    You have a home warranty and they won't fix it? What reason did they give you?
    If everything was always done "by the book"....the book would never change.

    They have given me all kinds of reasons as to why they can't fix it. The outside unit is a 3 ton unit and the inside is a 4 ton. The ac tech said they are not compatible.

    Post the mod numbers of both units.
    Some one may be able to verify either way if that is a match.
    Some brands did use larger indoor units then outdoor units.

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

    that tech that said that could could very well be full #### a 4 ton drive furnace on low speed blower could be just right and the oversized coil should not be a problem . there is a possibility that it could be a properly matched system

    Depends a little on brand.
    OD unit, look near where the copper lines attach to it. Probably just above them.
    ID unit, look around where the lines attach also.
    If you also have a furnace, it should be inside the access panel.

    OK Found the numbers..
    OD Coleman cooler 10
    model number BRCQ048B
    Factory charge 5.13 oz

    ID Nordyne
    model number CIQA-036U-B
    charge 1 oz

    Think I found the problem.. They OD unit specifies a 40 amp breaker. the breaker that keeps flipping is a dual 30 amp breaker!

    Good. Because that is a bad mismatch.
