Question

heat pump stalls and restarts


I have a 2 ton Goodman pump approx. 1 year old. Usually runs normal but sometimes seems to stall hard and then restarts in less than a minute then runs for a minute or two, stalls again and restarts again. It will cycle like this 2 or three times then go back to running normal.
Any ideas?

Not without readings from gauges, and electrical meter.

Is the unit contactor pulling out when the unit shuts off?

If so, I would think the problem would be low voltage, if the contactor stays in while the unit is off, there could be a high voltage issue

sounds to me there is a pressure problem.. check the water lines to make sure you have proper water pressure going thru the cooling coil.. its the pressure switches more than likely.
