You stated capasitor was checked . if cap. is ok sometimes start terminal wire will burn into at compressor or you may have a loose connection causing a voltage drop (more than 10%).If both check ok try a hard start kit. Who knows it might start. good luck

SOURCE: Goodman CKL60-1 Condenser Fan Runs OK, then stops

Bad bearings on the motor or check the fan rotations . Air should always blow out the top and **** in through the sides or coils.!... Thank-you-very-much!

Make sure ALL moisture and noncondensables are evacuated while the system is down.I would have the line flushed to remove all remnants of burnout.Actually with the age of the unit and amount that needs repaired I would change the unit out to a 410a system and start over.

It sounds like your defrost board failed. You will need a tech to replace it. With that model it may have a parts warranty but you pay labor(?)

SOURCE: Replaced my 5-year old 3-ton 12 SEER Goodman outside condensing unit with an older 3-ton RUDD condensing unit because of lack of funds. Now the compressor has gone out on the RUDD. Is it better to rep

A new unit will be 13+ seer unless you can find someone that has replaced a compressor or has one left over from pre 2006 stock. Our wise Government with all its resources decided that we aren't smart enough to turn off the lights to save energy, so they chose to end the med and low price lines. And the same bunch of smart ones decided that now R22 because of its chlorien content being bad for the air (5% of what R12 was) so we have R410A and others that no one knows how much cancer or daMAGE THEY WILL DO OVER TIME. So now if you replace your AC unit out side with a new one be sure its compatable with the refrigerant inside and beware soem manufacturers wont stand up to full warranty if you dont buy an indoor coil and rerplace it too.

We get what we deserve in Washington DC and if our guy didnt support this stuf too many other folks guys did. We just dont talk about it enough. AND WE SHOULD. But then again you like me are probably RITCH. So we have to give up our wealth to the government so they can redistribute it and buy more votes. And we can stay working too much to talk about it.

Just burns my back side like a 4 foot flame.

Read tween the politics and you'll get my recomendation.

Buy your self a compressor and get someone qualified to install it or see if the old goodman one will interchange easily.

Goodmans troubleshooting


Hi;
You don't mention the fan. It is at the top of the condensing unit and should be running whenever the compressor is running. The water is doing the same ob the fan does, removing the heat from the refrigerant . What led you to put water on it?

My goodman unit (1994) makes the loud noise, like a buzzing noise. The unit works, the blower blows air into the house, the air is cold, but the outside fan that blows across the condenser piping isn'


you need to replace your condensing fan motor. the noise you are hearing is the compressor working against a lot of pressure because the heat is building up in you condensing unit. Prolonged operation without an operating condensing fan motor will cause your compressor to burn up, and then you will have the cost of a compressor changeout to the cost of a condensing fan motor.

Goodman heatpump fan runs, condenser wont start


Either the condenser fan has bad bearings, or it has a defective fan capacitor.
Turn off the breaker to the outside unit.
Spin the fan blade by hand.
If the fan blade spins easily and will spin a few revolutions with no problem the fan bearings are good.
If not, replace the fan motor due to bad bearings.
I am pretty sure you fan motor is bad because with a bad capacitor the fan motor will not get up to speed and may just sit and overheat.
I'm leaning toward a bad fan motor.

Goodman ck30-1l, outside fan trun on doesn't speed up and stops, what is wrong any ideas?


Your most likely issue is a bad run capacitor. It a small silver can that is usually located in the controls area of your condenser. If the fan has been replaced it could be mounted somewhere around the fan. It helps motors run and when they fail they will run half speed,

Goodman A/C model ch42-1 cooling fan not working


These motors start with the capacitor,that could be the problem in most of the cases ,but sometimes even if the capacitor is new they don't start or after a while they stop by overload.First try replacing the capacitor(no more than $10) and keep an eye on it beacause if this fan at the condensing unit doesn't work it could damage the compresor.
