Goodman 3.5 heat pump

My air conditioner is blowing out hot air, I called a repairman to check it and he told me the compressor was locked in a unit that is 5 years old. He said it would cost me 1500.00 to have it replaced. How do I know that the problem is the compressor? also what is recommended.

Does the breaker blow when you turn it on? If it does then the compressor is certainly shot. I would spend a couple of bucks and get a second opinion. As far as price $1500. is a pretty good deal for a new condensor.

The piston is too large. Have a reputable heating and air technician install the proper size piston and this will correct the problem. Cost should be 150.00.

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 don't know what you use to heat your house, (heat pump, gas, oil) but if it is not a heat pump, i.e.. you don't use the outdoor unit to produce both heat and cooling, then the first place to look is at the compressor in the condensing unit (outdoor unit). If you have a bad capacitor, it will cause the compressor to pull locked rotor amperage (LRA) for an extended period of time and will cause the fuse to trip (usually within 2 or 3 seconds) The other possibility would be that something got into the wiring and have created a short. I have seen more insect and rodent damage to wires then you can imagine, so this is also a high possibility. Hope this helps

I have a goodman ac/heat pump....worked fine last season...now only blows cold air, even in heat setting....help! thanx


Heat Pumps are not famous for being fast heaters. Give it some time to act. Is yours extracting heat from the air or from a water source. If from the outside air, consideration must be given to the temp of the outside air. It takes longer to warm as the temp outside drops.

Yours could be a different problem of course, but let it have a chance to work before you call the repairman.

I have a CPLE24-1 split system. heat not working


I dont know where you are located but anything bellow 45 degrees a heat pump does not put out much heat. As it gets colder the effeciency goes down. So if you have 24,000 at 60 degrees outside at 45 it is 15,000. Now first thing have the charge checked. If a unit is one pound low it can loose 20 %. Next see if your auxilary heat is working . You have at leat 8 KW backup heat.This comes on the second stage about 2 degrees or 2 to 4 minutes behing the Hat Pump. Ask service tech for free estimate or call and get season check. They will go thru your unit and check everything and let you know what wrong and also clean the system. Cost about 49.00 to 69.00. I own a business and we sell a maintanance contract for 105.00 and check and clean the system twice a year.Keep in touch Rus

Goodman Air handler blowing fuse if switch outside unit not runni


Sounds like your compressor in your heat pump is siezed . You can try a "Hard Start" Capacitor...which basically gives your compressor a kickstart and works 95% of the time when compressors get older....It's hooked up in parallel with the existing Capacitor...if you're not familiar with Electrical etc I would call an expert and mention what I said . If this doesn't work you will likely need a new Compressor/Unit . You could also have a short to ground in the heat pump side....likely the compressor is the problem however the original Capacitor could also be the problem
