    Couldn't you rig up a solenoid off of a 30 pounder? Once the suction gets below 40 it keeps adding till it's like 70... seems that'd fix it for a longer time!

    Don't laugh, I've seen setups like that. Wired through a timer.

    You sure it wasn't the thermostat?

    A whole pound? Did you write yourself a bill? Don't take a purchase order and wait for the cash and don't take no for an answer. AND definitely no sneaking out the back door!!!!.. You know what some of them deadbeats are like

    The HP TXV in my Ruud was surging a little towards the end of the winter... now it sounds like the A/C TXV is surging also...

    Looks like I get to spend a Sat working on a 'govt' job... Glad the parts are warranty.

    If your unit is old enough to use dichlorodifluoromethane as opposed to Chlorodifluoromethane (or a blend of difluoromethane + pentafluoroethane) then it should have been scrapped 20+ years ago.
    General public's attitude towards our energy predicament: "I reject the reality of finite resource depletion and substitute it with my own; energy is infinite, we just need an alternative storage medium to run the cars on. The economy can grow indefinitely - we just need to "green" everything! Technology is energy! Peak what?"
