The TXV bulb on my Goodman SSX14030 a/c was installed in the "4 o'clock" position of the suction line.
The tech who installed it explained that for suction lines upto 3/4" the bulb should go in either the 4 or 8 o'clock position while larger lines should have it installed in either the 10 or 2 o'clock position.
The tech left all documentation including installation manuals. The TXV installation instructions specifically state that the bulb should be installed in the 10 or 2 o'clock positions without mention of suction line size.
Are there any issues with not installing the bulb in the 10 or 2 o'clock position as the documentation calls for? Does it affect the TXV's operation?
Also, the section of suction line that the bulb is installed on is not horizontal (it's on an angle). I have read that it should be installed on a horizontal run of suction line. Does this matter?
