    new member-heat pump issues needing advice

    I have Trane xl1800 heat pump with a trane 5 ton air handler. The system seems to cool fine but when I call for heat it is the luck of the draw if it heats or blows luke warm/cool air. The outside fan is running-it is not stuck in defrost, the emergency heat works when I call it on. If the system has been off awhile or if I toggle back and forth between cool and heat it will sometime work. The only options I can find is either a short or the reversing valve is getting stuck. Any input/help on what I should look for would be appreciated. I have not check voltage at t-stat or condensor yet or tested the defrost board.

    Welcome to HVAC-Talk

    This section is primarily a new member welcome forum. Your question would be better asked in the Residential HVAC forum in the "Arpa Zone" section. Our pros can give general information, but not detailed DIY advice because of safety concerns.

    The statement below is my signature and just my overall feeling towards our industry and does not necessarily pertain to you nor this thread.


    There really isn't a legitimate excuse for not doing the job correctly!
