    I'm one and done on those units as well. Went to a warehouse that was being refurbished. They had about 8 of these units about 30' up and only access was with a scissor lift. I don't know about you...

    SS, a few questions:

    When you say "reed switch/PCB board", are you talking about the rack start switch?

    Is the rack start switch actually inside the machine (conveyor), or by the front loading...

    Dumb question - does the unit have a delime switch behind it? If its in delime mode, it would stay running while the delimer does it job.

    I do all aspects of HVAC-R as well as hot side.

    What I love? Never a dull moment. Different places 3-4 times a day. Some customers can be real buttheads, but most are generally cool people. You...

    You'd be surprised. I've run into where the line sets are looped under the ceiling and over time friction leak occurs. Fast leak - likely on the high side. Its not insulated, either. Could be rubbing...

    Just curious, how were you turning it? I had one the other day, an SS-120 (or 125) that was frozen solid. I had a couple of big crowbars working this thing back and forth - it would barely move and I...

    That is, unless you have hot side under your belt. Still averaging 5 OT per week, and with the addition of a few new customers, it looks to stay that way.

    Now that I'm home, I decided to google the controller. This thing literally has hundreds of settings.

    One of them is "Parameter F3 Fan on/off during defrost". I had no idea. Possibly NOT a bad...

    Trippin is right - I predict we'll be seeing much more of these little controllers. I wonder how those teeny tiny relays can handle the amp draw of the elements (but in my case, there were 3 rows of...

    I just came from a call. WIF warm, coils iced frozen. This has one of those new digital controllers mounted in the condensing unit (its actually a new package Heatcraft unit).

    Out of curiosity, what should the delta T be?

    And I only thought Trane units needed the coils split. Do most brands need it done?

    This brings back nightmares for me. I had this one location that lost this compressor nearly every year. Luckily the customer got tired of this clunker and swapped out the unit.

    At least the compressor wasn't under warranty. I've done that once, toss away a compressor that our parts dept said wasn't under warranty, then our warranty dept called asking where the compressor is.

    Nope, small under counter. I suspect the unit has been shoved behind this wall for so long that it overheated - I know what overheating can do to a 134A system, but this is 404A - so I'm not sure...
