    Actually, in the "Old Days", we got by without roll-out switches by properly maintaining the equipment. Today everyone thinks that once it's installed, nothing should ever have to be done with it. ...

    Valves went bad, not a burnout. Did an acid test, is OK. I did install an oversized HH drier though, just for safety sake. The problem is oil return. Line set isn't set up to return the oil to the...

    You Can Use One

    But it MUST be installed in the common suction line after the reversing valve. Problem is, many units don't have enough room to install them without re-piping the whole thing.

    This unit was a 1/2 ton system. When he changed it to R-22, he "up-sized" the compressor and evap. to 3/4 ton. I suggested that he should change the entire condensing unit out and go with R-134A. ...

    SSDD

    Reminds me of when I saw the same thing on a heat pump. Except they forgot to put the piston in. Worked great in cooling, but the heating was screwed. How it worked in cooling is beyond me.
