Goodman blower motor not working. When Goodman furnace blower motors begin to malfunction, they may need to be repaired or even replaced.
Checking out these common blower motor problems will help you figure out if it’s the motor or something else.
Your Goodman HVAC system’s blower motor is one of its most important components. They perform consistently in all weather conditions, even more so than other pieces.
As with any other part of your furnace, it will wear out with time, so be sure to maintain it regularly to ensure it doesn’t malfunction when you need it most.
Goodman blower motor not working
If your Goodman furnace blower motor has issues, repairing it can range from simple to more complex.
The most common cause of problems with the motor is a lack of regular cleaning and maintenance.
Having your Goodman blower motor cleaned may often fix the problem. Signs that your Goodman furnace blower motor has issues:
Problems with incoming power
Confirm that the power is on and in good condition so it may run the furnace. If not, check the circuit breaker or find out what could be causing the power outage first.
Replace the blower motor
Air is blown through a furnace’s return vent and then through the heat exchanger, before being pushed into the venting of your home.
Ensure that power is directed to the proper area as a way of seeing if there are any problems in the first place.
In this case, check for things like proper voltage or current flow coming from your electrical service panel.
If power is getting to the motor but it will not run when it should be running, there could be a motor burnout problem.
If the blower motor has stopped working altogether, most of the components therein may need to be replaced.
Defective Control Board
Each component of the furnace works as a source of power. The blower motor is activated by a power source, in this case, an electrical current controlled by the control board.
Regardless of whether the control board is defective if there is no power to the blower the furnace won’t turn on.
If the capacitor is out of order, there’s a good chance the fan motor will be noisy, overheat, or not work at all.
When inspecting how displeased the fan motor is about its current state in life, look at the capacitor to see if it is bulging or leaking. If it is, then it should be replaced because it can’t possibly stay that way forever.
Check to make sure that the thermostat is set correctly. This might seem obvious but there are a huge number of folks living in colder climates who fail to remember that they must set their thermostats above the room temperature.
Which can be checked easily using an infrared thermometer if you have one on hand for just this purpose.
If you don’t have an infrared thermometer handy, simply place your hands around the vents whenever you feel stifled and notice how it’s warmer on one side rather than the other.
Next, try adjusting your fan settings so that there will be more air coming out of all of the vents.
Problem with Vents and Filters
if your furnace is acting up, one of the first things that you should check is that the vents are clean and unobstructed.
Otherwise, your furnace won’t be able to direct enough air out from your house (which doesn’t sound great if it gets cold this week!).
You’d also want to take note that most modern furnaces have both air filters and vent filters; ensure these are clean as well. If your system has an improper filter installation one of two things might happen.
your heating system will either emit a loud banging noise from the area near where the filters are located or not work at all. Both situations are avoidable by simply installing the correct type of filter for your heating system.
