Now I digress...My wife calls at work and says the A/C made a gasping noise and died. I drive home from work, check the system and yes, there is no A/C blowing through the house. I go to the basement, and hear the freon circulating, the outside unit still spins, etc. Therefore, I think it is the blower motor (quick google search). I call the repairman, he comes out and "yes, it is the blower motor and the control board." I now notice the lack of status light and a burnt mark in the middle of the Goodman board. He lets me know that he can repair the whole thing for $1500. I get my game face on, google some more and discover the board can be here in two days (he needed three...wonder if he orders from the same web site). $125 dollars and 15 minutes later, the board is swapped out and the A/C is blowing like a champ. Funny, but the motor was not bad. I am tempted to call him and tell him what a loser he is...but, he has my address.
Anyway, if it is not the freon or gas connector, you can repair it yourself and make $250k a week (at least for fifteen minutes).
