Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll do my best to help. Let's get started and see what we can do.Sounds like the compressor is cutting off for some reason.Do you have a set of gauges to check charge. THe compressor may be cutting off due to either low or high pressures.

I don't have gauges but I have had 2 techs out over the past few weeks one today and thay said the pressures looked good
HVAC Technician: airheatman, HVAC Technician replied 2 years ago
Do you have a volt meter to see where we may be losing the voltage to compressor?If air is not getting colder in house, compressor is shutting down.WE need to find why. Intermittent issues can be a pain if working when tech gets there and then stops when he leaves. Was either tech their when unit was not cooling?

No they weren't I do have a volt meter when it is not cooling the condenser fan isn't running either
HVAC Technician: airheatman, HVAC Technician replied 2 years ago
That is what makes me thing it may be a pressure issue, Usually on a Goodman heat pump, the low and high pressure switches are wired so that they kill power to the contactor which engages fan and compressor.

That's what I was leaning towards a possible high or low pressure cut off switch, are those known to go out or is it more likely a pressure issue like a bad compressor or expation valve, my cousin is coming tomorrow with gauges what should my pressures look like
HVAC Technician: airheatman, HVAC Technician replied 2 years ago
Pressure switches rarely fail. If cutting off on pressure issues usual causes are outdoor fan quitting,dirty condensor coil,incorrect refrigerant charge or metering device sticking.The gauges will tell us which direction to go.
For example if head and suction were both high, that would reflect an overcharge. If both are low would reflect low charge, If suction goes into vacuum that would reflect restriction such as metering device and if suction normal and head high, low air flow across outdoor coil.

I see the switches either work or not , wouldn't cause an intermittent prob . Sounds like till i can put some gauges on it and wait for the problem to happen I am done
HVAC Technician: airheatman, HVAC Technician replied 2 years ago
PLease let me know what you find when connecting the gauges.
