What's the btu rating on the AC?
X2. Charging by sight glass can get you in trouble. Stick with SH/SC charging.
Hmm, only two posts too. Smells like... DIY.
I disagree. Like others, I say it helps the motor run efficiently and that it puts the electricity in better phase alignment in addition to the boost it provides to the motor.
If the reversing valve is energized in cooling, you should get 24v from O to common or 0v from R to O. The AH provides the 24v for the outdoor unit to run after all.
H310 in serial means it was made 10th week of 1983. So it's about to turn 31!
You answered your own question? o_O
Any wet bulb measurements?
What generation control is it? I was with another tech and we had a first gen give us a bunch of error codes but the furnace worked perfectly when doing the test mode.
X2 Check the install parameters. If it's set up for conventional it and you have a heat pump, ain't gonna work!
I see his name a generally skip over the post xD
Could be the gas is condensing to liquid. Where are the tanks located?
Duplicate thread jp. ;)
Amperage would drop, not rise. Ohm's law states R = E / I. So as an example, a 240v element drawing 20A would have a resistance of 12 ohms. This is constant. So drop voltage to 120 and now E / R...
Probably because most homeowners wouldn't ask a question like that. ;)
I could be wrong as well, but with air to air heat pumps I'll look at suction pressure and ambient temp to generally base charge. Typically I go with ambient minus 15 to 20 degrees for SST. Depending...
I didn't think it was the air handler (unit is a HP). Just wanted to see what others thought.
Got a call and HO has an issue with dust in master bedroom on the second floor. It's south facing with two supply registers, and there's a central return which is located on the first floor...
Send out resumes and applications even if they say 2-5 yrs. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
Try asking beenthere or jpsmith1cm. Both are PA and I know beenthere is a one man operation; don't know about jp.
Oldest I've seen thus far are through the wall Rheems from 1973. And a whole apartment complex has them. O_o
Weatherking also, or is it weather master... One of them since rheem/ruud is the parent co.
Gotta love that factory smoke.
When the element comes on, does it glow? Just wondering if there's not enough airflow (fan speed too low perhaps).
Once found a cracked HX and the HO said his girls had been experiencing slight headaches, but they thought it was their fireplace in the basement not their furnace in the attic.
