Goodman split unit that heats instead of cools
Hi, Could be a run capacitor on the fan motor. They usually swell up and or leak when they go bad. If not, the only real way to test them it with a specific capacitor tester. A new capacitor would be cheaper. Make sure that the outside unit is disconnected from power before opening it up, try to spin the fan blade by hand. If it doesn't spin freely it may need oiled if possible. See above solution. Your problem is the fan motor though so if this don't do it, It will have to be replaced. If this helps, Please rate my solution.\015\012Thanks,\015\012kstfas
It appears the nuetral wire or improper grounding if its 120V unit. 220v unit will be a loose phase off of line one or two in panel box or unit connection. If this problem is common between other units it will be a factory design problem allow a single phase simulation to occur. Loss off phase would cause motor to slow down and overheat. Once outside unit is not functioning correctly where the outside condensor is not removing the heat through the condensor, you will get hot air through the inside mini split system.

Hi, I have a 1.5 carrier mini split heat pump. I cant find the model number but believe it was made 2000-2003. This has the remote with the infra red eye mounted in the front of the main unit (like a tv). (There is no other controller as I have seen with other units). The unit is heating and cooling fine, however, it does not seem to be sensing the thermostat. Whether it be in heat or cold, it will turn on and run for about 10 minutes and then shut off and not come again. To get it to run again,

I have 3 Fujitsu heat / cooling multi split ductless units connected to one rooftop unit. Only in heating mode and only coming from the same indoor unit is a loud almost screeching/vibration sound. It can happen after the unit is on 30 mins or sometimes not until the next day. Repair techs are stumped as they don't see anything wrong and of course the noise doesn't happen when they are here. The noise is so loud I have to turn the unit off. Does anyone know what this could be?

I first checked the contactor and it looks fine, the inside thermostat had low battery voltage...replaced batteries but still not working? Any help? Thanks
Because the outdoor unit works in cooling, it sounds as though the contactor and other components outside are working correctly. The problem sounds as though it might be somewhere in your thermostat. Has the thermostat been replaced recently? If so, ... Goodman CKL60AR60 Air Conditioner

I have an LG mini split ac / heat pump system ( LAN096 ) that is only 4 months old was working great in all ways until suddenly it quit heating. I am sure it happened quickly because I was nearby when very warm air changed to cool ( unheated ) and hasn't heated since. When I shut it down and restart it the indoor fan runs right away, which is not normal and the outdoor unit will run for a minute or so then shut down and stay off. The indoor fan will continue to spin as though it is set in a 'fan
