Goodman GPH1430 Blower Fan Not Coming On
1.5 year old unit. Blower fan not coming on. Tested in A/C, heat & fan only and blower fan does not engage. T-stat appear okay - jumped fan wires and nothing. Compressor and compressor fan come in both heat and cold, but still no fan.
The X-13 motor is new to me as there is no external fan rely, so is it possible the defrost board is bad? Can abad defrost board cause the fan not to come on?
It was 90 degrees outside & I was surprised to feel that the blower motor was actually cold to the touch. I know the fan has an internal thermostat control... the coils are not frozen either.
Recurring Problem w/X13 Blower Motor
I had this same problem several months ago where X13 blower fan stopped working, but compressor still ran. I turned systme off overnight and in the morning, the blower motor started working again. An HVAC tech stopped by the same day and could not find any problem with X13 motor or system - all was great!
Two months later, I experienced the same problem today where the X13 blower fan stopped working, but compressor still working. Blower fan won't come on in fan or A/C modes. I turned system off and will try turning on the fan in an hour or two.
The last time I had this problem (see previous posts below), I turned the system off all night and in the morning, the fan started working and all was okay.
Do you think I might have an intermittant issue with the X13 motor; something burnt out or perhaps the X13 motor's thermister is acting up? The motor is under warranty so perhaps I'll just have them send a new motor and get the HVAC guy back out to install it?
The system is only 1 1/2 year old and your thoughts are greatly appreciated.
