    Rattling contactor?

    Should I replace it or it is normal? I just replaced AC unit to HP and both have rattling contactor.

    I recommend

    holding the lineset with one hand & "tasting" the line side of the contactor with your tongue. That'll tell ya everything you wanna know & more!



    MODS??!!
    WHY?

    If you can't learn to do something well, learn to enjoy doing it poorly.

    I just think you should call a pro rather than DIY it in.

    Lucky for me I don't service Yulee. Too far away with gas prices being what they are.
    WHY?

    You just replaced the unit. Now why would replacing the contactor a second time help?
    Call a tech.

    Not normal, call a pro.
    If everything was always done "by the book"....the book would never change.
