Customer Question

I have a goodman heat pump that is less than a year old and doesn't seem to be turning on. What do I do?
JA: Sometimes HVAC issues that that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The HVAC Technician I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so we can help you best.
Customer: I turned on the air yesterday and pushed the temp way down and left it on for a while. The temp did not come down much at all and the heat pump didn't go on to my knowledge.
JA: Is there anything else the HVAC Technician should be aware of?
Customer: Not that I can think of.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the HVAC Technician about your situation and then connect you two.

For now, do you have a volt meter to do testing on your system?
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
No- is there a reset button on my heat pump? The inside part is working fine.
Expert:  Gaztech replied 6 months ago.
No manual reset, model GSC----- C stands for cooling only, not a heatpump

Expert:  Gaztech replied 6 months ago.
Thing to check before you get back to me. answer each question please.- Did you Check your breaker for your outdoor unit?- Is your indoor blower working when you set your t-stat to cool?- Is there a sound at the outdoor unit when you turn it on. Stand outside and have someone click on T-stat, listen for a click or a hum..- Open electrical side panel on AC and check that all wiring is connected, any burned wires- In AC panel check for the contactor and press the middle part to manually activate AC. here is a link picture of a contactor.Does unit start?
