It probably failed because it reached high temperatures or pressures. make sure the regular maintenance has been performed then wait 1 day and try again. It has internal overload protection and that can take hours to reset. If this doesn't work then you probably need a licensed technician to take a look at it.

If you have to jiggle the wires going into the compressor motor to get it going, I would submit that you may very well have a broken wire or otherwise loose connection that is making contact when you jiggle the wires. If all appropriate connections were good, jiggling the wires would/should have no effect. I assume you are jiggling wires AT THE MOTOR input and not elsewhere in the circuitry. After you jiggle the wires and get it started, does it continue to run? or if not, describe more thoroughly what is happening..

I started my forced air furnace yesterday and it worked fine. Today the burner kicks on when the thermostat calls for it, but this morning the burner kicks on, but the fan won't start.


Hello there,
If the burner kicks on but the fan is not starting, then it simply means there is a problem with the blower motor. The problem most likely is that the motor is dusty and need to be cleaned out.
Once the motor sis cleaned out, have it greased and installed back and ensure the wiring is intact, then turn on the furnace and the fan will start to foll. If that does not solve the problem, then it means there is a problem with the blower motor and it meeds to be replaced.

My unit was working fine until 3 days ago when the breaker tripped, I reset the breaker and worked fine for a day then tripped again when it tripped both the ac breaker andthe main in the trailer as well...


High amp draw can be caused by a few different things, so first check that incoming voltage to trailer is sufficient. (115 volts) Not unusual for some parks to install more hydro hook-ups on a feed line, and when all are up and running, your incoming voltage could be decreased. If your o.k. that way, then I'd start looking at the compressor circuit of your ac, in particular, the compressor start-up capacitor. The capacitor basically stores electricity and boosts it to higher voltage for compressor and fan start-ups to reduce current draw that will trip the breaker. Please have a knowledgeable electrician, or RV tech check this for you, as a capacitor can give a real good high voltage (possible fatal) shock, even when power is off to unit. I also suspect that the start relay has shorted (welded) itself due to high amp draw situation, and that is reason it comes on by itself.

Fan does not work.


I'm working on one right now and I believe it's the capacitor. It's hard to find this capacitor. So far I've tryed 3 HVAC suppliers and none have this rare capacitor. First UNPLUG THE UNIT. Take the phillips screws out of each side in the front. Then take the 3 screws out of the face of the control. There are 3 white common wires and a dark brown compressor wire and a light brown fan wire. Take the 1/4 inch screw out and unplug the wires and find another one.

Goodman compressor cuts off when temp too high


I believe you have 1 of 2 problems going on here your system may be overcharged causing the compressor to cut out on a overload relay circuit internally, or it also could be tripping out a high pressure switch which could be from an overcharged system or a dirty condenser. I would have the tech come out on a 90 degree day and put the gauges on and check the pressures while it is operating under a full load.

Hope this helps you.
