I have a 5 ton 10 seer goodman heat pump, still running fine. My problem is, now I don't want to use it as a heat pump anymore, so I took the coil wires from reversing valve, and put them right on the compressor contactor coil, by-pass the defrost board. Now the reversing was staying in heat mode last nite, so today I turn it on again, thinking about replacing it, I started up, and the reversing switched, and it is working find all day, cycles and maintain temp. thru out the day. My question is, should I keep power on reversing valve all the time, so I can't take changes hanging up. Buy me time so can price condensing units. This crazy, but it would be nice while it is in cooling mode, I pinch off a pilot tube so it can't go back to heat mode. THX
