    Traced it out and found a dead. half-rotten rat in the main duct.

    Try burping the system.

    Have you checked the possibility of an air bound coil?
    Air becoming trapped at coil high points can cause water flow to be sluggish.
    Try venting the system at high points until you burp it.
