    Confused FHP Not heating

    I went to a service call today for no heating. i get there and the water cooled unit was off on low pressure due to a tripped breaker on the well pump. so i reset the unit and get it back on line. i took pressure and temp readings this is what i got.

    -58 degree supply water
    -55 degree return air
    -72 degree discharge air
    -32psi on suction
    -215psi on head

    im not sure whats going on here but i did find oil at the joint that was sweated to the txv that someone replaced previous to me (it looked like crap) so im assuming that it is leaking. what should i do now? this was my first service call on my own btw im new to the field (about 10 months in)

    There are open area's of the site located towards the bottom/ middle of the main page.

    This current layout and the site for that matter is currently under a few changes. Please bear with us as we make these changes, It won't be long

    I am going to relocate you're question/thread to another open area of the site, where you will receive some more exposure to you're question.

    No worries, I will leave a redirect here for you to follow.

    BTW, welcome and you're friend was correct. This site is an awesome tool for learning and sharing

    Greasing a few palms along the way never hurts either
