The installations were change out's, 2 were new construction jobs. We have stopped using them for about 6 months now, July of 2004 wat the last one. Primary location of leak, was inside the cabinet on the right side, on the coil header. We will not install American Standard or Trane 410a systems unitil we feel the problems have been addressed and corrected. Not picking on Trane here, I worked for Trane as a field service manager for years, they have great equipment, and I still sell American Standard & Trane commercial systems.

That's interesting coolguy and cde. How old were the systems you had problems with. Were the systems installed on new construction, change out, retrofit? We all know that new construction is the hardest on a new system. The company I work for averages about 20 heat pumps a month with about 12 of those being 410a systems. The only real problem I know of is the factory recall on the XL19i, but that's an R22 system.
