    Always use the flare nuts that come with unit, not with lineset. This is stated in most manuals and stressed during factory training.

    Bit hard to do/verify on a service call...

    Exactly. I didn't install the unit. But I'm gonna attempt to redo the flare and use the same nut. Hopefully it works. I don't want a call back.

    I don’t know about anyone else, but I ALWAYS cut the flares off the line sets and make my own. I’ve had a lot of problems with the factory flares on line sets. In fact, take a real close look at your next line set, and I’ll bet you will notice imperfections in the flare.
    If God didn't want us to eat animals... He wouldn't have made them out of MEAT.

    Rare to find a good one!

    Tubing cutters, and zoom lock fittings. They even make fittings for the outdoor unit already pre-flared. No soldering needed.
