How to Access Goodman Evaporator Coil
Gaining access to the evaporator coil in a Goodman air conditioner may not be as easy as the condenser coil. The evaporator is set deep within the interior AC unit, and you will need to remove the front access panel before reaching it. You will also need to turn off the electric power to the air conditioner before removing the access panel. The best step is to consult the user manual for the coil’s exact location.
When you are sure there is no electric current running through the unit – turn the thermostat and disconnect box off – and you find the evaporator coil, it is crucial not to touch if you are not trained to handle or clean it. The coil is fragile and may spring a leak if you do not properly handle it.
How to Clean the Evaporator Coil in a Goodman Air Conditioner
If you are to clean the coil yourself, carefully do so and use the right type of cleaner. Do not use a coil cleaner because it may do more harm than good. There are no-rinse coil cleaners for evaporator coils. And you can get one of those to do the cleaning. This article describes how to clean the evaporator coil in a Goodman air conditioner quickly and easily.
Goodman Air Conditioner Coil Leaks – What to Do
If you find that your Goodman air conditioner coil is leaking, the best solution is to find an HVAC technician who can check and recommend a permanent fix. A coil leak can happen when there is a hole, no matter how little, in the sealed system.
It is not common to find an evaporator coil leaking; the same applies to a condenser coil. But if you replaced some parts and had to work around the coil, or even cleaned it wrongly, it may poke a hole in the coil. There is also a possibility that the problem is a factory fault, and Goodman bears the blame.
