    Frown Rhenn Ruud 1-1/2 and 2 ton reversing valves sticking

    Having several failures on Ranco valves (made in China) on Rheem and Ruud 1-1/2 & 2ton heat pumps only. Any one else experiencing this problem??? sometimes the problem is intermittant. Even ocurring on 16 seer units. Some model series having trouble are -PMD, -PPB.

    I think you posted your question in the wrong forum. Try the "Residential Forum" it will get more attention.

    PS. Welcome to the site.
