    It was 92 degrees outside,and my heat came on

    It was last Sat. the outdoor temp. was 92.When I came up from the basement,about 10:30pm,it was 85 in the house.So I took off the white rodger stat,and jump cooling ,and still the heat was going,in the heatpump mode.So I went outside, to check the coil on the reversing valve,and it was OK,so I pulled off one side of the coil wire from the defrost board,and put it right on the coil teminal with the compressor contactor,and I had cooling.It was a fast service call,and I was lucky it worked.So that would mean my defrost board is bad.This is a five ton janitrol heatpump.

    Respectfully, You are completely over your head here. You will make what should be a very easy repair, a costly one.

    I've discovered a natural law - everything gets progressively worse. Things only break down and become depleted. Life isn't worth living and everything is going to hell.

    Death is the messiah. Everything else is irrelevant and arbitrary.
