Question about Goodman Heating & Cooling
The blower works for heat but will not work on a/ci have changed the fan control broad but it made no differance
is this a new problem? the fan speeds can be adjusted by changing wiring connections. If it is a new problem on an existing system then it could be the t-stat or a problem with the curcuit control board. the switch on the t-stat for FAN is set to auto not ON. if set to on the switch to auto - problem solved.

Absolutely, however, you want to properly diagnose the reason why the fan is not running. It could be a less expensive part than the fan motor itself.
First, check to see if you have the proper voltage going to the motor. I believe your motor requires 240volts ac. If you do not have 240 volts, you have a control problem.......either the thermostat is failing to close R & G or your blower relay may have failed to close the contacts necessary for your fan to operate.
If you have the voltage, then you want try spinning the blower wheel with your hand. Does it spin freely? Is the motor warm/hot? If so, turn everything off for an hour or so. As soon as your energize it, try spinning the motor with your hand again.....if it spins freely with no resistance and then starts running by itself, the problem is the run capacitor (approx $20.00 depending on where you purchase it from). If there is resistance when you try to spin it, the problem is most likely with the bearings and you will need to replace the motor.......if you have to replace the motor, go ahead and replace the capacitor also, making sure it is properly "matched" with your new motor.
I hope you find this to be very helpful to you, moving forward. :-)

SOURCE: My Nordyne air handler has
Hi, there are a couple of things that will cause your air handler to ice up, some you may be able to take care of your self, and the last you will need to call out a service tech. First of all, you must have a clean filter at all times. 2nd, if the indoor coil has gotten dirty, this will cause decreased air flow across this coil and it will ice up very bad. Cleaning or I should say, getting to this coil to clean can be a job. You will have to bend the sheet metal panels, remove some screws, and work around the freon lines to get back to it enough to remove the sheet of dirt that is covering the coil. It will peel off like a sheet. When they get this way over the years, they will block the return air back through the coil, and it will ice up.Once it is cleaned, you may have to buy a roll of aluminum tape to seal the areas that didn't go back together very good. If your blower motor is not moving air very good, like it is ready to go out, moving slow, or making noise, this will do the same. The last thing that will cause this, is the unit has a small freon leak. If your air handler is gas, you can turn on the heat to melt the ice off faster, if not, turn just the fan on to melt the ice away. Once its gone and you have good air flow, turn the a/c back on and go to the outdoor unit. Place your hand above the fan guard to see if the air is good and warm to hot. Find the large copper line below and grab hold to make sure it is good and cold and is starting to condensate. The smaller line, discharge should be good and warm to hot. This will tell you the freon level is real close to being full, so your problem will more then likely be a dirty, plugged indoor coil. More then likely, this is your problem and would be something you could do your self to save you $$$$. I hope I have helped you on this and given you some direction to go on. I have done this for many years, and know the signs very well. Please don't forget to rate me as I know you will be kind. Please keep me posted on the outcome.
