superheat is determined by outside temp and inside temp. Usually the superheat will be 15-25 degrees to get good cooling back to the compressor.

mcdevito75 here, It could be 3 reasons, First the lower the outside humidity the less cool air your A/C will blow out, 2 Turn off your unit for 10 minutes and re-start with fan only for the first 3--4 minutes then adjust for A/C. 3 Your unit needs serviceing, Freon charge.

Hello my name is Heath it will be my pleasure to assist you. The first thing to check is make sure the thermostat fan switch is set to auto instead of on. The next thing would be the High limit in the furnace or the rollout. If there is a sight glass on the bottom door of the furnace check to see if there is a flash code in the furnace then check it to the plate inside that has the flash code diagnosis chart.

Hi and yes if this motor does not have sealed bearings, buy a oiler called a zoom with a telescopic spout and oil the bearings. I wouldn't replace this motor unless it starts to slow and get real loud. Sounds like its just dry bearings. Don't replace it until its to the point of getting hot and stopping on its internal over load.

The bearing may be going bad, but that should not effect the cooling much if the fan is running...there must be other problems...

Here is a tip for other things you can check....

if "not blowing out with any force" is refering to the outside unit .. then make sure the fan is turning and up to speed .. if not then make sure it turns freely without power .. if not then lube the bearings or replace the fan motor ... if it doesnt start at all but turns freely by hand then replace the starrting capacitor (about 3 inch metalic rounded rectangle with wires going into the compressor and fan) .. make sure the condenser coil is not clogged with leaves (wash out) ... if you are refering to the inside unit not havinng much force .. then replace the furnace air filter .. check to make sure the blower turns freely ... check the evaporator coil for blockage with dust ..

Go outside to the condensor, its unlikely that the fuses are there unless it is an older unit. Turn off the power and open the power disconnect box. That is one place the fuses or breaker could be.

In the house you should have an electrical panel usually grey in color. Open the service panel as it should be hinged. Most of the time the fuse or breaker is labeled AC Unit andThe rating should be
anywhere between 25amps-60amps.

Hi, even though I am a contractor, I order complete units when needed. You would have to get it at a appliance parts house or you can try and go through a a/c, refrigeration wholesale parts house and pay cash. This is the only way that I know of you getting one.If you knew someone that had a contractors license, they could get it for you. We can't order parts on this site for people that need them, just try and solve there problems. I am sorry, but hope helpful on this.

Verify the compressor is running. If it is then you need to get the refrigerant charge checked. If it isn't, check for an overload that may need to be reset and use an ohmmeter to check the compressor motor winding. The fan and compressor run off of the same contactor so I would think it has power to it. Does the fan and the compressor use the same capacitor? If they do and you haven't replaced it yet then try that first.

If you remove the cover where the power goes in the outside unit there is usually a wiring diagram on it.

Goodman... | Answered on Jul 17, 2010

You need to replace it with a matching 3 pole capacitor. Look at the rating on your old capacitor, on a 3 pole it should read (ie): 5/35 mfd. This is a split type capacitor and usually controls 2 motors. There are a wide varety of capacitors. Also, one of the terminals will be a common terminal, so be sure to put it back together correctly.

Hi, well you have 1/2 of it right. Recheck the wiring and wire it color to color as you are not getting 24 volts to the condenser. If you have a gas furnace and not a heat pump you will only need 2- wires to run the outdoor unit, red and yellow. Make sure the dog didn't chew through another section also.

Goodman will circulate the air in your home and not use the AC if you desire ... it takes several minutes for Gloodman to cycle on ... longer if you go from hot to cold or cold to hot ... and the more you play with it ... the longer it takes to cycle.

Try it again in a hour ... set it and let it be.

1) Fan Shroud
2) Electrical Service Panel/ Electrical Cover
3) Electrical Disconnect-which is usually purchased
and mounted to the house.

If properly charged your unit should perform fine, having a dirty condensor at that temperature can cause problems not easily recognized.

A well insulated house should be able to maintain a 20 degree temperature difference whether its summer
or winter. No Mechanical cooling or heating involved
for at least 6-8hrs if not more.

If it never cools when it is 95 degrees outside the ambient outside temperature is not the problem.
At 95 degree out side air you should be seeing inside discharge air temperatures betwenn 48-55 degrees.

It is the load in the house that determines how long the unit will run at 95 degress.

Check the capacitor for the fan. Has the fan been replaced recently? If so make sure the start lead is connected to the capacitor.

Goodman... | Answered on Jun 19, 2010

you may want to replace (or tests it first) the capacitor what may happened is that the capacitor short out and then it inverted the poles so when you turn the air on it starts backwards. the capacitor is like a tiny cylinder that keeps electric charge and it will spark when you turn it on that makes the motor move, the cost depends on the model and it should be close to the motor where the fan is just follow the wires.
here are some samples of what a capacitor look likea4b809c.jpg8507f3e.jpg

let me know if that solves the problem

Shut it down and make sure the cooling coil and filters are clean. Ice usually means one of two things
1. dirty filters or coil
2. low gas (freon) charge
