I am having issues with my Bryant Heat Pump in AC mode. I've called a tech in to look at it but was not satisfied with his recommendations. It has started about a weak ago. Noticed the ac not cooling as it should. Next day noticed the breaker tripped. I reset it and it worked for a bit then noticed a little while later.. same thing. Here's all the info that I can think of...
HeatPump: Bryant 265ANA042 3.5Ton
Furnace: Bryant 355CAV042
Thermostat: Bryant Evolution
Heat Pump is just over 1 year old, house is just over 1 year old
Breaker trips more frequently in warmer weather (28C/ 82F). We have been having warmer that usual weather of late.
Circuit Breaker is 40Amp, is warm (not hot) when heat pump is running
72 -Thermal Cut Out (7 events)
82 -Thermal Lock Out (1 event) message in service menu
Furnace (air handler) still blows without heat pump, although filter is very dirty. I will replace asap.
Tech mentioned: start up draw is 35amps, running is 9-10amps, everything else seams fine. Mentioned that I should take a look at breaker, possible hard start kit.
One last thing, I accidentally shut off the main breaker a day before I noticed the first tripped breaker. Don't know if that may have messed up the thermostat settings.
Thanks for your help
