Had to replace a bad TXV in this brand new unit.
The A/H didn't come with a TXV so they added one.
Nice ZIP TIE holding the sensing bulb. A ongoing theme over here.
I replaced it and used a proper sensing bulbe strap.
Here's what is funny.
This is a 16i or whatever. Two Stage heat Pump they sold them.
Couldn't help but to notice the lack of the control board with the speed adjustements for the variable speed blower.
That's because there IS no veriable speed blower!
They just used a standard A/H with a simple on/off relay (not even the 80 second fan manager came with this blower), and added the TXV for the 16i and called it good!
So it ran HIGH SPEED for everything, cont fan, 1st stage cool, etc!
I added that second relay there so that it is ran to the LOW speed tap by default unless Y2 is energized then HIGH speed tap is used so they get SOME sorts of two speed blower with this 2 stage system!
They said they could not fit the wider Variable Speed A/H in these closets (installed two 16i's at this home) so this was the only choice.
Why facking bother??? That's an insult to a high end system by mis matching it like this and otherwise being half ass'd!
