Last November we've had an outside XR12 Trane unit installed by one of the larger local AC companies. During the first really hot week we've started to have problems.
First technicial that visited found a small freon leak in a dryer, replaced it -- yet the AC didn't cool.
The second tech diagnosed the problem being with reversing valve being stuck, and right now we're waiting for the third tech to come out with the part and replace it.
The questions I have are:
1) Could the two problems damage anything else in the unit (I understand that compressor overheated and shut itself off) ?
2) Given it's a new unit, would these two problem justify unit replacement, rather then repair?
3) If answer to the (2) is yes, is there a universe in which a company would agree to do it?
Thanks to all who will respond!
