Home AC not working

I turn the air on and the compressor fan runs, but the compressor buzzes about every 2 minutes like it is trying to kick on. Any ideas? Low freon?

Welcome to the forums.

It could be a low freon issue but it's more likely a starting capacitor issue.

How old is your unit and post the make and model number.

I think it is about 6 years old. Model CKL42-1L or -11

Check the capacitor in your goodman unit.
