Hmm, your suggesting high operating temps or just a bad iol ?
I am pointing out how an oil pressure control can trip without an oil failure.

the internal OL then resets.

Trust no one.
my top three dangers:

sounds like your service company knows what they're doing.
I would keep them.
I'm 75 miles from tiffin.
We let air to air heat pumps run at all temperatures.
But I do admit you don't get much heat at -13*....
We replace refrigerant compressors outdoors in subzero temperatures.
I would have the compressor replaced ASAP.
what does the installing contractor say about this?
What I am saying is that depending on the furnace is it possible that there could be a blockage between where the switch connects and where the inducer pulls from?
what or who is ECTO?
1hp comp = 1 ton of A/C (7.5hp comp is about 7.5 tons A/C)
1hp comp = .66 ton of high temp refrig
1hp comp = .34 ton of lo temp refrig
except when it isn't.
I think that's what you were...
I ordered a K16. It should work.
Gotta love the old equipment...
