Question about Goodman Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I have 2 goodman heating systems. one for upstairs and one for downstairs. The downstairs works great. With the same temp settings on the upstairs, The blower kicks on and you hear the the flame kick on but only for about 10 seconds then kicks off with the blower not shutting off. The temp then drops blowing cold air. The red LED is not flashing and is constantly on. However, when i set the thermostat i set it to 72 deg but it then resets itself to 69 deg. I adjusted all times and all days to be at 72 but changes itself back to 69deg. So, do i have a furnace problem or is it my thermostat?

I have seen this just the other day customer called and there thermostat would not maintain temp... changed batteries and after five mins did it again... couple of things need to make sure you have fresh batteries if it takes them in thermostat. also try overriding program by pressing the hold button and set where you desire see if it works then... if it still fails to maintain you need to make sure the unit is not running when it is suppose to be off... if the fan is running and the thermostat is not calling for heat or cool then it is possible the flame sensor on the heater is bad or needs to be cleaned... to be honest based on what you are saying sounds like you got two different items going on....
a sure way to test if your mechanical inclined is take the t-stat apart jump the r terminal to the w terminal go to unit and unplug for 10 seconds and plug back in if everything fires up and stays going you 100% have a thermostat issue...

My upstairs temperature is 80 degrees and the downstairs is 69 Honeywell focus pro th6000 is set at 69. Why is the upstairs so drastically hot?unit is located upstairs& thermostat is downstairs


if there is no control of air movement between floors and you have it on cooling then any cold air will go down to the lower floor
or alternately if you have it set on heating all the hot air will rise to the upper floor
where is the system located (upstairs or down stairs ) and where is the thermostat located
to get control close any upstairs to down stairs doors or erect a heavy curtain across the stair well

Not enough heat


Take an Amp draw on all heaters and compare. If within 5%, they are working fine but you may have more open area downstairs than up.

I have 2 Thermostat's in my home. My heat works well upstairs but not downstairs. My thermostat downstairs won't come on but I unhooked the thermostat from downstairs and tried it upstairs and it worked...


Hi, sounds like you determined the problem is not with the thermostat. That leaves the furnace that serves downstairs. What type heating system do you have?

I can only get heating to the radiators upstairs, not downstairs


balance the rads.
upstair radiators turn all valves off,heat will then divert downstairs,open valves upstairs 4 turns on locksheilds and number 4 on trvs if u have any.
then if that does not work get a combi or powerflush.
if u cant afford then drain a little from rads,get x300 sludge remover from plumb shop and put in header tank(not hot water tank).
then fill system up and repeat balancing.

2 zone sytem main floor cooler than what i set it to


Warm air rises and if the upstairs thermostat is on it will onerride to lower the temp upstairs. To have the dowstairs thermostat govern, the up stairs must be off . The whole house will balance to the controlling thermostat.

Goodman with 2 thermostats, freezes in summer, no heat in winter


is the system zoned? if so maybe the zoning control board to the damper motor is wired improperly. when a system freezez its because of 1- restricted air flow across coil, (maybe dirty filter) or 2-low refrigerant charge. again could depend on how its zoned.

3 out of 7 rads working with hot water


This is a flow problem within the system and you have ruled out the two major problems already.
asuming the pump has been fitted in the correct way round and the pump isolation valves are open fully. have you tried closing down the radiator valves upstairs and forcing the flow around the downstairs circuit? also is there any zone valves on the circuit not opening.
Is it a conventional type system with a header tank ?

Heating blowing coo air downstairs and warm upstairs?


Some of this depends on where the air handler/furnace is located. Most often in two story houses, it's in the attic upstairs, or in a closet upstairs. A duct routes air from the furnace to the downstairs supply duct, so it is a distance from the air handler.
When the unit first initiates a heating cycle, that duct is going to be full of cool air, and the duct itself will be cool. So the furnace has to run long enough to push the cool air out, as well as warm the duct up, before your going to feel warm air at the registers downstairs.

Keep in mind, heat rises. And, your thermostat only monitors the immediate area where it's located. In your case, upstairs.
Two story houses are problematic because of this. And one way around it is to have a damper system installed that distributes the air upstairs or downstairs based on a thermostat located in those spaces. There would be 2 dampers, and 2 thermostats (one upstairs, one downstairs). Each stat would control a damper, and the call for heat or cooling.

Let me know if you would like to consider a system like this, and I can point you to components to use. I've put several system like this in.

Jenny,

Sounds to be a system freon leak. The unit and the stat talk to each other and if the temp is not reached and the unit shut down in a set amount of time it turns on the E-heat. Now there are other facts that could be involved, plugged filters, dirty coils inside and out, etc. Check your filters first to eliminate that problem.
