    Why would you go from the best to something less than the best?

    If it were me; I'd re-install the EAC.

    You are going to have to look into that. I have found things jammed into them: lumber, tarps, a blanket, animals. Are the blades bent? Has a blade come loose from it's shaft and is no opposing...

    Unless there is a big puddle of oil somewhere - the oil that was originally in the compressor is still somewhere in the system.

    Why was the previous compressor replaced?

    Please post the full...

    Disconnect the linkage and more the damper arm by hand. If it moves free then run the motor end-to-end and make sure that happens properly and on command.

    If the damper arm doesn't move fro open...

    I call: careless / stupid.

    Too much thought, talent, and calculated effort involved for anyone with a brain to be doing that intentionally. Hell you could just pull a wire off the contactor coil...

    32 is a lot of subcooling. <g>

    What made you go that high charging?

    Dual condenser fans too? Or just two coils and the original fan?

    What is the box stat set for?

    Any feel for defrost...

    This is just my spider-sense for it - but I have a suspicion that a fixed, closed, factory-assembled, packaged system, especially as close-coupled as is a window unit or other smallish appliance, is...

    It just does a little stop-speedup(backwards)-stop kind of deal. It sure sounds like backspin to me. There is a little chattery kind of sound too - now that I'm thinking about it.

    If the new compressor is rated for a +30 coil you wouldn't need the MOP valve.

    I like bigger cap tube ID for less clogging potential.

    I liked the added condenser idea because there would...

    How high is the suction rating on the new R404 compressor?

    Will you want to use an MOP TXV to spare the compressor on warm pulldown?

    I'd like to add that I would always prefer to use more length of a larger cap tube diameter than less length of a smaller diameter.

    So why does it backspin on shutdown? When it stops this one sounds like a tiny screw compressor with a back discharge check valve.

    That was my thought - but he said he didn't want to do that. <g>

    I don't understand the idea of not wanting to operate the suction pressure in a vacuum. But he said he wanted to avoid doing that....

    A more typical piping would be counter-flow: the warmest refrigerant meeting the coolest air. Which is what he already has it looks like: discharge to add-on coil first.

    Thanks.

    I think I found the relay in the shop but then Sunday Dinner started and I didn't find the start cap. It's probably just the relay anyway. <g>

  19. TPCo. Compressor AKA4476YXA - pulls 12 amps ?

    This is a 120V compressor - so I may have the TXA suffix wrong. <g>

    A friend calls me: comp. wouldn't start, trips the breaker, walk-in is warm.

    I don't have the start components and I forgot...

    Those HV systems are the best. I have one in my house and I often wish I had two. Almost un-noticable; no big ugly registers everywhere, quiet, effective, and removes huge amounts of moisture. ...
