i have a 5 ton trane hp (i believe XL1000). bad compressor - shorted to ground. i've never replaced just a compressor on a unit. how do i know the reversing valve is working (unit is holding good pressure - appx 150). Next question. On some old units, you can't find the same compressor i was told, so does it really matter what type of compressor as long as it is the same BTU, volts, and size? I don't want to replace compressor and unit not work?
I was told at the supply house that on these units, changing the condensors only have been burning compressors up within a year. so it seems the best solution might be to replace compressor, thanks for any help
