    5ton 13seer Goodman HP DOA

    Was talking to a fellow tech and he has seen some issues on a new Goodman HP.

    He sat a goodman 5 ton single phase heat pump GSZ130601 unit only to have a stuck reversing valve. Or 4 way valve if you fancy!
    Would not pump either direction.

    Got a replacement condensor only to have it do the same thing.

    They put a 3rd 14seer condensor in and all was fine.

    Will we see widespread problems?

    I'd like to know the rest of the story as well.

    Because, simply put, I've NEVER seen two condensers from the same mfg be DOA in a row, EVER. I'm betting your buddy either misdiagnosed or did something wrong.
    WHY?

    I thought the same thing at first too.

    I don't think anything they did caused the first two condensors to not pump.

    The model # of unit in question GSZ130601AD that is a precharged 410A unit.
    Serials 1201124381 and 1202136829

    I just changed a Reversing Valve in one today, in the rain, and we've got 5 more to go. These things are evil. Cheap, Chinese, P.O.S. valves! And a real to replace as well! Glad it's not winter.

    Does the warantee include the labor and travel time? Never had a bad Goodman out of the box...

    That would only be with a parts and labor warranty.... Not just parts only, right?
