    It's tripping for a reason. Is it in the correct location, is it set too high? Start with the easy stuff first.

    getting to those gems is a chore

    you gonna have to actually get to it

    has someone else been working on it?
    It`s better to be silent and thought the fool; than speak and remove all doubt.

    I have found two things.......they are connected with stake ons. I have had them just lose and some that got water in them and caused corroded connections. Either way....check the connections near the freeze stat.

    I agree. A common issue I've found on newer Lennox package units is the freeze stats are not properly secured or fully seated on the coil end returns. I've got big hands & sometimes they are difficult to access. Hope this helps.

    now the following may have nothing to do with your issue but u swear pressures are good & i ASSume air flow is as well . . . . . . i tend to see this on Lennox L series units w/ economizer option when there is a cooling demand on days/nights when the OD ambient is low & that cold air is being directly introduced causing switch to open & or a cooling demand when mechanical cooling is running with small % of OD being introduced . . . sometimes its more of the IMC logging it than it being an issue relating to system operation . . . at least for the L series freeze stat issues i encounter when i know airflow is correct & i see dozens & dozens of L's in a months span . . . if there is no economizer id check into airflow, possible positioning like others mentioned or maybe the switch itself acts up intermittently . . .
