    The modules from the Gentech Evergreen motor work great too and often are the same price or less than the OEM module alone and available at pretty much every supply house. Match the HP of course....

    Thanks Timebuilder, that's the most concise description anyone has laid out on that topic. Basically the 180 degree phase difference can only be considered an inversion and not a separate phase...

    Drill to the center of the earth and make peace with the subterranean lizard people in hopes that they will help us overthrow the Obama administration so we can finally get REAL president?

    No the question is, why is this posted in a technical forum?

    Apologies to the OP for the derailment. The importance of understanding electrical theory can't be overstated in this trade, so keep it up. Sometimes the difference between a good tech and a great...

    If you were to take a voltage reading between capacitor common and the " run" side of the contactor, what would it read?

    Other than the obvious function of providing power to the the fan and herm terminals there is nothing that can be done on the capacitor common that can't be done from the contactor terminal that the...

    Common on the capacitor is nothing more than an extension or hub of the Line voltage that the run windings connect to.

    Also despite the terminology, 240v single power has 2 distinct phases. I will never understand that, I just accepted it and moved on lol

    Common on the cap is common only for the cap. It is completely unrelated to the motor commons.

    That is baffling. Does the sound disappear immediately after the condenser shuts off continue for a few seconds? It may be originating in the condenser or the air handler. Which thermostat do you...

    Just remember that there is no Common winding, only start and run. The run winding gets supplied with 120v and the common supplies the other line of 120. The start winding is fed voltage that goes...

    Just because the air handler says 3621 in the number doesn't mean it's not a 3.5 ton system. The condenser is what determines the bulk of of the system capacity and yours is 3.5 tons.

    Since the...

    Do not use the SUPCO start kit it is a cheap 2 wire connection! Install on of the industry standard 3 wire connection kits. Use either the OEM part or a 5-2-1 Start kit. I would probably change the...

    I've used pancrete with success a few times. Sealed up some pans on some old floor mount chilled water air handlers and sealed the base pans on some old rtu's that were just trying to get by for a...

    If the compressor valves were bad, neither of them could pump. It's
    likely an electrical issue and not with the board.

    That is the sad truth about our industry and I can see the difference in quality after being in the field for just 14 yrs. I had a 30+ yr old GE/ Trane system that the compressor had been miswired...

    I apologize if this had been brought up already but there are a few things to address.

    Yeah, its against building code to seal the eaves at least in my area.

    The ducts sweat because the dewpoint raises as the temp drops and humidity goes up. We get that all the time down here on houses with spray foamed attics. The temperature in the attic stays in the...
