Condenser fan: 1.2A . Blower: 4.3A . ambient: 90 . liquid line: 104. SH: 0. metering device: piston . Suction pressure: 75. wet bulb: 60.
Customer reset wet switch five minutes before I arrived. Found a small puddle of water in the safety drain pan. Water dripped out of air handler. Water appears to be blowing off of coil/pan. I lowered blower speed to prevent blow off. Relocated expansion valve bulb. I also insulated suction manifold and installed drip tie to suction line before it exits cabinet. Warranty.

Replaced warranty evaporater coil
Turned on system. Found hard start kit contact sticking on! Replaced hard start kit under parts and labor warranty. Tested cooling operation. Checked Freon pressures. I found compressor valves leaking: whistling during off cycle. Compressor valves are worn, reducing system capacity. I also found expansion valve in air handler is restricting Freon flow and not regulating system superheat properly. This may cause evaporator coil in the air handler to ice up. Work suggested: thermostatic expansion valve in the attic needs to be replaced. A $1203 repair. I would recommend applying recent repairs costs toward new system if possible.
Found circuit breaker tripped. Reset breaker and it immediately tripped. I found burnt wires at compressor. Had to cut out burnt wires and install new terminals. Tested compressor amp draw. 8.8A. AC is cooling at this time, but needs cleaning. Also, condenser coil is very dirty. Freon level may be low. Needs to be cleaned and then checked. Work suggested: AC clean and check: $99.
Installed temporary blower motor and wheel till new system is installed
I pumped down system. Removed and replaced evaporator coil and coil case. Called in measurements. Installed proper size orifice. Installed filter/dryer. Installed sheet metal transition Fabricated by Chris B. Chemically cleaned condenser coil. Back flushed packed in dirt using water saber. Topped off Freon level topped off Freon level. Per superheat chart. Ambient: 83. Wetbulb: 61. Superheat: four.
I removed electronics sensing safety. And installed float type safety in to secondary drain outlet of air handler. Tested operation. Shuts off condensing unit when drip.

Cleaned and checked air conditioner. Checked drain. Checked voltage and amperage draw of motors. Tested capacitors. Checked Freon level: low. Leak checked and found evaporator coil leaking. Needs new coil. Rinsed off condenser coil. Work suggested: air-conditioner is 28 years old. Uses the old type of Freon that’s being phased out. Recommend replacing air conditioner. Replace evaporator coil: $1479. Chemical cleaning up condenser coil: $135.
The float safety did not lift high enough to trip. I found PVC fitting cracked. Had to cut out and replace fitting and trap and piece of pipe. Drain pan threads are worn. I attached using Teflon tape to secure and seal. Drain has fragile attachment to stand due to warn threads. I adjusted float safety attached to safety pan under equipment. Work suggested. Replace drain pan for evaporator in the attic.

Serviced air conditioner
I found bad wire connection causing compressor to not start and overheat. Repaired wiring. Compressor is still overheated. Could not check Freon level at this time. Replaced clogged air filter. Expect compressor to start after it cools. Work suggested: air-conditioner cleaning: $99.
94 Goodman system. Check the zoning system. This is a slave type zoning system. Second floor zone is a slave. I found system low on Freon. I found condenser coil clogged with dirt. I found furnace and blower grossly oversized. Also, capacitor for outdoor fan motor is very weak. I added 1# R-22 Freon for temporary cooling. Close to full charge. Superheat: 20. Expect Freon to leak back out.
Spring maintenance on 3rd Floor ac system!
Had to blow out drain with nitrogen and level to get it to drain.
I found system low on Freon. Charged system up for temporary cooling. 4 pounds of 410-A. Work suggested: Freon leak search: $189. Freon leak repair: $? Need to call and schedule.
Check second floor AC performance(9K5F). Thermostat setting: 70. Thermostat reading: 72. Checked temperature at vents. Wetbulb: 67. Supply air: 67. Return air: 71. RH: 73%. Found condensing unit not running. He had been running. I Checked/tested all connections. Tested thermostat. I traced down intermittent opened in circuit to be at foat safety located at condensate trap. I bypassed float safety for temporary cooling. Need to order a new part. Work suggested: schedule maintenance for air-conditioners. May need Freon topped off after cleaning. Also, need to check integrity of ductwork in the attic. May have leaks. Need to order new float safety.
Check second for performance. Checked temperature at vents. Wetbulb: 67. Supply air: 66.5. Return air: 66.5. Checked Freon pressures. Suction pressure: 63 (36) suction line: 48. Liquid line: 109.
