    What do you think?

    American Standard condensing unit trips thermals. Was able to briefly check before tripping again...takes forever to reset. Coils, fans, capacitors were good. Head pressure operating at 340 psi with 70 psi suction, not enough time to measure SC or SH, @ 90 degrees ambient. Discharge line extremely hot(out of compressor,into cond) and not even warm leaving condenser (almost cool even). Compressor drawing 22.3 amps (Rated Load Amps 18.6). While off on thermals and cond fan still operating refer pressures never equalized, as a matter of fact 10 min into it static pressures were 290/ 136 psi.

    Are you a pro. If so the answer should be right in front of you. Get your post count up and apply for pro membership.

    If a homeowner we can offer no DIY help and you need to get the unit serviced.
    Its a good Life!

    Im not sure he is a pro, especially if he was expecting the discharge line not to be very hot, and yes the answer is in front of him.

    WHY DONT YOU READ THE SITE RULES , NO DIY . You obviously do not know what you are doing, so call someone who does. You are not going to get your answer here.

    If you are a pro there are professional forums here where you can get help with technical issues such as the one you're describing. You have to apply for "pro membership."

    If you are a Pro,please understand the assistance you need is only available in the Pro section.

    No this is not like other forums you may be familar with.This forum requires we keep things that could be used for DIY in the Pro area.

    Could have been explained better to start off,but take a breath and look into becoming a





    pro here,it's very worthwhile.
