Check circuit breakers.

take the accsess cover off of the out side unit ther you will se the contactor switch you can usually push these in with a screwdriver and the compressor will come on. if it does not it is usually the 208/240/24v tarnsformer and you can chec to see if you have 24v in and 240 out and if you have these voltages then replace the contactor

It probably has a low refrigerant charge. The air coming out of the outside unit should be warmer than the outdoor temperature when in the cooling mode and if it's a heat pump it should be colder than the outdoor temperature in the the heating mode. Check the big line going to the unit, it should be somewhere around the 40 F range and the small line should be hot.

Is the compressor running? First check your contactor and see if it is pulled in energizing the fan and compressor. If it is then check the voltage at the load side of the contactor. If you don't have voltage at the contactor then check you breakers or fuses. If the contactor is pulled in and you have voltage then check the capacitor for the fan and compressor and replace if it is bad. If your compressor is running and the fan isn't it will cause you compressor to shut down because of high pressure. If the compressor is running and the fan isn't then again check the capacitor and replace it if it's bad.

This sounds like the fan not turning during cool. You will have to check the fan relay for power during the cool cycle. The fan relay is run by the low voltage side, but still there is hi voltage present. When in heat the power goes thru the relay on one set of points then in cool goes thru the opposite side. You should have a digram present, and then on the main circuit board there is a code light. Check the light for blinking or (flash) read the bottom of the board for the code ( very small print)

That is the distributor and evaporator. Need a certified technician to repair.

Fan motor or capacitor has gone out. Running the unit with the motor not running can cause damage to your compressor

First thing to do turn off the breaker in the electrical panel, then open up the AC outdoor unit, including the disconnect box, that should be mounted on the wall near the outdoor unit. Go thru and tighten all of the screws and wire nuts, look for burnt wires, while you are at it.
Turn on the breaker and try again, if it still trips, then we look deeper;
pull the control panel off the outdoor unit and look for the contactor, this is where the power coming into the outdoor unit hooks up to. There will be a set of contacts in the control, check it out and see if the points are badly burnt,
If all off the wire checking still has not helped, it will more than likely be a bad condensor fan motor or a compressor, the compressor is the big black thing in the bottom of the outdoor unit, making sure that all power is turned off, pull the plastic cover off of the side of the compressor, there will be 3 wires, make sure none of them are burnt and touching the metal, if they are, repair the wire and test.
Try this and if you need to know how to troubleshoot to see if it is the fan motor or the compressor, just contact me back.
If this has been helpful, please rate me.
Contact me if I can help you any more.

The condenser fan motor has gone bad... this is a very common problem. Find the specs. on the side of the motor and then get a replacement from Goodman or from a company like www.grainger.com
The fan motor is rather easy to replace, the worst part is getting the fan blades off of the shaft of the old motor. Use WD-40 and be patient...

Check indoor unit filter, check to see if the indoor fan is running, check to see if out door fan is running, make sure out door condenser coil is clean, Good luck.

The first four numbers are the year and week the unit was built. 2000 week 05

Check in your attic or wherever the air handler unit is located. A lot of times, the documents are left there for homeowners to access and keep for their records.

If you cannot find them, I would recommend checking Goodman's website. If its not on there anywhere, you may be able to email Goodman and get a manual sent by way of PDF file.

I'm assuming you want to wire the compressor up to your a/c.
R or run goes to one side of the contactor, there will be a wire on that side of the contactor going to the run capacitor.
C or common will go to the other side of the contactor.
S or start goes to the run capacitor the opposite side from the wire that's coming from the Run side of the contactor.

Hi, you will need to replace this thermostat as the circuitry is faulty and keeping the strips energized. The only way to check would be to pull cover from stat and expose stat wires. Power off first. Disconnect the 24 volt hot wire, red and they should shut right off. If so get a new stat. If you need further help, please contact me. Merry Christmas.

you need a meter that will measure uf (micro farads) it should read within about 10% of the rating 12.5uf otherwise you could charge it with an insulation tester (megger) and short the terminals with an INSULATED screwdriver to see if it discharges.

I will give you my best suggestions based on the information that was provided. It sounds like the blower motor is trying to come on several times unsuccessfully and then the flame is shutting off. If this is the case, here are my best guesses.
  1. If the blower motor has a run capacitor, the capacitor could be bad and the motor is trying to start but is pulling too many amps and tripping out on the internal thermal overload. You will need a multimeter that is capable of checking microfareds to determine if the capacitor is bad. Capacitors are usually marked....you will commonly see a marking of 5uf, 7.5uf, 10uf, etc... Sometimes all you need is a new capacitor. These are not very expensive.
  2. The blower motor itself may be bad.
  3. If there is a fan switch, it could be bad. A fan switch has a set of contacts that are normally open that will close when the switch heats up and send voltage to the blower motor. These will eventually wear out and act erratically if at all.
  4. The motor may not be getting the proper voltage, this too can cause the motor to pull too many amps.
  5. The most likely reason the flame is shutting off after the blower fails to come on is because the furnace is tripping on the high limit switch. This switch typically cuts the 24 volt power to the gas valve.
I hope this helps!

That means you have lost 24 volts somewhere.

The most common causes for that are as follows.

1) a blown fuse. (usually a blade fuse mounted on the board)
2) a broken/loose/disconnected wire.
3) a bad 24V transformer.

When the unit loses control voltage (24V) it brings on the blower motor. This is done for safety reasons.

Goodman... | Answered on Oct 03, 2009

test the capacitor, if its bloated its bad, check the breaker. i would need some more info to help you more.

Goodman... | Answered on Sep 26, 2009

Yes there is a tool that you can buy to replace the valve core without loosing charge.
