I sent an e-mail to the address listed in your profile last night before I posted this.
Provided it's wired properly from the factory and the charge has been released from the unit, return it to Goodman. Oh, did you buy this online? That may be a problem then......... Contact your online retailer for assistance. This unit will be 410a, not 134a. I hope you evacuated the system below 500 microns or you can kiss it and any warranty you might have had good bye.
And, since it won't run, in order to cut it loose and return it you will need to recover the charge with you refrigerant recovery machine. You obviously have one since you had to recover that R22 from your old equipment.
A good HVAC tech knows how, an educated HVAC tech knows why!
Thanks to those who provided constructive thoughts.
I figured it out tonight. I found it difficult to believe that a new unit would have a failed compressor.
I added a hard-start kit ... that changed the symptoms a bit, but didn't solve the no-start problem.
I finally decided to track the compressor wiring ... Bingo!
The red lead from the main circuit board to the compressor start-capacitor was disconnected at the circuit board. It must have vibrated loose during transit.
The condenser fired up without issue.
I let it stabilize ... measured superheat and sub-cool ... a small tweak to the TXV ... adjusted charge ... and it works like a champ!
Yes, it is possible for a homeowner to install HVAC. I find it enjoyable to learn new things ... The tools are not that expensive ... except for a recovery machine ... so I hired a local fellow with the proper equipment and certification to pump-down the old R-22 unit before removing it.
And sorry for confusing refrigerants (that was my automotive background slipping through) ... of course it's a R410a system
