    Reading your post it sounds like the entire problem is that it is icing up. I'm not exactly sure how putting a txv on would fix that problem unless it came with an R22 txv and you have R410 one or...

    I work on them all day. Who the hell wants to work on them at home? As long as my house is cool or warm when I want it, I don't care how it gets there.

    It's guys like this that make us look bad. Just out of curiosity. Where did you find this guy? Is he an actual hvac guy or some apartment guy off Craigslist that is working for $20 and a 12 pack.

    I'm with you. It doesn't sound like the OP has a clue. I think I might refer her to somebody experienced otherwise you're going to end up costing her more

    No prices allowed. Somebody will remove them for you. Turn it off until you have the money to replace/fix whatever needs fixing. I think I might call around. Things change very quickly and I'm...

    Doubtfully the contactor. You have a short somewhere. Most likely wire rubbing somewhere I'd be looking at the low voltage to the outside unit personally.

    I'll assume the US came and screwed up your country. But it seems that the Iraqi military are a bunch of cowards all the way around. They laid down their arms to the US twice, very little fight...

    Not supposed to put price in posts. Read the rules. Somebody will come along and remove them. Don't know what the costs are in your area. But about right in mine. Trane is good if installed...

    I haven't worked on one of these in about 2 years. And it could be caused by the painters. But as I recall, it's just reading the line voltage coming into the unit. It could be a board reading...

    I wouldn't mess with changing to a txv. The efficiency gain will be negligible vs. the amount of money you spend to install them and the repairs the will most likely generate. You'll have to...

    I doubt that you'll find somebody else to start up the system. I personally wouldn't. I don't want to own that thing or be blamed for something. Too much hassle for too little money. I didn't...

    Not enough voltage coming to condenser, pretty simple. The unit is only telling you what the voltage is. Nothing for you to do except call out an electrician most likely.

    Not on a heat pump, you will need a twinning kit if the furnace isn't already equipped with it onboard. You will need almost exact distances from where the "T" is that splits the refrigerant lines...

    The recall was on the smoke detectors because when the wife burns dinner and sets the detector off, you could wave your hand at it to tell it to hush, sometimes it wouldn't reset, so when you had a...

    I let them provide the Nest themselves, then if it screws up it's not my problem to warranty or do free calls on.

    There is nothing the matter with Nest. I've installed close to 50 of them with no problems.

    It's a good career field to get into overall and you can make a nice living. Not sure about your area. But, be prepared to do something called work. You will work in extreme temperatures. ...

    It could be an electrical problem in the house such as a loose connection or bad breaker. Or it could be a bad compressor. I think the first thing I would have done had you called me was to check...

    I think you'll get scolded for posting prices, they're pretty picky about that on here. Don't replace the compressor, that is a waste of time. Put a new condenser on to whatever your budget...

    You mean it doesn't stay beer can cold the entire time? Oh my. What is your experience level? Do you know how to check a refrigerant charge using SH and SC? Somehow I think you might be in over...

    I think you're getting the runaround by both companies sensing your frustration and wanting a sale. They can check the serial number on the coil and see when it was sold and base the warranty off of...

    Is the humidity climbing back up? The machine only does what the thermostat tells it to do. Make sure the little hole the wire runs through behind the thermostat is sealed up.
