Question about Goodman CKL30AR30 Air Conditioner
The fan system works but the unit outside does not. I can hear a slight electrical hom so it seams to be that power is getting to the unit outside but it is not running. I have reset the circut breakers. Is there another reset on the unit itself inside the actual box?
That is correct also. Down here in Tornado alley, we have lightning strikes all during the summer months, and from experience ,we mostly have tripped breakers and or exploded or swollen capicators or that little silver can. if it looks swollen at the top then it exploded and needs replacing.Also look in the outside disconnect box for blown fuses, oh yes ,the light humming noise comes from the contactor being pulled in by the inside 24volt system from the furnace. Thank-you very-much

Depending on where you live, there are electrical codes that require a 'disconnect' near the outside unit.. This is to be removed prior to servicing that unit and prevent the service person from getting injured if someone inadvertantly turned it on The humming sound you may be hearing may be the fan motor insise that unit, It is possible that the lightning strike generated a surge that damaged that fan motor winding.. With the protective screen removed and that unit disconnected from power.. try spinning the fan by hand to make sure it is free to turn, then reassemble everything and see if will start up. If it is a 220VAC system then you could also be missing one phase of power..You might want to contract an electrician for that aspect of troubleshooting. Be careful and goodluck..
