Hello, I did not know if I could post as a guest of if I had to make an account, so I made an account, here is my problem...... We purchased a home with a Goodman ac unit (outdoor) model # GSH130301AB serial # 069037947. It was working and keeping the house cool and has been since we started using it. It was nice and cool this morning but in the evening I noticed it getting hotter in the house. I summed it up to just be the fact that it was so hot out today (105 in the shade) but when I looked at the thermostat it read 86.5 when it was set to 70. I went outside to make sure it wasn't frozen over (my mom’s advice) and found the fan to not be spinning. I heard a low hum and then called my husband. He told me to try and get the fan started. I started to turn it and it started up, a bit louder than I remember it being. I went back inside and waited an hour and the temperature was still going up! My question is what does this sound like it could be? I had a man tell me that I would probably have to replace the entire unit he said it would run me about $ for the unit and the labor, someone else said maybe the motor on the fan :gah: Please help. I have a 4 month old baby and we both get hot easily.

Nee a good tech to come out and check it. Probably don't need a new unit.

Sorry, we don't help with DIY diagnostics, nor recommend sites that do.

it's likely an electrical problem that needs qualified service techs to repair.
a diy site is just going to recommend possibilities, and expose you to hazardous high voltages, and possible damage to your equipment with no liability.
really. find a qualified SERVICE company and they should have no issue finding the problem, and fixing it right up.
on beenthere's post is a link to locate techs from this site that are in your area!
feel free to post back what they find, and if we agree with what they tell you.
