    Thanks Nick, yes I have TEC's. 37 I believe. I do have access to report builder. I will look tomorrow to see if I can see trends. Compared to ALC, this Siemens is in the stone ages.

    Obviously there is exhaust air. There has to be. Hopefully its not in an office building. We don't have enough info here to give advice. No reheat? New install or existing?

    L1 and L2 are connected by the primary winding. So, yes, you would see 120V to ground on L2 if the L2 fuse was blown. You would not see voltage between L1 and L2 as they are now the same line.
