Everything on the front panel works but the compressor does not kick on. we had a power outage and since then it isn't working right.the unit is about 3 years old.

Sounds like you have power surge damage. The compressor is fine but the electronics are fried. Next one add a surge suppressor.

I had a power surge on my 15 year old HVAC residential Trane Unit. I can either have my insurance repair it or I can pay the difference to replace. I do have coverage to pay for Alabama state building...

13 seer minimum for new installs. I have seen ratings as high as 18 or more on
some units (410A systems)
I recently replaced my system with a 13 seer R22 system, since they are
more easily serviced and I am very familiar with them. Given the average lifespan of
a system before major service is around 10 years depending on model.
I have worked on Trane, Carrier, Intertherm and Goodman units and prefer the Goodman
units, as they seem to be much quieter running and are built in America.

Although I know it is not recommended, I have no choice but to plug my AC into a surge protected power bar/extension. I have done so for the last 2 summers, no problem. I take out my AC to install, last...

The best thing I can tell you is, that Danby does not recommend it. Even an extension cord is not recommended, unless it is a 14 gauge and no longer that 6 feet.

Several questioners in the past, have used a surge protect power bars and ended up frying the electronics of their AC units.

But, in the end, it's up to you.

What could be the problem if for the past 3 years your heat pump freezes up during the winter months? A defrost control board has been replaced every year for these past 3 years

The defrost board is very easily fried by power surges...
Seems that over the summer the board gets toasted and you have to replace it...
a good commercial surge suppressor may help keep that from happening...

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.

We have had our home 4 years (new). When the AC cycles on, the TV in our room snaps - like there is a power surge. Last year, we had to replace the condenser on the AC. It's an Ameristar AC system. Any...

You should use a surge protector on your electronic devices, (tvs, computers) because the AC unit may be imposing a voltage spike on the power line.

Could be a voltage problem on the circuit that feeds the AC unit. The replacement condenser may not have been installed correctly

Power surge

the stabiliser would have fused out so replace the fuse alone then the unit will work
