Top 20 Goodman CKL24AR24 Air Conditioner Questions & Answers


I would think the condensor motor bearings are worn. Try testing for end play and side to side play of the condensor motor shaft, with the power disconnected.

Fan motors have rotations, clockwise and counter clockwise, lead end and opposite lead end. If you are looking at the motor from the fan blade side and the wires are on the back (opposite) side of the motor then you are looking at opposite lead end. Then you need to determine the rotation of the blade. It will scoop the air, so turning the blade that direction will give you the rotation. They also sell motors that you can change rotation by changing certain wires they have added.
When you replace a motor you need to notice the rotation and order that rotation. which end of the motor you are looking at to determine it. Then order the same rotation when buying the new one.

If you have a split unit, it is fairly simple, just feel the small refrigerant line coming out of the unit. The temperature should be warmer than the surrounding air. If is not running the temperature will be the same as the surrounding air. If you have a package unit, take off the access cover to where the compressor is located. Find the compressor discharge piping to the the condensing coil. It is the smaller of the two major pipes on the side of the compressor. Be careful the temperature of line coming out of a properly operating compressor will be hot enough to cause second degree burns. If the line is very warm to very hot the compressor is running. If you have a set of gauges, attach the RED hose to the high pressure service connection and the other low pressure hose BLUE to the bigger pipe low pressure connection. Make sure the gauges are isolated by shutting the valves. The pressure difference between high and low pressure is normally at least 150 psig diference.

it is a question of efficiency. they try to keep air moving across a cold coil.i dont like it in our humidity in houston it results in the air picking up moisture and adding it back to room.

Typically the outdoor fan motor does not need to be oiled because it is sealed and permanently lubricated.

bad motor or blade.

You can try recharging, the refrigerant system has an electric switch for low pressure cut off that won't let the compressor turn on when there is not enough gas pressure. There is also a coolant temperature electric thermo switch that cuts off the compressor when the coolant or engine has overheated. If it's not low on refrigerant gas, then an electric problem needs to be diagnosed. A service or repair manual would then come in handy.

capacitor? will hum if contactor pulled in but no ac power. will hum if contactor pulled in and bad capacitor. depends on how lowd the hum is. loud hum prolly equals bad capacitor

no you cannot put a 2 1/2 ton compressor into a 2 ton condensor. you could put a smaller compressor into a condenser and you will gain effeciency put loose capacity

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.

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!

turn off power remove blower housing (screws and wires) use a crescsent wrench to loosen bolt and reset wheel on shaft in the center of housing and then retighten bolt be sure to set it on the flat part of the shaft then reinstall in reverse order
