    Sorry, you've come to the wrong place for DIY help. Need to find someone qualified to be working on a heat pump.

    Defrost thermostat.

    Sounds like a restriction somewhere. Could be bad metering device or trash floating around in the system.

    I'm also surprised that a service tech doesn't know which tx valve to check. NO DIY.

    What would you check, if it was a piston metering device.

    Picture the refrigerant systems flow in your mind.

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?
