    Yeah because when he moves it to the other side of the house it is very unlikely it will have the exact same length of lines. So you would have to charge it according to the new location.

    I guess I should have mentioned that I'm closing down the high pressure service valve and because this is a heat pump I had to jumper the reversing valve wire to put the system in cooling mode.

    Why are you jumpering the unit to put it in AC mode? I would go to the thermostat and put it on cool. Just recover the extra and adjust to new location. R410 is cheap.

    My tech is the old school type and he thinks that this could be a scroll type compressor with a pressure bleed off that wont allow the pressure to drop below 50 psi to protect the compressor.

    I'm very confused about the way this went down.

    Tech came out to your house.
    Pumps back unit.
    Comes to you and says "unit won't pump down below 50psi".

    and then....leaves? Tells you to go online for the answer?


    How the heck did you get from there, to here?
    "Better tell the sandman to stay away, because we're gonna be workin on this one all night."

    "Dude, you need more than 2 wires to a condenser to run a 2 stage heatpump."

    "Just get it done son."

    Dad adjusted

    Merged threads.

    As far as I can tell, you are not a tech, so please don't start any threads in the Tech to Tech forums.
