The actual age of your unit can be determined by the serial number. Based on the age indicated there they can tell you if the warranty is still valid. Your local Rheem/weather king dealer can do this for you. Most compressor warranties are either 5 or 10 years. Good Luck!

I have a Carrier Weathermaker model #38tdb060300 A/C system. How many tons is that? It is 11 yrs old, capacitor exploded and compressor is blown. Needing to replace.


Looks like a 5 ton unit. However, you might be better off finding a R-22 condensing unit to replace the entire outside unit. Reason being, if you just replace the compressor, you get a one year warranty. If you replace the whole outside unit, you get a 5 year warranty. You can replace the outside unit with any manufacturer, as long as it is the same tonnage and type (heat pump/air conditioner/single stage/ 2 stage ...).

I have 2.5 Goodman heat pump, 3 yrs old, the sucsion pressure is 90 PSI, the discharge pressure is 180 psi. I am told the I have a bad compressor valve. Please, tell me how can I fix a bad compressor...


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.

No cooling at all


I have been out of the air conditioner service sector for a while. I wanted you to know up front that I may be out of date. When running service I replaced many compressors for a fraction of the cost of a new unit. Many of these customers had been told the same thing. Service companies make allot more on a new unit than they do repairing an old one. Many don't have anyone capable of replacing a compressor. Get more than one opinion and if you replace the whole unit get more than one bid. Make sure all of the bids are for the same tonnage, or btu unit. Some lower bids are for a smaller unit that won't keep up after it has a little wear or the coils get a little dirty. If your unit is more than ten years old you should consider a new one. If not, if you can find a honest company it should be worth replacing the compressor. Replacement compressors, if installed by a certified tech, have at least a five year warranty.

UNIT IS ONLY 4 YEARS OLD AND IS ON ITS SECOND COMPRESSOR SUCTION PRESSURE SLOW ABOUT GOING DOWN AND DISCHARGE PRESSURE GOES TO 210 THEN WILL DROP TO 200 .UNIT HAS 10 DEGREES SUBCOOLING BUT SUPERHEAT IS...


Hi, sounds as though for this to be its 2nd compressor for such a newer unit, the superheat was not right when the compressor was installed. I don't know what freon you are using the new R-410A or the regular R-22. There's a big difference in pressure, but now I see your pressure reading and its R-22 for these readings.For a 2 ton unit, you would use the superheat charging method for a unit that doesn't use a thermostatic expansion valve ( T X V ) and not the sub-cooling. A 23 degree super heat at that outdoor ambient temperature is way to high for that unit, you will loose the compressor again!!. Super heat killed the compressor is the saying and that's a fact. Suction pressure should pull down just as quick as the head pressure unless the valves are going and weak, or you have a scroll compressor that has a valve plate that is going, or you are low on charge. With a ambient of 95*, you should be at around 270p.s.i. on your head pressure as 210 to 200 is way low. Suction line temp should be around 68 to 70, with a suction line temperature of 50 to 51 degrees, which would give you a 10 to 12 degree F super heat. I don't know when the second compressor was installed, but it has to be low on charge to be such a low head, and high super heat and you will loose this compressor again, its only a matter of time before you have a burnout. It was either under charged when installed, or has a very small leak at one of the joints. I hope the liquid line drier was replaced also. It shows me you have some knowledge on a/c operation, so you need to get that superheat down to between 8 and 10 degrees for this unit to cool properly, and leak check it also. Did you buy a extended compressor warranty? Lets get the head pressure up and superheat down and you should be OK unless the valves or valve plate is weak. Once you loose the valves, you will have a lower than normal head pressure and a high suction pressure. Compressor just won't pull down anymore. I hope I have been of help to you and ask of you to be kind when rating me. I will be here for you if and when you need me for anything.

I have a 2 year old compressor and about 4 year old furnance. The Evaporator coil is as old as the house at 20 yrs. My blower had burnt out and my ac was running for a long time and cause the compressor to...


It's gonna be difficult to get a matching evap coil for a 20 year old ac system. Since 2006 all of the evap coil were made to be 13 seer and that caused the size to increase making it hard to install sometimes. If you are going to replace the whole coil, you would be better off if you can swing the money to replace the outdoor condenser and indoor coil at the same time. I know that you only got two years out of the compressor, but everything is going to the new R410A Refrigerant and more efficient systems. You Should Be Able to Keep Your Furnace. Depending On The Climate A Heat Pump Dual Fuel Would Save You A Ton Of Money.

Blower no cool


Chances are the tech said it was a "capacitor".
That is one of the few (and minor) parts that routinely go bad and would be no suprise with a 17 month old unit. Nearby lightening strikes or power surges can cause them to fail. That is true with all brands.

(the condensor is the entire outdoor unit)

Goodman systems typically come with a 1 year all parts warranty, and a 10 year compressor warranty.

Since your unit is 17 years old the capacitor is not under warranty. (unless you purchased an extended warranty plan of some kind.)

$90 is reasonable compared to the typical going rate for a capacitor replacement and service call.

Compressor valve failure


That is not correct. The system is not mis-matched. They just put a heavy condensor outside to get more air volume for your house. The failure of the valve is not to common of a failure but can and will fail. The problem with Palm Springs is the weather you get there, From very hot to very windy with sand storms to freezing rain and sometimes snow depending on where you are. What is the tech wanting to cahrge to replace the valve? Also this is something that should have been looked at closey and examined before the home was bought and that should have been known by the realator

Be sure that the starting capacitor is good. If the compressor is stuck up the starter power pack may help but sometimes it fail.
