This sounds more and more like a diy.
Someone once said at 200 micron or below, oil will boil off. I totally could not and will not agree.
If we can't replace the lines, we do not flush unless it's a burn-out. Always empty an 80-CF N2 cylinder at 600-PSI you are good to go. the oldest system done that way is now
7 years old, no problem.
You have the post count, go ahead apply for a pro membership.
You will get a lot more detailed info there.
we don't really know his heat gain, insulation and sunlight hours.
you probably are dealing with several different issues here (like others suggested)"
1. water in the pan (leveling? correct drain hole? correct P trap? overflow shutoff?)
2. wrong system charge...
I don't believe it's a fan motor. If internal thermal protection, how do you explain the 30-min thing and cycling the power solve the problem for another 30 min?
BTW, goodman never had a model GSH140181, could be GSH130181?
Too much ifo
I probably already attracted the forum cop, you need to call the original installer, the system should still be in his labor warranty.
To me, it seems that there hasn't been an air filter installed or it hasn't been changed for a long time. The tech said the unit is "new"?
One thing I know is if my customer's condenser needs a replacement, he won't be very happy to be forced to upgrade the whole system to R410a. Meanwhile, I have stocked up on jugs of R22.
another thought, don't just upgrade the furnace without investigating your duct system, most likely it won't support the full 1600cfm anyhow.
I don't know of a 4-ton coil that can be made into an "A" cabinet -
14.5" wide. Is your current coil over hanging the furnace?
a 1200 cfm blower may work with a 4-ton AC, it will just be a lot...
without looking into details (tonnage, IDDB/IDWB, air flow...), 250/90 sounds already too low (ODT 98F), but he "bled" it down? Did he vent R22 into the air? Is yes, report him and claim your $25000...
We had a TWE031 last week as well. My question is even tho the "touch-screen" tstat was wired wrong, it doesn't seem that he damaged the air handler at all. the HVAC guy should only have needed to...
If a contractor installed it for you, you should get his a$$ back to check it out. If you did it yourself, I am afraid you won't get pro answers here.
I would check for refrigerant restrictions across metering device and f/d.
you mean hall of xame?
OK, you will have a dead piece of equipment when winter comes.
The first time you turn on the gas heating, your secondary HX will be
quickly filled with water and your pressure switch will kill...
No you have a five position unit!
so is it a gas FURNACE or AHU?
model # will help.
the inside clearance between HX and cabinet is the smallest on the back. Also:
if it's a 80eff, seriously dangerous venting issues in belly-up position, in fact, only
a handful power-vented 80eff...
gas furnace can only be installed in horizontal positions with either of its SIDES on the bottom, if that unit is allowed horizontal installation at all.
how do you know it was DIY? some so-called contractors are no better than DIYers.
