    I take it you've never done this before.
    I would strongly suggest a professional installation.

    Who told you the warranty was still good?
    The manufacturer, or the sleezeballs who sold it?

    "Dude, you need more than 2 wires to a condenser to run a 2 stage heatpump."

    One day I had a customer call me on his cellphone from the surplus place because they had a good deal on a heatpump....My advice was: "WALK AWAY.....No, George, step away from that heatpump deal!!"


    Is it the right size?
    Is there hidden damage?
    These things can come DEAD from the factory.

    aster

    System is a match.

    4 ton 13 SEER 7.7 HSPF which is poor

    It's a low end system

    A good install will not help that POJ.

    You are not going to get any support or sympathy from this site for your situation. DIY against the rules.

    IMO

    Low end is definately right.........

    Had a customer with a brand-new commercial property where the low bidder got the work. They put Haier in. Parts support was awful..waiting weeks for parts, quality of the equipment was terrible (I don't know how they survived coming over on the boat from china in the salt air)

    Really cheaply made product with horrible customer service....what more could you want???? Put this stuff on craig's list and let someone else mess with it!!!

    P.S. Make the drop point away from where you live as you'll probably not make a friend by selling this stuff to them!!!

    You're best off taking it to the scrap yard now and get what you can out of it.
