    Regarding inverted traps---

    Just remember that the purpose of an inverted trap is to prevent the liquid refrigerant from draining by gravity from the coil into the compressor during the off cycle.

    So, if the air handler is...

    So, the seasoned tech blames the problem on you for not checking the compressor terminals, but he didn't check the terminals either until after he was ready to button things up and walk away!

    Time for a second opinion

    A. A leak can lead to a compressor "failure", but if your compressor worked long enough to produce a cool suction line as you described, my "guess" is that the compressor is ok. Compressor...

    I'm not sure what you mean by the phrase "Head pressure: 118F 83 + 35 = 118F"

    Head pressure and High Side Pressure are the same, and pressure is in psig, not degrees F.
