    Probably, because your reading the same line! Like R-W on a call would read 0. But if system is off you'll read 24 volt. Because common is backfeeding through your load because it's de-energized.

    I think around here they size for 130 condensing temp and 20 or 25 evap temp. I'm just saying your compressor at those conditions only outputs 10 or 12,000 btu's. Is it hot in Tucson?

    Some of these other guys know alot more about sizing but at 25 suction and 130 head the chart says your compressors only capable of 10,800 BTU's and you need 16,000. Is that right?

    Here's the expected amp draws at the given pressures. If it's close then i guess you can count out a weak compressor as the problem. Maybe that rx11 flush clogged up your evap! :grin2:
