    You need a contractor to check it.

    It could be some thing real simple, or more complicated.

    i try to stay away from "diy" but it sounds to me like you need to call a contractor and tell him your framastatic gasket in the kanuter valve is leaking. glad i could help

    That's not nice torino. You know damned well the kanuter valve doesn't have a gasket.

    Truly though, you need to have an HVAC technician find the problem. Could be many things, some simple, some not so simple. A simple thing can become not so simple really fast when someone not knowing what they are doing is messing with it.

    first of all, shut the power off to the unit, have your friend turn the thermostat to cool while you stand out side, you should hear the reversing valve click, if not it is probably stuck in the heating position, a good service tech should be able to replace it for around 300-400 dollars. depending on where you live.

    There is no way in hell Im changing a RV valve for 300 bucks.

    $89 an hour, plus part, recovery, refer, torch...etc.

    No way.

    if the reversing valve is stuck, take loose the hot wire from the valve touch it back to the terminal for 2 sec. take the wire off. do this about ten times or so till you hear the whoosh. it should free up the rev. valve. or was that process for the kanuter valve. oh well.
