    I was thinking that if it were in split, when not in HR, thats my 40%. Say it was not split and no HR. Correctly done with parallel I would expect to see 0% in normal since I see 0% in HR = Undercharged.

    I am assuming correct application of parallel. That they did not do a parallel as a series.

    That was my theory. And just needs to be proved.

    To answer Pat, to go high head on HR with out Blower on, then you know this makes Matt's theory. If it were in true parallel you ought to expect to go high with no blower (condenser fan).

    I dunno. I hope we get updates on this guy.

    So you're saying it's worked this way for a hundred years and only now has someone taken the time to figure it out? Sounds familiar...

    It is equipped with split. We don't know if it was in split. I thought it was first read.

    I see what your saying Matt.
    So if I understand this correctly, liquid refrigerant is logging in the HR, which gets worse when the blower turns on, due to increased airflow across the HR.

    LOL I'd love to but I know that's never going to happen as we pay for gas and its 22.
    Wow, thanks for so many replies. Just got back from running a few calls.

    And I'm positive that it never goes into split while in HR. It is controlled by ambient temp sensor. I'm still learning ALOT about these stores so I'm not even sure if any are set to do this. I'm used to wally world's simple hot water reclaim setup.

    I think I'm going to have to find the book again for the RMCC to see if it will open the other condenser if pressure becomes too high while in split for reclaim.

    I really don't think its split that far South and knowing the main chain down here.

    Sounds like someone has done something to the other systems.

    Someone cut circuits out of the other reclaim coil, making it work for series operation.

    I really am suspect of the split myself. And this is my stubbornness. How many guys know to jagoof the controller to keep it in split to keep liquid up and not fix it?

    I don't know if I am on something, Pat is on something or Matt is on the issue. But I do know to comprehend this and all understand each others speculation, just tells me I keep good smart company.

    I can tell you this and Pat will back me up on this. We had 65 stores here, all lead pumps, if not more than lead pumps, wired and dipswitch wrong for unloading. So, controller asking to load up, and unloading. It does not take mych to control something wrong, and then the cheaters who don't want to fix leaks.

    I am telling ya. If it were fugged up capacity wise, (parallel capacity done in series) not saying it's not possible, but it's always my last blame.

    If he works for the major chain down here than there is no split that far down unless it's a real old store.Then it's still not likely.
