This is for my HVAC brother, so I have not seen the unit.
But he wants to know the tonnage of the a/c as he wants
to install it tomorrow.
(And he's too lazy to read HVAC-Talk. :)
Okay, back from my day. The heat pump was the first call, about 7:20am, because the lady
had said it made the dreadful noise only when it was cold. I got there and ran around to the
Yeah, I was thinking that were there a problem with it being STUCK in defrost,
they would have likely complained about the poor heating. They didn't. Of course,
they DID say it would stay on for...
This unit had only a schematic and some charging charts,
nothing too useful.
Elsewhere on the forum, I read that Trane heat pumps tend to
use an outdoor...
(The Search did me no favors.)
I know a lot of gas valves on condensing furnaces, especially the ones
with sealed burner boxes, had/have vents on their gas valves, but would
it be a mistake to...
OH!!!! I see.
Learn something every day. :)
Thanks for the heads-up. It won't let me edit, so I flagged my own post.
Maybe your browser cached my old profile?
Anyway, thanks again.
Yes, that nicely sums up the two kinds I've encountered.
Thanks for the attempt, Rundawg.
The address in my settings is correct.
I've never seen one of these units before.
The ignitor was in a big separate cannister, not on
the main board. The...
I was troubleshooting it this past week and noticed it goes into
lockout after just one FAILED ignition attempt. Lots of dip switches
on the thing, but customer was not given manuals for it. (Not...
Not the the scale, the meter.
I love my Fieldpiece scale too.
(But my multimeter is starting to go blank briefly
after about three years. DS (?) 35. But I will just
buy another. Fluke products seem so antiquated
I first noticed something was wrong when I heard the compressor's internal
pressure release in heating mode.
Then I switched to cooling mode and this time watched my
gauges. Low-side dropped...
We didn't do the install and we've only been caring
for it for six months--it is an 05-- so I'm not absolutely certain
this package heat pump was never opened, but let us
suppose it wasn't opened,...
My brother does HVAC, but not this forum.
He had a problem with high superheat.
========He wrote to me (only siightly edited. He has some very
dry humor so I'm thinking the ice cube stuff is...
Look for an open safety switch.
I screwed up and broke my 3/8" today.
It is probably the one I use most.
But I am suprised to not see any replacement heads
sold separately from the whole kit, either from the manufacturer
The outdoor unit and furnace were Ruud-labeled.
But the evap coil only had a few markings on its label.
Curiously, it had no model number but DID have
a serial number:
The top line...
But the circuits cannot all be flowing the same refrigerant. They must be separate.
How is that accomplished? A diagram would be good.
Okay, I googled.
Sounds like a variable speed motor.
But I'm really asking about the pumping of refrigerant with multiple circuits.
Oh, of course.
(Waiting for kindly elaboration......or a link or something. Thank you.)
My google and search skills are not turning up anything about how these
things work in regards to multiple heads. I'm thinking they don't
have a compressor for each head/circuit, but I have no...
I was rushed so I didn't really pause to check the schematic for clues
on this, but this unit--which has two compressors and two condenser
fans--would periodically stop one or even both of the...
