Question about Goodman CLQ36AR49 Air Conditioner
My air conditioning unit is about 5 years old inside and out. 3 years ago the outside unit stopped working, compressor was replaced. Now when it gets hot in the afternoon it shuts off and will not come back on until unit has cooled down. A/C guys have switched fan motor, but still does it. Then wires burnt out when overloaded, had it fixed, then wires burn out again and cause a hole in a pipe outside, all freeon lost. Hole fixed freeon reloaded, shuts off again, why can these a/c guys not figure out the problem? I have not cleaned the coils in attic since having new unit as there is no door to get in there, could this be the problem, or do I need a new compressor (5 year warranty is about to expire)? HELP - thanks
Only 1 answer above is a good answer!(Thomas) My opinion! Goodman will not replace the entire unit. No manufacturer will do this except in the first 30 days after installation. Inside that unit is/should be a factory installed filter drier. I'm betting whoever changed the compressor, didn't change that drier. If not, it's restricted and causing the compressor trouble. Please, have another experienced professional out for service. Have all your previous invoices available. I'm a sole proprietor, meaning I own and run my own company, and from my experience here in Texas, most company owners do a wonderful job for the customer. More than half of the "employees" I've worked with in the past, are either inexperienced, or have a DONT CARE attitude about what they do. When you call, ask for the owner/operator to show up. Ask for someone with 15+ years experience. OR, call a local HVAC supply parts house and ask for a recommendation on a qualified sole individual. You can also check with the local state licencing regulation department, using their license number, and verify that this company has a good reputation, and not many complaints filed against them. Also with the better business bureau, to try to get them to make it right, though a second opinion is the route I would take first.

As stated you need a second opinion. I don't believe your compressor is bad, I think your system is either overcharged has a failing expansion valve. Get a different company out there and request their most experienced tech and explain to them the history of the system. There is an underlying issue in what I believe to be your refrigeration circuit. Possibly overcharged due to static or the duct size, hard to say without servicing the unit myself.

I'm sorry that you're having all those problems. that would be frustrating, especially during the warmer months. I think if you've spent so much on getting it repaired, you may want to consider getting a new one installed. It would help to do some research to see which company would be your best option for installing and maintaining it. Try asking around for recommendations and see what your friends and family have to say about their A/C unit brands and installation services. http://www.washamplumbing.com

Hi! AC Unit
Sorry you have had so much trouble. Sounds like with the factory warranty being in effect the whole outside condensing unit should be replaced. With this type of problem there could be some blockage in the AC lines. With out some pressure reading it is hard to tell if the expansion tube is plugged, or there is some other major problem. If your service tech is unable to diagnose the problem you may need to get a third opinion. Goodman may have a factory representative in your area. You may be able to find some help with a different dealer or online. Good Luck! I will try and look for any changes.
