    Tex1202,

    Couple things.

    First off, this isn't a DIY forum.

    Second, this is the introduction area. This is where you say "Hey, I'm Tex from Texas and I'm a ________.

    If you need help, you should post a thread in the appropriate area.

    AOP Residential if you're a homeowner seeking assistance

    Tech to Tech residential if you're a tech seeking help with a problem.

    Also, as I said earlier, this isn't a DIY forum, so the information that is divulged in the open forums tends to be limited. If you're a tech in the trade, you'd do well to make a few posts (15, I think) and apply for Professional Membership and access to the closed portions of the site where in-depth technical information is exchanged.

So I recovered and leak checked no leak and charges back r22 I put a little more mabe hAlf pound more then normal just to see if it would freeze it did . It wouldn't go past 30 sdegrees saturation pressure for evaperator. So I put it it in heat mode it's a split heat pump and it worked then swith he's back to cooling didn't then switched to heat and this time bothe high and low pressure kept rising so my thoughts are reversing valve. But I'd any one that could help thanks william

    they are a lot of work to replace to find out it was not the problem .to check a rv valve temps in should be close to temps out and it needs to shift .

    Well, I have a couple of ideas that need a closed forum, so work on becoming a pro member, and ask this in the Pro residential forum.

    Be careful when using spellcheck. There is no diatribe uution line.
