Question about Goodman CPLE24-1 Air Conditioner

3 Answers

We have had this unit for 3 years. We have had it serviced with freon and cleaned each year. The problem is that the air blows out of the vents but it is not cold. Well, for example, it was only 78 outside and I had the air set on 72. It would not give us that 72 degree temp. The doors and blinds were shut. This continues to happen, Before we purchased this unit, we had a train. There is a panel under the house that is the original from the train. Why is the unit not able to cool the air to even 72 when it is only 75 outside? This has continued to happen and we have had many heat and air men over to clean, etc. Please advise. Thank you for any assistance.

Hello
The only possible reason i can think of is the capacity of your a/c unit is not enough.

A larger capacity unit will give you more cooling power.Capacity is based on heat load or how much heat can be removed in a certin time to give you a certin temp.Say you have a 3 ton unit doing your home,you may need a 4 or 5 ton.

There is usually a 3 to 4 degree swing in temp or difference.So if its 75.f out and you have 72 inside.This is not bad.Some units will not cool with a outside temp of 72.This is a limitation for most household a/c units.

Have someone do a heat load calculation of your home and see if your unit is big enough.

Your problems could be varied,eg:
Poorly fitted airhandler panels under the house drawing in ambient air.
Low on freon.
Dirty coils.
Heat strips engaging when calling for cool.
Uninsulated refrigerant tubing.
If you continuously have to add refrigerant your airhandler coil under the house is leaking.

Hello, it is possible that the unit may be undersized for you home and not being able to keep up with the indoor heat load. The only way to determine thia have a hvac contractor do a cooling load calculation on your home. I have seen many units undersized that cause this problem.

My a/c quit blowing through the vents, there is air coming out of the top of the dash though but it is not cold air, heater does not blow through vents either. A/C was serviced recently and compressor...


Hopefully they put a receiver dryer when they changed the compressor. If so you may just be out of Freon. If the a.c. hoses were not changed they can leak too.

The compressor is running but not cooling.


Try the following to begin operating the air conditioner: 1. Plug in the air conditioner. (To prevent electrical hazards, do not use an extension cord or an adapter plug.) 2. Set the exhaust vent to the CLOSED position. 3. Press “On/Off” button to turn unit on. 5. Press Mode “COOL” 6. Press “TEMP/TIME” up or down V to the desired set temperature. Review the “Air Conditioner Features” section for other settings

Outdoor dryer vent causing the air condidtioner problem


did he clean out the dryer and clean out the vent line?dryers need to be cleaned out,gas dryer should be done once a year and electric dryers every two years.we come in,take the dryer apart,clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,blow out and vac out the inside of dryer where the motor is and if the vent line is a long run from the back of dryer to the outside vent i use a leaf blower and blow out the line,if it's clean you won't notice any lint blowing out,alot of the time when the dryer is on and heating up the vent line lint that's built up inside the vent line will blow out if the line hasn't been cleaned out,your dryer will dry the clothes better and you won't burn out any parts if the dryer is clean and not running hotter than normal from a blockage somewhere,and you don't have to worry about a dryer fire,good luck

A/c unit just blows cool air not cold air at the high range


mcdevito75 here, have your local a/c shop check it out they come to the house. You can check to make sure you have the unit on cool and that the filter is clean. Unit could use serviceing if not done in 2 years, specific cleaning and a charge of freon gas.

It blows the circuit breaker. after resetting it blows out warm air through vents in the house


It sounds as if you have a freon leak, and that is where the hot are is coming from, I had a brand New house and the first year I had to replace the compressor on the condenser unit, I was lucky , mines was still under warranty

My blower motor doesn't blow air out the air ducts why


Friend,

Happy to assist you!
Perhaps a bad blower.
But sounds like low freon!
If freon is low unit will not go on!!!!!!
Could just be low or could be a leak!
Words alone will not remedy the situation!
Dop not wait to fix it next year!
The cost will be more then Bad Infaltion!!!!!!!!!

You need to call service !!!!!!!!!!!!!
