    generally they will be on the condenser, evap, oil sump if seperate from compressor, discharge line. if a component can be isolated or valved out it can have a relief valve.

    that was not the question you first asked. compressors will also have a internal pressure relief valve.

    Wow, I see Mustafatel's join date is Mar 2012 and he's banned on March 2, 2012. That's gotta be some kinda record. And he has 36 posts. Must have worn out his welcome....

    Yeah, he went ballistic somewhere.

    Looks like he failed a test, and decided to ask all his missed questions here, or cheat somehow.

    Then got mad when people called him on it.
    "Better tell the sandman to stay away, because we're gonna be workin on this one all night."

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

    "Just get it done son."

    Dad adjusted
