so much noise. Can the flow the adjusted down?

is the fan outside too noisy,if so there is no way to change the speed of this fan,the blower motor in the furnace can be adjusted,either by adjusting the centrifugal pulley on the motor shaft or electrically or installing a different squirrel cage fan on the furnace blower

Have Goodman model CK36-18 outside a/c unit that won't turn on. checked breaker in house and it's fine.

There could be a number of problems why. Some would include:
Faulty thermostat-
Test by pulling of the cover and jumping the R terminal to the Y terminal and if it works then, you have a faulty thermostat.

Faulty capacitor-
This is located on the outside unit in the electrical compartment. It is a round or oval shaped cap with wires coming from the top and can only be checked if you have a multimeter that has MicroFarads available. If so, you pull the wires off (remembering exactly how they were hooked up) and put your test leads to the Herm and Com terminals and get your reading. Then you look at the label and see if your numbers match up. IMPORTANT: Disconnect the line voltage before opening the electrical compartment on the condenser!

Faulty Electrical Board-
Located on the inside unit, most models have boards that will give you a code with a flashing LED light now. The code list is usually on the back of the furnace doors. If you dont have a board at all, then the furnace is an older model and the trouble-shooting could get a little more difficult. If it has the board, try locating a fuse on the board and checking if its blown, if it is, replace and see if thats the only problem.

These are just a few things that you can check. I hope it helps somewhat. Good Luck!

I have a Goodman electric furnace model ARUF049-00A-1. It seems to run constantly and emits an odor of sewer through the air ducts

Can you view inside to the electic heaters and ensure they are clean? On rare occasions, insulation from furnace or attic believe it or not gets into furnace and gets cought up in the coils. It could possibly ruin your sequencers, you'll have to have a tech replace those.

Goodman U-30 Furnace

observe the sequence of operation. stat calls for heat and sends a signal, to furnace. check for 24 volts to common and white wire at furnace.first the forced draft motor starts and should have 120 volts to the plug it attaches to. after forced draft motor starts the pressure or vacuum switch closes should show no 24 volt when checked across terminals. shortly after the ignitor glows and shortly after click the main gas valve opens and main burners fire. shortly after the indoor fan comes on and hot air blows into the ductwork. follow the chain of events to see what doesnt happen and it is a clue to whats broke. maybe start by switching fan switch on stat to on. if fan comes on you have high and low voltage thereby eliminating the stat power and transformer as a problem. if you can see the ignitor look for it to be cracked . look close dont touch any part of it .it is powered by 120 volts when energized from board. dont forget when you take the door off there is no power to the furnace so be prepared to tape the safety switch closed when you are diagnosing.
