One of the most common causes of problems with a Goodman AC is a malfunctioning capacitor. This component is located in the outdoor unit of the system along with the compressor. It is responsible for starting the compressor. A failed condenser means that the compressor will not start and the condenser in the air conditioner will need to be replaced.
There are several reasons why a capacitor can fail. Firstly, old age of the device. Capacitors are designed for 8-10 years of operation, and this period is reduced with frequent voltage drops in the network, with constant starts and stops of the compressor. Therefore, the capacitor may lose "capacity ”, thereby causing the compressor to start incorrectly.
Secondly, moisture can be a problem. The capacitors do not tolerate close contact with water very well. Oxidation and destruction of the contact group take place, the terminals simply rot, the air conditioner turns on really often, the starting current increases significantly, and the circuit breakers start to work.
And finally, a short circuit or “breakdown” completely disables the capacitor. Most often this happens due to factory insulation defects, as well as for the first two reasons. In case of a breakdown, the capacitor simply stops turning on the air conditioner that leads to a system failure.
