goodman makes the cheapest unit on the market bar none. they are the absolute lowest end of the scale when buying a system. they are for that reason the best selling unit in the industry. so you should expect loud and clunky performance. expect only that they will perform, but dont even begin to expect them to perform quietly or smoothly. your warranty is only a year on these cheap pieces of equipment compared to a 5 or 10 year parts and labor warranty on trane and am standard equipment,so the labor will eat you alive on the cheap stuff. and when the expensive parts fail they will be really expensive.all compressors are now manufactured by about three compressor manufacturers, copeland tecumseh and bristol. so what ever brand you buy will have possibly the same compressor in it. all ac s in recent years have expansion valves that require a hard start kit. many cheap sluggo installers will not add the required hs kit even though they know it is needed and required by the manufacturer. so if the txv ( thermostatic expansion valve ) is a non pressure equalizing valve it has trouble starting against unequal pressure and voila , the compressor wont start. i have seen many a dumb+++ add a start kit to boost starting torque when the oem run capacitor is in fact weak or bad . if run cap is weak (test it) the start cap will temp fix. but you have not really fixed the problem if the run cap is bad eventually it will fail then no start again etc. despite the fact its a year old heres what you need to do. check filter for cleanliness. vacuum out drain for clean and clear drainage, run unit 15 minutes on a warm day , check run caps on fan outside and on compressor outside . they should be within 10 percent of rated mf values printed on side.feel suction line, cold? ok. not cold? call a pro for under charged or inefficient compressor. if cold then look at contactor points. they should be clean and golden colored. no char ,no gray or dark areas. a pro can tell with gages if charge is low or compressor is weak. as high pressure falls off and gets low ,suction pressure gets weak and rises. this would be a weak or bad compressor. as head ( high) pressure falls and suction pressure also falls this would be a case of low ref charge. you as a home owner can stick a cheap thermometor in the incoming and outgoing duct and expect to see a difference of 20 degrees . less equals low charge, or weak compressor,

SOURCE: outside unit not working

If the heating and cooling is working O.K. and maintaining the proper temperatures it is possible that your outside unit is in its off cycle. If the inside unit is running and the outside unit is not with an elevated temperature inside check the power supply to the outside unit. Most units have a disconnect located near them. Check the disconnect and make sure it is set to the on position. Listen for a hum noise at the outside unit which could indicate that the control power is being supplied to the contactor.

Clicking sound is the contactor engaging to start the outside unit. Check for a burnt off wire at the contactor. For some reason you are not getting power to the outside unit. If you find a burnt off wire shut off all power to it then remake the connection at the point of the circuit break.

SOURCE: Goodman air conditioner will not turn on outside

When ever you hear a buzzing like you are hearing means one thing one of the fuses on the outside disconnect box is bad. Only getting 1/2 the power. Find the bad fuse and get the same size and will be good to go. ken

SOURCE: Replaced my 5-year old 3-ton 12 SEER Goodman outside condensing unit with an older 3-ton RUDD condensing unit because of lack of funds. Now the compressor has gone out on the RUDD. Is it better to rep

A new unit will be 13+ seer unless you can find someone that has replaced a compressor or has one left over from pre 2006 stock. Our wise Government with all its resources decided that we aren't smart enough to turn off the lights to save energy, so they chose to end the med and low price lines. And the same bunch of smart ones decided that now R22 because of its chlorien content being bad for the air (5% of what R12 was) so we have R410A and others that no one knows how much cancer or daMAGE THEY WILL DO OVER TIME. So now if you replace your AC unit out side with a new one be sure its compatable with the refrigerant inside and beware soem manufacturers wont stand up to full warranty if you dont buy an indoor coil and rerplace it too.

We get what we deserve in Washington DC and if our guy didnt support this stuf too many other folks guys did. We just dont talk about it enough. AND WE SHOULD. But then again you like me are probably RITCH. So we have to give up our wealth to the government so they can redistribute it and buy more votes. And we can stay working too much to talk about it.

Just burns my back side like a 4 foot flame.

Read tween the politics and you'll get my recomendation.

Buy your self a compressor and get someone qualified to install it or see if the old goodman one will interchange easily.

Why does the compressor on my goodman package unit turn on and off before completing a cycle while the condenser fan runs?


Two most common issues are a bad run capacitor or the compressor is over amping due to bad bearings.

Goodman Model CPLE24-1C - Unit will run and cool but after running for an hour in 100 degree plus heat - Compressor will not restart the next time the thermostat calls for restart


First off, the unit shouldn't be running continuously for an hour, that's a sign of the unit being undersized for the house. So, therefor the house is probably heating up so quickly that the compressor doesn't have time to equal out pressures to restart again, especially in the 100 degrees.

We have a Goodman CKL49-1 - 10 Seer - 4 Ton Condenser. One of the wires that fires the compressor keeps burning and, of course, the compressor won't come on. It is beginning to happen every couple of days....


A bad connection in the power wiring, the circuit breaker, disconnect, capacitor(s) or in the compressor contactor (worn contactor) can cause this due to very high resistance and subsequent heat production. If the unit will run, it should be amped checked to trace the cause.

This assumes that the wiring is correct and that the unit was functioning properly before these issues manifested themselves.

On the bottom of the indoor unit should be a cover or tray. Sometimes a large grill inside the house, close to the unit is where they are placed. Good luck
