Question about Goodman CLQ36AR49 Air Conditioner

Another Goodman compressor

I had that "liquid slugging" problem going on about two months ago, when the sequencer did not turn the fan on, but the compressor was running anyway.  It ran afor a few days like this before I discovered it.
Now I have the opposite problem- the fan works but the compressor tries t start... i guess it's every 60 seconds or so, but regardless, the compressor unit outside buzzes like it is trying to start, then nothing.
Is the whole comressor unit shot?

My Goodman condenser which was recently replaced is making a severe swashing noise when it stops. Like a back flush or something. Need to know if this standard.


Normally if it does not sound right, it is not right. By your discription it sounds like your compressor is having a problem with flood back caused by a txv not metering properly, or an overcharged system. You will need a tech who can determine superheat and subcool for your refrigerant system. Find a tech who can determine these values. Superheat and subcool is normally around 8 -12 degrees. Superheat is the amount of additional heat the refrigerant picks up in the evaporator once it is turned to gas and is needed to keep liquid refrigerant from flooding back to the compressor. Compressor are designed to compress gas not liquid. Subcool is the additional cooling refrigerant undergoes once the refrigerant turns back into into liquid in the conderser. Subcool ensures the refrigerant remains in liquid form until it reaches the metering device. Only liquid suppied metering devices will pass the required amount of refrigerant to achieve the rated cooing or heating rates. If it is liquid flood back, your compressor will be damaged and will need to be replaced. Hope this helps

Hi,
If the fan is running and the compressor is not running then you should be getting power to the compressor...
Often the dual capacitor will go bad and then the compressor will not start.
I usually change the cap to make sure that is not the problem.
If the compressor still does not start then check the start amps and you will find that you are probably getting locked rotor amps. or no amps... (open windings)
Either way you will have to replace the compressor...

I have a goodman air conditioner and the fan stopped I felt heat from the top and it was loud what could be wrong. the builder installed it about 2.5 yaears ago.


You are probably hearing the compressor run, thats what is loud.
The compressor should cycle on and off to protect itself. You are
probably looking at replacing the fan motor.

Do you have to charge a 3 ton 410a unit split as a liquid? on a 85 d day


Hi,
It is always best to charge 410a as a liquid to ensure that you get the proper mixing of the refrigerant...just turn the can upside down and take your time adding the liquid slowly...with the unit running.

When 13+ SEER condensers are replaced without installing a inside coil with an expansion valve the compressor in the new unit will slug and go bad. Slug means that liquid refrigerant returns to the compressor. Liquid can not be compressed so it causes the compressor to fail.

When a compressor is has to start. 1. HAs it been off longer than five minutes. As a service tech when I run on to this problem I install a hard start kit and a time delay. The start kit helps the compressor to start under heavy load condtions. The timer helps the compressor to balance out before tryng to start. Have tech set at 5 minutes. I install hard start kits and time delays on all my change outs. Replace problem will go away. Thanks Rus

Inside blower not starting every time


That's a weird problem. I wonder if the outside compressor is drawing down the voltage in the breaker box enuff to keep the blower from starting up. If you're set to cool but the thermostat is NOT calling for the AC, can you manually turn the blower on fathfully? If so, I would check all wiring connections in the breaker box to make sure they are tight and free from tarnish or corrosion. You may even need to contact your power company and have a higher amperage line installed outside. Do your house lights blink noticably when the compressor kicks on?

While you're resolving this, you could start the blower manually and just leave it on. The compressor cycling on/off shouldn't stop the blower once it's running and it won't draw much current... couple bucks a month maybe.

Hope that helps...
