You need a pro. To try and diagnose this online would be extremely time consuming and dangerous.

I'm assuming you are talking about the capacitor, which stores a charge of electricity to give the A/C a "boost" to start. There are a number of possibilities that can cause these to fail, but the more common ones would have to be extreme heat, power surges, or a compressor that could be
going bad. Either way, most companies carry at least a one year parts warranty, and some will even do labor. If this is happening on a regular basis though, the electrical system needs to be evaluated and someone needs to make sure that the right capacitor is installed. Hope this helps!

Hello my name is Heath it will be my pleasure to assist you. The answer to your question is 3.5 tons. The 42 represents 42,000 btu and you divide that by 12,000 wich is equal to one ton of cooling and you get 3.5 tons.

Most likely a bad motor or bad capacitor. I would check the capacitor first as this is probably a $20 fix. The fact that it runs in the correct direction but at a reduced speed really leans hard to the capacitor.

Good Luck and hope this resolves things for you. Let me know.

check to see if the fresh air vent is blocked. If the unit is outside make sure nothing is blocking the air flow ie. grass, weeds, etc.

If these are clear, you probably need some "freon"/ coolant installed.

Hello, based on your serial number It looks like the unit was built in Feb of 07. If the compressor is trying to start you may either have a bad capacitor or one of the windings in the compressor is open. Start by replacing the capacitor as it is inexpensive, if it does not work than looks like your compressor will need to be replaced.

As long as your replace the motor with an identical replacement, there is no need to know which way it turns. It only mounts in the cabinet one way. But since you're asking, if you're looking at the unit from the front (the controls), it turns clockwise.

The contact assy is a tri-stated device. It has an internal solenoid that is energized when the thermostat sends proper voltage to it. It should have 5 wires going to it and is typically in a rectangular shape. there are 2 wires going in/ 2 wire going out and 1 for the solenoid. It usually sits at the back of the compressor housing in a recessed area, it could also have a capacitor (looks like a big "D" cell battery) sitting next to it. It usually has a panel to protect if from the elements, its a very simple remove and replace. if you are going to replace it yourself MAKE SURE TO TURN OFF THE POWER TO THE COMPRESSOR !!!!! the fuse box next to the compressor, open it and flip or pull out the breaker.
You might have Ants that have attached themselves to the contact (a very common problem) you can clean them off and spray the contact will bug repellent. It might fix it, but chances are you will have to replace the contact. After install, spray it with bug repellent to cut down on the re-occurring.
It might not be the contactor. It may the the start capacitor for the compressor. To check the capacitor: Turn the breaker on and with a screw driver push down the contactor to cause it to engage. If the compressor turns on, then its the contactor, if not the chances are its the capacitor....also a very easy fix. Good Luck

What type/model of thermostat? Please inform.

There is no reset switch.

The piston is too large. Have a reputable heating and air technician install the proper size piston and this will correct the problem. Cost should be 150.00.

Goodman... | Answered on Sep 03, 2011

With such limited information, if everthing else is operating normally then the system has the wrong piston installed in the air handler. A smaller piston needs to be installed.

All compressors are different if you can strip down the comp it takes a good bit of knowledge if you can't strip it down you have to replace but without makes or model no of comp your guess is as good as mine as there are so many types...

The orifice or the expansion valve are for a three ton unit and you only have a 2ton...so too much gas is going through causing low discharge and high suction... install correct orifice or TXV and you'll be okay...
