Goodman h/p not cooling

Everything starts and runs condenser and attic blower. lines are not getting hot, and can't hear movement of the refrigerant in the lines like i usually have. the house lights are dimming acting like something is trying to start on it periodically. the digital tstat middle button is green, but now there's a yellow light next to it on the right. any clues.

    condensing unit stops for 2 or 3 seconds then restarts


1 Answer

Whle your fans are running, chances are good your compressor isn't. One line (the smaller one) should get warm to hot and the larger line should feel cool or cold. If that's not the case there is a good chance the compressor isn't running. OR it's low on freon.

The goodman air conditioning unit will randomly turn on and run for a few minites then turn off. The blower fan does not run just the unit in the attic. Any advice?

Hi, not enough detail not enough detail. I have no idea where you are located, but if it is a gas heater/ Ac then maybe the attic space is so hot that the over temperature sensor is turning the unit on in an attempt to cool the system down. If however it is a refrigerant AC unit, I would suggest that the control circuit is faulty, maybe a sticking contact somewhere. good hunting col

A/c is blowing but it is not cool air will freon

Hi, so you have a central air split system, with the gas furnace in the attic and the condenser outdoors. Unless you had a service tech out and told you your system was shot, you more then likely just have a problem with the outdoor unit. Yes, it may be a freon problem and it needs a charge, or some minor problem in one of the electrical circuits not bringing on the compressor so there would be no cooling. $6,000 sounds about right for a complete system, but I don't believe at all that's what you need. If you are familar with electrical, or you are able to go to the outdoor unit to see if you can hear the compressor running, and the outdoor fan is on, this is the place to start. Look it over, turn the unit on and make sure the blower is coming on in the attic. If so, make sure the outdoor unit is up and running. You can take off a panel and hear the compressor to see if it is on. If so, its very possible it is just low on freon. You will have 2- copper lines coming out of this unit. Place your hand on the large line and see if it is nice and cold and even wet, condensation. The smaller line will be much warmer, even hot if its running ok. If you find that the compressor is on and the line is warm, sounds like it may just be a leak and you should call and get a tech out to check this for you. It may be many things, but check to make sure that what I have told you is ok, and keep me posted. Until we find out what is going on, don't let them tell you you need to install a complete system. I am sure you were just checking. Please give me the model and serial number, and name of the outdoor unit if you would be so kind. And the age and over all condition that you think it may be in, like the last time it was serviced. I will wait to hear back from you, so we can get this up and running.

I had my a/c charged today because it has not been cooling the house down. It took less than a pound, but it still blows worm air. Fan and compressor all running. I cleaned outside unit, filters, replaced...

It could be that it is not charged correctly. Check the insulated copper
line outside if it is sweating and the condensor is discharging hot air, then the ac is doing all that it can. Check the evaporator inside to see
if the drain has condensate coming out of it.

Getting the heat out of the attic is a good idea, but you must have enough make-up air in the attic for the fan. If you do not have enough
make up air, it will start to draw air from inside the house. One way to check this is if you have a gas water heater and or furnace. If you put
a flame by the exhaust pipe in the basement and it blows it out, then you now have a backdraft problem.

Run the AC withoutthe fan, my real guess is the unit is not properly
charged or you do not have a big enough AC unit.

My air conditioner gives out cool air not cold air

Welcome to FixYa
Check the Following
Is your filter clean? Look and the evaporator in the inside unit. Is it frosted up? Do you have condensation water in the pan? Go to the outside unit and feel the air coming out of the fan. Is it warm? Now feel the 2 copper pipes coming out of the unit. Is the small one warm or hot? Is the larger one cool ? Is there moisture on it?
Air conditioner runs but doesn't cool at all
If the airflow is good and the air coming out is not cold, your home air conditioning problem may be a temporary problem - your coils may have frozen. Turn the unit off for an hour to let them thaw, then try again. If cold air is now present, freezing coils were the problem; if the problem recurs soon after turning on, you may need to replace the coils. Again, call a pro. If you have ceiling vents in upstairs rooms and the air flowing from them is consistently warm, you probably have leaky or poorly insulated ductwork in your attic. See my Attic ceiling insulation page for more information on insulating ductwork that runs through attics.
Another likely home air conditioning problem if you have good airflow but no cooling is that the breaker to the outside unit is shut off, which, depending on the installation, can either cause the air conditioning system to not run at all, or to appear to be running but not provide any cooling. If you can hear the compressor fan running outside, the breaker is on, but if the outside unit is silent the outside breaker may be off. If switching it on does not solve the problem, look for the high pressure cut out on the condenser and try resetting that.

One of the goodman condensing unit for my house starts good every thing works fine, but it runs OK for couple of hours and by then the refrigerant line connecting the unit condenses and it will not blow...

The refrigerant line is actually supposed to condensate, but if you mean "freeze up", thats a problem. The condensation occurs because the line temp is lower than the outside temp, kinda like a soda can outside. From what you described, Im pretty sure you are either over or under charged on refrigerant. The reason it will not come back on for a couple of hours is because the compressor is in "protection" mode and has to cool down before coming back on. When you are low or high on refrigerant, the compressor has to work harder which over heats and trips the internal overload switch. Have the unit charged properly and you shouldn't have a problem.

I have a GMPN080 horizontal gas furnace in attic of my home. What is the purpose/function of the drain trap assembly in furnace. Cooling coil is external to furnace?? Please advise, looks as if someone has...

The reason for the trap is to compensate for the negative pressure the drain line is under. Since the blower is pulling the air, if the trap wasn't there, then the drain wouldn't drain properly.

By having a trap, your blower is pulling air back through the trap while the condensate water is allowed to flow and drain.

With that being said, if you have water forming in your emergency pan, its an indication that the main drain line is clogged up. If you know where the drain line exits the home, take a small shop van and vacuum out the drain line. If its really backed up, it will sound like a golf ball through a garden hose.

If your trap has a clean-out installed, I would recommend pouring some hot water and bleach combination down the trap itself after you have cleared and flushed the drain. The bleach will assist in killing any mold/mildew that has accumulated in the drain.

Also, while your in your attic, ensure your emergency pan has a float switch and that its operating properly.

Goodman Model CK60-1C with White Rogers mercury tube thermostat

The contactor on the outside unit is sticking and must be replaced. The inside unit cycles off and the outside continues to run causing the refrigerant lines to freeze up.

Goodman compressor cuts off when temp too high

I believe you have 1 of 2 problems going on here your system may be overcharged causing the compressor to cut out on a overload relay circuit internally, or it also could be tripping out a high pressure switch which could be from an overcharged system or a dirty condenser. I would have the tech come out on a 90 degree day and put the gauges on and check the pressures while it is operating under a full load.

Hope this helps you.
