Sound like possibly low on freon. Can't say for sure without getting my hands on it. Only reason to be low on freon is a leak somewhere in the system. A/C's don't "use" freon; the system should be completely sealed. I recomend turning the system off until you can have a qualified professional check out the system as it is very ******* the system to run it if it is truly low on freon.

My AC unit model is CPLE60-1. It is running, blowing cool air but not cooling house. Any Suggestions? and what is the life expectancy of this unit?


Your Goodman unit is a five ton and should last 15 to 10 years with proper maintenance. Parts do wear out though during the normal life of piece of equipment.
Cooling problem may be due to low charge, broken ducting, or other low airflow problem. Need to verify freon charge and then go from there.

To Drain:
NOTE: Draining the cooling system with the pressure cap installed will siphon the coolant from the overflow tank.
  1. Raise and support the vehicle.
  2. Open the radiator drain **** and drain the coolant into a drain pan.
  3. Empty and wash out the coolant reservoir with soap and water.
  4. Inspect the coolant if discolored flush the system before refilling.
To Fill:
CAUTION
Follow the procedure below to insure the coolant is at the proper level. A coolant level that is too high or too low could cause engine damage.
  1. Close the radiator drain **** and lower the vehicle.
  2. Slowly fill the cooling system with a 50/50 mixture of DEX-COOL antifreeze and clean drinkable water.
  3. Install the coolant pressure cap and start the engine.
  4. Run the engine at 2,000-2,500 RPM until the engine reaches normal operating temperature than let the engine idle for 3 minutes.
  5. Turn the engine off and let the engine cool off.
  6. Top off the coolant and check the concentration of the coolant using the (J 26568) coolant and battery tester.

Coolant temp rise to around 210 degrees when idling or in stop & go traffic bur drops back to around 196 when cruising. Is this normal?


completely normal those readings are perfect this car comes with a 195 degree thermostat,210 is fine for stop a go traffic remember a cooling system with the proper amount of coolant in it and under pressure will not overheat till about 240 degrees your in great shape no conerns!!!!!...

Unit not cooling house below 80 HELP ME PLEASE


It's 98 outside ... that says a lot. The gurgling is an indication that you are getting a lot of water out of the air (dehumidifying). If the unit is sized just right, or just a little too small, it may be working perfectly well.

You don't say where you are, geographically, but much to the US has an air conditioning design temperature of 95 degrees F. That means at 95 degrees, the unit will run continuously. With a 50% outside air relative humidity, it should keep the occupied space at about 75 degrees F. The more humid the air, the more the unit works on dehumidifying and less on cooling.

Give it some time, wait unti the weather breaks and see if it doesn't run just like it used to. If you chose to call a technician, have him/her take temperature readings of the condenser entering and leaving air, the suction line temperature, the liquid line temperature, the inside supply and return air temperature (dry bulb and wet bulb) as well as high and low side refrigerant pressures. Before they make ANY changes to the system (refrigerant charge) have them explain what they found wrong and make sure you understand what they are talking about. Adjusting the charge under these conditions, will mess up your operation under normal conditions.

High low fan motor


Your main concern is the temperature difference across the indoor coil for both heating and cooling. When you turn your thermostat from auto to on, you are on high speed.

If you have long duct runs and little return air registers then high speed
would help cool the house better. However in the heating mode, you
could lose up to 10degrees by having the high speed setting.

What they installed is sized for your house and the speeds should not have to be changed unless the ductwork is not sized right for the house.
Cooling should be High-Black wire.
Heating should be Low-Red Wire.

400cfm equals a ton of cooling= 1200 sq. foot, For cooling you need
High speed. For heating it is whatever the temperature rise across the
coil is, which is located on the furnace/air handler.

AC not cooling during the day


Your AC cooling efficiency is low when he ambient temperature is high and naturally it cools well when the outside temperature drops.

Please remove the filter on the grill and try to clean it under the tap water and after removing all the dust fix it back to the unit. This would increase the cooling efficiency of the unit.

Your AC is also five years old. Please avoid frequent opening of doors or windows.

Ensure that the exhaust fan and the blower of your unit are functioning normal.

The technician might not have done a proper job in fixing the area where the refrigerant would have leaked out. Please check the refrigerant pressure to ensure that no further refrigerant leak has taken place. Or even servicing your unit he would have punchered the tubes resulting in very slow leak of refrigerant resulting in no cooling or less cooling. It takes around a month to feel the pinch of it and the refrigerant. One fine morning after sometime the unit will run and it would start throwing hot air instead of cool breeze!
