    Those were actually pretty good systems, I did a lot of PM's on them when I worked for a large a/c company back then, never seen not one with any kind of failure. What a contrast to the new Lennox...

    I was taught long ago, approach is everything in life, I like to approach in a kind and sometimes humerous way, it just makes me feel better. :grin2:

    Sometimes if the furnace is still in good shape we just do a coil and condenser, because in Houston a 25 year old furnace could look like 5 years old, because we just hardly ever use them. One thing...

    Well, I went to the early Church service, I thought maybe God might have some input, but He didn't speak a word on this issue. :grin2:

    Is this furnace setting on stands that are in the pan? if not, this is normal, why? because if the furnace is setting down into the pan, and the coil ever overflows, the insulation will be soaked and...

    As a service tech, I would have no problem with the disconnect being there. If you want it moved, you will have to pay an electrician and a someone to repair the stucco after it's removed. :grin2:

    Manual J's are not perfect, and we are not there to see your home and the the way it's designed or how well it's sealed up, so we would just be guessing from cyberspace.

    It really depends on where you live. In Houston, we use 50,000 btu furnaces for 3-tons of air. States with colder temps probably need more furnace btu's for the same size a/c, so a different furnace...

    Just guessing here, maybe he just figured that the refrigerant leak from the txv had saturated the inside of the air handler so much, he didn't want to check for a leak at the time.

    If the company that installed that unit would have registered it online, the compressor would still be in warranty. I ran the serial number, so because they didn't, it only has a 5 year warranty.

    I really doubt a suction line could be bent like that without a massive crimp, unless you're using a bender or 90, and the unit would still cool properly.

    I'm trying to see whats wrong, I'm guessing the last picture is when the job is finished, liquid line looks fine to me, unless someone see's something I don't. :grin2:

    If a roll out is tripping out on just extreme heat, not caused by flames, you have yourself one very hot furnace. I would not be firing that thing back up until you get a "real" tech out there....

    Paul, you used the word "cycle" a few times, cycle to me means the system or compressor is shuting down completely, then restarting, is this whats happening?
